Broad Spectrum CBD Oil: Frequently Asked Questions

What is the difference between full spectrum, broad spectrum, and isolate?
The amount of organic cannabinoids present. CBD is just one of many cannabinoids found in the hemp plant, and many others are shown to have synergistic properties when used alongside CBD. Full spectrum CBD is the completely unaltered resin taken straight from a low-THC plant. Broad spectrum is the same except the THC is completely removed. As THC content is only allowed under 0.2% by UK law, Broad Spectrum CBD is the safest way to enjoy CBD.
All of our CBD oils come in our unique graduated pipette bottles. Simply work out your dose in ml and use the pipette to measure out exactly how much you need! The most common method for taking CBD oil is to squeeze the oil out under your tongue. This allows the oil to be absorbed by your mucus membrane very quickly. Alternatively, you can ingest the oil by adding it to food or drink. Many of our customers start their day off with CBD in their morning brew!
Broad spectrum CBD – also known as full spectrum CBD is made using unprocessed ‘raw’ hemp resin, and therefore contains a wide variety of organic compounds which are normally removed in the refinement process. These compounds work alongside CBD in the body to create a unique, potent experience known as the ‘entourage effect’. The therapeutic benefits of the entourage effect have been suggested and explored by Dr. Ethan Russo, a leading medical researcher in the field of medical cannabis. The entourage effect is said to make many of CBD’s properties, such as its anti-inflammation and anti-anxiety properties even more powerful, and as such is the product of choice for many looking for alternative remedies.
Broad spectrum CBD is completely safe. While broad spectrum CBD contains many other cannabinoids, all potentially harmful compounds are completely removed in our extraction process. Our resins are sourced from our own hemp farms in the EU, so we know exactly what’s in them. On top of that, we send our oils out for regular third-party lab testing to ensure consistent quality in every bottle. The reports from these tests are available for anyone to see on our website, so you can be sure you’re buying premium, legitimate products.
That depends on your specific needs. Those wanting to explore the effects of CBD on treating mild conditions or promoting general wellbeing should find 500 mg – 1500 mg CBD oil to be the perfect for them. Others looking to address more serious conditions such as chronic pain, anxiety, or insomnia might find higher dose bottles (2000 mg – 3000 mg CBD) more appropriate. Everyone is different, and CBD is a highly personalised experience, so we encourage anyone trying CBD for the first time to keep a written record of their doses and perceived outcomes. Trying out different doses is the best way of finding out what works for you. Read more about how to determine how much CBD you can take here

Pure CBD Oil: Frequently Asked Questions

What is the difference between full spectrum, broad spectrum, and Pure isolate?
The amount of organic cannabinoids present. CBD is just one of many cannabinoids found in the hemp plant, and many others are shown to have synergistic properties when used alongside CBD. CBD isolate oils are made with our 99.9% CBD isolate. Full spectrum CBD is the completely unaltered resin taken straight from a low-THC plant. Broad spectrum is the same except the THC is completely removed. A raw hemp extract is a honey-like substance that contains many compounds from the plant, or “cannabinoids”, CBD is just one of these. This raw extract is known as “full-spectrum”. After removing the THC you are left with “broad-spectrum” which contains a range of non-psychoactive cannabinoids. From this honey-like resin you can extract the pure CBD crystal; this is known as CBD isolate. As THC content is only allowed under 0.2% by UK law, Broad Spectrum CBD is the safest way to enjoy CBD.

CBD Capsules: Frequently Asked Questions

How do I use CBD capsules?
Just like any other supplement. Simply take your intended dosage either once or twice a day with a glass of water. The capsules themselves look almost exactly like fish oil capsules, so they’re a quick and easy way to add CBD into your daily/nightly routine.
CBD capsules provide convenient, hassle-free dosing. While capsules cause CBD bioavailability to be slightly lower than oil, their ease of use makes them a favourite for those looking to add CBD to their lives without having to dose the oil themselves. Our capsules can contain up to 50 mg of CBD each, meaning even those on high-dose routines can take advantage of them.
If you value convenience and regularity, CBD capsules offer a more straightforward solution. CBD capsules and CBD oil are actually very similar – in fact the capsules are simply filled with our CBD oil! The difference lies in how the body absorbs the CBD. In oil form, the CBD is absorbed under the tongue by mucus membranes, leading to fast-acting CBD effects. Capsules are ingested, so CBD can only be absorbed once properly digested. This leads to a very small amount of CBD being lost in the process (referred to as lower bioavailability). Capsules are also digested more slowly, leading to slightly mellower, longer-lasting effects. If you want fast-acting, versatile CBD, try our pure CBD isolate oil. If you want easy, reliable, long-lasting CBD, then our CBD capsules are right for you.
CBD is completely safe. Our CBD isolate which is contained within the capsules have a guaranteed purity of at least 99.9%. We extract our CBD from hemp we grow ourselves, so we know exactly what it’s made of! We regularly have our oils tested by third-party labs to make sure there’s quality in every bottle. You can check out our lab report in teh product description.
That depends on your specific needs. Those wanting to explore the effects of CBD on treating mild conditions or promoting general wellbeing should take 1 capsule a day. Others looking to address more serious conditions such as chronic pain, anxiety, or insomnia might find 2 capsules more appropriate. Everyone is different, and CBD is a highly personalised experience, so we encourage anyone trying CBD for the first time to keep a written record of their doses and perceived outcomes. Trying out different doses is the best way of finding out what works for you. Read more about how to determine how much CBD you can take here

CBD Tablets: Frequently Asked Questions

Are CBD tablets as effective as oil?
Tablets offer a simpler, more traditional method for taking a supplement. Tablets and oils are different in many ways. The most notable is that with an oil, the CBD is “carried” by the oil, which makes it easier for your body to absorb. That way more of the CBD enters the bloodstream which ultimately maximises its effectiveness. This effect is further enhanced by the sublingual (under the tongue) taking of CBD oils, which allows entry into the bloodstream faster than by ingestion alone. However, our capsules also contain additional ingredients such as HTP-5 for sleep or Vitamin C to support the immune system. For other convenient ways of taking CBD why not check out our CBD Capsule
No, unless you take a really high dose. CBD users generally feel more relaxed, and CBD helps many with insomnia and sleep disorders. Read more about CBD and sleep here. CBD tablets can help your body to achieve its natural balance, making you feel calmer but not always sleepy. Very high doses of CBD can leave users feeling drowsy. The FSA recommends a daily maximum dose of 70mg. Sleep Aid CBD Tablets are specially designed with added 5-HTP and Lavender to promote better sleep and reduce insomnia.
CBD is legal in the UK. UK regulations state that CBD oil is legal so long as it contains no THC. Our CBD is regularly checked by third party labs to make sure our products are safe and legal. These reports are always available to view on our website, and we’re proud to be one of the first companies to have their products listed on the FSA’s new approved CBD products list. When you buy CBD from HempWell, you can rest assured that you’re receiving high quality, ethical CBD products.

CBD Gummies: Frequently Asked Questions

Do CBD gummies work?
CBD gummies are a fun and effective way to get your daily CBD dosage. Because the gummies contain sugar it may be recommended to take them in the morning to aid with general wellness, help fight mild pain or improve focus. They are likely less effective than one of our CBD Oils at treating insomnia because of the sugar content.
Like all foodstuffs, CBD gummies don’t last forever. However due to their nature as a sweet they have a longer best before date than most perishables. Moreover, they are able to protect the CBD over this period. Our CBD gummies are good for around 12 months from manufacture, and you can always check the BBE date on the bottom of the jar
It depends on the person and their circumstances. CBD oil taken sublingually (under the tongue) will enter the bloodstream quicker and more efficiently than gummies, which are absorbed through digestion alone.

Both our CBD gummies and oil make dosage control easy
