FAQs

General

What is CBD?

Open tab

• CBD is short for cannabidiol and is abundant in the hemp plant
• CBD is non-psychoactive and non-addictive
• CBD utilised in the body by the Endocannabinoid System (ECS)

What is the difference between CBD and THC?

Open tab

• Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) is a controlled substance and is associated with the psychoactive effects of getting high.
• Cannabidiol or CBD is not a controlled substance and is not psychoactive and doesn’t get you high

Where does hemp come from?

Open tab

Hemp, or industrial hemp, is a type of Cannabis sativa plant that’s grown specifically for its seeds, which we create products from. It’s one of the fastest growing plants and was one of the first plants to be spun into usable fibre 10,000 years ago. Each part of the hemp plant part can be refined into a variety of commercial items including paper, textiles, clothing, biodegradable plastics, paint, insulation, biofuel, food and animal feed.

How is our hemp CBD produced?

Open tab

We use the Whole-hemp plant seed to create our range of products. Nothing added, nothing taken away. And we never use a carrier oil. Instead we use a traditional cold-pressing technique, so each Celtic Wind  product consists of 100% Whole-hemp plant seed Oil with an abundance of whole plant nutrients.

What makes our product different?

Open tab

A lot of other CBD products extract just the CBD from the hemp plant and place it in a carrier Oil. However, we use a traditional cold pressing technique with nothing added or taken away. It means our unique product range of Oils, capsules and powders and more contains not only CBD, but over 150 compounds found naturally in the hemp plant, including CBD, CBDA, CBG, CBGA, CBC, - polyphenols, Omegas 6 and 9, terpenes, flavonoids, amino acids.

What carrier oil is used?

Open tab

We never extract our CBD and put it in a carrier Oil. Instead we use a traditional cold-pressing technique, so 100% Whole-hemp plant seed oil and the abundance of whole plant nutrients makes it into every Oil, capsule and powder. It’s how we retain the properties and complexity of this ancient grain.

Are there any scientific studies or evidence?

Open tab

The hemp plant and cannabidiol have been extensively researched by scientists and new studies are being carried out regularly. We recommend you conduct your own research into the studies that have been carried out.

Testing

Is CBD legal?

Open tab

All our products are legal and can be sold by us and bought by you in Ireland, the UK, the US and the EU. They’re also fully compliant with the EU Food Supplements Directive 2002/46/EC and Regulation 1169/2011/EU on the Provision of Food Information to Consumers. Our CBD products for pets are manufactured under license from the Department of Agriculture in Ireland.

How do I know its safe?

Open tab

We’re committed to independently testing and analysing our products and following stringent production standards. Our food supplement products are notified to the Food Safety Authority of Ireland (FSAI) and we’re also registered as a Food Business Operator with the Health Service Executive (HSE), so we’re regularly inspected by Environmental Health officers who confirm we meet food safety standards.

How do I know it won’t get me high?

Open tab

We’re licensed to grow EU-certified industrial food hemp crop that contains less than 0.2% Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC – the stuff that gets you high). Our products are also extensively and independently tested, and no psychoactive  has been detected in any of our products. So no, don’t worry, they won’t get you high.

Our testing procedure?

Open tab

We’re committed to independently testing and analysing our products and following stringent production standards. Our products are routinely tested to an ISO17025 international standard for testing cannabinoids and terpenes and are independently verified by laboratories in Ireland and the US.

One of the techniques the laboratories use for testing is leading the field in CBD analysis and is called Solid Phase Micro Extraction (SPME). It enables full-spectrum analysis of compounds found naturally occurring in hemp, which includes CBD levels. We also test for microbial content to make sure our products are completely safe.

How do you ensure consistency?

Open tab

You can feel confident knowing we manage and control our entire supply chain and have robust critical control points from ‘seed to shelf’ as well as a batch code on each and every bottle. It means we can fully trace every bottle we sell back to the very same field that the hemp plant was grown in. 

Recommended use

Why should I take your product?

Open tab

Many people use our multi-complex CBD as a food supplement as it contains an abundance of naturally occurring plant compounds as opposed to other CBD products which extract just CBD and put it in a carrier oil. Our products include 150 compounds found naturally in the hemp plant including CBD, CBDA, CBG, CBGA, CBC, terpenes, Omegas 6 and 9, flavonoids and amino acids..

Are your products suitable for coeliacs, vegetarians and vegans?

Open tab

Yes, all our multi-complex CBD products are 100% gluten-free and are suitable for vegetarians and vegans.

Can I take CBD products with my other medication?

Open tab

We recommend you consult your GP first if you’re on medication before taking any food supplement. 

Can it be used when pregnant, breast-feeding, and is it suitable for young children?

Open tab

We always recommend you seek your Health Practitioner’s advice. 

Can I use it for small animals?

Open tab

It is thought that CBD works in much the same way for humans as animals as they have an Endocannabinoid System just like we do. That’s why we have a dedicated Pet Care range with a selection of CBD products for our furry friends.

Does it show-up in drugs tests?

Open tab

No, it will not.  There is no detectable amount of the banned-substance THC (or THCA, THCV, CBN) in our products. 

Can I get addicted?

Open tab

No, our hemp products are not addictive because there’s no THC that can potentially be addictive or habit-forming.

Are there any side effects?

Open tab

No adverse side-effects have been reported, since the products have been on the market from 2015. 

Product

What is recommended dose?

Open tab

The recommended dose varies depending on the CBD product you’re buying. You’ll find more information on the specific product pages. As an example, the recommended dose for our 5% CBD Oil is one full dropper per day. 

What dosage is right for me?

Open tab

 The recommended dose for our 5% CBD Oil is one to four droppers per day. We recommend that consumers begin with one dropper and this may always be increased if desired.

When should I take it?

Open tab

We suggest taking it daily, at any time of the day. What time of day you take it is entirely a personal preference. It can be taken before or after food. 

How should I take oils?

Open tab

We recommend using the dropper to take the oil orally and hold it there for 50-60 seconds for best results.

What does it taste like?

Open tab

Whole-hemp plant seed oil is a grassy green colour and tastes ‘nutty’ like sunflowers seeds. We often hear it described as “earthy.” 

Taking care of your product

How should it be stored?

Open tab

In a cool, dark place, away from direct sunlight and out of the reach of children.

Why is the oil not clear?

Open tab

Our products are made from 100% Whole-hemp plant seed oil, using a cold-pressing technique so nothing is added or taken away. The grassy-green colour is the natural colour of hemp oil.

Should I shake before use?

Open tab

Yes, because the oil is a natural product and it will begin to settle when stood. Therefore, it’s always best to give the bottle a good shake before each use.

What should I do with a clogged pipette?

Open tab

Run the dropper under warm water and squeeze the dropper several times to clear it.
