Before we founded Kith & Kin, we used CBD for our own aches and pains. We had lots of questions. Here’s what we’ve learned since then.
What is CBD made of?
CBD is a plant molecule known as a phytocannabiniod. In fact, it is the most abundant of more than 120 different cannabinoids found in the hemp plant. Our CBD is extracted using a process called supercritical CO2 extraction. This gentle extraction method ensures the widest spectrum of beneficial cannabinoids and terpenes are preserved. The organic CBD oil is then mixed with organic coconut oil.
Is this stuff legal?
Yes, it is. Most of the cannabinoids found in the hemp plant are completely legal. There are a few, however, such as THC and CBN that are not. During the production process these are removed using flash chromatography. Our products are fully legal in the UK and we ensure that they contain no detectable traces of any of the non-legal compounds found in hemp.
Does it actually work?
Our journey to becoming Kith & Kin started with us using CBD products ourselves, with remarkable results. This inspired us to go out and find the best organic CBD oil we could. We use Kith & Kin CBD oil ourselves, as do our family and friends — and we hope that you see the same benefits we have.
How much can I take?
The golden rule when taking CBD is to ‘start low and go slow’. The dosage appropriate to you will vary based on several conditions ranging from your body weight and metabolism, to the type of product you are using. We recommend that you start by using a dose of 10mg per day and then increase that every few days until you find what works for you. CBD is generally well tolerated, but you should bear in mind that the UK Food Standards Agency recommends you don’t exceed 70mg per day.
What makes Kith & Kin products so good?
We trust our products because we first sourced them for ourselves. Our CBD oil is fully traceable from field, to production, to you. With so many CBD products of unknown provenance, it’s important to know where it comes from and that it’s been made with care using proven processes. Kith & Kin CBD oil is sustainably produced to the highest organic standards and laboratory practices by people who believe that safety and quality count.
