Cannabidiol (CBD) is a naturally-occurring constituent of industrial hemp (cannabis sativa) plants. It is the most abundant non-psychoactive cannabinoid found in cannabis and is being scientifically investigated for numerous reasons. Most people have heard of a cannabinoid called THC, which is the ingredient in cannabis that gets users high. Unlike THC, CBD (cannabidiol) is a non-psychoactive cannabinoid and does not cause a high.
Place drops under the tongue and hold. The oil should absorb naturally within 60 seconds. The below table provides a basic guide that New Users of Fox CBD Oil can follow. New users should start with lowest strength CBD Oil and only build up to stronger CBD strength Oil if required.

Dosage and CBD strength is down to personal preference but if you have any questions, please get in touch with us and speak to our on-site pharmacist or consult your doctor.
The oromucusal route is preferred because oral cannabinoids are subject to degradation in the gut, also if they are taken orally they undergo what is termed first pass metabolism by the liver. This is where the concentration of the product is greatly reduced before it reaches the systemic circulation however with absorption from directly from the oral mucosa it is absorbed directly into the blood stream thus avoiding the issue and achieving a higher circulating concentration.

We’d like to clear something up. As the two main ingredients in the cannabis plant, it can be easy to confuse CBD and THC. However other than both being called cannabinoids, they are not the same thing. High levels of THC are commonly found in the popular plant but less so in the case of CBD. It makes sense, then, that THC can send you soaring on a high while CBD is reassuringly non-psychoactive. Disappointing to recreational users, perhaps, but brilliant news for the thousands of people looking to benefit from its potentially restorative properties without enduring unwanted side effects.
Yes! Fx CBD oil is legal as long as it contains less than 0.2% THC which is the active component in Marijuana, our CBD oil contains zero THC therefore it is perfectly legal and safe.
CBD doesn’t contain the same psychoactive properties as THC meaning it can be ingested without the side effects usually associated with marijuana or cannabis. So it’s not hard to see why it’s fast becoming a popular addition to people’s daily routine as a dietary supplement.
Good question. Unlike THC, the dominant marijuana compound that does cause a high, Fox CBD does not contain the same psychoactive properties. For you, that means the safe and secure use of CBD, able to harness its benefits while being in complete control.
As always, you should consult with your Doctor or Pharmacist prior to taking any new supplements or medications to ensure there are no conflicts in their effects on your system.
No, we are distributing Fox CBD oil products as food supplements and in line with the guidelines stipulated by the MHRA we are therefore unable to make any medical claims about our oil specifically. We would like to point you to the wealth of research that is available online regarding the medical uses of Cannabis and CBD if you would like more information. As always we would recommend that you speak to your Doctor or Pharmacist before starting any new supplements if you have any concerns.
The World Health Organisation have issued a paper which specifically details the addiction potential of CBD and it has this to say on the subject:
“In humans, CBD exhibits no effects indicative of any abuse or dependence potential.” WHO, 2017
The study also goes on to state that CBD has a good safety profile, is well tolerated and has no significant potential for abuse due to the low possibility of tolerance occurring.
We are selling Fox CBD Oil as a food supplement and can therefore make no medical claims about our oil specifically, it is a nutritional supplement. The World Health Organisation has published a study about CBD and below is a table taken from that study which collates all the evidence to date about which conditions CBD has shown to be helpful for.
