CBD, which is short for cannabidiol, is one of over 80 compounds called ‘cannabinoids’, which can be extracted from the cannabis sativa plant we all know and recognise. The most ‘well known’ extracts are CBD, which does not create a ‘high’, and THC, which does. CBD is the only extract that can legally be sold in the UK, and cannabis is still very much illegal. So rest assured, you can legally buy CBD in the UK, as long as it contains less than the legal limit of THC, which all of our products do.
We started selling CBD oil in late 2015, before it became the big deal that it is today in the supplement industry. Three years later, Prime CBD has become the leading brand for buying CBD in the UK, in the form of oil, CBD balm, CBD spray and beauty products, from our Tamworth store, and our website which serves the rest of the UK.
Mark Fletcher, director of Prime CBD said, “Prime CBD is a project that I have been passionate about from the very beginning: we saw what was happening in the USA where, state by state, CBD was being legalised, and we didn’t think it was fair that people in the UK should be deprived access to high quality cannabis oil. At that time, most of the UK CBD oils being sold were made from industrial hemp waste. We were determined to do better. We began hunting for suppliers around Europe who could produce CBD oil made from hemp flowers and grown with the specific intention of becoming CBD oil. By using this process, we were able to create tailored products for our customers, and now we’re seeing huge success with people able to buy CBD in the UK via our shop and website”.
However, with every boom comes an abundance of rogue traders. If Brits are unsure about where to legally get their hands on some of the plant’s claimed benefits, we are urging people to buy CBD in the UK, from trusted suppliers, and there’ll be no risk of breaking the law with goods that contain above average levels of THC – the illegal element of cannabis. If in doubt with regards to the contents of your CBD supplement, we also encourage the public to ask their suppliers for a breakdown and they should be able to provide you with a list of the ingredients and possible effects. Brands like Prime CBD should also be registered as Cannabis Trade Association members, who are hot on providing well-rounded guidance to businesses who sell to people looking to buy CBD in the UK.
Fletcher concludes, “We are proud of our products, but more than that, we are proud to have played a role in the CBD and cannabis revolution that is taking place worldwide. Change is coming, and we’re excited to be a part of that”.
Thanks to the fast-evolving industry, Brits are now able to buy CBD in the UK in many different forms. With supplements containing CBD now able to be purchased in the UK, and an increased interest from the Great British public, we have also seen success in our skincare and beauty products, alongside our oils, e-juices, capsules, and sprays.
