Green House CBD Specialists on Tooting High Street became the first shop in London to start selling ‘CBD buds’ in October.
‘CBD buds’, also referred to as ‘flowers’, are specifically grown to maximise levels of CBD (Cannabidiol) and keep THC (Tetrahydrocannabinol) below 0.2% – the plant’s two primary compounds.
The widely advocated medical benefits of cannabis are attributed to CBD. It is legally sold in oil form on UK high streets and is commonly used to relieve symptoms of long-term illnesses such as multiple sclerosis.
Green House CBD Specialists does not offer medical advice and ensures the THC levels of their buds are below 0.2%, which it claims is the legal limit that allows the product to be sold as ‘industrial hemp.’
They have since expanded to Putney and will soon open a branch in Brixton.
