HOW CAN WE HELP
Will I get High
The active component in marijuana that gets people high is called THC, and there’s none of that in our CBD products. CBD has calming effects and is not at all psychoactive.
The World Anti-Doping Agency has even removed CBD from it’s banned substances list as it has been proven not to activate the receptors in the brain that THC does.
How does it work?
While CBD has no intoxicating effects, many studies have shown that it does have ant-anxiety, anti-psychotic, and even anti-inflammatory properties. Cannabidiol has been shown to behave as a partial booster to serotonin receptors. Serotonin is often referred to as the happy chemical in out bodies as it adds to our happiness and well-being.
Again, don’t just take our word for it, let the pros give you the science behind it:

What is CBD
CBD, cannabidiol, is a chemical compound found in marijuana or hemp plants. CBD is basically the part of the hemp plant that gives marijuana users that calm feeling they’ll tell you all about if you let them. Extracting this compound for use makes it so that CBD users can get that chill, without getting the high of marijuana use.
But don’t just take our word for it, check out the science of it all in this Report on Cannabidiol by the World Health Organisation.
Does it even work?
While the world catches up to marijuana plants being useful and more governments allow the use and study of the humble hemp plant, more and more studies are being done to investigate the properties and consistency of CBD.
While the creator of Silver Leaf CBD found that CBD aided him in his pain management as well as a healing balm for bed sores, CBD has been shown to help people in many ways, for many ailments:
Neurological disorders including anxiety, depression, and PTSD
Pain management (injury, chronic pain conditions, arthritis/joint pain)
Smoking and drug withdrawal
Allergies, and more
How do I use it?
CBD can be ingested and/or used in various ways through various products.
The Silver Leaf CBD makes the following products available:
CBD Face Cream, CBD Cream, and CBD Balm to be applied directly to the skin.
CBD Pet, an oil tincture to be mixed into pet food or administered orally to pets
Is it legal?
Yes, CBD products are legal for licensed retail, purchase, and use in the Republic of South Africa.
Will it show up on a drug test?
As long as you’re using CBD products and not THC products, it shouldn’t show up in your wee.
Prolonged usage may show negligible trace amounts of THC in people undergoing frequent testing, though it is unlikely.
What else is in there?
Besides high-quality CBD, our products will contain the appropriate additives necessary to support the ingestion or application of the respective products. For specific ingredients, please see the labeling of the relevant product(s).
