What is CBD oil?
CBD (cannabidiol) is an active substance found in hemp oil which is taken from the leaves and flowers of hemp.
It is legal as it has less than 0.2% of the psychoactive tetrahydrocannabinol in it.
The White Wolf Yoga website reads: “It’s 100% safe and legal in the UK.
“Our CBD oil comes from hemp flowers grown legally on farms in the European Union without the use of any pesticides, herbicides, artificial fertilisers or harmful chemicals.
“When used as a food supplement it can help boost health and wellbeing.”
