What CBD product would you recommend? What can I use CBD oil for?
According to UK law we cannot make recommendations for which CBD product is suitable to choose or how it may help specific symptoms/illnesses. However we have outlined a few of the factors which you may like to consider when choosing an Amma Life CBD product.
A general guideline is to consider the strength of the CBD content. The stronger the CBD content in a product, the more effective it is. Our products range from 4% CBD to 30% CBD content. So you could ask yourself:
What am I taking it for?
How effective would I like the CBD to be?
Another area to consider is how do I want to take the CBD, or how important is the finished solution? Here is a summary of each product range to help guide you through the products available.
The CBD paste range contains the strongest CBD content. It is the pure cannabinoid extract with nothing added. It looks like tar and has a strong earthy taste. This is taken by squeezing a small amount out of a syringe (one portion is equivalent to 1-3 grains of rice in size), then taking it orally.
The CBD oil range is a convenient way of taking CBD and is mixed 50/50 paste with olive oil. This product likes to be left upright once open. This is taken by squeezing a few drops under your tongue with a pipette.
Water Soluble CBDX
The water soluble CBDX range is a spray supplement with around 4% CBD. This is a super convenient way to take CBD, and a great way to carry the product around with you (no leaks from the bottle).
What research is showing about CBD in a water soluble solution is that it is more easily absorbed by the body with increased bioavailability. This method can be up to 10 times more effective. So even though the CBD content is moderate it can be a great and effective choice! This is taken by spraying 1-2 sprays directly into your mouth (it can be on top of your tongue).
The FSA and FDA consider hemp and hemp derived products to be food based. CBD Oil produced from hemp is legal in the UK, and European Union (EU). The Medicines Healthcare product Regulatory Agency (MHRA) has recently classed CBD created for medical purposes to be medicine (1st January 2017).
The MHRA has stated the following:
"We have come to the opinion that products containing cannabidiol (CBD) used for medical purposes are a medicine. Medicinal products must have a product licence (marketing authorisation) before they can be legally sold, supplied or advertised in the UK, unless exempt. Licensed medicinal products have to meet safety, quality and efficacy standards to protect public health.".
As a company we sell food supplements, not medical grade hemp or CBD products for medical purposes. We do not add CBD isolates to our products, as the hemp we use has been grown to contain a naturally rich, whole plant extract.
With regards to our oils, we sell a full spectrum hemp extract rich in naturally occurring compounds. We sell food supplements to maintain, support and optimise your well-being and health. This is the MHRA's definition of a food supplement.
Amma Life does not sell CBD for medical purposes and all of our hemp product range are classed as food supplements. We do not make any claims that Amma Life products can have a restorative effect on the human system.
Can I take my CBD product to another country?
We do have customers that do take Amma Life CBD to other countries with them. However this is not something we can offer any advice on, this is often because the guidelines are either unclear or non-existent for this type of product on what Customs from each country permits.
We advise that you do your own research into this matter and come to your own conclusion.
Hemp cannot get a person 'high' or stoned. Hemp contains very low levels of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), less than 0.2%.
It is important for consumers to understand that not all hemp oil contains naturally high levels of cannabidiol (CBD) for food supplement purposes. At Amma Life, we source suppliers who grow licensed hemp with naturally higher levels of CBD. CBD is a compound that is extracted from special strains of hemp that are high in certain compounds. Most hemp oil that you can buy in shops is best used as cold pressed oil that is used for salad dressings and contains essential fatty acid properties. This is different from the health benefits that stems from CBD and supporting the endocannabinoid system. Some unethical merchants sell hemp oil under the guise of CBD Oil. It is also important to understand that different types of hemp are grown for differing purposes. Hemp oil made from industrialised hemp for construction is of a lesser quality than food supplement grade hemp rich in natural CBD.
About Amma Life CBD Oil
As this is a food supplement, we are not able to offer any direct health advice to individuals. There is extensive information available online that describes the properties of CBD to maintain, support and optimise a person's health. We do not give any direct health or medical advice on the use of CBD Oil. We therefore strongly encourage you to do your own research, speak to a medical professional, and come to your own informed decision about this health supplement. Amma Life CBD products are NOT medicinal and not to be used in place of any prescribed products.
Although this is a food supplement. We do not advise that you start taking CBD products whilst pregnant. Insufficient research has been carried out to state if it is or is not safe to take CBD when pregnant and what effects this may have on an unborn child.
It is best to follow the guidelines listed on each bottle and to start on a minimal dosage of 1 to 3 drops per day, slowly increase the amount you take only if it feels appropriate to do so. Place a few drops under your tongue. Allow this to be absorbed directly through your tongue by waiting a few seconds before swallowing.
The amount of mg of CBD in a 4% CBD oil bottle is as follows:
- a 10ml bottle has 400 mg of CBD. There is approximately 200 drops of CBD in a 10ml bottle. Approximately 2mg per drop.
- 1200 mg of CBD in every 30ml Amma Life 4% CBD Oil bottle
- 2000mg in every 50ml bottle (4% CBD oil).
For the 10% CBD oil, 10ml bottle there is 1000mg of CBD per bottle.
For the CBD paste if you look at each product on the Buy page, it will state how many mg of CBD is in each sized container.
Can I cook with Amma Life CBD products?
It is not advised to use Amma Life CBD products during the cooking process as very high and prolonged heat will have an effect on the product's quality. However, you can add it to hot soup once cooked, or a hot or cold drink.
Sometimes, it can be hard to get the very last few drops out of the bottle. Our recommendation is to put the bottle (with the lid firmly closed) into a few centimetres of hot water (add hot water to a small cup and sit the Amma Life CBD Oil bottle into the water) so it covers the level of remaining oil for a few minutes. This will make the CBD Oil easier to draw out through the pipette (attached to each lid).
Amma Life CBD Oil is a natural product that is perishable. Its shelf-life is approximately 12-18 months from purchase. To maintain its shelf-life, it is best to store the bottle in a cool, dark place e.g. inside a cupboard. Once open it is best to consume within 6 months.
Can you offer me advise on which CBD oil to take or how this can help my condition?
Although we do get lots of feedback from customers about how Amma Life CBD can help with a range of conditions. As a company we are unable to advice on how CBD can help with specific conditions, or recommend specific products for individuals due to strict UK guidelines.
Please do your own research and come to your own informed decision. There are several reputable sites such as Project CBD which can be great resource:
