Cannabidiol (CBD) is an organic compound derived from the cannabis plant, a term that encompasses both hemp and marijuana. It belongs to a class of compounds known as ‘cannabinoids,’ which scientists believe to have a wide range of beneficial effects on the body and mind. CBD is generally extracted from the hemp plant in the form of oil, which can be consumed on its own or added to a wide variety of products like capsules, chews/gummies, balms and other cosmetic products.
A short answer to this is YES, with one important specification. According to UK government regulations, CBD products are legal as long as they contain less than 0.2 percent THC. This is another cannabinoid found in the cannabis plant. Hemp plants, by definition, contain extremely low amounts of THC (again, less than 0.2 percent).
All of our products are formulated using CBD derived from hemp. They also undergo special testing in an independent laboratory to ensure their THC content is well under 0.2 percent.
An even shorter answer, NO, it won’t. The reason people get high when they use cannabis is because of the high levels of THC, which is a completely different chemical. CBD and THC work with different sets of cells in your body, so it’s impossible for CBD to have the same effects.
Whilst some BaldurCBD products contain small traces of THC, this is not nearly enough to induce any intoxicating effects.
According to a recent report from the World Health Organisation (WHO) the answer is no, you can not get addicted to CBD. (See our blog on WHO’s findings) CBD shows no potential for dependence or abuse. No scientific studies have found that CBD has any sort of addictive properties.
As detailed in the WHO report, CBD is a not a toxic substance. In other words, it’s not capable of creating the kind of reaction that would lead to an overdose, even when consumed in large quantities.
Simple answer and a golden rule, it is always a good idea to talk with your doctor or medical professional before taking CBD supplements.

Cannabis drug tests are designed to test for the presence of THC (or, more specifically, its metabolites). The thresholds for a ‘positive’ test vary somewhat, but in any case even a full spectrum CBD product contains far too little THC to even approach that level.
With that being said, some low-quality tests have been known to produce false positives – even when the person being tested has only used CBD isolate. Testing agencies say they’re working to replace these outdated tests with more accurate ones, but we believe it’s important to be transparent about the possibility of a false positive in the meantime. If you’re unsure, take a look at globaldro.com.
The duration of CBD’s effects also depends on the type of product you’re using, and how your body responds to CBD. This can range from a few hours for tinctures, to nearly a full work day for capsules.
Interestingly, taking CBD with foods containing healthy fats, such as eggs, avocado, oily fish and nuts, has been shown to heighten and extend the effects of your supplement. This is because the fat content helps dissolve the CBD molecules and make them easier for your body to absorb.
This will depend on the type of product you’re using. CBD Oil, tend to work quite quickly, some people have said to start feeling effects in 10 minutes or less).
CBD products that pass through your digestive tract, such as capsules tend to take a bit longer to take effect, as they have to be processed before your body can use them.
The UK Food Standards Agency (FSA) suggests that 70 mg is the maximum amount people should consume in a single day and that’s the guidance we will stick to and recommend.
Most CBD experts recommend following the mantra, ‘start low and go slow.’ This means starting with the minimum initial dose, we start at 250mg in our 10ml oil bottles, this means per 1ml there is 25mg, nice and low – you can find all doses on our BaldurCBD product labels – and observing how your body feels over a period of time. You can always adjust your dosage.
There is no one size fits all answer. Oil under the tongue, a capsule taken every morning or a couple of chews taken throughout the day. If you’re looking to soothe sore muscles or joints, a CBD Heat Balm or Cool Balm can provide localised relief. If you’re seeking long-lasting effects for your whole body throughout the day, a few drops of CBD oil or a CBD capsule might be the option for you.

This will depend on your personal needs and preferences. There are three main types of CBD:
Many scientists believe full spectrum CBD is the most effective, as the tiny amounts of THC boost the effects of other compounds in a synergistic phenomenon known as ‘the entourage effect.’ However, broad spectrum CBD offers many of the same compounds without the THC, which some people prefer. And for those who are only interested in the effects of CBD – and nothing else – isolates can be an appealing option.
There are a lot of possible answers to this question, but in general, many people take CBD to give them a little extra boost with their active lifestyles.
Some use CBD to help them rest after training or after a day at work. Some use it for recovery from training sessions. And there are also many people who use CBD to relax them in daily challenges.
