About CBD

What is CBD?

Cannabidiol (CBD) is one of the hundreds of compounds, known as cannabinoids, found in the cannabis plant.

Cannabinoids act on cannabinoid receptors that are part of the endocannabinoid system found throughout the body.

CBD is the second most abundant compound in cannabis but has none of the psychoactive properties of marijuana.

Does CBD get you high?

Absolutely NO, CBD won't get you 'high'.

Although CBD is extracted from cannabis, our CBD contains the legal limit of THC, the psychoactive compound within cannabis that creates an intoxicating effect.

Rio-Vitalise's products are independently lab tested to ensure they are within the legal limits of THC.

Is CBD safe?

Yes, CBD is safe and has been approved by the World Health Organisation since 2018 as "generally well tolerated with a good safety profile".

How should I store my CBD?

Proper storage is important for maintaining the quality and potency of your CBD oil. Here are some tips for storing your CBD oil:

  1. Keep it away from light: Exposure to light can cause CBD oil to break down and lose potency. It's best to store CBD oil in a dark, cool place, such as a pantry or cabinet.
  2. Store it in an airtight container: Air exposure can also cause CBD oil to degrade over time. Store your CBD oil in an airtight container, such as a dark glass bottle with a tight-fitting lid, to minimize air exposure.
  3. Keep it cool: Heat can also cause CBD oil to degrade, so it's best to store it in a cool place. Room temperature or below is ideal.
  4. Avoid moisture: Moisture can cause mold or mildew to grow in your CBD oil, which can be harmful to your health. Keep your CBD oil away from any sources of moisture

Medical & Health

Can I use CBD when pregnant/breastfeeding?

It is generally recommended that pregnant and breastfeeding individuals consult with a healthcare provider before using any products that contain CBD (cannabidiol).

If CBD helps, why don't you make medical claims?

CBD is classified as a food – not a medicine – which means claims of medical benefits are not allowed by any CBD brand.

The Food Standards Agency (FSA) doesn’t permit brands to make any claims about the medical benefits of CBD. 

Can CBD interfere with any prescribed medication?

CBD can interact with prescription medications due to shared liver enzymes, potentially affecting medication effectiveness or causing unintended side effects, making it important to consult a healthcare provider before using CBD with any prescription medication and to use high-quality, reputable CBD products.
