With all the buzz around medical marijuana and the legalization of so-called “recreational” cannabis in some jurisdictions, you could be forgiven for feeling more than a little bewildered by some of the different terminology being bandied around.
And the increasing interest in the health-giving properties of cannabis derivatives such as CBD and hemp oil has only added to the confusion.
So just what are these products, and what do you need to know about them?
There’s a lot of talk in the news at the moment about the potential benefits of medical marijuana and associated products, so it’s not surprising that CBD oil is also attracting a great deal of attention.
New CBD oil products and websites promoting them are appearing at an extraordinary rate and it’s becoming increasingly difficult for interested consumers to assess and compare their benefits.
What is CBD Oil
CBD, or cannabidiol, is just one of these chemicals; it’s commonly obtained from the hemp plant in the form of an oil, and can be taken by vaping, or orally as drops, pills, capsules or even gummies and candies. There are also topical CBD preparations for use directly on injured areas.
