What is CBD?
CBD, or cannabidiol, is one of the 104 chemical compounds found in the cannabis plant. A majority of these cannabinoids are formed on the plant’s leaves and buds.
Another well-known cannabinoid is tetrahydrocannabinol, or THC. CBD and THC are often mistaken for each other, even though both compounds are completely different and have unique properties. CBD, unlike THC, has no psychoactive properties and can therefore not get users “high.” THC, on the other hand, is often used for recreational purposes due to its psychotropic effects.
In recent years, products like CBD oil have soared in popularity. When it comes to these products, CBD oil is perhaps the most prevalent as it can be dosed very precisely and accurately. One of the main reasons this product has gained so much ground is that the sublingual application method allows more CBD to be rapidly absorbed into the bloodstream than other methods.
How is CBD manufactured?
CBD oil consists of CBD paste that has been blended with hemp seed or olive oil. Most CBD oils are produced using the CO2 extraction method, preserving and retaining all the different natural cannabinoids. Products that have been made using this method, therefore, contain not only CBD but also a variety of other beneficial cannabinoids. When combined, these different cannabinoids work together to produce an optimal result, which enthusiasts often call the “entourage effect.” The CBD oils produced using this method are often called “RAW” (as in the case of MediHemp Raw CBD).
Another extraction method that can be used to derive CBD from the plant is the so-called oil extraction method, which only uses the buds of the hemp plant. This extraction process requires that the carrier oil be heated; the other cannabinoids naturally present in the plant get lost during this process. The CBD oils produced using the CO2 extraction method are usually referred to as “Pure” OIL and often have a nutty taste. “RAW” CBD oil, on the other hand, tends to have a more bitter and pungent flavour.
The human body also produces (indigenous) cannabinoids using its own endocannabinoid system. This system was first discovered approximately 30 years ago and was found to regulate various important bodily processes such as pain perception, sleep, and mental health.
How do I know which brand is legit?
There are many different brands of CBD oil out there, which can make it confusing to find one that’s right for you. All our CBD products have a so-called ‘batch number’ (i.e., a number assigned to a production batch that can be used to identify each individual product). This can be found on the bottom or side of the product. Every time a batch of oil is made, a sample will be sent to an independent, third-party laboratory to be tested for cannabinoid potency. These reports are available to customers so that you can verify the quality for yourself.
How to use CBD products
It is important to know that there are different methods of consumption. We can help you figure out which is right for you.
In terms of CBD, common oral consumption methods include CBD oil and CBD capsules. The former is among the most popular CBD products on the market right now. Our CBD oils come in a precise, easy-to-use, and convenient dropper bottle. By simply putting a few drops of CBD oil under your tongue, the tincture will be absorbed through your oral mucosa and into your bloodstream. CBD oil can be mixed in various foods and beverages, making CBD oil a desirable method of consumption for children and pets.
Our CBD pastes and CBD crystals can also be applied sublingually, allowing the tincture to be absorbed through your oral mucosa and into your bloodstream. In addition, both the paste and crystals can be mixed with a neutral carrier oil, such as hemp seed oil or olive oil, and subsequently consumed in the same way as always. CBD pastes and CBD crystals usually contain a high percentage of CBD.
Some people can’t get used to the fact that CBD oils often have a very unusual and rather pungent flavour. That’s why we offer capsules that are tasteless and odourless. While tinctures and bottled CBD oils are perhaps the most popular way of ingesting CBD, these capsules contain exactly the same formula – they’re just absorbed differently. While the sublingual delivery method allows the compound to be absorbed by the mucous membranes and directly into the bloodstream, the capsules take a bit longer to be absorbed. Research suggests that CBD capsules stay in your system longer than sublingually applied CBD.
When taking CBD oil orally, it can take about half an hour to kick in and remain active for 6-8 hours.
We carry a wide range of ointments, creams, and skin oils that are safe and great for use on humans and animals. As a topical agent, CBD can be applied to certain body areas and can be absorbed through the skin’s surface to interact with nearby cannabinoid receptors. When using these products on pets with a thick coat of fur, we recommend shaving the area before application, which will promote CBD absorption.
Vaporising, or vaping
Vaping allows for fast absorption and a relaxing, efficient CBD experience. Many people prefer using this method to get their CBD because it is healthier than regular cigarettes or joints; there is growing evidence suggesting that vapor pens produce no toxic fumes or smoke. Vaping is an efficient method of CBD consumption and allows the active ingredients to enter the bloodstream quickly. Our e-liquids can be used with every universal vaporizer.
When vaping CBD, the vapor is absorbed very quickly into the bloodstream and has an almost immediate onset of action. The effects of the CBD-rich e-liquids can last for up to four hours.
The suppository is an often-overlooked but effective method of taking CBD oil. Endoca’s suppositories have a rich cannabidiol content and are designed to be inserted rectally or vaginally.
Why choose CBDSense.co.uk?
How much oil does one bottle contain?
Our CBD oils come in handy dropper oils that can easily drip the oil under the tongue. All you have to do is squeeze the bottle, which then dispenses only the amount you need. The number of drops per bottle may vary depending on the manufacturer, production process, and the viscosity of the CBD paste used to produce the oil. Because each batch of CBD paste is different, each batch of CBD oil will be slightly different. Usually, a 10-milliliter bottle contains approximately 200 drops, while a 30-milliliter bottle contains approximately 600 drops.
Who can use CBD products?
Like humans, all animals have an endocannabinoid system. Both humans and animals, then, may safely use CBD products. While every animal is different, CBD dosage largely depends on its size and weight. We also know that CBD oil is completely safe for children. Younger children, especially those under ten years of age, may benefit from lower strengths (e.g., 2.5%).

After answering several relevant questions, you will be presented with an overview of our most popular and relevant products.
Are CBD products legal?
As sales and interest grow, the demand for CBD products has also grown. In the Netherlands, CBD products are 100% legal because they only contain trace amounts of THC, the psychoactive compound responsible for the “high” feeling often associated with cannabis.
Because the products you can find in our online store only contain small and therefore negligible amounts of THC, they can be ordered, bought, and used legally. Different laws may apply between land territories, however. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us. We are always more than happy to answer your questions and help you out.
Which strength is right for me?
This is a difficult question to answer, as each individual is different and has their own specific needs. The CBD oils that can be bought from our online store vary in strength and range CBD percentages of 2.5% to 18%. This percentage refers to the percentage of cannabidiol (CBD) in the lot and batch. A 10-milliliter bottle of 2.5% CBD oil, for example, contains at least 250 mg of CBD. We recommend products containing a low percentage of CBD (e.g., 2.5%) for use by children and pets under 15kg. The average recommended serving size for adults is 5 milligrams or 5%. Both Jacob Hooy and Medihemp manufacture CBD oil with a percentage of five percent.
Some people want to use a higher concentration. While Medihemp’s 10% CBD oil is by far our most popular product, we even carry a Medihemp oil that contains 18% CBD.
The products with the highest concentration of CBD are CBD paste and CBD crystals. These are available in two strengths (i.e., 20% and 30%). Endoca’s CBD crystals boast an impressive CBD content of 98%.
Figuring out the right dose
A lot of people have trouble figuring out the right dose of CBD.
There’s no universal dosage that’s right for everyone, and there has been a proliferation of misconceptions about CBD. The right dose varies from individual to individual – people react differently to different strengths and concentrations. That’s why we recommend people to start low, go slow, and listen to their body. Every single one of our CBD products is equipped with a useful and practical manual.
The percentage CBD is often mentioned on a bottle of CBD oil, but we also talk about milligrams of CBD. You can easily calculate the number of milligrams of CBD by dividing the total number of milligrams of CBD by the number of drops in a bottle. One bottle of 10ml contains about 220 drops, and a bottle of 30 ml contains about 660 drops.
What are the differences between hemp and cannabis?
Many people mistakenly believe that hemp and cannabis are the same. Hemp plants, however, are mainly cultivated for a variety of industrial and medical purposes, whereas cannabis plants are mainly grown for recreational use. While both plants share the same genus and species, their respective differences mainly reside in their chemical compositions. While hemp contains little THC – the psychoactive compound in marijuana that gets users high – and is rich in CBD, cannabis is the exact opposite.
Many people aren’t aware that the hemp plant is a versatile and robust plant with many ecological benefits. Hemp fiber is amongst the strongest natural fibers known to man and has over 50,000 different applications. Hemp stems are used to produce paper, textiles, cardboard, rope, paper, packaging materials, and plastic. Its flowers are extremely rich in cannabinoids and are often used to produce dietary supplements such as CBD oil. Hemp seeds are naturally rich in vitamins and minerals, protein, and various essential fatty acids. They are often used to produce hemp seed oil, hemp milk, body, skincare products, and paint industrial manufacturing. Hemp roots also provide nutrients to the soil and can, for example, be used as natural compost.
Industrial hemp can very rapidly grow and can be used to enhance soil health in organic agriculture. Hemp seeds germinate quickly and can reach a height of three meters within 100 days from planting. Because of its height and planting density, hemp also requires far fewer pesticides, herbicides, and fertilizer than many other crops; hemp, because of its height, dense foliage, and high planting density.
The cannabis plant
The cannabis plant, in contrast to the hemp plant, contains large amounts of THC, a compound known for its psychoactive effects. The cannabis plant is generally cultivated for the extraction of this particular chemical. Hemp and cannabis are grown differently: typically, the goal of growing cannabis is to have a large yield of plants with as many buds as possible. Unlike hemp, cannabis plants are susceptible to bacteria, mold, and pathogens that can affect their output.
One of the most distinctive characteristics of cannabis is its smell. It is sharp and strong and can often be smelled from miles away.
The industrial cultivation of hemp is legal in most countries due to its negligible concentration of THC. However, the cultivation of cannabis plants is illegal, and most countries impose heavily on selling, using, or trafficking cannabis. The Netherlands is famous for its tolerant drugs policy, which permits coffee shops to sell cannabis under certain strict conditions.
What are the differences between cannabis oil and CBD oil?
While the terms “CBD oil” and “weed oil” are often used interchangeably, the differences between the two are important to wrap your head around. Cannabis oil is generally extracted from the buds of cannabis plants, which contain a lot of THC, and can, for example, be purchased at coffee shops/dispensaries. Cannabis plants are known for their large concentrations of THC and are mainly grown for recreational purposes.
On the other hand, CBD oil is often extracted from the hemp plant, which only contains trace amounts of THC but is rich in many other cannabinoids and active compounds. CBD is non-psychoactive and is mainly used because of its significant medical and therapeutic benefits. The cannabis that is around today is a lot more potent than it was a few decades ago due to the consumer demand and the fact CBD and other cannabinoids were not deemed important for a long time. As a result, growers have engineered strains of pot that are far more potent and naturally lower in CBD than THC. In fact, many weed strains nowadays don’t even contain CBD anymore.
In contrast, hemp plants are naturally rich in CBD and low in THC. The maximum content of THC allowed in hemp plants must be lower than 0.2%. CBD is now more popular than ever because it is both legal and safe: it can, therefore, be used by children and adults alike.
CBD can be diluted with oils to create CBD oil or used in a concentrated form. This concentrated form is syrupy in terms of texture and is often sold as a paste. Medicinal CBD oil is often obtained by blending cannabidiol with a carrier oil such as hemp seed or olive oil.
