HEMP (CBD) FAQ
CBD is a non-intoxicating part of the cannabis plant with enormous healing potential. Cannabidiol (CBD) was discovered in 1940 and is a naturally occurring phytocannabinoid found in the resinous flower of cannabis, a plant with a rich and a 3000 history as a medicine. Today the therapeutic properties of CBD are being tested and confirmed by scientists and doctors around the world. CBD is a safe, non-addictive substance, CBD is one of more than a hundred “phytocannabinoids,” which are unique to cannabis and give the plant its robust therapeutic profile.
CBD is therapeutically potent as well as non-intoxicating, and easy to take as an oil, making it an appealing supplement option for those who are looking for natural ways of addressing conditions such as: Autoimmune diseases, Neurological conditions, Metabolic syndromes, Neuropsychiatric illness and skin conditions.
Starting with the least processed,
Full Spectrum is the least processed Oil and contains all the naturally occurring terpenes, essential oils, and other cannabinoids from the plant
There is compelling evidence that CBD works best in combination with THC and the ‘full spectrum’ of other cannabis components found in raw unprocessed oil, this is known as the entourage effect - and is at the heart of Wild Azur product philosophy.
Wild Azur Hemp Oil is organic, raw and unprocessed, and sourced from plants with a naturally low THC level.
*Wild Azur Hemp Oil is less than 0.2%, below the UK legal limit.
Broad Spectrum: the oil is processed to remove THC (tetrahydrocannabinol).
That means it contains terpenes, essential oils, and other cannabinoids from the plant - apart from THC. THC is the molecule associated with the ‘high’ from marijuana and as this is misunderstood and laws change constantly, mainstream suppliers tend to offer broad spectrum.
CBD Isolate is processed to leave just the CBD molecule. This means that no terpenes, essential oils, and other cannabinoids from the plant are present.
Although you can achieve very high ‘CBD’ percentages, the efficacy falls - this is similar to isolated vitamins in vitamin tablets whereby you need very high vitamin levels because your body doesn’t absorb isolates very readily, compared to vitamins from fresh fruit (for example).
THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) was discovered in 1964. THC binds with the cannabinoid 1 (CB1) receptors in the brain and may produce a high or sense of euphoria.
Due to the potential psychoactive properties of THC there are differing and conflicting laws around the world. The legal oral limit in the UK is 0.2%.
(it is worth noting that CBD binds very weakly, if at all, to CB1 receptors. In fact, it can interfere with the binding of THC and dampen or negate the psychoactive effects.)
We use CO2 extraction to gently extract the broadest profile of beneficial cannabinoids and terpenes from the Hemp plant, allowing you to benefit from the entourage effect. It is an organic certified extraction method as the solvent is CO2 doesn't have the same dangers associated with ethanol alcohol and other nasty solvents.
It is a way to create a pure, clean, quality oil which involves little to no post-processing.
Another benefit of CO2 extraction is that running supercritical liquid CO2 through the hemp plant kills any microbial bacteria, insect mites, mould, or mildew on the plant. Therefore, CO2 extraction guarantees that your concentrates will not only be cleaner, but significantly healthier for your consumption.
5% is the active compound CBD = 500mg of active CBD. We used 400mg of raw extract and 100mg of isolate to boost the CBD %. Because of the THC level we have to boost with isolate, if we used more raw extract we would not be under the 0,2% THC limit and therefore illegal. This percentage is perfect for general use across a wide range of requirements and close to what nature provides.
Did you know that over 320 pesticides can routinely be used in non-organic farming. In organic farming, natural methods are relied upon to control pests and disease. These include well designed crop rotations, encouraging natural predators, and developing good soil and healthy crops which have natural resistance to pests and diseases.
We’re proud to say that Wild Azur Hemp oil comes from clean and nourished soils which help to maximise the many health benefits that stem from using CBD.
Your body naturally produces its own endocannabinoids to support this system, and just like with any other nutrient, if it is deficient then it may need a boost. The most basic way CBD works with our body is by blocking the breakdown of our own endocannabinoids, allowing our bodies to use more of what it’s already naturally producing.
The endocannabinoid system plays a crucial role in regulating a broad range of physiological processes that affect our everyday experience – our mood, our energy level, our intestinal fortitude, immune activity, blood pressure, bone density, glucose metabolism, how we experience pain, stress, hunger, and more.
By modulating the endocannabinoid system and enhancing endocannabinoid tone, CBD and THC can slow – or in some cases stop – disease progression. report
Hemp oil plays an important role in preventing ageing and maintaining a healthy balance of moisture. It alleviates problems with acne, abrasions, psoriasis and eczema. Interestingly, It is also the only vegetable oil that contains vitamin D, which is indispensable for the absorption of calcium. In addition to vitamin D, it also contains vitamin E and many vitamins of the B complex, which provides superior nutritional value to the skin, while slowing down its ageing and maintaining youthful vitality

"I can’t believe how amazing these little drops of magic are! I had heard that hemp oil promotes general well being and aids sleep so I tried them with interest two nights ago. Not only did I sleep well but to my surprise my sciatica pain that had been reducing me to tears for the past three months had eased to a mild niggle. I then continued to use the drops yesterday and today and unbelievably I am now completely without pain! I honestly cannot believe it and I am so grateful to Wild Azur for creating this product. I honestly think everyone needs to try it!
*** UPDATE - ten days later and I am still pain free. For anyone suffering from pain I can’t recommend this product enough." Rachel Westerlund

A biological system composed of endogenous cannabinoids and their corresponding endocannabinoid receptors (CB1 and CB2) which can be found in the mammalian brain, central and peripheral nervous system and the organs. Its main function is to maintain homeostasis (perfect balance), within the body. It is part of a command and control network – biochemical communication between the endocannabinoids produced by the human body and the receptors which are involved in certain processes such as memory, coordination, pleasure etc.

Better Sex: There are multiple advantages of using Hemp Oil, especially for women! Activation of the CB1 receptors, results in more available dopamine, which lets you be more ‘in the moment’ and, therefore, able to climax more easily- and apparently have a stronger and longer climax. While activating CB2 receptors can allow for a stronger message of touch to be sent to the brain!
