HBHM CBD FAQs
HBHM use only the best quality Cannabidiol (CBD) Isolate, extracted from organically grown hemp plants in the USA by one of the Global Leaders in Cannabinoids.
We work with growers who meet the industry's highest standards and farming practices, ensuring the best quality of CBD is always achieved.
One of the most common questions we receive from our customers is: what is the difference between CBD Isolate and Distillate?
CBD Distillate is a whole plant extract that contains a wide range of cannabinoids and terpenes – many of which are unknown.
CBD Isolate is extracted from hemp and highly refined to include only CBD and below the legal limit of THC.
We use Isolate in all of our products so that our customers can be confident that they are always getting the purest form of CBD. Our Isolate has at least 98% potency and is compliant with CBD regulations.
All of our CBD oils are manufactured in the UK and lab-tested to ensure that they are always the best quality.
The CBD Isolate crystals are added to ethically sourced medium-chain triglyceride (MCT), which is fractioned from coconut and flavoured with 100% natural sugar and sweetener-free fruit extract.
All our 30ml oils contain 1200mg CBD Isolate, which equates to 40mg per 1ml pipette, and our oils which contain 3000mg CBD Isolate equates to 50mg per 0.5ml pipette. Our pipettes are clearly marked to ensure our customers know exactly how much CBD they are consuming.
HBHM CBD oils have various benefits, including improving your sleep quality. We recommend taking 1 full pipette of our CBD isolate oil 20 minutes before bed if you’re taking CBD for this reason. For further information, read our blogs: ‘Can CBD help with your sleep’ or ‘5 ways to improve your sleep quality’.
Yes. CBD is a legal substance used by athletes and has anti-inflammatory properties, which can help with any aches and pains you may have from sports such as running, cycling, golf and much more. HBHM recommend using a few drops under your tongue or as part of your post-training meal. For further information, read our blog: ‘CBD for athletes’.
There have been many reports of CBD oil helping users to improve their focus. The endocannabinoid system in the brain regulates and controls many of our most critical bodily functions such as learning and memory, emotional processing, and sleep.
Yes. DOMS (delayed onset muscle soreness) is the muscle pain and stiffness that most of us (particularly those of us who have not exercised in a long time!) experience after exercising. Most typically, the day after.
Since CBD oil is essentially an anti-inflammatory, there is a lot of anecdotal and scientific evidence to support its effectiveness in promoting recovery and reducing muscle soreness. In one poll of 2,600 people who regularly experienced joint pain and stiffness carried out by the Arthritis Association, 30% of people said that their stiffness was improved with the use of CBD, with 71% also reporting that CBD improved their previously disrupted sleep. CBD can be used to treat and lessen stiffness caused directly by inflammation. For further information, read our blog: ‘Getting the most from CBD’.
