SHOULD I STILL TAKE OTHER MEDICATIONS?

CBD is also known to interact with several medications. Before you start using CBD, discuss it with your doctor to ensure your safety and avoid potentially harmful interactions.
This is especially important if you take medications or supplements that come with a “grapefruit warning.” Both grapefruit and CBD interfere with cytochromes P450 (CYPs), a group of enzymes that are important to drug metabolism.

WHAT ABOUT SUSTAINABILITY?
We have an approach of minimal impact on the environment. Our patches are totally biodegradable and our patch packaging and postage packaging is recyclable. Whats more we use tissue paper and stickers which have been FSC certified, use soy based inks and acid free paper, all of which you can learn more about below.
The Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) certifies that the paper products that make up our printed tissue paper are sourced from a forest and supply chain that is managed responsibly and sustainably. FSC forest management standards are developed at an international level, and are then adapted to individual countries’ legal, social, and geographical settings, through national standards.
Acid Free Paper
Our personalised tissue is made from cellulose fiber where the active acid pulp is eliminated during processing. It is also lignin and sulphur-free, meaning that our ink won’t transfer from the tissue and the paper won’t leave behind any of these chemicals when decomposing.
Soy inks are an eco-friendly alternative to petroleum-based inks, made from soybeans, a renewable resource. While soy inks are slower to dry than many inks, the process produces more vibrant colours as well as having the added benefit of not leaving behind petroleum-based products when decomposing. Finally, soy inks have low levels of VOCs, reducing air pollution during the drying process.
We are working towards becoming a carbon neutral company, watch this space.
