Do You Have a CBD Deficiency?

As the world wakes up to the benefits of consuming hemp and CBD, many seem to think that it is a new occurrence. However, just over 100 years ago hemp played a huge role in our ancestor’s day to day lives.

Why is Supplementing With CBD Important?

What many have forgotten is that up until the non-evidenced cannabis prohibition in the 20th century, hemp was a part of our daily diet, was used for fibre and also for its medicinal properties. It was one of the most common agricultural crops. The result of this widespread prohibition was the elimination of hemp from our diets. Some scientists believe that this abrupt elimination has caused many humans to have imbalanced endocannabinoid systems.

The endocannabinoid system is an internal system that regulates vital bodily functions such as our immune system, mood, memory, appetite, sleep patterns and pain. Scientists suspect that imbalanced endocannabinoid systems are responsible for many of today’s illnesses. Whilst we cannot legally outline the specific illnesses that can be remedied with CBD supplementation, typing ‘CBD benefits’ on Google should give you a better perspective.

But CBD is not only an excellent supplement for helping with a wide range of illnesses, it can also be used on a daily basis as a mood enhancer and for general wellbeing.

How Do I Use CBD oil as a Food Supplement? 

Combining CBD oil with a varied diet, regular exercise and a healthy lifestyle is an excellent way of making sure that your health is tip-top. But there is a lot of confusion in regards to dosing and many beginners don’t know where to start.

We always recommend new users to start with a small dose and then work their way up to their optimum dose, which is the amount of CBD oil that gives the best results for whatever purpose they use it for. Everyone is different so this can vary greatly from person to person, it really comes down to experimentation and conscious self-observation.

If you already know how much you need then the next logical step is to calculate the most cost-effective strength to buy. With BROWN’S CBD oil, the higher the strength, the better the value for money. If for example, you brought a 5% bottle of BROWN’S CBD oil and found that your optimum dose is 5 drops, that would equate to 12.5mg which is the equivalent of one drop of our 25% CBD oil. In this situation having one drop of the 25% instead of 5 of the 5% oil would make sense economically.

In terms of administration, it is important to hold the drops under the tongue for at least one minute to ensure that you absorb as much CBD as possible. We tend to hold ours for three or four minutes! Sublingual glands absorb CBD directly into the bloodstream which gives a fast-acting effect. Once you have finished holding the drops, wash them down with a glass of water! You can choose to add CBD to drinks and food but less CBD will be absorbed into your system.

Why Choose BROWN’S CBD?


BROWN’S CBD oil is made by PhD scientists at Europe’s largest and most experienced CBD producers so you can rest assured that it is the highest quality available. Part of our mission is to make pharmaceutical quality CBD oil available and affordable for as many people as possible so we sell our oils at market-leading prices.

CBD Meditation

CBD & Meditation – A Match Made In Heaven?

If done correctly, meditation can be an extremely effective method for reducing the stress of living in today’s world. The main goal is to take a step back from the thought processes that are constantly running in our brains, as it is these very processes that cause stress and anxiety. However, in practice, thinking of nothing can be a lot more difficult than it sounds and many people claim to be unable to meditate.

So what’s the best way to meditate?

After experimenting with CBD and meditation ourselves at BROWN’S CBD, we discovered that using it before meditation can make achieving that thoughtless, present state a whole lot easier.

Below is a step by step guide for meditating with CBD:

  1. Apply your optimum dose of CBD oil under the tongue.
  2. Hold the oil for at least one minute before swallowing, have a glass of water, then wait 5 minutes before moving on to the next step.
  3. Find a comfortable place with no distractions then sit down in the most comfortable position.
  4. Close your eyes and begin breathing deeply. Take your time to find an optimum breathing pattern, breathing as deeply as possible without having to force it.
  5. As you breathe, try focussing solely on the sound of your breath and free your mind of any thoughts.
  6. Continue for as long as you want then open your eyes.

This will be difficult to begin with, the trick is to identify when a distracting thought comes into the mind, to face it, then refocus on the breathing. Even if you only achieve a few seconds of being present before a thought pops up, do not worry, this is normal and it will increase with practice.

So if you are looking to reduce stress in your life then this could be a powerful combination to help you do so. If you need any CBD oil to help you get started, BROWN’S CBD oils are guaranteed to be the highest quality available on the market and are sold at an honest, affordable price.

How To Look After Your CBD Oil

From seed to bottle, BROWN’S CBD oil is produced under strict quality control conditions to ensure that the final product is the best quality that is physically possible to create. However, if you would like your CBD oil to remain as potent as when you purchased it, there are a few important steps that you should follow.

1) Keep it away from light.

A two-year study on the effects of light, temperature and air exposure on cannabidiol showed light (any form of light, not only sunlight) to be the single biggest factor contributing to the loss of cannabinoids, especially in solutions such as CBD oil.

2) Keep it cool.

Although this particular study showed that the effect of temperature, up to 20 degrees, had an insignificant impact on cannabinoid content, to be safe, it is recommended that CBD oil is stored in a cool place as high temperatures can reduce CBD content.

3) Reduce exposure to air.

As with light, air oxidation was proven to cause significant cannabinoid loss. Whilst your oil will inevitably be exposed to air when you use it, we recommend that you keep the bottle closed as much as possible.

The study concluded that cannabis extracts are reasonably stable for 1-2 years if they are stored in the dark at room temperature.

Luckily for you, BROWN’S CBD has you covered! BROWN’S CBD oil is bottled into mat black bottles so you can rest assured that your oil is not being damaged.BROWN'S CBD

Whilst we know that it is nice to be able to see the oil itself, we prioritise quality over aesthetics. Besides, you can still look inside the bottle or give it a shake to check how much you have left!

How To Live A Healthier & Happier Life With BROWN’S CBD

If you could wish for two things in life, what would they be? The chances are that the majority of you responded with something related to, or that leads to good health and happiness. And quite rightly so! A life lacking either of the two can lead to a huge range of problems. Unfortunately, we live in an era that is filled with external factors such as work stress and pollution which make optimising one’s health more important than ever before.

So what can we do about it? The good news is that there are many things we can do to improve our happiness and health. The basics are to eat a varied and balanced diet, plant-based if possible, and to do regular exercise. But why stop there? We should all be doing everything we can. Improving your happiness and health will not only improve your quality of life but also of those around you, positive change tends to have a ripple effect.

So how does BROWN’S CBD improve health and happiness? We can confidently say that for many of you, regularly using BROWN’S CBD could be one of the best decisions you ever make. BROWN’S CBD supplements the Endocannabinoid System (ES) which is a network of receptors that are present throughout the human body. The ES controls vital bodily functions such as our immune system, mood, memory, appetite, sleep patterns and pain. If you have issues with any of the latter then you should seriously consider using CBD.

Not all CBD oils are made equal so before buying, you must verify that it is all of the following:

  1. Full Spectrum – Full spectrum CBD oils contain trace elements of other important natural chemicals such as CBDV, CBDA, CBG, CBN, CBC, terpenoids & THC (less than 0.2%). These are all the chemicals that are naturally found in hemp plants and they work together in harmony to produce an optimum effect. This is commonly known as the ‘entourage effect’.
  2. 100% Natural – CBD oils that are not 100% natural can contain harmful chemicals such as pesticides which can not only be a danger to your health but also to the environment.
  3. Golden in colour – the highest quality CBD oils available on the market tend to have a golden colour. The golden colour is due to an extra filtration process after decarboxylation. Decarboxylation is a process which heats the oil over a period of time to activate all of the important chemicals. Golden oil is made by filtering out excess plant matter which gives it a much milder taste and purer consistency.
  4. Lab tested – Last but not least, the CBD oil must be third-party lab tested to prove it’s chemical content. Do not purchase any CBD oil that has not been third-party lab tested.

BROWN’S CBD not only fits all of the criteria above but is also one of the best value CBD oils available on the internet. So if you are ready to take your next step towards a healthier and happier lifestyle, click here to browse our range of premium quality CBD oils.

Hemp Helps Humans? Since When?!

In recent years, hemp-derived CBD products have been increasingly under the spotlight for their vast range of benefits to human health. But at what point did humans realise the true magic of hemp?

Well, even though it took the UK Medicines Healthcare products and Regulatory Agency (MHRA) until 2018 to officially recognise CBD as a medicine, it has been used if for nearly 5000 years!

In 2737 BC, Chinese emperor Shen-Nung was known to make topical hemp oils and teas to alleviate pain. Shortly after, it was being used for anaesthetics, hair loss, blood clots and tapeworms.

The Romans were also smart enough to use hemp to optimise their health. Around 77AD a pharmacopoeia written by Dioscorides stated that hemp was used for ear pain, stomach related issues and burns. Hemp was also very popular in Middle Eastern regions where physicians recognised hemp to be anti-inflammatory, anti-epileptic, pain relieving and diuretic.

The list doesn’t end there… Hemp was known as ‘Sacred Grass’ in India and was used in various pastes and drinks for both recreational and medicinal purposes. Hemp has been found buried with Ancient Greeks and the Egyptians wrote about using hemp as an anti-inflammatory.

In the western world, hemp was a vital crop which was mainly used as fiber. It was so important to England that in 1533, Henri VIII threatened farmers who weren’t growing hemp with a fine. However, it was used across Europe to treat coughs and tumours, as an antibiotic and to improve appetite (munchies?). In North America, Robert Burton’s “Anatomy of Melancholy” recommended the use of hemp to treat mental health disorders.

Sadly today, the availability of CBD products is under threat. The EU is pushing to ban and reclassify all CBD products as ‘novel foods’ which means that ‘they have not been consumed to a significant degree by humans in the EU before 15 May 1997’. Really? They should read this article!

How BROWN’S CBD Came To Be

Hi! Laurence Brown here, CEO of BROWN’S CBD.

Before the birth of BROWN’S CBD, I had long been thinking of the perfect idea to start my own business. My criteria for a ‘perfect’ business idea was that it had to have a positive impact on people, be good for the environment and, of course, generate enough money for it to be sustainable.

It was in my final year of university that I stumbled upon an article about the vast benefits of using CBD oil and decided to order a bottle and see what all the hype was about. The results were astonishing, it just made all aspects of life easier and my mood increased dramatically. I recommended it to friends and family who all thanked me for the positive impact it had on them.

That’s when it clicked, this was the perfect idea I had been looking for – a natural, environmentally friendly product which improves the quality of life of those who use it. I began researching hemp and CBD on a deeper level and identified the differences between good and bad CBD oil. I then spent several months sampling CBD oils (yes, it was as pleasant as it sounds) from all of the leading EU hemp farms and one oil stood out from the rest in terms of quality and taste. This was the oil that would become BROWN’S CBD oil.

I decided to sell BROWN’S CBD at a highly competitive price in order to make it affordable for as many people as possible and I can confidently say that BROWN’S CBD oil is one of the finest quality CBD oils in the world. Our PhD scientists have confirmed that it is not physically possible to create anything better in terms of quality.

So that’s the story of BROWN’S CBD up until now! I invite you to do some reading into the benefits of CBD, there is a long list! If you think it could help you, click here to browse our products.
