About CBD

What is CBD?

CBD stands for cannabidiol. CBD is a natural compound found in the Cannabis sativa L. plant – hemp being a fast-growing strain. CBD is associated with the wellbeing properties of the plant – it isn’t addictive, and you can’t get high. Unlike tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), which is the psychoactive component of the plant. THC gets left behind during CBD extraction and purification processes.

Not a chance! CBD is not psychoactive. THC, the psychoactive compound also found in hemp (excluded from broad spectrum CBD during extraction) is associated with the high.

Will CBD interact with my medication?

You should consult with your doctor prior to taking any new supplements or medications to ensure there are no conflicts in there that affect your system.

Why is CBD such big news?

CBD only took off in the 1940s. It’s hard to say exactly why CBD’s big moment is right now. But in a scientific nutshell, CBD interacts with our endocannabinoid system (ECS) which is a network of receptors in our nervous system. The ECS is known to play a role in bodily functions such as mood, pain and sleep cycle.

What is the difference between Tribal Balm and Warrior Rub?

They’re similar in that both balms are massaged into the skin to soothe aching muscles and strains. Tribal balm is particularly good for muscles and joints after a tough workout as it’s infused with stimulating menthol. Warrior Rub is great for a full body massage as it’s infused with ginger and capsicum – so it’s beautifully warming and relaxing.

Legal info

Is CBD legal?

CBD is legal in the UK if it has a THC content of below 0.02%. THC is a controlled substance under the Misuse of Drugs Act 1971. In the UK CBD is required to be derived from one of the 63 industrial-grade hemp strains that are EU approved. Regulations by the EU govern the sale of CBD in most European countries. However, these countries are allowed to make their own interpretations of the regulations and well as level of punishment, so you need to check each country’s stance on CBD before you make a purchase. Naturally, Huna completely complies with all regulations set by the UK and EU governing bodies.

Are Huna products under the legal THC level?

Yes, absolutely. We keep the THC level in our CBD well under the legal limit of 0.1%.

Can I travel with CBD?

In many countries it’s now legal to have CBD with under 0.1% THC. Our CBD is guaranteed to be under 0.1% THC. However, some countries have much stricter regulations, so you should always check with the relevant authorities. The hard rule is that if you are unsure about the legislation in a certain country, then opt to be safe and don’t travel with CBD.

Is CBD legal in sport?

Yes, the use of CBD products that comply with EU regulations are legal in sport. In 2018, the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) introduced an exception to Section 8 of the Prohibited List (cannabinoids), which permits athletes to consume CBD both in and out of competition.
