Well it won’t make you high!

CBD is the medical abbreviation for cannabidiol, a chemical found in abundance in the cannabis plant. CBD is one of at least 113 cannabinoids found in the Sativa L. plant, and has a growing reputation for its therapeutic and healing properties, though it’s important to understand this is not yet scientifically proven. Unlike its more famous cannabinoid partner, THC (tetrahydrocannabinol), CBD will not make you high and anyway, we ensure that all of our products are rigorous tested and completely legal.

CBD has a natural reaction

Every human body has an endocannabinoid system which consists of tiny receptors that play a vital role in helping to regulate our mood, pain and sleep. Pretty smart! CBD helps those receptors to do what’s needed to stimulate and control beneficial changes within the body. So if the body gets depleted in any way and needs to be supplemented, a regular dose of CBD will help in the same way as any food supplement.

We believe in fact not fiction

You won’t see Clearly CBD making claims about the benefits of CBD that can’t be backed up by proper and detailed scientific research. So if you have a question about any of the products in our range, we will answer making sure we separate hype from science.
