What is CBD?
CBD is short for cannabinoid. There are over 118+ different cannabinoids in the cannabis plant. Cannabis plants are either marijuana or hemp. Marijuana (or weed) plants are producers of large amounts of psychoactive THC. This is what gives the user the feeling of being stoned or high.
Hemp plants are different in that they are practically devoid of THC, (Legally 0.2 %) and this trace amount cannot possibly get you high. They do however produce a large amounts of CBD. CBD has been claimed responsible for its healing properties. Some users have reported all sorts of health benefits ranging from arthritis to acne to insomnia.
Full Spectrum Oil
Full Spectrum means the whole plant is processed which means as well as the CBD you get all 118 +cannabinoids, terpenes, flavonoids and fatty acids found in hemp. This means as well as a large content of CBD our oil also contains CBDa CBG, CBC, THC, THCa, CBN, CBD, CBL and CBT and many more which all working together contributes to the Entourage Effect.
The Entourage Effect is a term coined from a very conclusive published study on the effects of cannabinoids on the human body. It proved that the effects were greater on the user if all cannabinoids were working together rather than just isolated or as selected cannabinoids on their own. All parts of the whole plant are used in our oil as we believe they all have a part to play.
Comfort CBD Facts
Supercritical Co2 extracted
Vegetarian and Vegan friendly
We partnered with a family business like ours. A business with the same ethos as ourselves. A business where profit isn’t the most important value. Where education and integrity are the foundations. Our manufacturing process is handled by a company that grows the plants on their own 97 acre farm, then processes it into oil right here in the UK to Comfort CBD oil specifications.
Together we are able to control the entire manufacturing process from start to finish, providing our distributors and customers with a consistent product supply and quality. Our products are whole-plant extracts, non-synthetic and fully suitable for vegetarians and vegans.
Our 4 Step Process
1 – GROWING – Our partner has their very own 97-acre plantation, using specifically brewed cannabis sativa plants containing high levels of CBD, strict organic farming practices and naturally developed strains of cannabis, they control the plants from cultivation to harvesting.
2 – EXTRACTING THE OIL – They remove any unwanted compounds, while creating the maximum potency level of phytocannabinoids with our Co2 supercritical extraction process that has been developed so it isolates and removes any unwanted compounds, while creating the maximum potency level of phytocannabinoids. State-of-the art technology is employed to ensure a full spectrum oil that includes both high levels of cannabidiols and terpenes. This guarantees a consistently pure and premium product for our customers.
3 – IN-HOUSE TESTING – To ensure the products quality, potency and purity, accurate testing is essential. They measure cannabidiol levels using state-of-the art equipment in addition to testing the CBD levels of every batch of CBD oil. They also check and test for microbiological contamination, heavy metals and pesticides.
4 – INDEPENDENT LAB TESTING – All our products get batched tested by an independent 3rd party test laboratory – Phytovista Laboratories in the UK, one of the most experienced and recognised cannabis testing laboratories in the world.
The CBD full spectrum oil we use is sourced and grown in the EU under strict regulations and standards practices. We only use the very best quality and our CBD is extracted again using supercritical CO2. It is organic, vegan, free from pesticides and GMOs and its manufactured right here in the UK. All 3rd party lab tested.
The FSA and the MHRA have developed guidelines for those selling CBD and we at Comfort don’t make any claims ourselves to the health benefits of CBD and you should consult your GP before treating any illness with it.
