What is CBD?

The better known compound is THC, or tetrahydrocannabinol, which is what makes people “high.” CBD is non-psychoactive, but it has quite a few of the same possible benefits as THC.

There are other cannabinoids in the hemp plant as well that can be consumed. Chemicals such as CBG and Delta 8 THC have also been growing in popularity due to their unique effects. Products like Delta 8 THC gummies have made taking these other cannabinoids easier than ever.

Is CBD Legal?

Hemp-derived CBD products, which contain less than 0.3% of THC, are legal on the federal level but may be illegal on the state level. Marijuana derived CBD products are illegal on the federal level but may be legal on the state level. Check your state’s laws to see where your state stands on CBD. Please keep in mind nonprescription CBD products are not FDA approved.

Inhalables are considered the fastest way to receive the effects of CBD. If you would rather use edibles, there are gummies or a loose leaf tea you can brew. You can try a couple of different ways of taking CBD to see what your preferred method is.

How Much CBD Should I Use?

You should start out with a low dosage and see how your body reacts, especially if you have never used CBD before. If you want to increase the amount, increase the intake of CBD slowly. You should take small doses throughout the day, about 3 or 4 times, instead of one large dose. The amount of CBD needed will probably be different for every person, so you will probably need to experiment to see what works best for you and what results you are looking for.
