If you live in Georgia, you may have already heard friends or co-workers talking about their results with CBD oil. CBD is an abbreviation for Cannabidiol, a beneficial component of the hemp plant. CBD oil from NuLeaf Naturals is non-intoxicating and contains less than 0.3% THC, so even though it is derived from the same plant as marijuana, CBD oil can’t get you “high.”
How to Take CBD in Georgia
CBD can essentially be taken in three different ways: sublingual, topical, or ingestion.
- Sublingual. This is generally considered to be the most rapidly absorbed way to take CBD oil in Georgia. Simply dispense the desired number of drops under the tongue and hold it there for fifteen to thirty seconds. Then, swish and swallow and refrain from drinking or eating anything for at least fifteen minutes.
- Topical. CBD oil can easily be administered as an active topical. Apply a generous amount to the affected area and massage thoroughly into the skin. Alternatively, you can add CBD oil to your favorite lotion before applying. Some people like to use this method in addition to taking the oil orally or sublingually.
- Ingestion. You can take CBD oil orally, add it to your favorite hot or cold beverage, or blend it into dips and salad dressing. The fresh, green taste adds depth and complexity to salads and dressings.
Georgia CBD Legislation
Georgia laws can be confusing, and we recommend checking with your local and state authorities to understand current regulations in Atlanta and throughout the Peach State. At the time of this writing, Georgia currently upholds laws that are quite different from other states. For example, despite the passing of the U.S. Farm Bill in December of 2018 (which federally legalized industrial hemp containing no more than 0.3% THC, the euphoria-inducing element of marijuana), Georgia maintains fairly strict MMJ policies. For example, Georgia law does not distinguish between what it calls “low-THC” products (containing no more than 5% THC) and the government-deemed threshold of legal CBD oil, which contains no more than 0.3% THC.
For a small fee, Georgia residents can apply for a “low-THC” card by joining the state registry. However, because those cards permit access to buy medical marijuana, the cards are only granted for about a dozen specific health conditions, and only upon recommendation of a licensed physician. However, because of the U.S. Farm Bill, Georgia residents can always order online from a reputable manufacturer such as NuLeaf Naturals.
