CBD is witnessing a surge in global popularity as modern research begins to support its various uses, documented through thousands of years of anecdotal evidence. However, the market is littered with low quality products and a confusing buying process. 


This inspired leek-based couple Gemma and Joe Wilde to create the CBD company Unspun, a fresh take on CBD.

I’ve seen CBD around, but what actually is it? 


Let’s start with the basics. CBD (Cannabidiol) is a natural compound from hemp and cannabis plants that comes without the psychoactive effects of THC (Tetrahydrocannabinol) – meaning you won’t feel high. It’s popular all around the world and has been used for thousands of years.


Why do people use CBD?


Research suggests that CBD has the following potential benefits:


  • Lowering anxiety
  • Improving sleep quality
  • Reducing inflammation
  • Alleviating pain

To give a bit of real world context, here a few quotes from Unspun customers:


“They really help calm me right down and actually put my feelings into words so my wife can understand what I’m going through rather than wanting to just bottle it all up and not talk to anyone. Definitely, recommend. Thanks Unspun!”


“Impressed by these, blurred the harshness of the world and made me feel chilled but still able to focus on important and difficult tasks!”


“I take at bedtime and it totally stops me overthinking and stressing about sleep”

Choosing wisely: Not all CBD products are created equal


The effectiveness depends on the serving size and quality of the product. It’s often hard to understand how much CBD you’re consuming or which types of products have the potential to be effective. Spoiler alert: a CBD bath bomb might offer a lovely experience, but the amounts of CBD are often so low that it’s unlikely to be effective. Always make sure you understand the amount of CBD you’re consuming. CBD is best measured in milligrams (mg). 


Can I buy CBD locally?


Yes! Unspun is a Staffordshire-based CBD company and is on a mission to simplify the world of CBD.


They offer a focused range of CBD Gummies and CBD Oils, helping you to easily find the product that’s right for you. Customers love the quality, as well as the clear labelling and instructions so you always know how much CBD is in each dose. They also send out a free user guide with every purchase to help you learn how to use the products.


Their products contain Broad Spectrum CBD, which uses more of the plant compared to many high street brands. The naturally occurring compounds within Broad Spectrum CBD have been shown to work together to enhance the bioavailability and effectiveness of CBD, in a process known as the “entourage effect”.


Should I try CBD Gummies or CBD Oils?


You might be wondering what type of CBD product to try. Here’s a quick comparison of CBD Gummies and CBD Oils: 


Unspun’s Broad Spectrum CBD Gummies are easy to take as and when you need them, whether you’re at home, work or travelling. Each natural, vegan gummy delivers a market leading 25mg of Broad Spectrum CBD. Perfect for when you need something discrete to take the edge off. 


Unspun’s Broad Spectrum CBD Oil comes in a mini size allowing you to try the product out before committing to the full size bottle. Each bottle comes with an easy-to-read dropper, so you always know exactly how much you’re using. While the natural flavour of the oil is there, it’s not overpowering like some other Broad Spectrum CBD oils. 


What are the safety and side effects of CBD?


Common side effects, when they occur, are usually mild and include fatigue, dry mouth, and changes in appetite.


CBD may interact with some medications. It’s a good idea to talk with your doctor or clinician before trying CBD if you’re taking any medications or have underlying health conditions. It’s also important to consult a health professional if you are pregnant or breastfeeding. 


The World Health Organization has reported that CBD is generally well-tolerated and has a good safety profile. Most people do not experience any negative side effects.
