What Is CBD?
CBD, which is short for cannabidiol, is one of many different cannabinoids found in the cannabis plant. To put it simply, a cannabinoid is just a naturally occurring substance found within the cannabis plant. One of the more commonly known cannabinoids within the plant is THC. Unlike THC, CBD is legal and does not cause users to experience a high. For CBD products to remain legal in the UK, they must contain less than 0.2% THC. For this reason, CBD is often extracted from the hemp variety of the plant, as the hemp plant contains only small amounts of THC. The health benefits of CBD are yet to be fully understood as research is still in its early phases, so we make no claims about such benefits. CBD has grown in popularity in recent years thanks to the new and exciting methods of consumption such as CBD drinks and edibles.
What Is A CBD Shot?
CBD shots are small drinks which provide a single dose of CBD alongside flavours and other ingredients. They are pre-dosed which means they contain the exact dose without you having to measure out how much to take.
Some of our shots can be consumed and enjoyed on their own, whilst others are recommended to be added to another drink. Please check the product page or label for advice on each product.
How Many Shots Should I Use?
Each CBD shot will come with guidance that will give a suggested number of shots to use. However, how many bottles or beverages you choose to use is completely down to personal preference in seeing what works best for you. You may find that using one in the morning and one in the evening works well, or you may only need one shot per day. One thing that is important to stress is that with CBD it is always best to start with a low dosage and slowly build your way up should you need it. Consuming too much CBD may result in some unwanted side effects, so we would not suggest consuming more than 70mg of CBD per day.
Why Choose CBD Shots?
The main reasons for choosing CBD shots are for easy dosing and convenience. CBD shots offer easy dosing which saves the need for having to count out the number of capsules or oil drops you need to take. They also offer a super convenient and easy way to take CBD whilst on the go. Simply take the shot in a matter of seconds, which is much quicker than other methods of taking CBD.
Are CBD Shots Legal?
Yes, CBD shots are legal in the UK as they contain less than 0.2% THC, which is the psychoactive compound within cannabis which causes the high.
Will CBD Shots Get Me High?
No, CBD shots will not get you high as they contain less than 0.2% THC in order to remain in line with UK laws. Whilst some products contain zero THC, even 0.2% is nowhere near enough in order to make the user feel high. You can therefore enjoy CBD shots without worrying about getting high.
Do CBD Shots Contain THC?
Some CBD shots may contain up to 0.2% THC, although others are completely free of THC. It is best to check the ingredients and the product page to determine the level of THC.
Can I Become Addicted To CBD Shots?
No, CBD is a non-addictive substance from the cannabis plant which means you wont become addicted to CBD shots. The substance within cannabis which is addictive is THC. Our CBD products all contain less than 0.2% THC, which is not enough to cause someone to become addicted.
Are CBD Shots Safe?
Yes, CBD shots are safe. The WHO has classified CBD as safe for human consumption. However, you should be mindful not to consume too much CBD as doing so could result in some unwanted side effects such as drowsiness and diarrhea. It is recommended that you do not consume more than 70mg of CBD per day. Additionally, it is recommended that you consult your doctor before you begin using CBD, as CBD might not be right for everyone. This is particularly true if you take certain prescription medications where the reaction with CBD may not be known. If you are pregnant or breastfeeding then you should avoid using CBD products.
Should I Choose Broad or Full Spectrum CBD?
Whether you opt for full spectrum or broad spectrum CBD shots is an important choice you need to make. To make the choice, you first need to understand the difference between the two types of CBD.
Full spectrum CBD shots contain the full range of cannabinoids, flavonoids and natural terpenes from the hemp plant. This means they contain up to 0.2% THC. It also means you’re more likely to benefit from the entourage effect, which is the theory that the cannabinoids work together in unison to provide a greater effect than they would have individually.
On the other hand, broad spectrum CBD shots contain just a broad spectrum of cannabinoids from the hemp plant, which crucially means that the THC is completely removed. As a result, you’re less likely to benefit from the entourage effect. However, they are favoured by people who are conscious of not consuming THC.
Can CBD Help Alleviate Pain?
No, we would not recommend using CBD shots to help alleviate pain. If you are experiencing pain then we would recommend that you consult with your doctor to find a potential solution, rather than using CBD.
Can CBD Help With Anxiety?
No, CBD shots are not designed to help treat, prevent or cure anxiety. Should you be suffering from anxiety then we would recommend talking with your doctor or a medical professional to find potential solutions to improving your anxiety.
