Common questions

What is CBD?

Cannabidiol (CBD) is a non-intoxicating compound found in the cannabis plant. It’s one of more than 100 natural substances called phytocannabinoids, which produce most of the health effects of cannabis. CBD is usually sourced from hemp, a legal, low-THC cannabis variety.

How much CBD should I take?

The right amount of CBD to take is unique to you because it’s influenced by many factors, like your body weight, genetics, and the reason you’re taking CBD. We recommend starting with 10-15 mg of CBD and waiting a few hours. If you don’t the desired effect, increase as needed. 

What is the endocannabinoid system?

The endocannabinoid system (ECS) is a vital system that maintains homeostasis, a healthy state of balance. It achieves this by regulating your immunity, metabolism, mood, stress, sleep, and other essential functions. The ECS is made up of cannabinoid receptors, special enzymes, and endocannabinoids made inside the body. CBD can influence this system, producing beneficial effects in the process.

How can CBD promote wellness?

CBD can help maintain overall health and well-being by supporting the optimal functioning of your body’s endocannabinoid system.

What are CBD gummies?

CBD gummies are delicious edible sweets that contain pure CBD without any THC. They offer the most pleasant and convenient way of getting a precise dose of hemp-derived CBD. 

Does CBD make you high?

CBD doesn’t have any mind-altering effects, so it can’t get you high.

Is CBD safe and legal?

According to comprehensive research, CBD is a safe substance. CBD is not on the UK’s list of controlled substances, which means it’s perfectly legal. However, it has to be derived from EU-approved hemp varieties and CBD products can’t have more than 1 mg of THC per container. CBD is also legal in many other European countries. 

Do your products have medicinal benefits?

Green Factor CBD products are not intended for treating or curing any medical condition or symptom.

What is CBD oil?

CBD oil is the most popular type of cannabidiol product. Inside you’ll find two main ingredients: hemp-derived CBD extract dissolved in coconut MCT oil or another plant-based oil. Drops of CBD oil are placed under the tongue, allowing for fast, effective absorption. CBD oil is taken by millions of people in the UK and many other countries.

CBD is widely available in the UK. The difficult part is finding a high-quality CBD product from a brand you can trust.

The CBD industry is not heavily regulated and many products fail to meet basic requirements such as containing the correct level of CBD and THC, being free of contaminants, and using an organic hemp source. 

That’s why quality and transparency are our top priorities at Green Factor. This is best exemplified by the careful process we use to make our CBD products.

It all begins with organic, non-GMO hemp grown in the US and Europe. The raw plant material is extracted with carbon dioxide (CO2), the safest, mildest, and most advanced method of CBD extraction.

Next, the CBD-rich extract is refined to remove THC and blended with other natural ingredients to formulate our CBD oils, gummies, and other products.

Last but not least, our products are tested by a third-party laboratory to confirm their potency, safety, and consistency. You can look up the results of these tests with your product QR code or by simply going to our website.
