What is CBD Oil?
CBD, short for Cannabidiol, is the non-psychoactive compound found in hemp plants. It’s becoming a top trend in the health, beauty and wellness industries around the world due to it's healing properties which can help control how the body relieves stress and achieves balance. CBD won't get you 'high', unlike it’s well known counterpart, THC, and is perfectly legal in the UK.
How Can CBD Help You?
As one of the most popular health and wellness natural ingredients of the last few years, there has been huge excitement over how CBD seems to have such a variety of positive effects to help you feel more balanced and less stressed. At TRIP, we think there are three main benefits that you can derive from adding CBD into your daily routine, whether that's in the form of CBD drinks or CBD oils:

Reduce daily stresses, limit anxieties, and balance your day to day
Find Stress Free Sleep
Quiet a busy mind and wind down before sleep
How to take CBD?
To try CBD oil, just place a few drops of oil under your tongue and leave for a minute before swallowing. This way, it moves directly into the bloodstream and gets to work fast, rather than passing through your digestive system, as is the case with edibles.
CBD oil historically has been quite bitter with an ‘earthy’ taste, so look out for flavoured oils such as our delicious blends of wild mint or Orange Blossom.
When to Take CBD?
CBD is popularly used as part of an overall wellness routine, giving you a moment of calm whenever you might need it.
Whilst you can take CBD oil at any point of your day, we recommend taking it first thing in the morning to start your day stress-free, and just before you go to bed to unwind and slow racing thoughts. Complement this routine with a CBD drink during the day or evening to get the best results.

However, many CBD products on the high street aren’t always properly authorised. So when you’re looking to buy CBD oil, CBD drinks or other CBD products, it’s best to buy them from trusted sources, pharmacies and stores.
