Why is Organically Grown CBD superior?
You deserve pure, natural Organically Grown CBD without any health compromising toxins. Life Spark CBD is entirely free of contaminants, such as heavy metals, pesticides, insecticides, solvents, etc. Unfortunately, some CBD companies rely on toxic farming practices and processing – so buyer beware. Life Spark CBD offers Organically Grown CBD mixed with organic coconut MCT for optimal health benefits.
What does a carrier oil mean?
All CBD is mixed with other plant-based oils to make up the strength that best suits your health needs. Life Spark CBD uses the healthiest carrier oil on the market: Organic Coconut MCT. In the USA, MCT is the top recommended carrier oil by doctors due to its health-giving properties. Learn more about Life Spark CBD’s organic MCT below.
What is MCT and what does it do?
Life Spark’s MCT (Medium Chain Triglycerides) is organic, sustainably sourced and cruelty free. It is sourced solely from coconuts and is primarily made up of C8 and C10, not C12. C8 and C10 are the healthiest medium-chain triglycerides, versus longer-chain C12, because they are more rapidly broken down and absorbed into the body.
Life Spark’s MCT is a ‘natural fuel’ for the body and brain and has some serious science to back it up. It is classified as a food supplement and often used to support sports performance, clear thinking, weight management and important bodily functions for general health. Life Spark uses Organic MCT in its Oils, Soft Gels and Body Salve.
Why is GMO Free important?
Life Spark CBD is GMO free. GMO is a ‘genetically modified organism’, meaning a plant whose genetic makeup has been modified in a laboratory using genetic engineering or transgenic technology. Life Spark CBD is strictly free from all GMOs and offers only healthy natural products.
Are CBD Isolates dangerous?
Isolates of the CBD molecule are not permitted in the EU. Isolates are chemically altered from their natural state, to the extent that its effect on the body is unknown. That said, given an unregulated CBD industry, isolates remain commonly found in many CBD products in the market. The alternative? High Quality, Broad Spectrum CBD with the advantage of many different cannabinoids, terpenes, flavonoids and phytonutrients – in short: Life Spark CBD.
Where can I safely buy CBD?
Unfortunately, the CBD industry is NOT currently regulated or standardised. The result is that the quality and potency of available CBD products on the market varies significantly and labelling can be deceiving. The lack of regulation can make it difficult for consumers to know who and what to trust. Check out our “Safe Purchasing Tips” below.
Life Spark CBD is a full member of the Cannabis Trade Association who are leading the way in standardisation in the UK and our CBD partner is spearheading standardisation in the USA.
* How do I safely buy CBD?
We have three Safe Buying Tips to help you navigate your purchase of a good quality CBD product.
Safe Purchase Tip #1:
Always pay careful attention to product labelling and marketing details. – Read the fine print!
Perhaps the most concerning of our findings is evidence of the immense variation in the quality and strength of available CBD. Furthermore, it can be all too easy to invest in a product that does not provide what is suggested in its misleading advertising.
Fortunately, our research led us to identify a product that ticks all the boxes for strength, safety and reliability. Life Spark CBD is a pure, organically grown product of the highest quality sourced from the Global CBD Leader and our USA partner.
Safe Purchase Tip #2:
Buy ‘mg of CBD per ml’, NOT percentage %.
This refers to the amount of active CBD available in a specific volume of oil. For example: 500 mg CBD in 30 ml. The ‘mg’ listed on the bottle ideally corresponds to the active CBD in that product. However, with some products, the “mg” of the CBD refers to hemp oil rather than CBD. This involves a marked reduction in the potency of the product.
To illustrate with a recent example: A customer purchased what she believed to be a concentration of 2,000 mg of CBD. In reality, it was ‘2,000 mg CBD oil from whole plant extract’, (not actual CBD). In essence: A high price was paid for relatively little CBD.
Safe Purchase Tip #3:
3rd Party Lab Results? If not, move on…seriously!
CBD claims are loosely regulated. Reputable CBD retailers should always post third party lab test results for potency, pesticides, residual solvents, metals and mycotoxins in the CBD hemp oil. If lab results are not provided, it should automatically be a red flag. The proof is in the Lab Results.
How best to store my Life Spark CBD products and how long does CBD last?
Store your CBD at room temperature and away from direct sunlight. CBD has an 18 month shelf life.
Where can CBD be shipped and for how much?
Life Spark CBD can be shipped to the whole of the EU except Norway and Iceland. Within the UK, we ship first class mail for £4 (Postage is FREE with purchases over £50).
Can I travel with CBD?
We suggest caution when traveling with CBD. Even though it is completely legal in many countries, there are still some countries where this is not so. Most places you travel, cannabis and THC are illegal and CBD could be confused with these. Familiarise yourself with the laws and associated risks of various countries.
