Why we call our products Hemp, rather than just CBD, and why we think high strength isn’t always good value!


The Canni Family have always strived to bring the finest quality products for the fairest price, which is why we have moved to Cold Pressed rather than the commonly used CO2 Heat extraction. Find our more about this below.

We have also always recommended that our customers start off with a lower dosage product initially, why pay more for a higher strength product if you don’t actually need it. Build up the amount of the lower dose products and then see if you believe their is further room for improvement. Many of our customers have found that the lower strength, taken in larger quantities suits their needs and is more cost effective.

Did you know that Hemp is a strain of the Cannabis plant called ‘Canabis Sativa L’ plant? 

This plant is naturally higher in CBD and low in THC but that is not all! Our products contain a full spectrum of other cannabinoids, because the whole plant is used, and the oil comes from a cold pressed process to ensure it contains CBG, CBN, CBC, terpenes and terpenoids with no heavy metals and pesticides. This is why we no longer call our products just CBD as that is one small part of what the Hemp plant has to offer. 

We are one of the first companies in the UK to offer Cold Pressed, which is known to be the safest and most effective way to ensure all compounds remain active and present in your bottle.

Why high strength oils are not always the best value!

Our customers were finding that more drops of the lower strength oils made it more affordable and they didn’t require higher strength bottles. So we now offer our 5% oil in 3 different sizes and our largest size bottle still cost less than our original Premium Oil which was £89.95. In our original Premium oil there was 10.4mg of CBD per drop – now if you take 5 drops of our new Cold Pressed 5% oil it is the equivalent amount but at less than a third of the price.  

We suggest that you take the amount of drops of our 5% oil or Water-Soluble initially to find our what suits your needs, building up gradually, rather than purchasing expensive high strength bottles.

If you still think you might struggle with taking the number of drops daily that you believe you need from our 5% Cold Pressed oil range then try our Water soluble as this can be added to a drink and is absorbed completely through the gastric system – so no wastage!
