Is CBD Vegan?

Is CBD Vegan?

What is CBD?

CBD is a compound that naturally occurs in hemp and cannabis plants. These plants naturally produce CBD along with many other components such as vitamins, minerals, and even THC.

CBD has recently been legalised in the UK, after a long discussion about whether or not it should be legalised, since, in order to make it, cannabis plants need to be grown and harvested, and this posed a problem since cannabis plants have been outlawed in the UK for a very long time due to its psychoactive effects which are attributed to THC.

But as of November 1st, 2018, CBD is now in stores on the High Street market in the UK, and it can now be freely consumed and used, as long as it contains less than 0.02% THC.

Now, CBD comes in many different forms, such as tablets, capsules, oils, ointments, cosmetic items, lotions, vape liquid, and many more. But if you are following a specific diet, such as a vegan diet, you will most likely want to know…

Does that mean CBD is Vegan?

CBD Plant

To put it shortly, yes. CBD is vegan! Thanks to its plant origin, CBD is naturally 100% vegan, and many of the high quality and repeatable brands on our site also source their CBD from ethically grown hemp and cannabis plants that are free from pesticides, herbicides, and heavy metals. Therefore, not only are they vegan, but they are also organic.

But, despite CBD being naturally vegan, it's important to consider that, since CBD can be presented in many different forms, some of which I mentioned above, it is still important to keep an eye on any additional ingredients that might come in your CBD product, since there is a possibility that these may not be vegan.

For example, a lot of edible products like CBD Gummies, Capsules and Chocolates may contain gelatin or dairy, so it is important to read the label and make sure they are vegan-friendly.

Though there are many CBD products which may not be vegan, there are also many CBD products which are vegan, and you will definitely find many different products that you like from the wide selection and variety that is available to you.

CBD Oil is one of the best Cannabidiol (CBD) products for a vegan diet because they are usually made with hemp seed or coconut oil which are rich in omega 3 and 6. A full spectrum CBD Oil in a hemp seed oil will be ideal because hemp contains an ideal ratio of omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids.

If you are interested in trying Cannabidiol Cosmetics and Creams it is also important to look for ingredients that are also vegan-friendly. Many of these products will advertise their vegan status as well.

So, though it may take a little more time, I highly recommend looking into the products that you were going to buy, and making 100% sure that these products do not contain any animal derived ingredients, and that they are 100% vegan.
