What is the correct CBD dosage for me?

A question we get asked a lot at Lucid Hemp is “How much CBD should I be taking?”  It is a good and important question, and there is no one definitive answer. Additionally, there aren’t any official serving size suggestions yet, which can make matters more confusing. This blog will hopefully serve as a guide for you, when you are deciding and assessing the appropriate dose for you. The short answer is that there is no one dosage that fits all. The optimal dose will vary from individual to individual. Several factors need to be considered when deciding on a...

What is the Entourage effect?

What is the Entourage effect? The Entourage effect is a term that is thrown around a lot alongside CBD.  In summary, the Entourage Effect was originally coined by Israeli scientists, in order to categorise the way in which the chemical compounds found in hemp: cannabinoids, nutrients and other compounds work synergistically in the human body. Research has demonstrated that whilst individual cannabinoids do have certain effects and benefits on the body, these compounds work synergistically to produce a stronger influence than any individual compound in the group. Therefore, using the whole plant maximises the benefits delivered throughout the body, and...

Cannabis is something that has seen its fair share of the news spotlight in recent months.

Improve your morning routine with CBD

Picture this: It’s Monday, 7.30am and your alarm is blaring away next to you. Bleary eyed, you make a grab for your phone and if you’re lucky hit the snooze button to get another ten minutes of bliss. If not, then the next best thing is to make for the kettle and get some coffee down you. Sound familiar? Many of us have a hard time functioning in the morning for two principle reasons: first, the lack of available energy from having just woken up, and second - the leering, overarching knowledge that there’s an entire new week to grind...

The Origins of 4/20

There is a lot of speculation as to how the cult phrase “4/20” began. One theory suggests that it was a police code used when there were instances of “marijuana smoking in progress” however we now know this to be false.   The most likely beginning for the phrase, attested by multiple sources is that it originated in 1971 Marin County California. A group of high school students would meet after school at 4:20pm to smoke weed together, referring to themselves as “The Waldos”. One of the members of the group, Dave Reddix, began to work as a roadie with...

What is CBD?

What is the fuss all about?  We think it is incredibly important that you know what you are putting into your body, so we want to be as clear with you as possible with our products. CBD is an acronym for Cannabidiol, which is one of two main cannabinoids found in the Cannabis and Hemp plants.   Cannabinoids have received an infamous reputation due to CBD’s counterpart, Tetrahydrocannabinol, or THC. However, CBD is not psychoactive: this means that unlike THC, ingesting CBD won’t get you ‘high’, meaning the benefits of the plant can be extracted without the negative side effects that THC causes.  As there is no high, CBD...
