Why choose Feelgood Essentials CBD oil?
FeelGood Essentials CBD oil is 100% organic, our plants are grown in certified organic soil and fed with organic nutrients. We do not use any pesticides or herbicides.
Our oil is tested in an academic and internationally accredited specialist research laboratory. Each batch is individually tested and certificated.
Made in Small Batches
Our CBD oils are hand made in small batches with meticulous attention to detail and quality.
Our CBD is extracted without solvents, CO2 or heat extraction, which preserves beneficial constituents.
Kept in a Violet Glass Bottle
Our CBD oil is contained in very special violet glass dropper bottles that completely block 100% of light including UV. We chose these bottles to prevent our oil from oxidising and to keep the cbd and terpenes as fresh as the day our oil was made.
What is CBD?
CBD is short for cannabidiol, one of the two principle active components of the hemp plant family
Is CBD Oil legal in the UK?
Yes, provided that the CBD Oil contains less than 0.1% THC (which ours does)
Will CBD make me feel high?
No, CBD is not psychoactive. You cannot get high by consuming our CBD Oil
What is the percentage of the Feelgood CBD oil?
It is 2.5%.
It is possible to get high concentrations of CBD (and simultaneously low THC) by using fairly aggressive, high heat/high pressure methods of extraction, BUT this is always at the expense of the overall quality of the resulting oil. High temperature fractional distillation can provide a 99% pure CBD oil (in other words just CBD). Supercritical CO2 extraction requires high pressure AND high temperatures. Both of these processes DESTROY the many terpene components of Cannabis Sativa which all have much lower boiling points, so these terpenes vaporise off before the CBD extraction is complete. The terpenes are a very valuable part of CBD oil, each having powerful remedial properties in themselves. Some CBD oil manufacturers try to get around this problem by adding terpenes into the cbd oil after the extraction. In fact there is a growing market for cannabis terpenes for just this purpose!
Cannabis is a very complex plan - huge amounts of research worldwide is currently taking place. New terpenes and cannabinoids are frequently being discovered. It is very difficult to determine the quality of an isolated product. We have expressly chosen to use a holistic methodology which preserves as much of the beneficial constituents as possible.
What are Terpenes and why are they so important? See answers below.
How do I take Feelgood CBD Oil?
A little goes a long way. We recommend you take six drops once or twice daily. Six drops will provide 100 mg of pure CBD. It is important to put the drops under your tongue and wait a minute before swallowing. This is called ‘sublingual’ administration and is the most effective and beneficial way for your body to absorb CBD into your system.
Is CBD Oil the perfect medicine?
UK law does not permit CBD oil to be described as a medicinal supplement despite the growing empirical evidence suggesting that it functions like one. Thus CBD oil can only be offered for sale as a dietary supplement.
Can I cook with Feelgood CBD Oil?
Yes, if you prefer, you can add it to your favourite recipes. You should be aware that some of the terpenes will be lost in the cooking process.
What are Terpenes and why are they so important?
The cannabis plant naturally produces around 200 different kinds of organic hydrocarbon compounds known as ‘terpenes’ We believe that a holistic ‘whole plant’ oil is much more beneficial than a single chemically extracted isolate of cbd. Therefore we are very careful to preserve the terpenes in their entirety when making Feelgood CBD Oil.
Some of the principal terpenes and their properties include:
Myrcene: a potent analgesic, anti-inflammatory, antibiotic and antimutagenic
Pinene: used in medicine as an anti-inflammatory, expectorant, bronchodilator and local antiseptic
Limonene: suppresses the growth of many species of fungi and bacteria. May be beneficial in protecting against cancers and is currently undergoing trials in the treatment of breast cancer
Caryophyllene: An anti-inflammatory and a functional CBD agonist. It is the only terpinoid known to directly activate a cannabinoid receptor in the body.
Linalool: an immune system booster and anti-inflammatory on a cellular level.
The well-researched ‘entourage effect’ indicates that the benefits of CBD become much more effective in conjunction with the many other compounds naturally occurring within the whole plant
This is why we are so very careful to ensure that the fragile terpenes are extracted completely intact within our Feelgood CBD Oils. We will never use an extraction process which destroys the terpenes.
What is decarboxylation and is it important?
There is a lot of misunderstanding concerning this subject.
Hemp and Cannabis plants naturally produce CBD-A and THC-A. These are known as ‘acid precursors’. CBD and THC have entirely different receptor mechanisms within our bodies. For instance, THC (which we are not interested in) can only produce its’ psychoactive effect if it is decarboxylated and converted from THC-A to THC by a process of heating the plant material at high temperature.
CBD however, does not have a psychoactive effect. Heating CBD to decarboxylate does not increase its bio-availability in the body. Heating CBD simply destroys the valuable terpenes.
Having said all this CBD-A naturally converts to CBD over a period of time. This is why we ‘cure’ our plant material at room temperature for at least a month before extracting the CBD. In this way, you get the best of all worlds – naturally decarboxylated CBD together with all the essential terpenes.
How do I store Feelgood CBD Oils and do I need to keep them in a fridge?
We recommend storing your Feelgood CBD Oil in a cool place out of direct sunlight but not in a fridge. If you do store your CBD oil in a fridge, the oil will naturally thicken but will completely revert back to liquid form by simply leaving the bottle out at room temperature for a while.
'I was suffering from long standing migraines due to hormonal imbalance. Taking CBD oil for one month greatly regulated this problem and the migraines disappeared. Therefore, I highly recommend CBD oil to all women who go through hormonal ups and downs.'
'I have been taking CBD oil now for the past 4 months and I can honestly say that I sleep between 7 to 8 hours a night. I used to sleep about 3 hours a night ever since In started my menopause 15 years ago, but my sleep has improved, and I also suffer from osteoarthritis in my hands and nused to experience digging pains, but since taking the CBD oil, I have not experienced any pains. It's just amazing and a life changer.'
