Organic Hemp CBD OIL


High Strength Herbal Hemp CBD as a Supplement for General Health Support

Here in the UK and in many other countries around the world Hemp CBD oil is classified as a dietary food supplement.

Our products originate from a licensed farm from organic European industrial hemp plants. Our hemp is extracted by a super critical CO2 process of the whole plant and is put through regular testing to achieve the highest potency and purity.
Because quality matters, Herbactive make plants work.

These include: Vitamins, Glycosides, Flavanoids, Alkanes, Aldehydes, Nitrogenous compounds, Amino acids, Oils, Alcohols, Ketones, Sugars, Pigments, Water.


Hi Alan, First week of taking your 5% CBD Oil is showing good signs. Hoping this is the missing link for me. Karen. London.


What Is CBD? 
CBD is an extract from a whole herb plant and is part of the huge range of herbal medicines available at Herbactive Health Clinic. Cannabidiol (CBD) is a fatty acid that comes from the hemp plant. CBD oil is a mixture of various natural substances as they are derived from hemp. Hemp (also known as agricultural hemp, industrial hemp) is cultivated for use as rope, paper, textiles, clothing, biodegradable plastics, construction (e.g. Hempcrete and insulation), bio-fuel, cosmetics, oil, health food. This hybrid grows up to 15 feet (5m) high with a bamboo-like stem and looks completely different to the marijuana plant which is only 5 feet (1.7m) in height and bushy. They both come from the Cannabis sativa L. plant, but the hemp hybrid Herbactive uses has just a trace of the psychoactive constituent (THC) found in the marijuana plant. It is specifically cultivated for its very high CBD content.
The production of hemp oil involves extracting the fatty acids from the hemp plant. Cannabinoids are fat-soluble so they come out of the plant via oil extraction. As hemp is naturally high in CBD and contains only traces of THC (the chemical that give the high), the hemp oil produced from it is safe and non-psychotropic. Herbactive has sourced a high CBD hemp oil from a breed that has been developed over many years and is cultivated with licensed EU farmers. Our CBD oils and products do not have any psychoactive effects and are used entirely for general health purposes under UK law. Cannabidiol (CBD) is one of at least 112 active cannabinoids identified in cannabis. CBD is considered to have a wide scope of potential medical applications with no side effects.

It is also notable that humans make certain cannabinoids in our bodies which are activated to counteract pain and also to restore health during illness.

Constituents in Hemp Oil 
Hemp contains well over a hundred different phytocannabinoids, most notably cannabidiol (CBD), CBC, CBG, CBN, trace (legal) amounts of THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) and probably others yet to be identified. In addition to the phytocannabinoids present in our whole hemp plant extracts, there are also many other types of natural molecules and phytochemical compounds such as amino acids, carbohydrates, vitamins (including B1, B2, B6, D, & E), fatty acids (including omega 3 & 6), trace minerals (including iron, zinc, calcium, magnesium, & potassium), carotene, chlorophyll, flavonoids, ketones, nitrogenous compounds, alkanes, alcohols, glycosides, pigments, hemp seed oil, water, and terpenes. The most common terpenes in our CBD oils are myrcene, beta-caryophyllene, terpinolene, linalool, alpha-Pinene, beta-pinene, nerolidol or phytol, trans-alpha-bergamotene, limonene/beta-phellandrene (co-elution), alpha-humulene, (E)-beta-farnesene, and delta-3-Carene.

Oxford University Research Programme
Oxford University has announced a new £10m research programme into the medical uses of the cannabinoids in cannabis. Scientists will explore the potential benefits of the compounds in cannabis in an attempt to create new treatments for conditions including pain, cancer and inflammatory diseases. Zameel Cader, associate professor in clinical neurosciences, said the use of cannabis compounds was an "area of huge untapped potential". Dr Cader said the research would focus on an area of the brain known as the endocannabinoid system which plays a role in mood, memory and the sensation of pain. The endocannabinoid system is complex and "impacts on many aspects of brain function and the way that synapses operate", said Dr Cader. "It's also really important in the way the immune response is governed. We know that it's particularly important for many neurological disorders."
"The research programme will develop results into innovative therapies designed to help improve the quality of life of millions of patients," said the University spokesman. Researchers "will seek to identify cutting edge medical therapies through research into the molecular, cellular and systems mechanisms of cannabinoids," it said. It will include study of Alzheimer's, Parkinson's, migraine, auism and epilepsy.
"There are at least 50, maybe 80, different cannabinoids, most of which we don't know what their actions are," Dr Cader said.

Hi Alan, I'm in my late 40s and I have always jogged almost every day. I can jog for long distances. But recently my recovery time has been slower; my joints and muscles ache as I've never known. And for some reason my sleep has been affected. I read about your CBD Oil on your website. So I decided to try your 3% CBD oil. I took just 3-5 drops a day. Within a week I was feeling better and sleeping better. My recovery is much quicker and I don't get joint and muscle ache like I used to. Thanks for that and I will continue on this low dose because it seems to do me a lot of good! Jim. Christchurch, Dorset.


What is CBD used for? 
The National Cancer Institute (USA) website states: The potential benefits of medicinal Cannabis for people living with cancer include antiemetic effects, appetite stimulation, pain relief, and improved sleep…for symptom management.

It is said to be neuroprotectant, an antioxidant, an analgesic (pain relief), an anxiolytic (anxiety, stress, panic), and early research suggests it may stop tumours from spreading.

One science paper (Journal of Cancer Research 2004:08:15) says that cannabinoids could stop the action of VEGF (Vascular Endothelial Growth Factor) which is used by cancer tumours to stimulate blood vessel growth to spread. There is a huge body of research that claims that cannabinoids may cause antitumour effects by induction of cell death, inhibition of cancer cell growth, and inhibition of tumour angiogenesis and metastasis, and that they appear to kill tumour cells but do not affect surrounding healthy cells.
NB Herbactive does not prescribe CBD Oil to treat any cancer. CBD Oil may only be used as a health supplement as a preventative against the development of cancers. Alan Hopking, herbal practitioner, cannot advise anyone about the treatment of cancer. His advice is for maintenance of health to avoid illnesses and serious disease. We prescribe this herbal medicine as a preventative only.


For the last 6 weeks I've been giving 5 drops of your CBD Oil to my husband who suffered a stroke which affected his speech. I'm really amazed that he is speaking better, more clearly and using longer sentences recently. This change is very noticeable to me. I'm really pleased of course and thank you for all your advice and directions of the use of this remarkable oil about which we have all heard so much over the years. M.J. Dorset.


Research also showed that CBD acted by blocking a gene responsible for metastases (the Id-1 gene) which causes aggressive movement of abnormal cells away from a tumour site. This was shown in trials with both brain tumours and breast tumours.

In summary, research shows that CBD is indicated for: Pain relief. Nausea. Seizures. Anxiety, stress, worry. Depression. Muscle relaxant. Antimicrobial. Antibacterial. Protects the nervous system. Anti-diabetic (improves the action of the pancreas on insulin). Improves blood circulation (enhances wound healing; reduces cold hands & feet). Improves psoriasis and other skin diseases. Relieves Crohn’s disease, diverticulitis, and IBS. Anti-inflammatory. Bone stimulant (helps osteoporosis and painful bones). Arthritis. Antioxidant.

The cannabinoids are also known as neuroprotectants, for example in limiting neurological damage following ischemic events, such as stroke and trauma, or in the treatment of neurodegenerative diseases, such as MS, Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s disease and HIV dementia.

In a study published in the journal Nature Medicine investigating the brain systems involved in the ageing process led by Andras Bilkei-Gorzo from the University of Bonn, Germany, to show that the brain's endocannabinoid system, which affects mood memory and sensations such as pain, and which actively declines with age, "can restore signalling to a normal level" and "restore the cognitive ability of the old" when given a low dose of a compound of CBD/THC oil, and improves learning and memory. This system did not respond as well when not give the compound. Michael Bloomfield from University College London, said the "well conducted" study was "exciting" as it "opens up a whole new chemical system called the endocannabinoid system, as a potential target for new avenues of research which could include illnesses like dementia."


Hello Alan. I started using your 20% CBD oil just over 6 months ago for a brain tumour. I also used your Skullcap tincture to help the pain. I refused surgery and chemo - I am too old for that and it went against my instincts. I have just had extensive brain scans from different angles to assess the progress of the tumour. They couldn't find it!! The consultant had to admit that it had disappeared and that he couldn't understand it. Obviously I was astounded and overjoyed. I will continue with your treatment of course. Thank you for all your help. Name withheld. UK


How is CBD Hemp Oil made? 
A lot of plant material and many steps are required to produce a comparatively very small amount of CBD oil. Herbactive uses a specifically developed organic hemp hybrid that has taken many years of dedicated cultivation to get it to this point where it has been licensed for agricultural cultivation and harvest for medicinal application. The extraction process is done with purity in mind and for the maximising of the CBDs in the oil, which is then extensively tested to ensure its quality.

How is CBD oil used?
Internal: The dose is usually 2-10 drops under the tongue 1-2 times daily (max daily dose 20 drops).
External: CBD oil as a cream or lotion can be applied to the area of the pain e.g. joints, spine, muscles, tendons, etc. or applied to skin complaints e.g. psoriasis, dermatitis, wounds, acne, allergy rash, bites.

The Medicines and Healthcare Products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) has recently acknowledged that there are significant health benefits associated with CBD. However, as a result they have come to the opinion that products containing Cannabidiol (CBD) may require a product license to sell in the UK, if recommended for medical purposes. Herbactive, however, makes no such medical claims. Our CBD Oil is not sold as a medicine. Herbactive Organic CBD Hemp Oil product is a food supplement with the oil containing naturally occurring cannabinoids and many other naturally occuring constituents found in the fresh plant (i.e. our CBD Oil is not an isolated or standardised extract of cannabinoids alone, created by hi-tech chemical extraction or manufacture). Herbactive Hemp CBD Oil is extracted from the whole hemp plant and our products help maintain a person’s wellbeing by supporting the body’s natural endocannabinoid system.
We are committed to providing quality products to support people leading healthy lives. Herbactive was founded by Alan Hopking who is a passionate believer in natural health from herbs and organic foods and supplements.

General advice to consumers on the use of herbal remedies from the Medicines Healthcare products Regulatory Agency

From the website of the Medicines Healthcare products Regulatory Agency ( Department of Health, UK

• Remember that herbal remedies are medicines. As with any other medicine they are likely to have an effect on the body and should be used with care. • Herbal remedies may sometimes interact with other medicines. This makes it particularly important to tell your doctor or pharmacist if you are taking a herbal remedy with other medicines such as prescribed medicines (those provided through your doctor or dentist). • Treat with caution any suggestion that a herbal remedy is '100% safe' or is 'safe because it is natural'. Many plants, trees, fungi and algae can be poisonous to humans. It is worth remembering that many pharmaceuticals have been developed or derived from these sources because of the powerful compounds they contain. Any medicine, including herbal remedies, which have an effect on the body should be used with care. • Treat with caution any herbalist or other person who supplies herbal remedies if they are unwilling or unable to provide written information, in English, listing the ingredients of the herbal remedy they are providing. • If you are due to have a surgical operation you should always remember to tell your doctor about any herbal remedy that you are taking. • Anyone who has previously experienced any liver complaint, or any other serious health complaint is advised not to take any herbal remedy without speaking to their doctor first.


Pregnant/Breast-feeding mothers

Few conventional medicines have been established as safe to take during pregnancy and it is generally recognised that no medicine should be taken unless the benefit to the mother outweighs any possible risk to the foetus. This rule should also be applied to herbal medicinal products. However, herbal products are often promoted to the public as being “natural” and completely “safe” alternatives to conventional medicines. Some herbal ingredients that specifically should be avoided or used with caution during pregnancy. As with conventional medicines, no herbal products should be taken during pregnancy unless the benefit outweighs the potential risk.

Volatile Oils

Many herbs are traditionally reputed to be abortifacient and for some this reputation can be attributed to their volatile oil component.(6) A number of volatile oils are irritant to the genito-urinary tract if ingested and may induce uterine contractions. Herbs that contain irritant volatile oils include ground ivy, juniper, parsley, pennyroyal, sage, tansy and yarrow. Some of these oils contain the terpenoid constituent, thujone, which is known to be abortifacient. Pennyroyal oil also contains the hepatotoxic terpenoid constituent, pulegone. A case of liver failure in a woman who ingested pennyroyal oil as an abortifacient has been documented.


A stimulant or spasmolytic action on uterine muscle has been documented for some herbal ingredients including blue cohosh, burdock, fenugreek, golden seal, hawthorn, jamaica dogwood, motherwort, nettle, raspberry, and vervain. Herbal Teas Increased awareness of the harmful effects associated with excessive tea and coffee consumption has prompted many individuals to switch to herbal teas. Whilst some herbal teas may offer pleasant alternatives to tea and coffee, some contain pharmacologically active herbal ingredients, which may have unpredictable effects depending on the quantity of tea consumed and strength of the brew. Some herbal teas contain laxative herbal ingredients such as senna, frangula, and cascara. In general stimulant laxative preparations are not recommended during pregnancy and the use of unstandardised laxative preparations is particularly unsuitable. A case of hepatotoxicity in a newborn baby has been documented in which the mother consumed a herbal tea during pregnancy as an expectorant. Following analysis the herbal tea was reported to contain pyrrolizidine alkaloids which are known to be hepatotoxic.

Breast-feeding mothers

A drug substance taken by a breast-feeding mother presents a hazard if it is transferred to the breast milk in pharmacologically or toxicologically significant amounts. Limited information is available regarding the safety of conventional medicines taken during breast-feeding. Much less information exists for herbal ingredients, and generally the use of herbal remedies is not recommended during lactation.

Paediatric Use

Herbal remedies have traditionally been used to treat both adults and children. Herbal remedies may offer a milder alternative to some conventional medicines, although the suitability of a herbal remedy needs to be considered with respect to quality, safety and efficacy. Herbal remedies should be used with caution in children and medical advice should be sought if in doubt. Chamomile is a popular remedy used to treat teething pains in babies. However, chamomile is known to contain allergenic sesquiterpene lactones and should therefore be used with caution. The administration of herbal teas to children needs to be considered carefully and professional advice may be needed.

Perioperative use

The need for patients to discontinue herbal medicinal products prior to surgery has recently been proposed. The authors considered eight commonly used herbal medicinal products (echinacea, ephedra, garlic, ginkgo, ginseng, kava, St John’s Wort, valerian). On the evidence available they concluded that the potential existed for direct pharmacological effects, pharmacodynamic interactions and pharmacokinetic interactions. The need for physicians to have a clear understanding of the herbal medicinal products being used by patients and to take a detailed history was highlighted. The American Society of Anaesthesiologists (ASA) has advised patients to tell their doctor if they are taking herbal products before surgery and has reported that a number of anaesthesiologists have reported significant changes in heart rate or blood pressure in some patients who have been taking herbal medicinal products including St John’s Wort, ginkgo and ginseng. MCA is currently investigating a serious adverse reaction associated with the use of ginkgo prior to surgery. In this case, the patient who was undergoing hip replacement experienced uncontrolled bleeding thought to be related to the use of ginkgo.
