CBD stands for cannabidiol. It is the second most prevalent of the active ingredients of cannabis (marijuana). While CBD is an essential component of medical marijuana, it is derived directly from the hemp plant, which is a cousin of the marijuana plant. While CBD is a component of marijuana (one of hundreds), by itself it does not cause a “high.” According to a report from the World Health Organization, “In humans, CBD exhibits no effects indicative of any abuse or dependence potential…. To date, there is no evidence of public health related problems associated with the use of pure CBD.”
Is cannabidiol legal?
CBD is readily obtainable in most parts of the United States, though its exact legal status is in flux. All 50 states have laws legalizing CBD with varying degrees of restriction, and while the federal government still considers #CBD in the same class as #marijuana, it doesn’t habitually enforce against it. In December 2015, the #FDA eased the regulatory requirements to allow researchers to conduct CBD trials. Currently, many people obtain CBD online without a medical cannabis license. The government’s position on CBD is confusing, and depends in part on whether the CBD comes from hemp or marijuana. The legality of CBD is expected to change, as there is currently bipartisan consensus in Congress to make the hemp crop legal which would, for all intents and purposes, make CBD difficult to prohibit.
It is always a good idea to start with a lower dose product and work your way into higher doses as you realize your own body’s needs and processing of the product. There is no push for you to buy more than you may want or need. Some say that they find success with only 5mg per day and others may consume up to 100mg of CBD oil in a single day to find the results that they’re looking for.
Typically, the lower levels, like 500mg, are often just what someone with everyday functionality needs, and might find useful. Maybe they’re dealing with some base-level joint discomfort or life stressors and find a little bit of CBD is just what they need. When you get into the 1000mg level, it’s a higher potency of CBD and, thus, better for those who may be dealing with deeper issues. Above that, Happy Vapor Shops offers 3,000mg – our highest potency tincture. For those who are seasoned consumers of CBD, or those who feel they need a bit more punch, this is their choice. Each potency level will vary in color and flavor in accordance with their strengths, so the higher strengths have a rich color and a more prominent note whereas the lower milligram levels of CBD tincture will be more clear in tone and taste.
