CBD, short for cannabidiol, is the second most prominent compound - or cannabinoid - found in cannabis. CBD has numerous health boosting properties and is used as a food supplement to support everyday wellbeing. It is non-psychoactive so will not cause a high.
HOW DO I USE CBD?
CBD Oil is used sublingually, under the tongue. Each bottle comes with a pipette and you simply put the drops under your tongue, hold for 3 minutes, then swallow. The CBD oil is absorbed by the very thin membrane under the tongue.
CBD Vape is used by adding to your e-cigarette's tank and vaping. All of our CBD vapes are ready to use straight out of the box and can be can either be vaped on their own or mixed in with your favourite flavoured e-liquid - we like to use a ratio of 50% CBD e-liquid with 50% regular juice but its entirely up to you. Please follow your device's instructions for filling your e-cigarette.
