What is CBD?

CBD is one of over 100 naturally occurring cannabinoid compounds found in the hemp plant a close relative of the cannabis plant. Many of these cannabinoids are non-psychoactive, and CBD is one of these. This is a major difference from the marijuana plant as the most common cannabinoid in marijuana is THC, which gives off a psychoactive effect known as a “high”.

The different species of cannabis

CBD is obtained from the flower and leaves of the hemp plant and is a natural botanical with a low concentration of  THC.  Therefore, it doesn’t allow for a psychoactive effect and has become appealing to many.

Our CBD contains less than 0.05% THC which is well below the UK legal limit of 0.2%.

Over the years, remarkable advancements have been made with regards to hemp CBD products. This consists of all kinds of vape, cosmetic, oil products, and more.

Many People have given testimonials about how CBD has helped with a wide range of symptoms.

How can CBD be consumed?

CBD oil can be consumed as a nutritional supplement orally through the means of drops, capsules, edibles, e-liquids or by application to the skin such as creams or balms.


No. CBD is completely non-psychoactive, as well as being non-toxic and non-addictive. The other more famous compound THC, is found in marijuana and is responsible for the ‘high’ feeling; the disordered thinking, the dry eyes and the increased appetite. THC is restricted under UK law. CBD is unrestricted as it has no psychoactive effects it will also not show up in any drug tests.


It’s a particularly interesting time for research into CBD. When it was first discovered in 1940 it was thought not to have any pharmaceutical properties at all. Further investigation has shown that CBD may interact with the human body in a number of ways.


Vaping is considered one of the easiest and efficient ways to absorb CBD. However the most effective way to maximise its benefits is to use CBD Oil/Drops into the mouth where the body can absorb it to its maximum. 

CBD molecules have been found to interact with cannabinoid receptors all over the human body to maintain its natural chemical balance. 

Research also points towards CBD’s ability to regulate levels of serotonin, the primary chemical thought to be responsible for mood and overall happiness. Maintaining serotonin balance can reduce stress and boost your energy. It could also help relieve symptoms of pain, epilepsy, muscle recovery, arthritis, inflammation, insomnia, depression and anxiety.

Cannabinoid receptors exist both in the brain and all over the human body, forming the endocannabinoid system. There are two kinds of receptors in this system – CB1 and CB2. CB1 receptors have been found primarily in the brain and central nervous system. CB2 receptors can be found in the immune system, as well as the digestive tract, pancreas and spleen. When CBD is absorbed, it does not interact with these receptors directly, but appears to activate the receptors of cells that do. This indirect effect, allows the natural cannabinoids to work more efficiently.

As these receptors have been discovered in so many parts of the body, researchers have been investigating all of CBD’s potential interactions.

It is important to remember that everyone is different when it comes to compounds such as CBD. It is recommended that you limit the amount you vape, rub on your body using balm or ingest through drops to no more than 200mg of CBD per day. Our 10ml bottles contain 100mg, 200mg, 300mg 500mg and 1000mg each. It’s worth starting with a low dosage when you vape, use balm or use the CBD drops. Afterwards, you can increase the dosage to suit your individual requirements.

The Difference Between CBD with Hemp Seed Oil and CBD with Extra Virgin Olive Oil.

CBD is often mixed with hemp seed oil, coconut oil, olive oil or sunflower oil, making the CBD extraction into CBD Oil.

Is Hemp Seed Oil better than Extra Virgin Olive Oil? No, essentially, they work in the same way as to carry the oil containing CBD, organic compounds and flavourings.

– CBD Oil with Extra Virgin Olive Oil

For people who do not like the taste of CBD with Hemp Seed Oil, the CBD with Extra Virgin Olive Oil is highly recommended. The taste of CBD with hemp seed oil is often described as bitter.

The CBD with Extra Virgin Olive Oil tastes like Olives; for many people this is a solution that previously used CBD Oil with hemp seed oil and had problems with the bitter taste of hemp seed Oil.

CBD Freedom makes its CBD Oil from the tops of the hemp plant and not from the entire hemp plant, so that only the best of the Hemp plant is used for the CBD Oil.


Our eliquids only contain PG, VG, flavourings and high quality CBD. The eliquids contain no nicotine and are designed to work in all vaping devices.

Our oil and barm products only contain natural ingredients and high quality CBD.

The CBD that we use is created using a CO2 extraction process, which separates individual CBD molecules from its starting material, the hemp plant. This process produces a very pure CBD (99%+)  with no pesticides or heavy metal present. We have lab reports on our web site to demonstrate this.

Why choose CBD Freedom Products?

CBD Freedom is one of the manufacturers that source the CBD from Switzerland. Which also makes the CBD compound with 0% THC.

CBD Freedom Products are only made from the best Hemp buds and not from the stems and / or branches of the hemp plant, which is of great quality.

BE AWARE – Example:

A full spectrum product may say 3000mg on the packaging. This is false advertising attempting to give the customer the impression that they are buying a 3000mg CBD product, and, this is the amount of hemp oil in the product, not the amount of CBD. The product may only have a concentration of 100mg of CBD. Always look and ask for concentration of the CBD within the container.
