As we are all aware, the world has been changing, and arguably, faster than ever before. Technological and medical advancements are being made daily; not only this but our culture is also becoming more progressive and open-minded.


Evidence of this can be seen in the drastic increase in the number of people that are using cannabidiol (CBD) oil as part of their wellness routine in the UK and around the world. A survey by YouGov in 2019 estimated that as much as 11% of the UK population, or approximately six million adults, have tried CBD.


As a professional producer of premium cannabis oil products, here at Beliebis UK, we believe that before purchasing, there is some important information that all prospective CBD users should know. If you would like to learn more, please take a look at our summary of the key points below.

1) CBD Oil doesn’t get you high

This is a common misconception that needs to immediately be addressed. Whilst CBD is a type of cannabinoid that is found naturally within industrial hemp and cannabis plants alike, it cannot be stressed enough that it does not contain the properties which can cause euphoria in users.


Delta 9-Tetrahydrocannabinol, better known as THC, is the cannabinoid that, when smoking marijuana, causes the user to experience the high commonly associated with cannabis. CBD oil, on the other hand, can potentially cause the feeling of calmness and relaxation to those who use it.

2) CBD Oil is completely legal

Contrary to what you may have previously heard elsewhere, the use of CBD oil is completely legal in the UK. However, as is the case with all CBD products, there are many conditions regarding this status. For example, the THC content of a CBD product in the UK must not exceed 1mg per finished product; this is to ensure that users will not experience any psychoactive effects.

As well as this and several other factors, the hemp that the oil has been extracted from must have been grown from a strict list of pre-approved industrial hemp seeds.

All of our products are tested by an independent, third-party laboratory here in the United Kingdom to ensure our products met these standards and are 100% legal. The certificates for each product can be viewed on their respective page in our CBD Shop.


3) The list of potential benefits of CBD Oil is extensive

One of the primary reasons behind the significant rise in the popularity of CBD oil is that the list of potential advantages of using it is so vast. A report on cannabidiol by the World Health Organization (WHO) in 2017, citing a study by Pisanti et al (2017), lists seventeen diseases that CBD may have therapeutic benefits for. Therefore, it will be of no surprise to most that there is so much excitement in the world of medical science surrounding CBD and its great potential.


Another recent study featured in Forbes shows that 42% of consumers purchasing high-quality CBD oil products are predominantly, looking for relief from the pain they are suffering from; this was followed by 21% and 19% of customers hoping to reduce their insomnia and anxiety symptoms, respectively.

4) CBD is non-toxic and non-addictive

 The same study by the WHO into cannabidiol shows that CBD is non-toxic, non-addictive and is generally well-tolerated, with a good safety profile.

5) CBD is a food supplement


In the UK CBD must be sold as a food supplement. Therefore, producers or sellers of CBD products on the market must meet all the necessary legal requirements for that classification.


This includes, but are not limited to, being registered as a Food Business Operator, adhering to strict labelling rules and not making any unproven medical claims about their products.


Many people that purchase from us, tend to use our products in the same way in which they would take daily food supplements, such as multivitamins, for example – with an aim to improve their overall wellness.
