IS CBD SAFE?
Cannabidiol (CBD) is a naturally occurring active compound of the hemp plant. Due to the health benefits, it has grown in popularity over the last few years in the form of oils, gummies, edibles or drinks and has been legalised in many countries! In this blog post, we’ll share some more details about CBD, the use of it in our drinks and the effect it has, its legality in the UK and how to use it.
Though research on CBD's safety is still ongoing, many studies have shown that it has few side effects and can be beneficial for certain conditions such as chronic pain, anxiety, depression, and sleep issues. Currently, the World Health Organisation has deemed CBD 100% safe, it’s completely legal in the UK and currently going through regulation with the Food Standards Agency (FSA) in the UK. With more research being done every day, we may soon have a better understanding of the positive effects of CBD. We’d like to research lifestyle benefits in more detail – our dream is to don our lab coats and conduct our own scientific study.
WHAT ARE CBD DRINKS?
Drinks containing CBD are popular because they’re a refreshing and delicious way to add CBD into their daily lives. Drinks like ours may be made using water-soluble CBD, which offers a balanced and energizing method to get your daily dose and benefit from this super-powered plant!
You can enjoy INTUNE CBD drinks at any time of day or night - from desk to dancefloor! They will give you all the good stuff without making you feel high, tired or giving you an unwelcome sugar rush. Did we mention that they are also really tasty? In fact, all of our Originals CBD drinks have won Great Taste Awards in the UK - something we’re really proud of! If you don't know the first thing about CBD, we recommend CBD drinks as a great starting point that will give you a balanced, lifestyle dose to add a pep to your step.
Everyone experiences the effects of CBD differently thanks to our beautifully unique endocannabinoid systems. But, we can guarantee that you'll love the flavour of INTUNE CBD drinks and the added bonus of some kick-ass health and wellness benefits will make your day. Discover more.
IS CBD LEGAL IN THE UK?
Yes! CBD doesn’t contain any psychoactive compounds, meaning it can’t get you high and is therefore legal in the UK. Each can of our CBD beverages contains 10mg of CBD, which we believe is the perfect lifestyle dose per serving. As THC is the illegal element that makes you high, there are strict regulations about how much THC is allowed in CBD products. All of our tasty drinks comply with the maximum 0.2% volume allowed in the UK.
Although the Food Standards Organisation (FSA) in the UK is currently regulating CBD, a select few companies, including ours, have been granted advanced certification to trade.
IS CBD ADDICTIVE? HOW MUCH CBD CAN I TAKE?
The World Health Organization states that CBD is not addictive and may even have advantages to the opposite effect. Watch this space for updates on this research!
Our cans contain 10mg of high-quality CBD, meaning it’s pretty difficult to hit this limit within a day! The maximum recommended daily CBD intake in the UK is 70mg.
INTUNE CBD drinks can be combined with other CBD products when kept within this healthy range. We always advise looking for high-quality and traceable CBD products in order to get the best benefits from them.
CAN I DRIVE AFTER DRINKING CBD?
As CBD has no THC (the chemical within the cannabis plant that gets you high), there is no problem with taking CBD and driving.
WHAT DOES CBD DO?
Because of how well it interacts with our endocannabinoid system, CBD provides a wide range of health and wellness benefits. And contrary to common knowledge, it’s not just an aid for a good night’s sleep! There are loads of other great benefits that you can enjoy any time of the day:
- Better focus
- Reduced anxiety
- Reduced inflammation
- Mental clarity
- Improved sleep
- Feeling of balance
As you can see, CBD is a superhero! It can help with so many body functions and health concerns, but even if you don't have a particular issue, a lifestyle dose of CBD, like in our CBD drinks, can give you great results. Why not try one now?
All current research says that CBD is a safe, legal and non-addictive product that can safely be incorporated into your daily life. Our CBD drinks are a great way to dip your toe into the world of CBD and benefit from all of the great effects of our balanced lifestyle dose. Not to mention, they taste great!
