The collection features three distinct products, centred around OTO’s pillars of FOCUS, AMPLIFY and BALANCE, which are designed to complement moments within the natural rhythm of the day.

What is CBD?
CBD is a molecule that is derived from the cannabis plant. There are two main component molecules in the cannabis plant – THC and CBD. THC is the component that you might usually associate with cannabis, as it is psychoactive and makes you feel ‘high’. CBD, however, is non-psychoactive and is almost THC’s direct counter-balancer. Crucially, CBD is non-addictive, totally legal in this country and physically impossible to overdose on. Your body is built to naturally regulate it, so similarly to a vitamin, you can’t have too much of it and it doesn’t have any negative effects on the body.

With its rich aroma and layered flavour, this bitters creates a new floral dimension of flavour to a drink, whilst also have great function on the body.
