What is CBD?

CBD, short for cannabidiol, is a chemical compound from the cannabis plant. It’s a naturally occurring substance that’s used in products like oils and edibles to impart a feeling of relaxation, recovery and calm. Unlike its tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), it’s not psychoactive. It is important to note that Vivre CBD products are 0% THC meaning that it will NOT get you high.


What is the difference between CBD and Hemp?

Hemp and CBD come from different parts of the Cannabis plant. Hemp oil comes mainly from the seeds and contains very low amounts of CBD meaning that you’d have to consume greater amounts of it. CBD is made from the flowers of the cannabis plant but contains significantly more cannabinoids with less than 0.2%THC.

Where is Vivre CBD sourced from?

The CBD we use in our products is only sourced from a single supplier in Colorado (US). We have spent an agonising amount of time ensuring we only use the finest supplier and manufacturing practices to deliver a truly premium product to every single one of our customers.

Broad Spectrum, Full Spectrum, Isolate – What is the difference?

CBD isolate is 99% CBD with all plant matter removed. Full spectrum CBD contains all terpenes, flavonoids and fatty acids found in hemp which have a therapeutic effect of their own. Broad spectrum CBD is full spectrum CBD without any THC so you get the best of both worlds.

Vivre CBD products are broad spectrum for individuals that want all the benefits of CBD but without the risk of THC in their system.

How do I use CBD?

CBD uses and applications have exploded recently with CBD being found in everything from bottle water, beauty masks and even pet food. It is no surprise then that knowing what/how to take CBD is incredibly confusing.

The most popular forms of CBD are in oil drops, oil for vaping and topicals (creams, gels balms).  Vivre CBD oils are not intended to be used with a vaporiser.

How to take Vivre oil drops – Take roughly a pipette’s worth of oil and hold under your tongue for approximately 60 seconds then swallow. This allows the mucus membranes in the mouth absorb the oils active ingredients.

How to take Vivre Sports Balm – Simply massage a liberal amount (minimum £1 coin size) into the affected area 2-3 times a day. If the area is large in size then feel free to add more as necessary, total coverage is the aim. 

Vivre Muscle balm can be used pre and post workout

What do the CBD percentages mean?
