Jacob Hooy CBD Oil is non-psychoactive and the content of THC is tested on every batch to meet specification requirements of less than 0.05%. CBD+ Oil has a ‘distinctive’ taste – have a small drink of water after taking the oil and the taste will be gone within 30 seconds.

Jacob Hooy CBD Oil 2.75% contains CBD (cannabidiol) which is an active substance found in hemp oil and is extracted from the leaves and flowers of the hemp plant.

Supporters of CBD oil believe it may help a number of clinical conditions, including refractory epilepsy, chronic pain, depression, anxiety and acne. However, further robust evidence is required as much of the research is carried out on animal models.

There are some suggestions from animal studies that CBD may be beneficial for osteoarthritis, through topical application for inflammation or joint pain.

Is CBD oil legal in the UK?

Cannabidiol (CBD) is a cannabinoid – a chemical compound that acts throughout the body, including on certain parts of the brain, and is becoming increasingly popular in the health world. It comes from the cannabis plant; however, unlike its counterpart, tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), which is responsible for the ‘high’ from marijuana, CBD, derived from the hemp plant, is non-intoxicating and some believe it may have potential health and wellness benefits. Once extracted from the cannabis plant, it is diluted with a carrier such as olive or coconut oil – this improves its bio-availability.

A small number of patients in the UK may be prescribed a cannabis-based medicine to treat epilepsy or nausea during chemotherapy. Visit the NHS website for more information on medical cannabis.

CBD may also have the potential to help reduce acne; however, it is important to note that this research is still in its infancy.

CBD sold as food, or as a food supplement, includes:

Although CBD is a chemical found naturally within the cannabis plant it has only very recently been extracted and sold as a separate product. There is still a lot we don’t know about CBD extracts, and there has been very little research about the effects they may have. We will get more information as businesses apply for novel food authorisation for their CBD products.

Advice for vulnerable groups

CBD extracts are being sold as a food and as food supplements in the UK. They are widely available in shops, cafés and for sale online.

Based on the information we have we advise consumers to think carefully before taking any CBD products. As a precaution, we do not recommend CBD for people in vulnerable groups, unless under medical direction.

If you have any health concerns, please contact a healthcare professional.
