What is CBD?
Cannabidiol, commonly known as CBD, has a host of wellness properties. It’s found in a number of plants, but it’s most abundant in hemp and cannabis.
Did you say cannabis?
Yup, cannabis. CBD is one of its compounds, but not the one that gets you high – that’s THC. THC is currently illegal to sell or produce in the UK. CBD, on the other hand, can be purchased on the high street and is rapidly becoming a popular supplement.
What is CBD used for?
If you read the news, you’ll see that people say it helps them manage pain, anxiety, sleep issues, and a variety of daily stresses. There is not yet an exhaustive study of the effects of CBD in the UK. Regardless, it has become hugely popular as a food supplement as people tell their friends how it’s worked for them.
How are Mr. Moxey’s different?
The most common way to take CBD oil is via a tincture that is dropped under the tongue. That’s all a bit medicinal for us and it doesn’t taste very good. Good news: not only are our mints easier to consume, they make your breath minty too.
What varieties do the mints come in?
Our blend for the UK is designed to soothe and centre. The mints contain Indian gooseberry to support rejuvenation and echinacea to boost your immune system, and each mint has 5mg of CBD. Look out for new blends as we add to the range over the next few months.
Don’t you have any with THC?
No, THC is still illegal here in the UK. We’re actively engaged in trying to change that, though, as we believe legalisation has many benefits over prohibition.
In the US, we have a range of mints that have varying levels of CBD and THC. All of our THC-based mints focus on microdosing, which means that you could give one to your mum and be confident that she’d find it relaxing, but not overwhelming.
