What is CBD? If you don't know, then you've come to the right place. CBD, also known as Cannabidiol, is a non-psychoactive cannabinoid compound found in the hemp plant. This means that CBD does not cause a 'high' but has the positive effects associated with marijuana. CBD acts on the Endocannabinoid system in the body; this system works to balance the essential functions within the body. This system can control pain management, immune system functionality and mental conditions. CBD is a natural product that is safe for human consumption, because of this, scientific testing has shown that there can be significant health benefits to consuming CBD products.
CBD is extracted from the hemp plant; specifically, Bull Brand CBD is from the Sativa variety because of its low quantities of THC and high concentrations of CBD. Our selected growers are based in the US; the hemp is grown without pesticides and in contaminant-free soil. This allows us to guarantee the quality of our CBD products. There are three main processes to extracting CBD from the hemp plant. The first two are inefficient and produce a lower quality product, these are known as Carrier Oil Extraction and Isopropyl Extraction. Based on the above, this is why we use Supercritical CO2 Extraction which while the most expensive method, safeguards the beneficial qualities in CBD. This approach creates the purest CBD oils for us to use in our products.
Legalities of CBD
Even though we use the Sativa variety, there is a possibility that THC is present in the raw oil. We, therefore, run multiple tests that measure the chemical make up of the product. THC (which causes a high) needs to be trace or less within the product. If the concentration of THC is higher than trace, the product will not be legal for sale in the UK. With Bull Brand CBD products you can rest assured that they are all legal and safe for consumption. We do the hard work to ensure that you don't fall found of the law.

Here at Bull Brand we only stock E-Liquid CBD products. However, that doesn't mean that there aren't other options available. CBD can be incorporated into various products such as cosmetic creams and lotions, oral drops, sublingual sprays, edible capsules, sweets, drinks and even pet products. When choosing a product be careful to review the strength profile of the CBD within the product. Common strengths range from 100mg to 400mg, naturally the higher the mg, the stronger the CBD concentration. It's crucial for you to find a strength that works for you. We always recommend starting weaker and working through the strength profiles until you find the correct concentration for you.
