CBD Oil as a food supplement is rising in popularity in Ireland. For those people looking for more information on how you can purchase locally and trust the product you’re buying, we have the study done for you. Finding the ideal CBD product for you involves a few areas of research – CBD brands, quality of ingredients, dose amount and product range.
What Are CBD Supplements, and Why Should I Buy them in Dublin?
CBD, or Cannabidiol oil, comes from cannabis. CBD is a chemical compound present in both marijuana and hemp plants which are relatives of the cannabis plant family. All CBD in Ireland comes from hemp since there are far fewer levels of THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) in hemp compared to marijuana.
Hemp plants are helpful in many ways, for both fibres and as a dietary supplement, backed by years of research study and much anecdotal evidence shared by men and women. CBD use is now worldwide within the worldwide wellness industry. Each dose of CBD oil contains a range of nutrients like complex B vitamins, Omega 3’s and is a source of iron which adds to the appeal of this popular food supplement.
Like many products in the wellness community, CBD oil acts as a food supplement and can have potentially helpful effects on a number of complaints relating to health. However CBD oils can only be marketed as food supplements and not branded as having medicinal benefits. All claims are derived from testimonials by both men and women plus the results of small-scale research studies and trials.
Legal Status of Cannabidiol in Dublin
For 25 years, the Irish government has recognised hemp as a good source of fibre and oils. Due to the limitations on THC, all hemp products need to contain a level of 0.2% THC or less. So any CBD you purchase in Dublin won’t be able to get you high.
Anyone who grows hemp requires licenses from the Department of Health and Facilitation. A grower obtains this from the Health Products Regulatory Authority. If you sell or grow hemp, no matter how much of an expert you are, you aren’t allowed to make medicinal claims about hemp products for marketing purposes.
A bottle of CBD oil can only be sold as a food supplement and to be taken like Calcium for bones, Magnesium, Vitamin D and others. For example, vitamins and minerals are not prescribed by a doctor but recommended by health food shops and speciality stores who have experience using supplements daily. CBD cream can also be of use to people who would like to apply terpenes directly to the skin.
CBD oil is legal in Dublin but is subject to restrictions and guidelines as stated above. One research study looks at the reasons why cannabis supplements like CBD remain in a confusing grey area in terms of legality for many countries. The ingredients and ratio of cannabinoids in CBD products require marketing regulation and safety measures in terms of product labelling and product testing.
*Our products are considered food supplements for adults, just like other vitamins (calcium, magnesium, vitamin D, and other multivitamins) that provide nutrients for the body. Studies are continuously being carried out to find any evidence for the risk a product might have on a person. Vitamins and supplements are not intended to replace a varied diet, food, or other needs.
CBD Food Supplements We Offer
Dr. Hemp Me sells a variety of CBD products in Dublin, Cork, and surrounding areas. All CBD inventory is accessible online and available for delivery across the UK and EU.
The wide selection of Cannabidiol available in their online store comes from the Cannabis Sativa L and is grown in Ireland and the UK. Each cannabinoid is housed by a hemp seed carrier oil.
Following the law, all products have 0.2% or less THC in them. With such food supplements, you can also get benefits from five other compounds present in Cannabis Sativa L. Light can destroy critical components of CBD oils, hence why all oils are sold in light-blocking bottles.
CBD oil is just one form of hemp product that is offered by Dr Hemp Me. It undergoes absorption in the body when dropped into the mouth, under the tongue. Here it can quickly absorb and enter the blood.
Our full-spectrum CBD oil comes in different doses and includes several plant extracts to add to its effectiveness. This has trace amounts of THC and includes other cannabinoids.
The Full-Spectrum CBD oil includes:

CBD Oil for Pets
Humans aren’t the only mammals to enjoy the abilities of CBD oil. Pets can metabolise Cannabidiol and other hemp extracts in the same way as humans do.
For pets, our CBD oil is affordable and comes in two doses: 2.5% and 5% strength.
Dosing instructions are:
- Below 20lbs – 2 to 4 drops

For the best benefits, try to give your pets daily oil for 4 to 6 weeks.
If placing CBD drops under your tongue for five minutes isn’t your thing, we have CBD-infused Gummies available. There are two flavour choices: Strawberry and Fizzy. These fruity, fun flavours are fun to eat and absorb rapidly and work for children and adults.
There is 25mg of CBD per gummy. There are also options of the 500mg and 750 mg Gummies.
