What is CBD?
CBD is one of the 113 cannabinoids found in the cannabis plant. The ones you may be familiar with are THC and CBD.
Cannabidiol is a non-psychoactive compound that can be extracted from the plant into a distilled oil or powder. Due to the fact it doesn’t have psychoactive properties, it will not give you any symptoms of feeling high. Such as, hunger, giggles, confusion, hallucinations or sickness.
The naturally occurring substance can be used to create products such as oils, gummies, teas, e-liquids and more.
What might CBD help with?
CBD has been used for thousands of years. In fact, the use of the cannabinoid dates back to 2737BC when the Chinese Emperor Seng Nung used cannabis tea to help with memory, rheumatism, gout and malaria. You can read more about the history of CBD over at Vape and Juice’s blog.
Today, CBD is being researched more and more. While it is still in its infancy, it has shown promise for a number of conditions and ailments. You may find that CBD helps with the following:
- Pain and inflammation
- Depression and anxiety
- Hormone balance
- Sleep disorders

Is CBD legal?
Now you know where you can buy the cannabinoid in a CBD shop near me, you will want to know if it is legal. In the UK, CBD is legal to buy, without prescription. In some countries, such as Australia, you need to have a prescription. It is always best to check the laws in the country where you are buying and using the cannabinoid.
CBD doesn’t have psychoactive effects unlike THC, which is why it is legal in the majority of places. We always recommend that you check your location before you place your order.
Does it have any negative side effects?
CBD hasn’t been known to have serious negative side effects, however, you might notice a few things depending on how you take the cannabinoid and how much of it you take.
For example, if you choose to vape CBD you might find that you are prone to a dry mouth. Combat this by making sure you drink enough water.
Some people report that CBD they feel sick or have an upset stomach if they take the cannabinoid on an empty stomach. If this is the case for you, make sure you have some food in your belly before taking your dose.
How much CBD should I take?
How much CBD you take depends on factors such as your size, metabolism and tolerance. Some people can tolerate higher doses than others. We always suggest that you start on a low dose and gradually build up. Generally, people take one pipet squeeze a day, however, the strength of the CBD may vary.
Where can I shop if there isn’t a CBD shop near me?
If no good retailers come up when you search CBD shop near me, then it’s time to go online. Make sure you follow our tips for finding a decent supplier online. Ideally, you’ll be able to easily contact them through live chat or social media to ask any questions as you won’t have a physical person to assist you.
Can I vape CBD oil from OurRemedy?
Our Remedy is a CBD oil, not a vape juice. Sometimes people call CBD e-liquid CBD vape oil. This can be confusing, leading you to think you can pop the oil into your vape tank. This would not be a good idea. You shouldn’t vape oil! Oil isn’t designed to move through your lungs or your vape device and can be very dangerous.
Make sure if you want to vape CBD that you buy a CBD e-liquid. There are some great flavours on the market, including fruity vapes like notes or authentic cannabis flavours.
How do you take tincture drops?
If you decide that tincture drops are the way to go and you have brought them from a decent CBD shop, then you will want to know how to take them. You simply draw the oil into the dropper by using the squeezer at the top. Then, lift your tongue and empty the dropper. Hold it there for 10 seconds or so before swallowing. This will allow it time to move into the bloodstream.
Should I take CBD every day?
We suggest that you take CBD as part of your daily routine. If you are using CBD for period pains then you might think you only need to use it for the week of your period. However, using it before allows the cannabinoid to build up in your system and have a better effect. Not only that, but it may also help battle those other symptoms of PMS, anxiety, hormone headaches, sleep trouble and more.
Is there an Our Remedy CBD shop near me?
Our Remedy isn’t a physical shop. We are a brand. However, there are some high street stores which stock our product, such as CBD Dispensary and CBDStar, with more coming soon.
