The safety and satisfaction of our customers is our primary concern.
CBD (or cannabidiol) is a compound found in relative abundance in the hemp plant (Cannabis sativa). It has various medicinal uses, and is the main active ingredient in hemp-based products, including oils , capsules , edibles , gummies and skin care products . CBD is non-intoxicating, which means that it will not make you ‘high’. By contrast, THC is the intoxicating component of cannabis that produces mind altering effects. All of Naturecan’s CBD products are purified to ensure they contain non-detectable levels of THC, which means they are completely safe for consumption and there is no risk of intoxication.
Numerous studies indicate that CBD oil can be effective in managing a range of medical conditions, including anxiety, inflammation, insomnia, and chronic pain. CBD oil interacts with the body through an intricate network of cannabidiol receptors which, along with certain enzymes, form the endocannabinoid system (ECS). Once this vast inherent system of receptors is stimulated, they assist the body in manufacturing chemicals called endocannabinoids, which play a huge role in regulating vital daily functions including mood, sleep, and appetite.

In the UK, any product derived from cannabis containing less than 0.2% THC is regarded as safe and legal for consumption. Furthermore, as CBD is not intoxicating, it is perfectly legal to drive after taking it.
To take CBD oil, lift your tongue to the roof of your mouth and place a few drops under it. Hold the drops there for one minute before swallowing. Doing so allows the CBD to be fully absorbed into the bloodstream via the oral mucosa. It can take 15-30 mins for CBD oil to take effect.
Dosage differs with each person, depending on a range of factors including weight, height, age, and reasons for taking CBD. The FSA recommends a maximum total daily CBD dose of 70mg. This includes any additional products, so please ensure that you never exceed this amount. While following this guidance, you can manage your daily dosage based on what works best for you, and combine various CBD products if desired.
To find your optimal CBD dosage, try out our CBD Oil Dosage Calculator.
CBD is a natural compound that affects everyone differently. While there have been no serious reported side-effects of CBD consumption, it is recommended that you start by consuming low doses and gradually increase the amount if you do not experience side-effects.
According to the World Health Organisation (WHO), “CBD is generally well tolerated with a good safety profile. There is no evidence of recreational use of CBD, or any public health-related problems”.
Some uncommon side-effects of CBD include a dry mouth, reduced blood pressure, and light-headedness. If you are taking any other medication in conjunction with CBD, consult your doctor to confirm whether this could cause adverse side-effects.

CBD DOSAGE CALCULATOR
Dosage differs for each person, depending on a range of factors, including weight, height, and reasons for taking CBD.
To find your optimal dosage, use our CBD Dosage Calculator below.
There are many different ways to take CBD oil. Common means of administration include CBD capsules, oil drops, balms, edibles and vapes.
1. CBD capsules
CBD capsules are a good place to start for people new to CBD, as they are easy to take and offer a simple way to manage your dosage. Naturecan’s CBD softgel capsules come in two dosages: 10mg and 25mg. CBD capsules usually take 1-2 hours to work, and the effects can last for 2-8 hours.
2. CBD oil drops
CBD oil drops have higher bioavailability than most other means of administration, which means that they increase the amount of CBD that enters the bloodstream. To take CBD oil, simply place a few drops under your tongue and hold them there for around a minute before swallowing. This will allow the CBD oil to be absorbed directly into the bloodstream via the oral mucosa, so that the effects may be felt more quickly than other means of taking CBD. CBD oil starts working within 15-30 mins, and its effects can last for 2-8 hours. Naturecan offers CBD oils in six different strengths, so you can find the perfect concentration for your needs.
3. CBD balms
While CBD oils and CBD capsules work systemically to affect the whole body, CBD balms and other skincare products allow the user to target problem areas, such as sore joints or muscles, and keep CBD benefits localised to the point where they are most needed.
4. CBD edibles
CBD snacks , CBD gummies and other edible products are a delicious way to get your daily dose of CBD. Popular CBD edibles include cookies, brownies, nut butters, gummies and chocolates.
5. CBD vapes
CBD vapes are an effective way to absorb CBD into the body. The bioavailability is higher than other routes of administration such as sublingual (oral drops) and topical (skin creams/balms). This means that CBD can enter into the bloodstream faster and its effects can be felt sooner. While vape products are seen as a reduced risk alternative for smokers, we would not encourage non-smokers to take up vaping.
The price of CBD oil varies depending on many factors, including the purity and strength of the oil, and the costs of cultivation and extraction. For example, in the UK, the cost of CBD oils can range from £10 to £300.
The price of Naturecan’s CBD products differs in large part according to the number of milligrams (mg) of CBD they contain. On average, the higher the concentration of CBD in a product, the lower the price per milligram, and the higher the overall price.
For example, a 10ml bottle of CBD oil with 5% concentration and 500mg of CBD costs £0.06 per mg and £30 overall, whereas a 10ml bottle with 40% concentration and 4000mg of CBD costs £0.04 per mg and £150 overall.
The table below shows the price of CBD oil per mg for various strengths and volumes.
When it comes to optimising your daily CBD intake, it’s less about choosing the right oil strength and more about calculating the right amount of CBD to take per day (in milligrams).
For example, the table below shows that two drops of 5% CBD oil contain as much CBD as 1 drop of 10% CBD oil (approximately 4 mg of CBD). Thus, while the 10% oil is twice as strong as the 5%, you can get exactly the same dosage of CBD simply by doubling the number of drops you take.

Yes. All mammals have an endocannabinoid system (ECS) that keeps the body in a balanced state by regulating essential psychological and physiological functions. CBD interacts with the ECS in a similar way for both animals and humans.
Initial studies have shown that CBD can help with a number of pet conditions. If you want to learn more about CBD for pets, check out our blog post: ” Is CBD Safe For Your Pets? “.
When buying CBD oil, make sure that the oil contains safe levels of THC (less than 0.2%), that it is completely plant-based (with no added synthetic material), and that the seller provides a Certificate of Analysis for the oil as proof of its safety and quality.
Naturecan’s CBD oil has non-detectable levels of THC and is derived exclusively from US-grown hemp plants, which means that we never use isolates or synthetic materials and only ever use natural, plant-based CBD.
Furthermore, all our products undergo strict testing by independent laboratories to guarantee their safety and quality, and our Certificates of Analysis are easily accessible for full transparency.
All Naturecan products are manufactured with industry-leading technology and undergo rigorous third-party testing to ensure product quality, customer safety, and supply chain transparency.
Naturecan’s CBD oil is a broad-spectrum distillate, which means that it contains a range of naturally occurring compounds from the hemp plant (including cannabinoids, terpenoids and other phytochemicals) and non-detectable levels of THC – making our oil as potent, pure and safe as possible.
Let’s take a look at five key reasons why Naturecan is different:
1. Our manufacturer, IAH Oregon, was the first licensed hemp and cannabis producer on the West Coast of the USA. They use the most advanced technology in the industry for their extraction process, and benefit from Oregon’s rich organic soils, which provide optimal growing conditions for hemp plants.
2. Our extraction process involves three main stages: supercritical CO² extraction, chromatographic purification (by RotaChrom), and distillation. During this process, we remove as much THC from the oil as possible (non-detectable at 0.02%) along with all compounds that may negatively affect the taste, consistency and purity of the end product (such as lipids, waxes, flavonoids and chlorophyll), while maximising the concentration of CBD and other essential cannabinoids.
3. Our CBD is obtained exclusively from the hemp plant. We never use isolates or any man-made synthetic material. We only ever use natural, plant-based CBD. Our oil contains a rich mix of cannabinoids and phytochemicals that work together to enhance its effectiveness – a phenomenon known as the ‘entourage effect’.
4. We use organic MCT oil (extracted from coconut) as our carrier oil because it improves the bioavailability of CBD (the amount of CBD that enters the bloodstream) and has a mild taste.
5. We can guarantee the purity of our oil based on our rigorous testing protocols. All our raw materials are tested and qualified for use before entering the extraction process, and our end products then undergo rigorous independent testing by labs such as TÜV SÜD to have their safety and potency guaranteed. This process consists of at least six stages, and includes tests for CBD potency, pesticides, heavy metals, microbial contamination and residual solvents. Labdoor, one of the largest independent testing centers from the USA, awards our CBD an A+.

CBD, short for the term ‘cannabidiol’, is a natural compound found in the cannabis plant that has therapeutic potential when it interacts with the body. CBD oil doesn’t cause you to feel impaired or high but rather works alongside a natural hormonal system inside your body called the endocannabinoid system. The endocannabinoid system plays a role in many of the body’s biological responses, including balancing our body’s immune system, communication between cells, appetite, metabolism, memory, sleep and more.
Medical cannabis can be used to treat a variety of conditions where other medications and treatments have failed, or if you are experiencing side-effects of treatment. Patients suffering from chronic pain, neuropathy and psychiatric conditions have found benefits. It may also be a good option if you prefer to use plant-based medicines over pharmaceutical medications.
Medicinal cannabis does not suit everyone, and people react differently. We encourage you to make a booking with one of our experienced doctors to determine if medicinal cannabis is a good treatment option for you.
CBD oil and medical cannabis are currently being used under prescription by patients throughout New Zealand to support a wide range of conditions including pain, fibromyalgia, migraines, sleep, gastrointestinal problems and insomnia.
CBD oil supplements the body’s own cannabis hormonal system, called the endocannabinoid system. CBD oil may help promote a sense of calmness, relieve anxiety and reduce pain through its anti-inflammatory effects. THC oil may be helpful for sleeping / insomnia and for more severe pain symptoms.
