What are CBD Oils? 

Voyager’s premium CBD oils are made with CBD isolate and MCT coconut oil. They are supplied in three flavours and strengths – orange & lemon, peppermint and natural – 1000mg, 2000mg and 3000mg. We also have stronger option called Amphora by Voyager Peace 6000mg. This CBD oil has been formulated to reduce day to day stresses and contains specially selected terpenes which provide a rich, aromatic taste. Our CBD oils are stored in amber bottles which protects the CBD  from direct sunlight and keeps it at its most effective. Each of our bottles are fitted with a calibrated pipette for convenient dosage measurement.

Benefits of taking CBD Oils

The benefits of taking CBD oil are the same as taking any other ingestible CBD product. CBD is a powerful anti-inflammatory and interacts with the endocannabinoid system of the body to help lower inflammation and restore balance to passive bodily functions such as sleep cycles and mood regulation. Many people using CBD feel that it helps lessen anxiety, improve sleep, and reduce joint and muscle pain. 

It is important to note that every person will react to CBD differently due to diet, weight metabolism and of course your reason for taking CBD in the first place. CBD can also take up to five days before any notable effects are felt as this is how long it takes for the compound to build up a supply within the body. For best results, CBD should be taken daily over a long period of time.

Where does the CBD come from? 

Our CBD, short for cannabidiol, is dervived from the hemp plant and is one of over a 100 compounds that are found in this healing plant. CBD is extracted from the plant through CO2 extraction methods or ethanol extraction. What is left behind is pure CBD in its crystalline form which can then be added to oils and products.

How to Take CBD Oils

The CBD content of Voyager’s oils are measured in milligrams, contrary to other companies that measure the strength of the oil in percentages. This is because the CBD isolate is weighed out in milligrams before being added to the MCT coconut oil so this method ensures our customers know exactly how much CBD is in our products with no extra mathematics required.

The maximum recommended daily dose of CBD in the UK is 70mg. This means that the strength of the oil purchased will determine how much CBD oil is needed. By design, each CBD bottle is packaged with dosage instruction for convenience.

To take CBD oil, firstly measure out the preferred dosage with the pipette, then drop under the tongue and hold for 1 minute before swallowing the oil for best results. This allows the CBD to be directly absorbed into the bloodstream. While this method offers the quickest and most efficient way to consume CBD oil, you can also mix the oil into beverages such as coffee or smoothies for an alternative approach. It’s recommended to ingest CBD with something containing fat, as it is fat soluble and does not mix well with water alone. Additionally, it’s crucial not to expose CBD to temperatures exceeding 176°C, as this can cause it to degrade and reduce its effectiveness.

What is CBD Isolate? 

CBD isolate is the purest form of CBD as it only contains CBD – no other compounds or terpenes that can be found in the hemp plant. Other forms of CBD include broad spectrum and full spectrum which may include other compounds and small amounts of THC. CBD isolate is tested to make sure 0.0% of THC is present in the product which makes it ideal for athletes, professionals, and military personnel. 

Are CBD Oils legal in the UK? 

Yes, CBD oil is legal in the UK. To protect the customer there are certain laws and regulations that must be adhered to businesses can sell CBD.
