Can I take CBD while pregnant?

The FSA guidelines advise consumers not to take CBD when pregnant or breastfeeding.

I have allergies

The ingredients in our products vary from product to product, please read the label to ensure you’re not buying something that may cause a reaction. Some of our products do contain nut oil, we cannot guarantee the absence of cross-contamination of nut oil with our other products which may have been made at the same location.

I have ….. can you help?

We are not medically trained; we are not pharmaceutically trained, and we have no qualifications that allow us to offer you any medical advice.

We are experts in cannabis and will do what we can to help to promote people’s well-being. But all our knowledge is based on experience and from helping ourselves and our family.

Drug testing

Please be aware that some of our products do contain trace amounts of THC, which means they can test positive in a workplace or roadside drug test. 

It should be clear from a urine or blood test that there are high levels of CBD rather than THC, but this depends on the calibre of the testing equipment used.  If you believe this might in any way affect your ability to pass a drug test or jeopardise your employment, you should either talk to your employer about it or stop using the products. 

In the event that someone fails a drug test, CBD Brothers is not responsible.

Medicine interaction

The FSA have advised that consumers who take prescribed medication should not take CBD without discussing this with a medical practitioner.

Please allow 2 hours between taking pharmaceutical medication and our CBD products.

There is a forum on Facebook you could try and join, “Herbal Alternatives” which includes qualified medical herbalists and well-informed CBD users where the use of our products can be openly discussed.

Please do not take if pregnant or breastfeeding.

How much should I take?

It is difficult to give guidance because of how people interact with the extracts, so we typically advise that people start slowly and build up over time. 

Oil: Use two to three drops sublingually for ten to fourteen days, then add one more drop until you reach the right dosage for you.

Capsules: Start with a 50mg dose and increase if needed after 5 days.

Whole Plant Extract (Paste): We advise using one rice grain sized amount and rubbing it into your gums to allow the cannabinoids to be absorbed into the body.

Please allow 2 hours between taking pharmaceutical medication and our CBD products.
