What is CBD?
Cannabidiol (CBD) is a non-psychoactive cannabinoid found in the (industrial) hemp used in our products. It is derived from the Cannabis Sativa plant know more commonly as the Cannabis plant. CBD is a major phytocannabinoid, accounting for up to 40% of the plant’s extract. CBD does not have any psychoactive effects such as those caused by tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). Our product is 100% legal for sale and consumption in the UK.
How does CBD work?
The human body has an endocannabinoid system (ECS) that receives and translates signals it receives from cannabinoids in the body. The body produces some cannabinoids on its own, which are called endocannabinoids. The ECS helps regulate functions such as sleep, immune-system responses, and pain. THC produces a ‘high’ feeling by affecting the brain’s endocannabinoid receptors. This activates the brain’s reward system, producing pleasure chemicals such as dopamine. CBD is an entirely different compound, and its effects are very complex. It is not psychoactive, meaning it does not produce a ‘high’ or change a person’s state of mind. Instead, it influences the body to use its own endocannabinoids more effectively.
Is CBD legal?
Yes. CBD oil does not produce a high, Hashtag Organics as a company follow the National Pharmacy Association (NPA) policy, this means that we provide certificates of analysis that show 0% THC in all products.
What is Cannabis?
Cannabis is a genus of flowering plants in the family Cannabaceae. The number of species within the genus is disputed. Three species may be recognised: Cannabis sativa, Cannabis indica, and Cannabis ruderalis; Cannabis ruderalis may be included within Cannabis sativa; all three may be treated as subspecies of a single species, Cannabis sativa; or Cannabis. sativa may be accepted as a single undivided species. The genus is widely accepted as being indigenous to and originating from Central Asia, with some researchers also including upper South Asia in its origin.
The plant is also known as hemp, although this term is often used to refer only to varieties of Cannabis cultivated for non-drug use. Cannabis has long been used for hemp fibre, hemp seeds and their oils, hemp leaves for use as vegetables and as juice.
What is THC?
Tetrahydrocannabinol, (THC) is the principal psychoactive constituent of cannabis. It is removed from all Hashtag Organic Ltd products before distribution and sale.
Homeostasis can be defined as the stable state of an organism and of its internal environment, as the maintenance or regulation of the stable condition, or its equilibrium, or simply as the balance of bodily functions. The stable condition is the condition of optimal functioning for the organism, and is dependent on many variables, such as body temperature and fluid balance, being kept within certain pre-set limits.
Endocannabinoid system (ECS)
The endocannabinoid system (ECS) is a biological system composed of endocannabinoids, which bind to cannabinoid receptors, and cannabinoid receptor proteins that are expressed throughout the mammalian central nervous system (including the brain) and peripheral nervous system. The endocannabinoid system is involved in regulating a variety of physiological and cognitive processes including fertility, pregnancy, during pre-and postnatal development, appetite, pain-sensation, mood, and memory, and in mediating the pharmacological effects of cannabis. The ECS is also involved in mediating some of the physiological and cognitive effects of voluntary physical exercise in humans and other animals, such as contributing to exercise-induced euphoria as well as modulating locomotor activity and motivational salience for rewards.

How does CBD work on the skin?
Activation of cannabinoid receptors by on epidermal cells regulates normal function of the skin as a barrier. CB1 and CB2 receptors make up the Endocannabinoid system. When CB1 or CB2 receptors are engaged, the functions of epidermal cells are modified which is an important process for the healthy physical defence of the body. Endocannabinoids also suppress inflammation and regulate sebum production in the epidermis. CBD offers a three-pronged skincare approach – it’s anti-ageing, anti-oxidant and anti-inflammatory.
What does ‘denatured’ mean?

What are Adaptogens?
Adaptogens are nontoxic herbs that have a normalizing and balancing effect on the body and promote homeostasis. Adaptogens may also protect the body from the toxic effects of stress.
What is Bioactivity?
Bioactivity is a specified reaction that happens when the compound reaches its intended target.
