By now you’ve surely heard the term “CBD” but what is it, what can you use it for, and is it legal in California? CBD stands for cannabidiol, a molecule of the cannabis plant. Unlike its psychoactive counterpart known as marijuana, CBD is non-intoxicating, even though both substances are derived from the cannabis sativa plant. The popularity of CBD oil in California continues to grow for a number of reasons.
Why Buy CBD in California?
CBD oil is non-intoxicating and generally considered safe. Even though marijuana can be bought legally in California, that doesn’t mean everyone wants to use it. CBD oil can be used while driving, working, and pretty much any time of day or night.
CBD oil has a variety of applications, as it works synergistically with the body’s endocannabinoid system (ECS) to keep the body in a state of balance and order. In fact, there is so much anecdotal support for CBD oil in California that scientists are studying CBD to learn even more about it.
How to Take CBD
You can take CBD oil in three ways: ingest it, take it orally, or apply it on your skin. NuLeaf Naturals recommends starting orally. Simply use the built-in dropper to dispense the desired number of drops under the tongue and hold it there for fifteen to thirty seconds. Then swish and swallow, and preferably avoid eating or drinking anything for about fifteen minutes. Alternatively, you can ingest CBD oil by blending it into your favorite smoothie or latte, or simply taking the desired amount orally. CBD oil can also be used as an active topical. Just apply generously and rub it deep into your skin or sore muscles, or add a few drops to your favorite lotion first.
