In stark contrast with THC, CBD is non-psychoactive and has many wholesome uses, among which are pain relief, immune aid, and heart health support, just to name a few. One of the most notable and relevant of which, especially in light of the Coronavirus pandemic, is an immune system boost. It is only these beneficial uses that CBD products are there to provide, without the psychoactive effects of Cannabis. In fact, quality CBD products are made from industrial Hemp plants also grown to make fabric and other commercial products. By US law, these plants cannot contain over 0.3% of THC - a trivial amount.
CBD products come in a variety of forms, with CBD oil being by far the most popular one. These oils contain a CBD extract in an oil base, which helps the CBD get absorbed into the body. CBD oils can be used in a variety of ways. Most people put a few drops of the oil underneath their tongue, which allows the oil to be absorbed directly into the blood through the fine capillaries. However, you can also apply the oil topically to ease joint pain and dry and acne-prone skin or even add it to your food and drinks.
The recommended dosage will depend on your weight and personal preference. Most resources suggest starting with a small dose, 20-40 mg a day for the first 7 days and then building up to a dosage you feel comfortable with, in 5 mg increments every week. Please note it's not recommended to use CBD oil more frequently than every 4-6 hours.
