At Amma Life, we feel so passionately about providing only the best CBD oil, that we have made it our life’s mission to help as many people as possible to achieve optimum wellness with our products.

What has always kept us going and knowing we are on the right track, is receiving so many wonderful testimonials and knowing what this product means to you. We LOVE it when we hear from you about how great your experiences have been with our products, our business and our customer service team!

Only the best CBD oil makes it
What makes us stand apart is that we will never compromise on the quality of our products.
When we began back in 2014 we were pioneers in the UK CBD industry. Since then we have worked with some of the EU’s most specialist hemp farmers, growing their crops outdoors without any pesticides or herbicides as nature intended in Holland, Spain and Lithuania.
To create the best CBD oil, you must start with the best hemp plant. That’s why only the highest grade of GMO-free seed is used, to produce the finest crops. But we don’t stop there. We then use state of the art extraction methods to remove waxes, excess fats and contaminants to increase the effectiveness of the oil and create superior-grade CBD oils.
Our product range is ever changing to address the needs of our customers and the world, such as our latest new products, the CBD balm and coming soon, our CBD oil & vitamin D.
All batches of CBD are tested regularly and certified by independent third parties to ensure that the exact content of CBD is present in every bottle. We also test to ensure no heavy metals, fungi or nasty microbes are in there. So you always know that what it says on the label is what’s inside the bottle.
Living the Amma Way
Living a healthy, creative and happy life is our mantra here at Amma Life. Our mission is to help everyone move towards optimum health and ultimate wellbeing. We also support the cause for growing more hemp around the world to create a healthy planet.
This amazing plant has helped decontaminate the soil around Chernobyl after the nuclear disaster. It absorbs large amounts of carbon dioxide from the air, and its flowers make great pollen for bees. By consuming CBD, you are actively supporting the resurgence of hemp and positively affecting how much is grown around the world. How exciting to be a part of this movement for change and a greener planet!
We are the original UK company to promote and offer CBD food supplements since 2014. You can trust us to provide an excellent service and expertly created CBD supplements.
What other ingredients are there and why?
Most Amma Life CBD products are whole-plant, full-spectrum supplements. What does that mean?
CBD is just one of over a hundred other cannabinoids, or special compounds, found in hemp. All of these cannabinoids work together in synergy to greater effect, making the whole greater than the sum of its parts. It’s become known as the ‘entourage effect’. That’s why, as you become more familiar with CBD, you’ll notice some products are called CBD isolate, broad-spectrum, and full spectrum.
Full spectrum means all of the cannabinoids naturally found in hemp are present in the CBD product you are buying. This includes THC, the psychoactive compound, in trace amounts (less than 0.1%). Broad spectrum means all of the compounds except THC, and CBD isolate< is only CBD, with none of the other cannabinoids or compounds.
Almost all of our CBD products are full spectrum, meaning you will consume all of the optimising nutrients of the full plant. We also mix our CBD oils with a hempseed carrier oil, which adds even more healthy nutrients into the mix.
Hempseed oil is a naturally good source of:
- “linoleic acid (omega-6) and alpha-linolenic acid (omega-3)
- Protein (25% of the calories come from this source)
- vitamin E
- Amino acids arginine, methionine and cysteine
The best CBD oil will contain its natural entourage of fellow compounds. This includes cannabinoids, terpenes, flavonoids.
CBD, and THC in trace amounts, are cannabinoids found in hemp, but they are not the only cannabinoids retained during the CBD extraction process. They come along with their natural friends from the plant. Here are some of the cannabinoids you will typically find in Amma Life CBD products:
- CBC (Cannabichromene): This cannabinoid is derived from CBGA, the source of CBD and THC. Interestingly though, CBC is not known to interact with the endocannabinoid system, but it is thought to instead interact with receptors called ‘transient receptor potential channels’, whose most notable role is in temperature regulation. This opens up a whole other avenue of research for scientists.
- THCV (Tetrahydrocannabivarin): While most cannabinoids are thought to activate the endocannabionoid receptors in the body, THVC is thought to act as an inhibitor or moderator of cannabinoids such as THC.
- CBN (Cannabinol): Although the name is very similar to cannabidiol, it is actually known more for its connection to THC. Far less psychotropic, CBN is formed when THC is exposed to air and begins a process called oxidation. It is usually found in hemp plants that have been stored for a long time and therefore ends up in small quantities in CBD products.
- CBG (Cannabigerol): CBG is an origin cannabinoid of the other major players. It appears in very low quantities in CBD products, but is still notable for its role as a parent molecule and therefore worthy of further scientific research.
Terpenes play a vital supporting role to CBD and plants. Terpenes are found in the resinous oils of all plants, and one of their most vital roles is to secrete aromas. These aromas are what make plants and flowers smell nice, in order to attract the insects to pollinate them, and sometimes repel predators.
For us, terpenes activate our olfactory senses (smell receptors) and open the doorway to upper-level functions of our brain such as emotions, reactions, stress regulation, and memory recall. They work together to help the body absorb cannabinoids.
Some of the terpenes most commonly found in hemp include:
- Myrcene: creates the musty, earthy smell most associated with hemp
- Limonene: as the name might suggest, this produces a fresh citrus smell and is commonly found in home fragrances and cleaning products
- Linalool: Also found in lavender, it has a soft, floral scent that is used in scents to help relax us or aid sleep
- Humulene: You might describe it as smelling ‘hoppy’, also commonly found in hops cloves, and basil
- Pinene: Unsurprisingly found in pine needles and other conifers contributing that fresh forest scent
- Caryophyllene: smells spicy and woody, like chai tea. Think cinnamon, cloves and black pepper. It may also interact with the endocannabinoid system, just like CBD.
You may also have noticed that Amma Life CBD products contain flavonoids too. These are compounds that also play a vital role in the entourage effect. Their role in the wider plant world is largely in colour or pigmentation, and the word has roots in the latin ‘flavus’, meaning yellow. But they also play a role in scent, filtering UV rays, attracting or repelling animals, and preventing funghi.
There are at least 20 flavonoids found in hemp. Here are some of the most prevalent:
Cannaflavin A: found only in the cannabis sativa family of plants
Quercetin: a dark pigment found in green tea, red wine, and berries.
Apigenin: is also found in parsley, celery, and chamomile tea.
