Dragonfly CBD is suitable for persons aged 18 years or older.
CBD has a positive effect on the body’s endocannabinoid system. This system is made up of internal cannabinoids (endocannabinoids), cannabinoid (CB1 and CB2) receptors and enzymes responsible for the manufacture and disposal of endocannabinoids.
To those less familiar with the world of Cannabinoid science, this means we all have this system and receptors that react specifically to Cannabinoids like CBD. It’s best envisaged as a kind of lock and key system.
Evidence suggests that CBD may bind at a different site on CB1 receptors and act to switch the receptor off. This may be beneficial when the endocannabinoid system becomes overactive and suffers associated pressure and tension.
While there are many different ways to take CBD.
We recommend taking CBD under the tongue (sublingually) to maximise absorption. Other options include topical application (rubbing oil directly onto the skin) and oral consumption (directly swallowing/infusing the oil into food).

When formulated into organic hemp seed oil, CBD can taste earthy or even grassy. The taste of Dragonfly CBD oil also depends on whether it incorporates Narrow Spectrum or Broad Spectrum extract. The Broad Spectrum (sold in bronze packaging) is designed for more experienced users, as it offers a fuller flavour, retaining terpenes and other plant material. Alternatively, the Narrow Spectrum products provide for a lighter alternative and are recommended for all CBD users.
As an entirely natural compound, CBD is ‘extracted’ – not made – from our carefully cultivated Cannabis Sativa L., also known as Hemp. Shortly after harvesting, organic flowers are processed in our laboratory using a state-of-the-art extraction process.
The plant material is first soaked in ethanol to remove all cannabinoids. This ethanol-cannabinoid mix is then distilled and evaporated into natural CBD extract using advanced chromatography techniques. Not only does the ethanol help to produce high quality CBD oil, it also protects the extract from bacteria and fermentation.
Production costs for the best CBD extract are unavoidably high. The controlled nature of cannabis production requires the Dragonfly CBD facilities to be government–licensed and subjected to stringent quality measures. The manufacturing process is carefully monitored throughout; from the selection of specific strains of seed that yield high-quality cannabis to a specialist extraction process that guarantees the consistent quality of Dragonfly CBD products.
No. The “high” that is often associated with Cannabis requires the psychoactive cannabinoid THC to be present. Dragonfly Biosciences carefully selects Cannabis strains that are low in THC and high in CBD and then uses specialist extraction techniques to remove THC content from its Dragonfly CBD oil range.
No. CBD is a non-psychoactive substance and at present is not something that drugs tests scan for. You should always ensure you are taking a product that is THC-free. Check that your supplier has lab reports available on its website verifying its cannabinoid content.
To our knowledge, Dragonfly CBD should not cause any side effects. CBD is generally well-tolerated and considered safe.
