What is CBD Oil?
The main active ingredient in CBD oil is cannabidiol (CBD), a non-intoxicating compound with numerous therapeutic properties.
To make pure CBD oil, CBD is extracted from the hemp plant, purified and then distilled, before being infused with a carrier oil (such as organic MCT oil).
When the carrier oil has absorbed the CBD, it is able to release it into the body for improved absorption - giving the user full access to all the potential benefits of CBD.
What is CBD Oil Good For?
Numerous studies have shown that CBD oil has a variety of medicinal uses and can be effective in managing a range of health conditions. Many people take CBD oil for pain, anxiety, insomnia and inflammation. But not all kinds of CBD oil are created equal. There are different types and strengths to choose from, so it's important for every one to find the right product and dosage for their needs.
How is our CBD oil grown and extracted?
CBD is extracted from the female hemp plant. CBD hemp farms typically contain 1,000 to 1,600 plants per hectare. Each one is planted and cared for individually by the farmers. Hemp is an annual plant, which means that it usually grows from seed to plant within four months. Once the buds are fully mature, the plant is harvested in mid or late autumn, around the month of October.
CBD can be extracted from hemp in a number of ways. At Naturecan, we use CO2 extraction, where carbon dioxide is passed through the hemp plant under pressure to extract CBD and other vital phytochemicals. The result is a crude oil that is clean, high quality and safe to consume. While most other CBD brands stop their extraction process at this stage, we go a step further and use chromatography to remove any impurities from the final product.
What do I have to consider when buying CBD drops?
To find the best CBD oil for your individual needs, it is important to consider the following factors:
1. Your reasons for taking CBD oil (this will determine the form in which you take CBD oil, as well as the strength and dosage).
2. The quality of the ingredients and where they have been sourced.
3. The THC content of the product (if it is below 0.2%, it is safe for consumption).
4. Third party testing (certification by an independent laboratory guarantees the safety and quality of the product).
5. The transparency of the seller (if the seller provides a Certificate of Analysis for the product, it is worth reading this to ensure that it contains only high quality ingredients and is safe to consume).
What makes Naturecan's CBD oil special?
6 different strengths
Our CBD oil is available in six strengths ranging from 5% to 40%, so there is something for everyone.
Broad-spectrum CBD contains multiple cannabinoids that work together to enhance the effectiveness of the oil - a phenomenon known as the 'entourage effect'.
Doesn't taste like hemp
Our organic MCT carrier oil (extracted from coconut) has a mild taste and improves the bioavailability of CBD (the amount of CBD that enters the bloodstream).
Our CBD oil drops give you maximum control over your CBD intake, and make it easy to tailor your daily dosage to you and your needs.
We can guarantee the purity of our CBD oil based on our rigorous testing protocols. All our products go through a strict testing process of at least six stages to ensure their quality and safety. This process includes testing for CBD potency, THC, pesticides, heavy metals, microbial contamination, and solvent residues. After this process, our products are tested again by independent laboratories such as Labdoor and TÜV SÜD.
How long does it take for CBD oil to work?
CBD oil works faster than most other CBD products, because the CBD is absorbed through the oral mucosa and enters directly into the bloodstream. It can take 15-30 minutes for CBD to work, and the effects can last between 4-6 hours. On the other hand, CBD edibles and CBD topicals may take up to one or two hours to produce the desired effects.
How much CBD should I take?
CBD dosage depends on many different factors, including weight, height, and reasons for taking CBD. We recommend starting with a low dose (e.g. 20 mg) to see how your body reacts, before gradually increasing your dosage until the desired effects are achieved.
As a precaution, the FSA recommends that healthy adults do not take more than 70mg of CBD a day, unless advised by a doctor. This includes any additional products, so please ensure that you do not exceed this amount. Whilst following this guidance, you can manage your daily dosage based on what works best for you, and combine various CBD products if desired.

How to take CBD oil?
Find the right dosage
The CBD oil dosage depends on many different factors, including weight, height, and reasons for consumption.
Use our CBD Dosage Calculator to find your optimal dosage.
Put drops under the tongue
Lift your tongue to the roof of your mouth and place your required number of drops beneath it.
Leave under the tongue for 1 minute
Leave the oil under your tongue for one minute before swallowing. This allows the CBD to be fully absorbed by the oral mucosa.
It can take 15-30 minutes for CBD oil to take effect.
What do the mg and % numbers for CBD oil mean?
The number in milligrams (mg) refers to the total amount of cannabinoids contained within the product.
This is not necessarily equal to the strength of the CBD oil, as the volume of the bottle which contains it (measured in millilitres, or ml for short) determines the amount of CBD that is present within each drop.
For example, in a 10ml bottle of CBD oil which has 3000 mg on the label, each drop will contain three times as much CBD as a 30ml bottle of CBD oil which also has 3000 mg on the label, making it three times stronger.
The percentage (%) refers to the concentration of CBD present within the oil. This is a more accurate measure of the drop-for-drop strength of any CBD oil.
CBD Oil Reviews
More than 1,600 people have already gained experience with our CBD oils and have rated them with an average of over 4.8 / 5 stars.
It is amazing, kicks in very quickly, and it does what it is supposed to. I suffer from anxiety, and I injured myself, and before CBD my life was quite...hard, and this made everything better, I feel relaxed, I can sleep like a baby and I stopped feeling pain after taking it. It has a mild taste of tea, which is very pleasant.
My wife and I use it and it has definitely improved our sleeping pattern, it is also easing my wife’s menopause symptoms. Give it a go you will not be disappointed.
Effects have been quite remarkable and will continue usage!
How much does CBD oil cost?
This table shows the price of CBD oil per mg for various strengths and volumes.
As you'd expect, higher strength oils are more expensive than lower strength oils, because they contain more CBD per drop.
How long will a bottle of CBD oil last?
To find out how long a bottle of CBD oil will last, take the total number of milligrams of CBD contained in the bottle and divide it by your daily dose.
For example, if your daily dosage is 21 mg, and you take 5 drops of 10% CBD oil (1000 mg) daily, divide 1000 by 21 and you get 48 - so the bottle would last 48 days.
OUR CBD OILS AT A GLANCE
Our CBD oils come in six strengths (from 5 to 40%) and two volumes (10 and 30ml). The table below shows the CBD concentration per drop for our various oil strengths.
Our CBD oil is mixed with 100% pure organic MCT carrier oil and broad-spectrum terpenes to maximize its bioavailability and encourage the 'entourage effect'. In addition, it undergoes expert purification and testing processes to guarantee its quality and safety, and to ensure that it contains non-detectable levels of THC.
Our CBD oil is made in Oregon, USA to meet the highest quality standards. From its inception, Naturecan has ensured that all products are rigorously tested by independent laboratories in order to guarantee customer safety, ingredient quality and product purity.
While CBG may be less well known than CBD, it potentially has even greater benefits. Known as the "mother" cannabinoid, CBG (cannabigerol) is the original cannabinoid in the cannabis plant, from which over 100 other cannabinoids are derived, including CBD.
While it's a recent discovery, studies have shown that it has anti-inflammatory properties and interacts with the endocannabinoid system in a similar way to CBD, which means that it can also regulate essential functions such as mood, appetite, sleep and pain.
Our 10% and 20% CBG oils are mixed with organic MCT carrier oil and contain non-detectable levels of THC. Furthermore, all our products are tested and certified by independent laboratories, so you can be assured of their quality and safety.

How should I store CBD oil?
When it comes to storing CBD products, it is important to protect them from any excess light, air and heat. Doing so will preserve their quality and potency for as long as possible.
Light: Keep your CBD oil in a dark room or cupboard, away from direct or excessive light.
Air: Make sure your CBD oil is completely sealed when not in use to keep out excess oxygen and other contaminants.
Heat: Store your CBD oil at or below room temperature (around 20 ° C) away from any potential sources of heat, such as radiators, stoves, and other appliances. While it is possible to store CBD oil in the refrigerator, low temperatures can cause the oil to separate, so the bottle should be shaken well before use. For long-term storage, CBD oil can be placed in the freezer.
Are marijuana, hemp, and cannabidiol (CBD) the same thing?
No, marijuana, hemp, and cannabidiol (CBD) are not the same.
CBD (cannabidiol) is a cannabinoid found in the marijuana and hemp plants. While both marijuana and hemp are derived from the Cannabis sativa species of cannabis, their chemical properties differ significantly.
Hemp is the non-intoxicating form of cannabis, cultivated primarily for industrial and agricultural purposes. It is rich in CBD and contains only trace amounts of THC (<0.2%), which makes it safe and legal to consume.
Marijuana, on the other hand, is an intoxicating form of cannabis that contains high levels of THC. It is grown mainly for recreational purposes and is illegal in many countries, including the UK.
