The Complete CBD Oil FAQ Guide (www.organicauthority.com)

  • CBD oil or cannabidiol oil is a substance derived from the hemp or cannabis plant containing high amounts of the cannabinoid cannabidiol.
  • Most CBD oil comes from industrial hemp rather than psychoactive marijuana strains; while the two plants are related, industrial hemp does not contain nearly as much psychoactive tetrahydrocannabiol, another cannabinoid better known as THC.
  • In Colorado, where the growth of both industrial hemp and cannabis is legal, you can find some of the best certified organic CBD, and while technically it is illegal companies to sell this product across state lines , some startups are taking advantage of loopholes and selling it online.
  • Claims have surfaced pointing to the possibility that CBD is more effective when taken in a 1:1 ratio with THC; this contributes to rumors that CBD oil produced from industrial hemp is less effective than CBD oil produced from cannabis.
