What is CBD Oil? This will be one of the first questions many ask when dabbling in the idea of trying CBD for daily well-being. CBD Uplift has you covered, in this blog short blog post I will cover just that. I will start this blog with the brief description of what CBD is. 

Cannabidiol abbreviated to the more commonly known CBD as we know it is a naturally occurring non-psychoactive cannabinoid found within the hemp plant or as it is more commonly known cannabis sativa L. plants. 


CBD is a phytocannabinoid that was first discovered back in the mid 1900’s. CBD is only 1 of at least 113 identified cannabinoids within a cannabis plant and it makes up a huge 40% of the plant's extract. Unlike the cannabinoid Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) which gets the user ‘High” CBD is a non-psychoactive cannabinoid which does not cause any negative effects and has been known to have many health benefits. Many users have reported improvement with insomnia, muscle recovery & joint pain relief just to name a few. 

Now let’s talk a little bit more about what exactly CBD oil is. Cannabidiol oil, or as it is more commonly known CBD oil is a fabulous food supplement. CBD oil is available in different strengths & different forms of oil, Full spectrum & Broad-spectrum CBD Oils are rich in cannabinoids, terpenes and flavonoids. CBD Isolate oils usually only contain CBD. At CBD Uplift we specialise in Full spectrum CBD oils.

CBD oil is created by extracting CBD from the cannabis plant & then diluting it with a carrier oil, such as Hemp seed oil, 
unrefined coconut MCT oil or Avocado oil just to mention a few, however there is a large list of carrier oils that are consumable and may be used with CBD products, each carrier oil can add additional benefits to the CBD product. 


At CBD Uplift all of our CBD is extracted using a method known as Supercritical CO2 (carbon dioxide) extraction, this is the safest method used to extract CBD without leaving any nasty residuals or chemicals behind. It is also deemed a very efficient and environmentally friendly way to extract CBD. We then use Hemp seed oil as our carrier oil to create our premium CBD products, we choose to use hemp seed oil as our carrier oil due to the additional benefits it contributes to our finished CBD products.Hemp seed oil has many benefits such as; containing high levels of healthy unsaturated fats, promotes heart health, known to maintain healthy skin and promotes a healthy digestion. (We will be writing a blog posts specifically on CO2 extraction & What are carrier oils. Keep an eye on our site for these articles in the coming weeks)
