CBD, otherwise known as Cannabidiol, is one of 113 cannabinoids found in the cannabis or hemp plant. CBD is extracted from the hemp plant using a variety of techniques and can be added to everything from CBD gummies, cbd oils and cbd drinks. For more info check out our blog The Ultimate Guide to CBD Oil.




THC, alongside CBD, are the most well known  of the 113 cannabinoids found in the hemp plant. However THC is best known for its psychoactive properties. THC is illegal in the UK.


No. CBD is often mistaken for possessing the same psychoactive properties as THC, when in actual fact, CBD does not get you high. For more info check out CBD?THC? WTF is all this fuss about? 

What does CBD do?

When should I take CBD?

CBD is all about finding your Take Five moment. You should take CBD as part of your daily ritual to help you find your chill. We recommend starting the day right with CBD to help you find your chill and balance. But your might take CBD before a big meeting, or in the evening to chill out or just before your sleep.

How much CBD should I take?

We recommend starting with 5mg of CBD as a single dose which is 1 can of Dutch Courage or 2 drops of Take Five CBD drops. Everyone is different. Don’t reach straight for the super strength, but find your perfect dose through microdosing.

  • 5mg CBD = 1 dose
  • 1 can of Dutch Courage = 1 dose 
  • It is recommended that you don’t take more than 70mg of CBD per day.

What is CBD Microdosing?

Microdosing CBD is where you take small amounts, slowly building up the amount you take until you get the effects you are looking for. Everybody is different so don’t rush for the highest mg. Check out Microdosing, Start Your Journey With Us

How do I take CBD oil?

You can take CBD oil by dosing a few drops under your tongue. If you don't like the idea of drops check out our Dutch Courage CBD drinks. With Dutch Courage no dose measuring is required as 1 drink is 1 dose.

What is natural energy?

Natural Energy is a drink is a drink that uses naturally occurring botanicals that are designed to give you an energy boost. People have been drinking yerba mate, green tea, black tea, coffee, and other plant-derived beverages for physical and mental boosts for several centuries. Unlike mainstream energy drinks pumped full of artificial ingredients, and that are always accompanied by side effects, the main side effects of natural energy drinks are a healthier brain and body. We’ll take that over chemically laden artificial concoctions any day!

Natural energy drinks can boost neurotransmitter levels to boost motivation and mood. They have nutrients that tackle free radicals and offset the effects of cell damage and ageing.
