Common questions

What is CBD?

CBD, short for cannabidiol, is a beneficial compound found in the cannabis plant. It’s one of many naturally occurring phytocannabinoids that are largely responsible for the health effects of cannabis. CBD is usually sourced from hemp, a low-THC variety of cannabis.

How much CBD should I take?

The optimal CBD dosage is different for everyone. It’s influenced by many factors, like how much you weigh, your genetics, and why you’re taking CBD. That’s why we recommend starting with a 10-15 mg dose, waiting a few hours to see the effects, and increasing as needed. Do this until you settle on a dose that gives you the desired results.

What is the endocannabinoid system?

The endocannabinoid system (ECS) is a network of endocannabinoids produced by your body, the enzymes that build and break them down, and the cannabinoid receptors they activate. It regulates immunity, metabolism, mood, pain, sleep, and other vital functions to maintain homeostasis, a healthy state of internal balance. CBD can interact with the ECS, supporting its many beneficial functions. 

How can CBD benefit my workouts?

CBD is a great addition to your post-workout recovery routine. More specifically, CBD can help you recuperate by alleviating exercise-induced inflammation, promoting calmness and relaxation, and supporting the overall balancing effects of your endocannabinoid system.

What’s the difference between your CBD oil and patches?

CBD oil great is absorbed directly into the blood, which makes it great for whole-body recovery after a workout. Although our transdermal patches can also reach the blood vessels and produce body-wide effects, they mostly work in the specific area where you apply them. As such, they’re better suited for localised concerns.

Does CBD make you high?

CBD can’t get you high because it lacks the intoxicating effects of its cousin THC.

Is CBD safe and legal?

According to numerous studies, CBD is a safe compound. CBD is 100% legal in the UK, provided that it’s sourced from hemp varieties approved by the EU and the finished product has less than 1 mg of THC in the container. CBD is also legal in most of Europe.

Do your products have medicinal benefits?

Our CBD products are not meant to cure or treat any disease, medical condition, or symptom.

What is CBD oil?

CBD oil is a food supplement that combines hemp-derived CBD with a plant-based oil like coconut MCT oil. You use it by placing drops of oil under the tongue, so the CBD can be absorbed directly into the blood and bypass the digestive system. CBD oil is the most popular way to take CBD and is used by millions of people in the UK and other countries.

More and more fitness enthusiasts in the UK are incorporating CBD oil and other CBD products into their routine. CBD is especially useful as a post-workout recovery aid, helping you relax and recuperate after strenuous exercise. 

Unfortunately, not all CBD products have the same level of quality. Since the UK market is unregulated, there are many subpar offerings. Some products contain less CBD than advertised, while others have too much THC or carry contaminants. 

Here at Green Factor, we understand the importance of quality and transparency. As such, we take care to control every step of the manufacturing process.

We start with only the finest, organic, non-GMO hemp plants cultivated in the US and Europe. Next, our hemp is extracted using carbon dioxide (CO2), the mildest and most advanced method of CBD extraction. 

Then, the CBD-rich extract is refined and combined with other natural ingredients to create our oils, patches, and other products. 

Finally, we send our CBD products for testing at a third-party laboratory to verify their potency and safety. You can retrieve the test results by scanning the QR code on your product or checking our website directly.
