CBD (cannabidiol) is a safe and natural remedy used by men, women, children and even pets around the world for its potential therapeutic properties. CBD is an all-natural cannabinoid found in all cannabis plants, including hemp. Unlike THC, another well-known cannabinoid that has a psychoactive “high” effect on the body, hemp-derived CBD is 100% non-psychoactive. Once researchers discovered that CBD can be isolated and extracted from hemp without the addition of THC, it has become increasingly popular around the world for its health benefits. Additionally, the legal status of CBD changed in 2017, and is now considered legal if the CBD extract contains 0.2% THC or less. Click here to learn more about CBD.

CanaBD is marketplace for only high-quality, pure hemp-based CBD products that meet strict manufacturing requirements. All of our products:


  • Are derived from 100% organic, legal, and industrial hemp grown in the US, UK and EU
  • Contain CBD extracted with low-temperature, Co2 extraction
  • Are 100% natural and contain no pesticides, herbicides, or additives
  • Are guaranteed to contain 0.2% or less THC and that has successfully passed third-party laboratory testing

The CanaBD marketplace only offers CBD products that are certified as 100% natural. This means they are the product of hemp leaves and flowers, which are known to be safe for therapeutic uses and have minimal side effects. It is highly important CBD products are 100% natural and do not include synthetic CBD oil or any synthetic ingredients. They can be dangerous, as the effects of synthetic CBD have not been extensively researched.

The CanaBD marketplace only offers CBD products that are 100% certified organic. Certified organic means that the CBD products are sourced only from organically grown hemp plants. This is indicative of the product’s quality as in order to be certified organic, the product must meet strict regulation requirements including:

  • All hemp plants are non-GMO
  • The hemp is grown in a healthy environment and in toxin-free soil
  • No non-organic plant additives are included in the growing process

Hemp is a highly sensitive and absorbent plant. It is crucial to ensure it is grown free of contamination.

Pesticides and herbicides are substances used to ward off unwanted pests and weeds during the agricultural process. These are all dangerous substances that can be found in some CBD products. According to the Toxic Action Center, “Pesticides have been linked to a wide range of human health hazards, ranging from short-term impacts such as headaches to chronic impacts like reproductive harm, and endocrine disruption.” For this reason, we ensure that all of our products are free of these dangerous chemicals as well as any other additives.

Co2 extraction is a process that uses pressurized carbon dioxide to pull the desired phytochemicals from a plant. In the world of cannabis, the process pulls all of the essential cannabinoids, terpenes and flavanoids out of the plant material. Although Co2 acts like a solvent, it doesn’t have the same dangers and toxins associated with other solvents. Using Co2 is a way to create a pure, clean, quality oil which involves little to no post-processing.

Third-party testing helps CanaBD maintain partnerships with credible sources of CBD products through transparent, unbiased test results. When a CBD product undergoes third-party testing, a sample of the product is sent off to a private lab unaffiliated with the manufacturer or distributor. There, the product is tested for the presence of various cannabinoids, potency and chemicals. For more information on our lab testing, click here.

At CanaBD, all of our products contain hemp sourced from credible, 100% organic industrial hemp farmers in the UK, EU and the US. We make sure all our farmers follow regulated, organic farming practices that are supervised by corresponding governing bodies.

The ongoing research surrounding hemp-derived CBD has led to the subsequent increase in its popularity and a progressive recognition of the benefits of CBD by governments and organizations around the world if it has 0.3% or less THC (0.2% or less THC in the UK).

In late 2017, the World Health Organization (WHO) announced that CBD is safe to use, is not a dangerous and/or addictive and may be effective in helping to treat various diseases and other conditions. However, this is not yet proven and further research is still needed to understand the effects of CBD on specific medical conditions.

2018 was a very progressive year for CBD. In the U.S., the Agriculture Improvement Act of 2018 (aka the 2018 Farm Bill) removed hemp-derived CBD as a Schedule I substance, making it federally legal to sell and to purchase. Additionally, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved the first CBD-based drug, Epidiolex, for the treatment of two types of rare seizure disorders, Lennox-Gastaut Syndrome and Dravet Syndrome. Additionally, the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) removed CBD from the Sports Prohibited Drug List. 

Sine 2017, legislation legalizing CBD has passed in the UK, Europe, Canada, Australia, New Zealand and other countries around the world.

Just like for humans, CBD is considered 100% safe for your pets. However, make sure to consult with your veterinarian before beginning your pet on any CBD product. 

CBD oil is one of the most popular CBD products on the market. It is extracted from hemp-based cannabis plants in its purest form and diluted with a carrier oil such as hemp seed oil, MCT oil, or coconut oil. In spite of its dilution, it is still very potent and as such, makes it possible to get strong effects from small doses.

One of the reasons CBD oil is more popular than other CBD products is because it can be consumed in multiple ways and each have their own benefits:

  • Sublingually – Considered the fastest digestive method, users place a drop under the tongue and the oral tissues diffuse it into the blood stream. This method can give you prolonged effects of CBD.
  • Topically – When applied to the skin, CBD provides emollient benefits that can soothe, nourish, and protect the skin. CBD oil is a powerful antioxidant that fights free radicals and contains the essential fatty acids, omega-3 and omega-6, which promote collagen production in the skin.

CBD is considered a supplement as it is a plant-based compound and supports, promotes and helps to sustain your well-being and day-to-day health.

CBD oil is not considered a medicine and is not intended or approved to cure or treat any disease. Research has only just begun on the benefits of CBD oil, including if it can help patients suffering from various diseases such as anxiety and depression, heart problems, pain, addiction and many more.

Yes! Besides containing no chemicals or parabens, CBD works wonders as a skin emollient. Its natural properties soothe, nourish and protect the skin. CBD is also a natural antioxidant, which helps fight free radicals, preventing the breakdown of collagen. It also contains the fatty acids, omega-3 and omega-6, which can help induce collagen production, keeping your skin looking its best.

Psoriasis is a skin condition in which skin cells develop and split at an accelerated pace, causing the skin to build up into bumpy red patches that are dry, itchy and red. It can appear anywhere on the body and can be embarrassing and uncomfortable. No cure has been found to treat psoriasis, but there are remedies that help with the symptoms.

CBD is not intended to treat or cure psoriasis, but as a natural emollient may help reduce some of the symptoms such as dryness or itchiness of the skin.

Atopic dermatitis is a chronic skin condition that is characterized by periodical flare ups of the skin, causing it to appear red, dry and itchy.

CBD is not intended to treat or cure atopic dermatitis, but as a natural emollient may help reduce some of the symptoms such as dryness or itchiness of the skin.

Skin inflammatory condition caused when dead skin cells and oil from the skin clog the skin’s hair follicles. The excessive production of oil (sebum) in the sebaceous glands is what causes the skin to be characterized as prone skin. 

While it may seem counterintuitive, it’s important to keep your skin moisturized to control it. This is because if your skin is stripped of all oils, it will produce excess oil to compensate, causing further breakouts.

While CBD is not intended to cure or treat it, CBD is an all-natural skin emollient that can help keep the skin smooth by balancing out its natural moisture levels.

CBD is a great product to use to fight the signs of aging. It contains natural antioxidants that fight free radicals in your skin which help slow the depletion of collagen. Additionally, CBD contains the fatty acids, omega-3 and omega-6, which may help boost collagen production, keeping your skin looking young and fresh.

Collagen is the protein in the skin that makes it firm, plump, and youthful. When “attacked” by free radicals, the collagen begins to breakdown and subsequently, the skin starts to show signs of aging. Antioxidants, however, fight against free radicals and therefore help to slow down the process of collagen loss and the signs of aging.

Yes. One of the best characteristics of CBD is its soothing and moisturizing abilities for sensitive skin. As a naturally-derived compound, it doesn’t contain any chemicals or parabens that can irritate the skin.

CBD is not only a powerful antioxidant that prevents the breakdown of collagen, but it also helps to increase its production. CBD contains the fatty acids omega-3 and omega-6, which are both known to induce collagen production in the skin.

Yes! CBD is a natural skin emollient, meaning it moisturizes the skin and keeps it feeling smooth. CBD is also known to enhance the production of the skin’s natural oils, helping to maintain its natural levels of moisture.

CBD lip balm is one of the highest trending CBD products on the market. Besides leaving your lips smooth and glossy like any other lip balm, CBD is a natural skin emollient and can help soothe dry, cracked lips. When added to lip balm, it aids as a natural lip-protectant.

Besides providing natural moisture for the skin, CBD contains antioxidants which help protect your skin from free radical damage, including that from the sun’s harmful UV rays. However, CBD should not be used alone as sun protection because it does not contain SPF. Combined with suncream/sunscreen, however, it can help boost the power of the SPF in your suncream/sunscreen.

Skin that’s been exposed to the sun can be dry and uncomfortable. As a natural moisturizer and skin soother, CBD can help soothe areas of the body that are suffering after being exposed to the sun.  

Both hemp and marijuana are strains of the cannabis plant. The main difference between the two is that the hemp plant, or industrial hemp, contains 0.3% or less THC, meaning that hemp-based oils have only trace amounts of THC. This means that hemp-based oils are non-psychoactive and will not show up on a drug test. They are considered legal in most countries around the world, unlike marijuana-based oils, which contain higher amounts of THC and are psychoactive.

CBD oil is a quick and easy way to get your daily dose of CBD and is a wonderful supplement to maintain your overall health and help you feel your best. However, it is not intended to treat or help mitigate any kind of pain.

CBD oil helps promote overall health and wellbeing. It may help you to feel calm and relaxed and may help you manage daily wellbeing. However, it is important to know that CBD oil is not intended to treat or cure any medical condition.

The U.S. Federal Drug Administration (FDA) approved the first CBD-based drug, Epidiolex, in 2018 for the treatment of two rare forms of balance, Lennox-Gastaut Syndrome and Dravet Syndrome.

However, research is still ongoing, and this medication is specifically designed to treat these two forms of balance only. It does not mean that all CBD oil will help treat balance or reduce its symptoms. It is important to remember that CBD oil is not intended to treat or cure any disease.

CBD oils and tinctures look the same on the outside, and their uses and applications are somewhat the same. Still, there is a very clear difference between the two, and that’s the base of the product. CBD oils are oil-based, while tinctures are alcohol based. Tinctures often contain additional ingredients, such as herbs, terpenes, flavours and essential oils.

CBD tinctures are the 2nd most popular form of CBD products after CBD oils.

Unlike oils, tinctures are made when CBD is extracted from the hemp or marijuana plant via a solution of water and alcohol and often have herbs or terpenes for flavouring added to enhance the benefits or simply improve the taste. This makes tinctures less concentrated than CBD oils and typically tastier, which is why they are a preferred choice for beginners or pets. However, because of their alcohol-base, they do have a faster absorption rate.

Because alcohol increases the size of blood vessels, tinctures, which have an alcohol base, have an increased abortion rate through the bloodstream than some other forms of CBD, such as oils.  Alcohol also acts as a preservative helps prolong the life shelf of CBD.

Yes. Tinctures are edible and are often added to food and drinks in order to create CBD edibles. You can either add a drop to your drink or food or cook with it. When cooking, however, it is advised to use water soluble CBD because is designed for this purpose as well as allows for better absorption of the CBD.

CBD tinctures are more diluted than CBD oils not only because they contain water and alcohol, but also because of the added herbs and terpenes added. The addition of cannabis terpenes with CBD allows for the “entourage effect,” which is when multiple cannabis compounds work together to maximize each other’s benefits.

Both oils and tinctures contain CBD but may be used for different purposes depending on the desired results. Some users might prefer tinctures that contain other cannabis terpenes for the “entourage effect,” and prefer the flavour over CBD oils. Tinctures are also absorbed more quickly into the blood stream.

CBD oils are more concentrated and may have stronger effects on the user.

It is up to each individual to decide for themselves which CBD product is right for them.

Tinctures have little to no side effects when consumed in normally amounts. Because tinctures contain added ingredients, make sure to check the label or consult your doctor if you have any known allergies, including that of alcohol.

Tinctures often contain additional ingredients, such as herbs, terpenes, flavours and essential oils.

CBD edibles are exactly what they sound like—they are a food product containing various amounts of CBD. You can find pretty much any food substance with CBD nowadays, as they have grown exponentially in popularity. They are also tasty and a discreet way to get your daily dose of CBD. Because the CBD is combined with the base of another food product, it can take between 30 minutes and 2 hours for it to take full effect. However, its effects can last longer than other forms of CBD.

There are no known side effects to taking CBD edibles when taken in moderate amounts. It is important, though, to wait for your CBD edible to kick in and not take too many at once. Like capsules, edibles have the added benefit of being pre-dosed for you, so you always know exactly how much CBD you are taking. You can also break them into pieces if you want to start with smaller doses of CBD and work your way up.


If you have any known allergies, make sure to read the full ingredient list of any CBD edible to make sure there are no ingredients that might cause you a reaction.

Taking a CBD pill or capsule is done in the same manner as any other pill or capsule. Simply place it in your mouth and swallow with a glass of water or with food. If you are already taking vitamins or supplements, you can simply add the CBD capsule into your daily mix.

  • Dosage Control: As with any other pill or capsule, the dose of CBD will be exact.
    Easy for Travel: Capsules are small and easy to carry with you.
    Discreet: Capsules can easily be swallowed anywhere.
    Taste-Free: Capsules are tasteless for those sensitive to or who don’t like the flavors of other forms of CBD.

CBD oil and capsules are both consumed orally, but differ in the manner of consumption. CBD oil is applied sublingually and absorbed into the blood stream by tissues under the tongue. It also has a distinct taste. Capsules, however, are tasteless and swallowed with food or liquid, which means that they take longer to kick in, yet have a prolonged effect.

Terpenes are organic compounds found in various plants, including cannabis. Their primary purpose is to ward off plant predators and lure certain pollinators. However, they have distinct scents that can be extracted for flavor as well as aromatherapy benefits, which can include both physical and mental benefits. When hemp-derived, CBD terpenes are combined with CBD, the “entourage effect” can occur, meaning that the plant compounds work together to enhance each other’s benefits.

There are over 100 terpenes in the cannabis plant. Here are few that are found in high concentrations that you may want to become familiar with:

  • Myrcene. This lemon-scented terpene is responsible for giving the cannabis plant its unique smell.
    • Limonene. Has also a lemon, citrus odour and can also be found in juniper and various citrus fruits.
    • Pinene. Has a woodsy, earthy aroma and is also found in pine, rosemary, dill and parsley.
    • Linalool. Also found in lavender and has a sweet, floral scent.
    • Caryophyllene. Has a spicy, woody, peppery scent and is also found in black pepper and oregano.
    • Humulene. Has a hoppy, woody aroma and is also found in coriander and clove.

Because terpenes can be extracted for their flavor benefits, including them in e-liquid adds a desired flavor to the vaping experience. Additionally, using hemp-extracted terpenes in addition to CBD can cause the “entourage effect,” that is that when various compounds from cannabis are used together, they work simultaneously to maximize each other’s benefits.

Terpenes are also heat sensitive, as different terpenes are released at different temperature levels when included in vape pens. This is why vaporizers have built-in temperature controls. In order to get optimal results when vaping, you can adjust the temperature accordingly to the desired release point. Not only do you enjoy the benefits of CBD, but they are enhanced by the flavorful additions of terpenes.

Vaping is the act of warming a substance and turning it into gas form so it can be inhaled. The devices that enable this are e-cigarettes and vape pens, which have grown in popularity, as they enable users to enjoy the act of smoking while avoiding the hazards of smoke and some of the chemicals found in tobacco.

Vaping is the quickest way to feel the effects of CBD, with an onset rate of 1-3 minutes. The act of inhalation leads CBD molecules directly into the blood stream, brain and lungs which then distribute them to the entire body through the blood stream. With inhalation, the effects of CBD last for 1-3 hours.

There is evidence that the combination of CBD and vaping can help people quit smoking. It was found that smokers who vaped CBD managed to smoke less cigarettes without having additional nicotine cravings.

There are various types of vaping devices out there, but the most popular are e-cigarettes, vape pens and mods (another kind of vape pen enhanced with additional features).

E-cigarettes are the most popular and easy to use and enable users to enjoy the act of smoking while avoiding the hazards of smoke and chemicals found in tobacco.

Vape pens are generally less expensive and are simpler in design; they look like large fountain pens.

CBD e-liquid is put into a cartridge that is placed in the body of the device. There is a heating component within the device that is usually powered by batteries that heats the liquid into inhalable aerosol, which is then inhaled by the user.

CBD oil is free of nicotine and does not cause any of the harmful effects caused by nicotine.

Moreover, CBD oil vaporizes at around 200℃, which makes it perfect for e-cigarettes. Many of our e-liquids contain terpenes that carry additional benefits and are released only at specific temperatures. In fact, the popularity of vaping CBD has grown after evidence was found that the combination of CBD and vaping can actually help people quit smoking.

Seeing that vaping has an immediate effect, it is most recommend to start with the smallest dosage. This way, you’ll be able to tell if you got the desired affect or need to top up – just make sure you are familiar with what the effects of the does are. CanaBD offers dose that is as low as 100mg per 10ml.

E-liquid, e-juice, and vape juice are different names for the same thing: a liquid that contains CBD and is used in heating devices for the purpose of vaping.  

A CBD cartridge or CBD cart is the container that holds the CBD e-liquid and is placed into a vape for the purpose of inhaling.


A high-quality cartridge contains high-quality, hemp-based CBD with other terpenes for a flavourful and pleasurable vaping experience.

No. Legal CBD contains 0.2% or less THC and will not get you high or show up on a drug test. Hemp-derived CBD is 100% non-psychoactive.

CBD oil spray is CBD oil combined with another carrier oil of some kind to thin out the product, and sometimes contains additional flavouring. It is taken orally by spraying it into the mouth. CBD oil sprays have a fast absorption rate, as the tissues in the mouth absorb it quickly and deliver it the bloodstream.

CBD spray oil is taken by placing the applicator into your mouth and using the pump to spray the oil. Try and aim for the inner cheeks, as these tissues will absorb the product and deliver it to your bloodstream.

CBD oil spray has multiple benefit:

  • Fast Absorption. CBD oil spray has the quickest absorption rate of any CBD product after inhalation. Because the spray covers a large area inside the mouth when used, it has a large surface for absorption. Tincture sprays have a slightly higher absorption rate, as the alcohol increases absorption rates slightly more as well as circulation.
  • Easy to use. CBD spray oil is incredibly simple to use. Simply place the applicator in your mouth and spray!

High quality, hemp-based CBD is a natural, holistic supplement with little to no side effects. CBD oil sprays allow you to get all the benefits that CBD has to offer by quickly and easily spraying it into the mouth. CBD is known for its ability to help maintain overall health and can provide a general sense of wellbeing.
