INGREDIENTS IN OUR PREMIUM CBD OILS AND ORAL DROPS
At SMOKO CBD, we pride ourselves on using high quality CBD broad spectrum extract from organically grown hemp plants. We use a CBD rich cannabis plant called the Sativa L strain which is grown on sustainable and responsibly managed farms in central Oregon in the USA.
The CBD Oil production process includes the full cannabis plant and a unique cryogenic extraction process to remove all traces of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) to maintain a wide variety of the beneficial chemical compounds and cannabinoids as possible.
Our high quality CBD Oils and Oral Drops use a coconut-based (MCT) carrier oil, broad spectrum CBD extract and flavourings - simple and effective.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS ABOUT SMOKO CBD ORAL DROPS
Our bodies have a network called the Endocannabinoid system (ECS) which is a group of neurons and receptors that connect all of our organs, muscles, brain and other systems together - like a communication highway. Our bodies naturally produce cannabinoids that "feed" the ECS and help it to work. Due to the modern way of life and diet, our bodies may not be producing enough of these cannabinoids an like supplementing vitamins, many people choose to add CBD products to their diet to support our ECS.
The CBD and cannabinoids you get from CBD Oils and Oral Drops, CBD Gummies and other products, add the extra cannabinoids to your body and help your ECS to work efficiently.
Like so many of the food supplements and vitamins we take, as long as they are consumed in line with the recommended daily dosage, CBD is safe to use. As it is a natural grown product with no harmful chemicals added, it is like eating extra fruit and vegetables or taking a food supplement like Fish Oil. We always suggest you seek medical advice before starting to take any food supplement and to stop taking it if you begin to feel unwell.
As long as there is no THC (tetrahydrocannabinol - the psychoactive ingredient in marijuana that people smoke to get high), then CBD products are legal in the UK. At present, the FSA is developing a framework to provide safety guidelines for the safe consumption and responsible sale of CBD products. With all of SMOKO CBD products, there is ZERO THC content as it is a broad spectrum CBD oil that has all THC removed during the extraction process.
Unlike many other naturally occurring and man-made substances like sugar (yes sugar is addictive), cheese (I speak from the experience as a cheese addict), nicotine and opioids, CBD is not physically addictive. However, once you start using SMOKO CBD products, you may feel improvements from many ailments or conditions which will encourage you to keep using it! But this is a good thing!

The term Psychoactive relates to the properties of a compound to have an altering effect on the mind or state of mind. Generally the psychoactive properties of THC are connected to the cannabis plant. There are 2 main types of cannabis plant when comparing CBD to THC. The plant that contains higher levels of THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) is the Cannabis Indica and is grown for the purpose of achieving a "high" due to its psychoactive properties.
On the other hand, CBD is generally derived from the Cannabis Sativa plant which has minimal levels of THC but high levels of beneficial cannabinoids like CBD. With our broad spectrum CBD oil we use in our SMOKO CBD products like CBD Gummies, any trace amounts of THC are removed during the cryogenic extraction process. So SMOKO CBD is 100% THC FREE!
As CBD Oils and Oral drops are designed to be sublingually absorbed (absorbed under the tongue), they are absorbed into your blood stream quite rapidly. We recommend placing 2 to 3 drops of SMOKO CBD Oil under your tongue and hold it there for up to 30 seconds, allowing the CBD to be absorbed before swallowing. Many people find that doing this 3 times a day - morning, midday and evening - is a great and effective dose of CBD.
Whether you can travel with CBD depends on the airline you are travelling with and the country where you are travelling to. We would recommend you speak to your travel agency and your airline before you take your SMOKO CBD products with you.
Selecting the right type of CBD Oil and Oral Drops should be based on a number of factors. We are going to discuss a few of these factors below.
STRENGTH - depending on why you are looking to use CBD oils, the strength of the CBD oil (amount of CBD in MG) will be important. Lower strength CBD oils like 500mg CBD Oil would be more suitable for a beginner trying CBD for the 1st time. A medium strength CBD oil like 1000mg would be for someone who is using it more often throughout the day. A maximum potency CBD oil like the SMOKO 2000mg CBD Oral Drops are definitely for the more advanced user or someone who is looking for the maximum dose to aid in their health and wellbeing.
TYPE OF CBD OIL - there are 3 main types of CBD Oils on the market to choose from. Full Spectrum, Broad Spectrum or CBD Isolate. Full spectrum means the CBD oil is made from the entire CB plant and may contain THC which is not legal in certain levels in the UK. Broad spectrum (we think this is the best choice) still uses the entire cannabis sativa plant but has the THC removed during the extraction process. So you still get the benefits of having a wide range of cannabinoids, terpenes and fantastic fatty acids with a broad spectrum but no fear of having any THC in the oil. The final type of CBD oil is an isolate base. Isolate CBD Oil uses a carrier oil like palm or coconut plus a pure CBD powder (isolate). With isolate CBD, all impurities including many of the other beneficial terpenes, fatty acids and cannabinoids are removed completely.
With any product you eat, use or consume, you should be looking for a responsibly sourced, low levels of processing, high quality ingredients, great customer service and a brand with great reputation.

How much CBD Oil or Oral Drops you should take depends on weight, your sex, your metabolism, your diet and why you are taking CBD. So trying to improve world health with a one-size fits all approach wouldn't work. We would recommend anyone trying CBD Oils for the first time to start with a lower strength like a 500mg CBD oil. Start be trialling 1 to 3 drops in the morning and see how you feel. If you feel you need more, add another dose at midday and possibly another in the evening until you find the right dose of CBD for you.
Some people keep a diary so they can track what they are taking, what they are eating and how they feel, so they can start to see the patterns and combinations that make them feel better.
We would recommend taking this trial and error approach for at least a month until you find out the perfect dose of CBD that makes you feel as great as possible. You may also want to incorporate CBD Gummies or CBD Vape Pods to your regime as well.
The simple answer is no! Our broad spectrum CBD is derived from the cannabis sativa L strain (naturally low levels of THC) and then goes through a unique cryogenic extraction process to remove any trace amounts of THC that may be naturally occurring. The amount of THC you need to have any psychoactive effect from a product is upwards of 5% whereas SMOKO CBD products don't contain any trace of THC at all.
Rest assured, you will not get high from using SMOKO CBD.
