What is CBD?
Cannabidiol, or CBD for short, is one of the more than 100 naturally occurring cannabinoid compounds found in the cannabis plant. It is a phytocannabinoid, or plant-based cannabinoid, that interacts with the body’s naturally occurring system of endocannabinoids.
Both hemp and marijuana are forms of cannabis. Marijuana is known primarily for its abundance of delta-9 tetrahydrocannabinol, or THC, which causes feelings of being “high.” By definition, hemp must not contain more than 0.2% THC (0.3% in the U.S.) and is more commonly known for its industrial uses. However, in recent years, hemp has grown in popularity for its ability to produce high levels of CBD, which does not make users intoxicated or high, but offers other benefits.
Gibson’s Goodology strictly utilises pure hemp-derived CBD isolate. This means that our CBD is extracted solely from hemp plants and then isolated to remove the presence of any THC and other cannabinoids.
What is the source of our CBD?
The hemp used to make our CBD is grown in Colorado in compliance with the U.S. and Colorado departments of agriculture rules and regulations for hemp farming. Our CBD is extracted and isolated in an ISO- and GMP-certified lab in Colorado in compliance with the state health department’s rules and regulations for CBD production. The isolate is then transported directly to our manufacturer in the U.K.
What does it do?
CBD unlocks the body’s natural processes to regulate certain functions. The human body naturally tries to fight things like inflammation, seizures, muscle spasms and generalized anxiety. CBD attaches to receptors in the body’s endocannabinoid system to help the body more efficiently regulate itself. This increased efficiency highlights CBD’s ability to promote homeostasis, or balance, and overall wellness.
What is the recommended dosage?
The U.K. Food Standards Agency recommends that adults not take more than 70mg of CBD per day. Our drinks contain 25mg of CBD per 250ml serving.
Everyone’s body is different, as is their endocannabinoid system. We encourage consistent use, gradually increasing intake at similar times of day, over a period of at least 14 days, until finding the dosage that produces the desired effects. Consistency is key, so no matter the size, we recommend daily servings at approximately the same times.
