What Is CBD Oil?
Hemp CBD oil is the liquid that is extracted from hemp plants. Industrial hemp is a plant that has been used for centuries to create products such as clothes and rope. Hemp plants also produce a compound called
cannabidiol or CBD which can be extracted from the resinous substance found in its stalks, stems, and flowers. One of the main reasons why so many people are interested in CBD is because it does not have
intoxicating effects like THC but still produces many potential
health benefits. CBD is concentrated heavier in hemp plants but is also present in cannabis plants. In hemp, THC averages 0.3% or less.
How Do I Use CBD Oil?
One of the great things about CBD tinctures is that you don't have to only hold the liquid under your tongue for a minute and swallow it. There are dozens of ways that you can use a CBD tincture – even topically. Some additional methods for using tinctures include: in cold sauces, in salad dressings, mixed with lotion, made into a facial scrub, added to bathwater, added to a humidifier, mixed with essential oils in a diffuser, or added to food/beverages.
How Much CBD Should I Take?
Every person has an individual ideal dose of CBD. Many factors influence the way your body responds to CBD. A serving size that works well for someone else could be much more, or much less, than the amount of CBD that's right for you. We do find that most people are using 20-60 mg of CBD per day.
Will CBD Get Me High?
CBD is one of many non-intoxicating cannabinoids, meaning – no matter how much you use, you won't get high from CBD.
