Many people are confused about what CBD oil is and its uses. Don’t worry! Here are some simple facts that will help you understand. CBD stands for cannabidiol oil and is derived from hemp plants rather than marijuana plants and is thus legal in all 50 states. You are not required to see a doctor in order to obtain or use CBD and because hemp plants only have trace amounts of the psychoactive ingredient THC you are also not required to have a medical marijuana card. Unlike some products that are marketed as hemp seed oil, CBD is generally extracted from the entire hemp plant.
What is CBD used for?
CBD has shown promising results in treating a multitude of health problems. According to Medical Marijuana Inc there have been over 23,000 peer reviewed studies conducted on the use of CBD for treating conditions such as epilepsy, muscle spasms, chronic pain and even cancer. The great part is that while CBD has been shown to provide many benefits there is no altering of your mood or perception as well as no adverse physiological effects according to a study published by Bentham Science.
How do I take CBD?
