Our Guide to CBD & Hemp Extracts

CBD is an all-natural hero of the plant world

CBD has exploded in popularity over the last few years due to its all-natural, plant-based benefits. At Freddie’s, we grow and bottle all our own hemp extracts so we can share the benefits of CBD with everyone.

All Natural

How does it work?

How do I Use CBD?

Sublingually

Take anywhere from .25ml to 2 ml of CBD oil, as directed by a health professional, underneath your tongue and keep it there for 60 seconds. Most people feel their desired effect quickly. Repeat as needed. 

Shop CBD Oils

Topically

This method works great for targeting specific areas. Just rub a small amount of topical product onto the affected area: a little goes a long way. Repeat as necessary.

Full spectrum vs. broad spectrum

You'll hear these terms wherever high quality CBD is on offer, and both are types of hemp extract that contain CBD plus other beneficial hemp compounds.

Full Spectrum contains all phytochemicals naturally found in the cannabis plant, including CBD, trace cannabinoids, terpenes, and essential oils. Full-spectrum extracts from hemp also come with a negligible THC content which is below 0.3%.

Broad-spectrum CBD contains cannabidiol and all the other compounds within the plant except THC, which is completely removed after the initial extraction.

Hemp oil (hemp seed oil) vs. CBD oil

CBD oil is made by extracting all the phytochemicals from the entire cannabis sativa plant, including flower, leaves and stems.  This process captures all the cannabinoids, terpenes and essential oils found in the plant.  This allows them to work in harmony and is commonly known as the entourage effect.

Hemp oil on the other hand is derived strictly from the seed oil and does not use any other part of the plant.  While hemp oil has its benefits with the essential oils it contains, it has no CBD, terpenes, THC, or any other cannabinoid. Hemp oil products can be found on Amazon whereas CBD products cannot.
