• Are Professor Herb products legal?

    Yes! Absolutely, otherwise we wouldn't be here today.

    There is a general misconception and uncertainty around the legality of our products, which is completely understandable, since our products are both very new, and unique to the UK market.

    As a brand we have worked tirelessly to ensure our range of hemp-based products remain well within the legal framework and adhere to all laws and regulations within the UK.

    Our products have been through a rigorous analysis, testing and submitting process to all relevant UK authoritative bodies, including Public Health England.

    Our products are batch tested to ensure the THC levels are less than 0.2% and less than 1 milligram of THC per pack. In most cases, our products contain lower than the limit of quantification of Delta-9 Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) concentration on a dry-weight basis, meaning that the content is almost zero.

    All our products are non-psychoactive and offer no psychoactive effects. You cannot and will not be arrested for using or selling our products, subject to age restrictions.

  • Is smoking hemp safe?

    Hemp cigarettes and hemp blends are free of tobacco and addictive substances like nicotine.

    That being said, we must state that it is not a safe alternative to tobacco or cigarettes as it can still potentially have damaging effects on the body, as with any combustible smoking product. Right now, we don’t have data regarding the health effects of hemp smoke. Animal studies from other companies show marijuana smoke damages the lungs similarly to smoking tobacco.

    If you take medications or are pregnant, you may want to talk to a healthcare provider before using hemp-based or CBD products.

  • What are the benefits of smoking hemp?

    Smoking hemp is one of the fastest delivery methods of cannabidiol (CBD) in the body.

    When smoking hemp, the cannabinoids are in direct contact with the lungs and transfer straight into the bloodstream. This makes smoking hemp a very effective way to calm and relax your body immediately, instead of waiting 30 minutes to an hour for edibles or other methods to take effect.

    Smoking CBD hemp has high bioavailability that goes over 25%, and in some cases, up to 50%. This means that the body absorbs CBD at a faster rate and gets more of it into your system compared to other forms of consumption, such as CBD edibles, which have the lowest bioavailability rates. The bioavailability rate of CBD gummies, or the amount of CBD from the gummies absorbed, would be lower compared to smoking the same amount of hemp. This is because CBD gummies are ingested and hemp cannabidiol is metabolized through the stomach — also known as the first-pass metabolism — where most of it gets “destroyed.”

  • Does CBD get you high?

    No. Categorically, CBD will not get you high, regardless of the amount you consume.

    You may feel more relaxed, less stressed and maybe even more content in your mood, however, you won’t feel any of the effects commonly associated with cannabis use. Our products are designed to provide a subtle, calming euphoria without any heavy effects.

  • Will CBD show up on a drugs test?

    The short answer to this, is no, however, the trace amounts of THC found in our full spectrum products can build up in your system over time. Although very unlikely, this could mean that they show up on a workplace drug test if used regularly.

    If you're likely to get tested for THC in your workplace, we'd always recommend using our CBD isolate products instead, as these contain zero levels of THC.

  • What happens to cannabinoids when you light a hempette pre-roll?

    When you light a CBD hemp pre-roll, you are activating the cannabinoids present in the hemp. The process of exposing hemp to high temperatures when smoking is known as decarboxylation.

    Cannabinoids are present in hemp in their inactive or acidic forms — cannabidiol (CBD) is cannabidiolic acid (CBDA) before decarboxylation. When cannabinoids are inactive, they can’t interact with the receptors of the endocannabinoid system.

    The process of decarboxylation or exposing hemp to heat is important to get the main benefits of the hemp. High temperature activates the cannabinoids and allows them to interact with the endocannabinoid system in our bodies and that is what allows CBD and hemp to work it’s magic.

  • What is H4CBD?

    H4-CBD is a new form of CBD which is growing in popularity for its high-level of potency, with some sources boasting that it is 100 times more effective than CBD, it’s no wonder that the hydrogenated cannabinoid, H4CBD, has been getting a lot of attention recently. This hydrogenated version of CBD is created by combining hemp-derived CBD molecules with hydrogen atoms. It delivers many of the benefits and effects enjoyed with CBD, with its potency meaning only a very small dose is required by most people.
