Why do people use CBD?

CBD oils and products are used routinely by a varied cross-section of people for a wide variety of reasons. Users find CBD can help them to achieve inner peace and a relaxed attitude that makes navaigating day to day life much more straightforward. 

Is it legal to use CBD products?

If you’re thinking about trying CBD oil products, you will want to ensure that they are safe and legal to use in the UK. CBD is permitted in the UK, and Raw Swiss complies with current UK legislation by providing that its products have no more than 1 mg of THC detected in any final product formulation. 

Is there a minimum age limit to use CBD products?

There is currently no stated legal minimum age limit in the UK though many websites employ a selling policy to those over 18 or 21.

Are your products safe?

Raw Swiss prides itself on a meticulous manufacturing process that enables us to control our premium products’ entire life cycle from seed to virtual shelf. From our land to your lounge, we can vouch for every step of the process with rigorous quality control, independent lab testing and certification managed by a team of the very best scientists and experts in the industry.

The only way to be 100% confident about your products’ safety and quality is to be in charge of them every step of the way, and that is a philosophy and practice we adopt wholeheartedly at Raw Swiss. This commitment, coupled with our compliance with all relevant legislation, gives our customers the confidence to trust our brand and products.  

Should I talk to my Doctor before I use CBD?

There is no obligation to speak to your GP before taking CBD products. Still, if you have a complex medical history or any concerns, you should use the same level of caution as you would with any other treatments, medication or therapeutic remedies.

Thankfully the stigma around CBD has lifted somewhat in recent years, and broader use means that the confusion surrounding it has reduced. Many GP’s are well-read on the subject and open to the therapeutic effects of CBD.  

Will I get high if I use your products?

CBD is non-psychoactive, so you will categorically not get high by using Raw Swiss CBD products. 

THC is the psychoactive chemical in the cannabis plant responsible for creating a high. THC levels are strictly monitored in the UK, and cannabis plants (aka marijuana or hemp) containing high THC levels are illegal. 

Can I drive and operate machinery after taking CBD products?

Because Raw Swiss CBD products are regulated and contain no psychoactive chemicals, they are considered safe for use in everyday situations. There is no evidence to suggest that you should not be fit to drive or operate machinery.

Is it safe to use CBD products?

CBD products are non-intoxicating and are regulated for therapeutic use. As such, they pose no undue risk to health. Raw Swiss products comply with all current legislation and are produced under the strict supervision of the best scientists and experts in the field. You can use Raw Swiss CBD products safe in the knowledge that we have left no stone unturned in the harvesting and production of our premium formulas. 

Why Raw Swiss?

All CBD products are not created equal! Raw Swiss is pretty unique because we can vouch for every part of the process that takes the seed through its complex lifecycle and into the product delivered to your doorstep. 

We control the entire supply chain. We develop the genes, grow the plants, harvest and extract the good stuff before adding it to a vast repertoire of formulations for specific needs and results. Our formulations are swiss-engineered using the best expertise and the finest raw ingredients for the highest quality level.

What is the difference between full-spectrum and broad-spectrum CBD oil?

When a CBD oil product is labelled full-spectrum, that means the plant’s original terpenes and other types of cannabinoids, including cannabinol (CBN), cannabigerol (CBG), and significantly THC, have not been filtered out during the extraction process. 

Broad-spectrum CBD oil derived from hemp is similar to full-spectrum, as the oil contains most of the cannabinoids from its original state. However, the critical difference here is the additional extraction process that filters out all traces of THC. With the THC removed, consumers don’t need to worry about encountering any feelings of being high but can still reap the potential benefits of other minor cannabinoids and terpenes.

What can I take CBD for?

People use CBD in many different formats and ways to help them manage conditions or simply achieve peace and calm in a hectic world. Many users choose CBD oils to help them manage conditions like insomnia, depression, anxiety and pain. CBD is a tool rather than a cure, and under legislation, sellers of such products in the UK are not allowed to make medical claims about CBD products. If you see a brand or company in the UK making medical claims about their products, it would be prudent to steer clear of them. 

At Raw Swiss, we see CBD as a complementary and therapeutic approach to life. Our CBD products are designed for an easy-going lifestyle with minimal stress. However, there is sufficient evidence to suggest that by reducing the stress in your life and the physiological effects it brings, you can live a happier and healthier life.

What should it make me feel like?

Many users report feelings of calm and relaxation after taking CBD. It is not unusual for users to say that they experience a soothing zen effect and a welcome peace of mind. In contrast, others claim that it helps them to focus and concentrate better, allowing them to still their mind and ‘quieten’ their busy brains.

Will CBD make me sleepy?

The simple answer to this question is no. CBD’s close association with marijuana leads to lots of confusion resulting in the misconception that CBD can make you sleepy. CBD works by calming the mind, but it will not make you feel sleepy during the day.

How long does it stay in my system?

There is no straightforward answer to this question as it largely depends on the concentration of CBD consumed, i.e., the initial dose and for how long you continue to use it. On average, most casual users consuming a twice-daily dose could expect all traces of CBD to be out of their system in 4-5 days. 

Will I fail a drugs test if I take CBD?

Routine drug tests do not screen for CBD, but they would pick up THC traces, the psychoactive agent of cannabis. Raw Swiss products comply with UK legislation and contain minute traces of THC (0.2%), so this would not result in a positive drugs test. This is one reason why it is so important to buy your CBD oils and products from a reputable source with full lab certification. 

Is CBD safe for my pet?

Yes. Raw Swiss CBD products for pets undergo the same stringent testing and certification processes as those designed for human consumption. If you are in any doubt about your pets’ condition and the application of CBD products, please discuss with your veterinarian.

Can CBD cause hallucinations?

CBD is not a hallucinogen, and CBD products have not been linked to any kind of hallucinogenic experience, so you can rest assured that this is not a concern.

Can I travel with CBD products?

CBD is legal in the UK, so you are safe to carry it on your person, on public transport and for breaks to other parts of the UK. As for the rest of the world, the legislation varies wildly, and therefore it is vital to check your destination along with any other layover points en route to ensure you are not breaking the law. 

Even though CBD is legal in many places, you are likely to be asked to show evidence of the origin of the product you are carrying. It may even be subject to testing by some border control officials. Always carry your product in its original packaging and answer any questions openly and honestly.

Can I get addicted to CBD?

According to the World Health Organisation, no public health issues have been associated with using CBD, and there is no evidence to suggest that regular use can lead to addiction.
