Welcome to Innaree

We are very excited to have you with us and being part of the Innaree family.

Now, we know there may be many questions you might have generally about CBD as well as for us at Innaree. Hopefully, the information here will help you not only on your CBD journey but also in getting to know ‘your’ Innaree. We will try to cover most of the common questions as well as provide more details on the Innaree products. However, if you have a question that isn’t covered here, please do get in touch and one of our team members will get back to you.

So let's make a start!

What is CBD?

CBD is short for cannabidiol, a compound found in the cannabis plant. It is one of over a hundred (113 to be exact) different cannabinoids that have been identified to-date ever since its discovery. The CBD compound has a wide range of potential benefits, especially helpful for stress, anxiety, depression, epilepsy, pain, and inflammation. What is equally interesting is that the human body also produces its own endogenous cannabinoids. The endogenous cannabinoid system within all of us is one of the most important physiologic systems involved in establishing and maintaining human health. Endocannabinoids and their receptors are found throughout the body: in the brain, organs, connective tissues, glands, and immune cells. It is for this reason that taking CBD as part of a healthy lifestyle can be so good for us. We will revisit the endogenous cannabinoid system later on in more detail for anyone who wants to know more.

So where does CBD come from and is it safe?

As mentioned above, the name CBD comes from its association with cannabis, which is the name given to an entire family of plants. However, the most common reference we all probably hear about is that related to either marijuana or hemp. Marijuana refers to the plant that is grown specifically for the purposes of ‘getting high’. Whereas hemp is a constitute of cannabis grown for a number of applications including CBD. One of the most distinguishing factors that differentiates marijuana from hemp is the THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) level and content. THC is the compound that is normally associated with the hallucinogenic or ‘getting high’ effect. By law, it is illegal in the UK to sell CBD with THC greater that 0.2%. At Innaree, we go that step further and ensure ALL of our products contain 0.0% THC, making our full range of products legal and also 100% halal too, as such it is both safe and a viable product range for everyone.

What is the best way to take CBD?

So now you know what CBD is and where it's produced from, the next question you may have is “How do I take my CBD for the best results”?

One of the most common and hence best ways to take CBD is orally, and the best way to do this is via CBD oil drops or sprays. We at Innaree believe the administering of CBD ‘drops’ provide little to no wastage since you have more control of where you place the drops, as opposed to sprays, hence all of our CBD oils come in drops format. Have a look at the Innaree Oil drops for more details and discover what suits you.

CBD oil is best applied under the tongue (also known as sublingually) as that is the quickest way for the oil to enter the body via the receptors and blood vessels located under the tongue, and importantly to allow for the highest effective percentage of CBD into the body. Place the CBD oil under the tongue for anything between 60-90 seconds for the best results (it doesn’t matter if you go over the suggested time a little).

The effects of our CBD last up to 6 hours. Knowing this information will hopefully help you to plan how you want to take your Innaree CBD Oil drops. You can either take your daily desired dosage all in one serving or break it up throughout the day thereby receiving the benefits of CBD for a longer duration. Finally, just to let you know, at Innaree after testing a wide range of flavours, over 99% of our testers found the peppermint to be the best and most subtle flavour. We have listened to our testers and as a result, all our CBD oils come with the very same peppermint flavour, no matter what size or dosage you select.

How do I determine what strength and dosage of CBD to take?

At Innaree we have chosen for you a wide range of CBD Oil strengths to try out so that you can find the best most effective strength for your body. If you are already using CBD and know the strength that suits you, then that’s great. Have a look at our CBD Oil range to select the one that best matches your known strength. If however you are totally new to CBD and don’t know which to go for, we would recommend you try one of our middle strengths, either the 1000mg or even the 1500mg. By starting near the middle, you will hopefully be able to figure out pretty quickly what works for you and whether you need to either lower the strength or go higher. One thing to be confident with when selecting the strength is that no matter which you go for, the quality and purity will be exactly the same, always.

With respect to the dosage, after exhaustive testing, we found that a happy median for most of our testers was 70mg per day. As such, we would recommend that you take 70mg daily for at least one week, ideally two and see how you feel. Listen to your body, see how satisfied you are, and based on this you can always increase or reduce the dosage at any point to suit you. If you do decide you want to vary the dosage, then try and vary it between 10-20mg and then give that a go for at least one week. We all know that no two humans are the same, so only you will know what works for you. What we would suggest is that you take the CBD consistently so that you can find the best strength and dosage that works.

Finally, just so you don’t worry when trying out different dosages, we want you to know that even at high dosage (some clinical trials in the US have tested dosages up to 500-800mg per day for a variety of conditions), pure CBD has been shown to be very safe. The US has been at the forefront of CBD usage and trials for many years (Europe is not far behind either) and there is an abundance of research and CBD trial information widely available, all at our finger tips. Don’t just take our word for it, we would definitely suggest you take a look for yourself too so that you can be fully satisfied. We would however add that in the UK, the FSA (Food Standards Agency) recommends no more than 70mg per day for a healthy adult, so please do take that as a good guide for your own dosage.

Are all the Innaree products Halal?

All of our products contain 0.0% THC, making it completely non-hallucinogenic and having zero psychoactive effects. You simply cannot get ‘high’ on any of our products. With 0.0% THC, 0.0% alcohol content and 0.0% animal ingredients, the Innaree CBD range is 100% halal CBD. Not only do we keep stringent controls in place to ensure the halal nature of all of our products are maintained at all times, we also carry out yearly independent lab testing on all of our raw products. With halal being one of our key goals, you can be satisfied that as much as it is important for us to have a full halal CBD range of products. We also understand how it’s even more important to you as the customer, so put your mind at ease and enjoy the benefits of our CBD without compromising the important halal aspect that is close to ALL of our hearts and minds.

What is the difference between ‘Pure CBD’, ‘CBD isolate’, ‘Full Spectrum’ and ‘Broad Spectrum’ CBD and which should I take?

When purchasing CBD, it can get confusing what all the different types of CBD are and what they mean. Here we explain the difference between them all.

Pure CBD and CBD isolate mean exactly the same thing. This is CBD which is over 99.9% pure CBD and has had all the other plant matter totally removed including any and all additional cannabinoids, waxes, oils and terpenes (the compound responsible for the way plants smell). Pure CBD or CBD isolate has 0.0% THC and is therefore non-hallucinogenic and has no psychoactive effects.

Broad Spectrum CBD also contains 0.0% THC. However it does contain other components of the cannabis plant, so it won’t be 100-percent CBD alone.

Full Spectrum is CBD which contains small amounts of all components of the cannabis plant. That means it can have trace amounts of THC. In the UK, the maximum percentage of THC allowed legally is 0.2%. Other countries where CBD is allowed have varying legal limits on the percentage of THC content.

Now you might be asking “So which CBD should I take”? Well, each type of CBD has its own benefits and it is personal choice which you take. We would suggest that you check all the options and what you wish to gain from your chosen CBD. At Innaree, we focus on providing you with natural (non-synthetic), organic, vegan, GMO free & pure CBD with 0.0% THC as we feel this is the safest CBD where even the heavy metals are removed (otherwise found in other variants of CBD).

What is the difference between natural and synthetic CBD?

Natural CBD is CBD produced from plants grown in a farm. Whereas synthetic CBD is CBD produced through chemical and bio-synthetic methods, such as using yeast. It is thought that scientists have managed to replicate the same benefits from synthetic CBD created in laboratories as those present in natural CBD.

At Innaree, we only provide the most natural, organic, GMO-free and pure CBD. We believe some things in the world are best kept how nature wanted it. We also believe in providing you with this premium natural CBD at affordable prices.

As part of the Innaree family, we don’t believe you should have to compromise on the type of CBD you take when we too didn’t compromise on the type of CBD we provide, the natural type.

Within the UK, as long as the THC content is below 0.2%, it is legal. The Innaree CBD range has 0.0% THC. With respect to other countries, we advise you to check with the FCDO - Foreign, Commonwealth & Development Office (check their website but also give them a call) for details of customs and restrictions for the country you wish to travel to including the restrictions in any ‘stop-over’ countries on your journey. Every country has its own stipulations with respect to CBD so check before you travel and also take all relevant documentation necessary. You may find that some customs officers may not be aware of their own countries’ rules and regulations around CBD, so documentation related to that country direct from their own government website and/or contact point is important to have at hand just in-case you need it.

One final thing to add here is that we would also advise you to carry relevant documentation on the content of your CBD and its legality within the country you are in, even if you are taking domestic flights. That may sound strange, but the simple reason for this advice is that it is perfectly normal that not everyone and every employee will know the exact legalities of CBD and taking flights, so its best just to be prepared so you can travel with that peace of mind.

Will the legal use of CBD change over time?

Within the UK alone, there are over 1 million regular users of CBD products (based on a report by the Centre for Medicinal Cannabis, in 2019 the figure was approximately 1.3 million) with far more than that figure who say they have tried it at least once already. In 2020, a forecast estimated that by 2023, the number of CBD users could be at least 5-fold in Europe, and already Europe is only second to North America in terms of the CBD market. The leading and largest markets in Europe are Germany and the UK. Many other European countries already allow CBD with their own legal conditions on the percentage of THC allowed. In late 2020, the CBD market also experienced its biggest breakthrough yet, with the European Union ruling that products containing CBD (one of the most active ingredients in cannabis) are no longer listed as narcotics.

With so much popularity, support and expected growth, we certainly expect more and more countries to come on board and better legal understanding to also follow naturally.

Can the Innaree CBD make me feel ‘high’ or give any hallucinogenic effects?

Innaree CBD is pure CBD with 0.0% THC. Pure CBD cannot make you ‘high’ and has no hallucinogenic effects.

Can I take CBD at the same time as medication?

Due to the law around CBD, it isn’t possible for any CBD provider to give medical advice however we can talk about how to use CBD. What we would suggest is that if you are taking medication, you should speak to your doctor if you are considering taking CBD. Your doctor will be able to advise you if it is safe to take CBD with the type of medication that you are already taking or any new medication you are going to be prescribed.

The main reason for this and the one aspect that is generally considered as common knowledge is the fact that some very popular citrus fruits should not be taken with medication, citrus fruits such as lime and in particular grapefruit. This is due to their inhibitor effect on an enzyme known as P450 and as a result how effective any prescribed medication would be, given fruits such as grapefruit decrease the body’s ability to break down certain medication (I.e., metabolise medication). In the same respect, CBD has similar inhibitor effect on the P450 enzyme. It is for this reason that we advise you to speak with your doctor so they can take all things into consideration and advise you if its ok to take with your specific medication. You should advise the doctor that the THC content in Innaree CBD is 0.0% which will help in the doctor's assessment.

Are there any side effects of taking CBD?

Over the years, there have been many studies and trials carried out across the world on CBD and research into the many benefits and also any potential side effects. According to an in-depth detailed report carried out in 2018 by experts from the World Health Organisation (WHO), it was concluded that "Across a number of controlled and open label trials [on] CBD of the potential therapeutic effects of CBD it is generally well tolerated, with a good safety profile”. The report also concluded that “CBD does not produce the effects that are typically seen with cannabinoids such as THC. It also failed to produce significant effects in a human study of abuse”. Other separate reports mention potential side effects such as slight drop in blood pressure, dry mouth or drowsiness. More information is also readily available on the UK's NHS website, including the benefits too, so please do feel free to check if you have any concerns or just for information. We would also advise you to discuss with your doctor if you are either considering taking CBD or have any adverse side effects.

Cannabinoids and My body

Earlier, we touched on the fact that there are cannabinoids in our bodies that play a vital role in the endocannabinoid system within us all. We thought it might be interesting to share a bit more about this. Endocannabinoids, also called endogenous cannabinoids, are molecules made by your body. They’re similar to cannabinoids, but they are produced by your body. The endocannabinoid system is a complex biological system in the human body and was discovered in the 1990s. Much is still unknown about how it works and its interactions, however experts in the field know that it impacts several major processes, including appetite, sleep, mood, and memory. More and more is being discovered with continued research.

The endocannabinoid system has three components: receptors, enzymes, and endocannabinoids. These parts all function regardless of whether someone uses CBD or not. Endocannabinoids complement the body by keeping internal functions running smoothly. Receptors exist throughout the body and are a substance to which endocannabinoids bind.

CBD and its use has a direct similarity to a chemical called 2-AG (psst... ready for the mouthful version? Here is it: “2-arachidonoylglycerol”) and is an endocannabinoid which is already within us. It is for this reason that taking CBD is not alien to our bodies. Understanding the effects of CBD involves examining the relationship between the receptors and endocannabinoids. There are two types of receptors: CB1 and CB2. CB1 receptors are primarily in the central nervous system and are responsible for governing coordination, movement, pain, appetite, memory, mood, and other functions. The CB2 receptors are in the peripheral nervous system, influencing pain, and inflammation.

There is so much we could write about the endocannabinoid system but as with all things, we at Innaree strongly believe in empowering the individual to gain their own knowledge too. As they say, the richest wealth anyone can have is knowledge and wisdom. Hopefully in our own way, we have intrigued you enough about this topic for you to take the next step and research it more yourself... “Knowledge shared is knowledge gained”

How to create a routine for taking your CBD

With the hectic lives we all live and with all that is happening in the world, it's even more important now than ever that we remember to reap the benefits of CBD in our daily lives and are consistent with it. Some of the Innaree team have come up with simple and easy ideas to help themselves and we would like to share those ideas with you too. We would also love to hear of any ideas that you think of, which are not on our list, that you’ve implemented and works for you, so why not contact us with your ideas and we will add them to our website for others to benefit. We would love to learn from you too and for you to come with us on the Innaree journey, whichever way that may be.

Here are some of our ideas:

  1. That phone reminder - The easiest is to set a reminder on your phone for the best time(s) when you would normally take your CBD. Most of our customers prefer to take their CBD in the morning before they start work and also early evening after finishing work.
  2. The Bedside companion – One of our most serene and personal times is when we wake up. It also happens to be one of the best times to take CBD (myth has it that before bed at night is a good time, but unfortunately that isn't the case). So, keep your CBD next to your bedside and see if this works for you. We would recommend you make the taking of your CBD part of your morning routine.
  3. Post-it notes – Use a sticky note and stick it where it belongs!... right next to the office monitor, laptop, kitchen table, or maybe on the fridge door. What is the best place for you so that you remember?
  4. The Cuppa reminder – If you are a morning coffee or tea person, then how about placing your CBD nearby, that way you can remember to take your CBD whilst the kettle is on ready for that perfect brew.
  5. Mirror my CBD – Most people look into the mirror at least once during the day, especially in the morning. So, if you have a table or shelf next to your mirror, that could be one of the best places, or you could stick a reminder note on the corner of your mirror too.
  6. CBD is Key – Grabbing your car keys and about to head out? Then how about placing your CBD next to your car keys? That way, just before you head out, you can take that deserved moment just for yourself and unlock your day with your ‘CBD key’.
These are just some of the ideas that’s worked for us. Of course, each person is different but it’s good if you plan your CBD timeline and routine so that you get the most out of it. There is never a ‘bad’ time to take your CBD, you just have to find the routine and method that works for you.

Can I combine my CBD products?

With the Innaree CBD products, more than one product can be safely used at the same time as long as you keep within the recommended dose for the day. For example, you may wish to take our CBD Oil Drops at a similar time to applying the luscious CBD Body Butter after a morning shower or bath, or take the Oil Drops before/after applying the cooling Muscle Rub. Some people may wish to apply the Innaree CBD Lip Oil or Lip Balm in the morning after taking their CBD Oil Drops. Whatever the combination that works for you, just know that it’s ok to combine any of the Innaree products within the recommended dosage for the day.

How effective are the Innaree CBD products?

As you will have seen from our product range, at Innaree, not only do we provide high quality CBD Oil Drops, but we are also really proud of all of our other premium products. For example, the CBD topicals can have a really important place in everyone’s daily care regime, be it our CBD Body Butter in a subtle but distinct Cocoa and Orange fragrance or our cooling CBD Muscle Rub with the specially selected combination of essential oils of Eucalyptus, Clary Sage & Lavender, which we believe is effective in providing that cool soothing effect for those aching joints and muscles, or those who lead an active life.

With respect to all CBD topicals, it is of course natural to expect the bioavailability (i.e. the percentage of any chemical that is effectively available or used by the body) of CBD topicals to be lower than those of CBD Oil Drops. This is because whilst CBD Oil Drops are administered under the tongue where the drops are received directly by the receptors and blood vessels, CBD topicals on the other hand first have to be absorbed into the skin which can take up to 1 hour, leaving you with up to 5 additional hours for the effects of CBD to last thereafter. This also goes for our CBD Lip Balm and CBD Lip Oil, both of which are great for dry, flaky or chapped lips. So, in summary, if you are looking for direct and localised focus, then the CBD topicals certainly have a place in your life and are great at doing that job. They will still reach the receptors within the skin and get to give you the benefits that come with it. Furthermore, with the CBD topicals, you can use these any time of the day and night and as frequently as you wish.

Finally, we wouldn’t feel complete if we didn’t say a few words about our other special product, the Innaree signature Pillow Spray, which has been created from a special blend of CBD isolate and the essential oils of lavender and chamomile. We all know the relaxing effects of these essential oils, but now combined with the potential CBD benefits of reducing anxiety and increasing relaxation, you can literally be “rest assured”!
