What is CBD?
CBD is an abbreviation of Cannabidiol. A constituent of the Cannabis Sativa L. Hemp plant, including THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) which is the psychoactive element of the plant. These are the two most prominent cannabinoids of this wonderful plant. Research and scientific advancement led to the discovery of what is referred to as the endocannabinoid system within the human physiology.
Is it legal?
Yes! CDB is legal in the UK. Currently, UK legislation supports the sale of CBD with a THC content of less than 0.2%. If you decide to introduce CBD oil to your diet, then we suggest you research into the plant from which it originated. You should also look at the inclusive amounts of CBD and THC. It is a requirement that CBD products sold in the UK must be accompanied with a certified laboratory test report. An expiry date as well as a batch number should also be available with product labelling and packaging, our CBD oil fulfils this criteria.

What is the difference between CBD and THC?
CBD (Cannabidiol) and THC (Tetrahydrocannabinol) are the two most prominent constituents of the hemp plant and quite often they get mixed up with each other. They do however exhibit very different traits.
THC is the psychoactive element and is often associated with the 'high that marijuana smokers would attest to. Unlike THC, CBD is non-psychoactive, and is actually known to have a somewhat sedative, calming and relaxing effect.
Are your products full spectrum?
Yes, currently all of our products consist of full-spectrum extracts. Bare in mind that we only use UK/EU approved strains of industrial hemp which produce less than the legal allowance of THC once cultivated and extracted. This is evident in the distinct dark colour that our oil has. This means all of the essential full range of cannabinoids are available and you receive all the beneficial constituents of a healthy, legal hemp plant.
What does it taste like?

Our products are not infused with any additives, artificial colourings or preservatives, giving you the quality you need in your food supplement.
How do you take CBD?
Valley Dew suggests that you take our CBD Hemp oil using the conventional sublingual method.
(Sublingual) 'Hold oil under your tongue'
Simply apply recommended amount of drops under the tongue and hold for about 30-60 seconds, and gradually swallow. We suggest that you do not ingest any food or drink orally for at least 10 minutes before or after administration so to increase the bioavailability and absorption into the body. This sublingual application method promotes faster delivery because the CBD and hemp oil’s other natural constituents bypass the digestive system and 1st phase metabolisation by the liver.
