THC, on the other hand, will cause you to feel high and is not legal in the UK. THC is not legal to purchase or possess, and you risk being prosecuted if you’re found to possess any products that contain THC in the UK and many other countries.
Below, we’ve explained what CBD oil is in more detail, as well as how it’s commonly used as a treatment for a variety of ailments. We’ve also looked at the most popular forms of CBD oil that are available today, from oral CBD tinctures to vape oil, capsules and more.
You have probably heard of CBD or medical marijuana from the increased amount of media coverage that it has seen over recent months.
CBD vs. THC: What’s the Difference?
As the world is turned on to the damage that smoking causes, we are seeing more and more people vaping. E-cigarettes are becoming increasingly popular and now vaping is an easy way to get the benefits of cannabidiol as well.
Instead, CBD products only contain cannabidiol (CBD) and, in some cases, other flavonoids and terpenes. These products don’t cause you to feel high, but can instead cause a range of effects and potential benefits for your health and wellbeing.
Due to the fact that the vapour goes straight into your lungs and doesn’t need to pass through your digestive system, vaping is the quickest way to get CBD into your bloodstream and to your endocannabinoid system, giving you more control and getting the quickest results.
In short, CBD is a cannabinoid that can treat pain, anxiety and a range of other conditions. It is not an illegal substance that causes you to feel high. It’s legal to purchase and to use in the UK and other countries within the European Union.
The cannabis plant and CBD (cannabidiol) may be new to many in the UK, but it’s not to us here at Blessed CBD. The CBD market has exploded in the United States, and the UK market is doing its best to catch up. As CBD gains steam here, we aim to be at the forefront, pushing it steadily along so more UK residents can experience CBD that other parts of the world are taking advantage of.
Our family-run operation is not fazed by competition, the desire for high profits or the need to be known around the world. What we don’t like is low-quality CBD oil being passed off as beneficial and effective.
Blessed CBD is committed to bringing our UK customers the #1 CBD products on the market. Our full-spectrum CBD tinctures, CBD gummies, CBD capsules and CBD creams come packed with an array of beneficial cannabinoids, terpenes and flavonoids. Plant-powered goodness designed for general well-being. But don’t just take our word for it… see what our customers say below.
For a while, we considered sitting on the side-lines, as our family-run operation doesn’t have the massive budgets corporations have at their disposal, but soon realised we are passionate enough to make an impact in the lives of people.
These tinctures are easy to use and can be taken throughout the day. CBD tinctures can utilise multiple bases such as coconut and MCT carrier oils. CBD oils are the most common way to take cannabidiol. This delivery method is easy to use, and it promotes the bioavailability of CBD while delivering all of the hemp goodness needed to find holistic balance.
These oils are best taken sublingually. This administration method involves placing your selected amount of cannabidiol oil under the tongue for sixty to ninety seconds before swallowing. Sublingual application of CBD increases its bioavailability by providing an opportunity for the cannabidiol to cross the mucous membrane of the mouth before entering the digestive tract. You can also simply swallow this oil, but you may not retain the full potency of the product in this way.
CBD oil is easy to use and hassle-free. Each order will come with a bottle of cannabidiol that includes a ml dropper attached. This dropper can be used to measure your chosen dose easily. The formulas can contain varying amounts of CBD per ml and per bottle. Always check the dosing information in the product description and on the packaging before using new CBD oils.
WHERE DOES CBD OIL COME FROM?
When the hemp plant is adequately aged, the cannabinoids can be extracted using various methods. We utilise a safe and non-toxic extraction process that leverages pressurised CO2 to pass through the hemp material and withdraw valuable compounds. Other extraction processes can use dangerous solvents, such as ethanol, and should be avoided. Our safe CO2 extractions are then placed in various carrier oils and can be infused with other ingredients for flavouring and preservation. At CBD Guru, we choose all-natural plant-derived ingredients at every possible turn to enhance your cannabidiol experience.
All of these oils are 100% legal, 100% THC free, and available for purchase online at incredibly low prices. We deliver these premium products straight to your door, hassle free. If this is your first time trying CBD, start with a mild 5% CBD bottle. You can carefully build up your dose and have more conveniently delivered to your home when you are ready.

As hemp grows, it creates acidic cannabinoid compounds, such as CBGA, CBDA, and THCA. These eventually convert to the common cannabinoids we know and love, such as CBG and CBD. Currently, hemp can not be legally cultivated for cannabinoid extraction in the UK. Instead, we turn to the rolling mountains and fields of Colorado to source our premium hemp.
