Will I be able to function while taking cannabis oil?

What is the difference between hemp, cannabis and marijuana CBD

The goal in taking cannabis oil for any condition isn’t to make the patient high. The goal is to find the dosing that is in harmony with each individual. We do this by beginning with micro dosing, communicating and adjusting as the patient’s body dictates.

What is the endocannabinoid system?

Each person’s dosing protocol is specific for them after a consultation. Because everybody’s brain chemistry is different, there is no standard dose for everyone. Therefore, we err on the side of caution always and take a very conservative approach in the beginning, slowly increasing as the body builds tolerance.

This isn't an option for most people, however. According to Brightfield Group, a market research firm based in Chicago, in 2007, only seven percent of people bought their CBD oil from dispensaries. Most – a whopping 65 percent – purchased the product online.

The Total Plant Complex bottle is a full spectrum hemp extract containing hemp CBD, other cannabinoids, fatty acids, plant sterols, chlorophyll, and naturally occurring vitamin E, giving you more of what the whole hemp plant has to offer.

Depending on where you live, you may be able to buy CBD oil in a dispensary. This is Nathan's recommendation, whenever possible, as it allows you the highest level of traceability.

Where to Buy CBD Oil

"I think the first thing to do is ask the manufacturer of the product that you're buying where their CBD is coming from," says Caitlin Moakley, lead buyer and manager of the Body Care department at Cambridge Naturals. "If they can answer that question for you, you're on the right track."

CBD oil companies should be able to offer you clear traceability with regards to the origin of the hemp used in the product, which should be grown organically and be pesticide-free.

"When you look at the lab test results for your CBD oil," writes Kopelson, "You can tell the oil is decarboxylated if you have all four ingredients (CBDa, CBD, THCa, and THC) with the CBD amount being much higher than the CBDa and the THC amount being much higher than the THCa."

Third-party lab tested – Yep there's CBD in this oil!
