What is CBD oil?
Cannabidiol (CBD) is a naturally occurring compound found in the resinous flower of cannabis, a plant with a rich history as a medicine going back thousands of years. A safe, non-addictive substance, CBD is one of more than a hundred “phytocannabinoids,” which are unique to cannabis and endow the plant with its robust therapeutic profile.
CBD is closely related to another important medicinally active phytocannabinoid: tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), the compound that causes the high that cannabis is famous for. These are the two components of cannabis that have been most studied by scientists.
Both CBD and THC have significant therapeutic attributes. But unlike THC, CBD does not make a person feel “stoned” or intoxicated. That’s because CBD and THC act in different ways on different receptors in the brain and body.
How often should I take my CBD?
Everyone is different physiologically, please follow the recommended servings on the bottles and try amount up or down as needed. However, it is important to note that CBD tinctures last relatively long compared to other edibles.
If you are feeling as though you need to use your tincture multiple times per day to truly benefit, you may not be taking enough or you may need to speak to your doctor about adding other strategies to your health management plan.
Consult your doctor first, but here is an explanation of Care Better Daily’s CBD concentration and ideas for serving:
