CBD is the acronym used for Cannabidiol, one of the compounds found in cannabis plants. It is shown to help people dealing with a wide variety of health issues without inducing a psychoactive experience or ‘high.’
Yes. UK law is very clear on the cultivation, sale, and use of CBD. With the correct licensing in place CBD products can be legally sold and there is no impediment to their consumption.
CBD is becoming legalised in many countries around Europe, but we always recommend checking the CBD laws in the country you are travelling to first. Our bottles of oil are suitable for travel, containing 10mg of liquid. The tea and honey can be put in hold or hand luggage with no issue.
The word “Cannabis” encompasses various strains of plant – the two best known being Hemp and Marijuana. Hemp contains low levels of the psychoactive compound THC, whereas Marijuana can be cultivated to produce very high levels of it. Our products originate as Hemp plants, which are grown specifically for CBD.
THC stands for Tetrahydrocannabinol, the psychoactive compound that produces a ‘high’ when consumed. It is cultivated within the Marijuana plant, and whilst it does occur in other strains of the Cannabis Sativa plant it is a legal substance in concentrations of up to 0.2%. The Body and Mind Botanicals crops contain under the legal maximum of THC.
Yes – all our plants are grown in certified organic farms. We grow Cannabis crops in Lithuania and Estonia, where we only use family-run farms that understand the need for organic cultivation.

Everyone has different levels of CBD they can absorb at a time, therefore it is key to start on a low dose and work your way up until you find the right dose for you. The right dose, taken regularly is key. It can take a week or so for the effects of CBD oil to really pay of, so increasing the dose at this point may end up being too much, only the individual can determine what level is most effective for them. We suggest starting with 1 drop 3 times a day of the 150mg, increasing to 2 drops 3 times a day. Once you are at 3 drops 3 times a day, its worth looking at moving up to 300mg. If already on 300mg move to 500mg and if already on 500mg move to 1000mg.
Most people with sleeping issues or insomnia respond well to the 300mg oil and CBD Tea combo. Many people we have spoken to also suffer with stress, anxiety or pain which contributes to their sleep issues. They take the oil 3 times a day; breakfast, lunch and dinner time and then the tea in the evening before bed to help them relax, unwind and send them off to sleep.
