Cannabidiol (CBD) oil is an extract from hemp plants called Cannabis indica and Cannabis sativa . You might be more familiar with cannabis plants because they are grown for marijuana. However, CBD is not the same thing as marijuana.

CBD oil contains CBD that’s mixed with a base (carrier) oil, like coconut oil or hemp seed oil. These are called tinctures. You can get tinctures in different concentrations. The oil can also be put into capsules, gummies, and sprays.

People who support using CBD oil say that it can treat pain and anxiety; can help stimulate appetite and may help manage some types of seizures.

This article goes over what CBD is used for, the possible side effects, and what you should look for if you choose to buy CBD.

CBD vs. Marijuana

CBD is one component (called a cannabinoid ) that’s found in a hemp plant. Marijuana is a separate plant but it’s from the same species that hemp belongs to. Marijuana has CBD and hundreds of other compounds in it.

The main difference between hemp plants and marijuana plants is how much of a compound called tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) is in them. Hemp is grown to have less than 0.3% THC, while marijuana has more.

THC is what’s responsible for the psychoactive effects of cannabis—in other words, it’s what makes you feel “high.”

CBD oil generally does not have THC in it; however, a very small (trace) amount might be in products sold in certain states.

What Is CBD Oil Used For?

We’re not sure exactly how CBD works. Unlike THC, CBD doesn’t have a strong connection with the molecules in the brain that THC binds to create psychoactive effects. These are called cannabinoid receptors.

Instead, CBD works on other receptors, like the opioid receptors that help control pain. It also affects glycine receptors that control a brain chemical called serotonin which helps control your mood.

People that support the use of CBD claim that CBD oil can treat a variety of health problems, including:

  • Acne
  • Anxiety
  • Chronic pain
  • Depression
  • Drug use and withdrawal
  • High blood pressure
  • Muscle spasms
  • Poor appetite

As CBD has gained popularity, researchers have been trying to study it more. Still, there has not been a lot of clinical research to look for evidence in support of these health claims.

CBD is not a safe option for everyone. Talk to your healthcare provider if you want to try it for managing a health condition.

Anxiety

A 2015 review of research that was published in the journal Neurotherapeutics suggested that CBD might help treat anxiety disorders.

The study authors reported that CBD had previously shown powerful anxiety-relieving effects in animal research—and the results were kind of surprising.

In most of the studies, lower doses of CBD (10 milligrams per kilogram, mg/kg, or less) improved some symptoms of anxiety, while higher doses (100 mg/kg or more) had almost no effect.

The way that CBD acts in the brain could explain why this happens. In low doses, CBD might act the same as the surrounding molecules that normally bind to the receptor that “turns up” their signaling.

However, at higher doses, too much activity at this receptor site could produce the opposite effect.

There have not been many trials to look at CBD’s anxiety-relieving effects in humans. However, one was a 2019 study published in the Brazilian Journal of Psychiatry.

For the study, 57 men took either CBD oil or a sugar pill with no CBD in it (placebo) before a public-speaking event.

The researchers assessed the participants’ anxiety levels using measures like blood pressure and heart rate. The researchers also used a reliable test for mood states called the Visual Analog Mood Scale (VAMS).

The men who took 300 mg of CBD oil reported less anxiety than the men who were given a placebo; however, the men who took 100 mg or 600 mg of CBD oil did not experience the same effects.

Addiction

CBD oil might help people with substance use disorder, according to a 2015 review published in the journal Substance Abuse.

The review looked at the findings from 14 published studies. Nine of the studies looked at the effects of CBD on animals, and five studies looked at the effects on humans.

The researchers reported that CBD showed promise for treating people with opioid, cocaine, or psychostimulant use disorders.

However, the effects of CBD were quite different depending on the substance. For example, CBD without THC did not decrease withdrawal symptoms related to opioid use.

On the other hand, it did reduce drug-seeking behaviors in people using cocaine, methamphetamine, and other similar drugs.

Some experts suggest that CBD could help treat cannabis and nicotine dependence, but more research is needed to provide this theory.

High Blood Pressure

A 2017 study found that CBD oil may reduce the risk of heart disease because it can lower high blood pressure in some people.

For the study, nine healthy men took either 600 mg of CBD or the same dose of a placebo. The men who took CBD had lower blood pressure before and after experiencing stressors like exercise or extreme cold.

The study also looked at the amount of blood remaining in the heart after a heartbeat (stroke volume).

The stroke volume in the men who took CBD was lower than in was in the placebo group, meaning their hearts were pumping more efficiently.

The study suggested that CBD oil could be a complementary therapy for people with high blood pressure that is affected by stress and anxiety.

However, there is no evidence that CBD oil can treat high blood pressure on its own or prevent it in people at risk. While stress can complicate high blood pressure, it does not cause it.

Seizures

In June 2018, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved a CBD oral solution called Epidiolex.

Epidiolex is used to treat two rare forms of epilepsy in children under the age of 2: Dravet syndrome and Lennox-Gastaut syndrome. These are very rare genetic disorders that cause lifelong seizures starting in the first year of life.

Other than for these two disorders, CBD’s effectiveness for treating seizures is not known. Even with Epidiolex, it’s not clear if the anti-seizure effects are from CBD or another factor.

However, there is some evidence that CBD interacts with seizure medicines like Onfi (clobazam) and raises their concentration in the blood. That said, more research is needed to understand the link.

Possible Side Effects

Clinical research has shown that CBD oil can cause side effects. The specific side effects a person has and how bad they are varies from one person to the next and from one type of CBD to another.

Some common side effects people report from using CBD include:

  • Anxiety
  • Changes in appetite
  • Changes in mood
  • Diarrhea
  • Dizziness
  • Dry mouth
  • Nausea
  • Vomiting

CBD oil may also increase liver enzymes, which is a marker of liver inflammation.

People with liver disease should talk to their healthcare provider before taking CBD oil. They may need to have their liver enzymes checked regularly if they are using CBD.

Can You Use CBD If You’re Pregnant?

You should not use CBD oil if you’re pregnant or breastfeeding. Even though the effects of CBD are not fully understood, it does pass through the placenta.

The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) further states that pregnant people should not use marijuana because of the potential risks to a developing fetus.

Do not drive or use heavy machinery when taking CBD oil—especially when you first start using it or switch to a new brand. Remember that some products do contain THC, even in small amounts.

Interactions

CBD oil can interact with medications, including many that are used to treat epilepsy. One of the reasons for this has to do with how your body breaks down (metabolizes) drugs.

Cytochrome P450 (CYP450) is an enzyme your body uses to break down some drugs. CBD oil can block CYP450. That means that taking CBD oil with these drugs could make them have a stronger effect than you need or make them not work at all.

Drugs that could potentially interact with CBD include:

  • Anti-arrhythmia drugs like quinidine
  • Anticonvulsants like Tegretol (carbamazepine) and Trileptal (oxcarbazepine)
  • Antifungal drugs like Nizoral (ketoconazole) and Vfend (voriconazole)
  • Antipsychotic drugs like Orap (pimozide)
  • Atypical antidepressants like Remeron (mirtazapine)
  • Benzodiazepine sedatives like Klonopin (clonazepam) and Halcion (triazolam)
  • Immune-suppressive drugs like Sandimmune (cyclosporine)
  • Macrolide antibiotics like clarithromycin and telithromycin
  • Migraine medicine like Ergomar (ergotamine)
  • Opioid painkillers like Duragesic (fentanyl) and alfentanil
  • Rifampin-based drugs used to treat tuberculosis

Always tell your healthcare provider and pharmacist about all the medicines you take, including prescription, over-the-counter (OTC), herbal, or recreational drugs.

The interactions between these medications and CBD are often mild and you might not have to change your treatment.

However, in some cases, you might have to change medications or space out your doses to avoid a reaction. That said, never change or stop medication without talking to your provider.

Dosage and Preparation

There are no guidelines for using CBD oil. Each product works a bit differently, depending on the form.

For example, putting the oil under your tongue can produce effects more quickly than swallowing a capsule that needs to be digested.

Here are a few ways that you can take CBD oil:

  • Placing one or more drops under your tongue and holding it there for 30 to 60 seconds without swallowing. You can also use a spray that is spritz in your mouth/under your tongue.
  • Taking a capsule or chewing a gummy

There’s no “correct” dose of CBD oil. How much you take and the form you choose will depend on your needs and what you hope to get for effects. The average dose range is from 5 mg to 25 mg.

Most oils come in 30-milliliter (mL) bottles and include a dropper cap to help you measure.

That said, it’s hard to figure out the exact amount of CBD per milliliter of oil. Some tinctures have concentrations of 1,500 mg per 30 mL, while others have 3,000 mg per mL or more.

How to Calculate CBD Dose

To determine an exact dose of CBD, remember that each drop of oil equals 0.05 mL of fluid. This means that a 30-mL bottle of CBD oil will have about 600 drops in it.

If the concentration of the tincture is 1,500 mg per mL, one drop would have 2.5 mg of CBD in it. The math to figure that out looks like this: 1,500 mg ÷ 600 drops = 2.5 mg

What to Look For

CBD oil comes in different forms: isolates, broad-spectrum, and full-spectrum.

  • Isolates contain only CBD
  • Broad-spectrum oils nearly all of the components of the plan (e.g., proteins, flavonoids, terpenes, and chlorophyll), but does not have THC oils have all the compounds including THC (up to 0.3%)

Alternative medicine practitioners believe that the compounds provide more health benefits, but the is a lack of evidence to support these claims.

Remember that CBD oils are unregulated. There’s no guarantee that a product is what it claims to be on its packaging. You also can’t know for sure that it’s safe and effective.

A 2017 study reported that only 31% of CBD products sold online were correctly labeled. Most had less CBD in them than was advertised, and 21% had significant amounts of THC.

If you are interested in buying CBD products, here are a few tips to keep in mind:

  • Buy American: Domestically produced CBD oil might be a safer option than those that have been imported.
  • Go organic: Brands certified organic by the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) are less likely to expose you to pesticides and other harmful chemicals.
  • Read the product label: Even if you choose a full-spectrum oil, don’t assume that every ingredient on the product label is natural. CBD products can also have preservatives, flavorings, or thinning agents in them. If you don’t recognize an ingredient, ask the dispenser what it is or check online.

Summary

Hemp plants can be grown for different purposes. Some species are made for marijuana but others are used to make CBD products.

Unlike marijuana, CBD oil does not “get you high.” Instead, it may help relieve stress, anxiety, drug withdrawals, and nerve pain.

While there are many claims about the health benefits of using CBD oil, the evidence is lacking. A lot of studies were done with animals, not humans.

If you want to try CBD oil, you should learn about the different dosages and preparations first.

You should also know that the products are not regulated, which means you can’t know for sure that a product will work and be safe.

Before you use CBD oil, talk to your provider. If you take certain medications or have a health condition, you may not be able to use these products.

Frequently Asked Questions

It would be hard to overdose on CBD oil. Research has shown that human tolerance for CBD is very high. One study reported the toxic dose would be about 20,000 mg taken at one time.

It depends on where you live, the type of product, how it was sourced (e.g., is it from hemp or marijuana), and its intended purpose (medical or recreational). In many states, you must be 18 or 21 to buy CBD oil. Check your state’s laws.

Not necessarily. While the names are sometimes used interchangeably, hemp oil can also refer to hemp seed oil, which is used for cooking, food production, and skincare products.

CBD oil is made from the leaves, stems, buds, and flowers of the Cannabis indica or Cannabis sativa plant. It should contain less than 0.3% THC.

Hemp oil is made from the seeds of Cannabis sativa and does not have TCH in it.

How to Dose CBD Oil Properly

With so many CBD oil brands on the market, it is often difficult to know which ones are the best, and more importantly, how much CBD you should take.

CBD-rich oil comes in various concentrations and forms, and while most bottles have a label with suggested dosing, CBD oil works differently for each person. If you’ve never tried CBD or you are still trying to figure out what works best, then this article is for you. However, you should always consult with your doctor before beginning any form of routine.

Continue reading as there are a few essential things to understand about CBD oil and CBD oil dosages.

What the Research Says About CBD Oil Dosing

Research suggests that compared with many other medications, CBD is generally safe and well-tolerated.

In clinical experiments, scientists use doses of CBD that range from 20mg per day to 1500 mg per day. Even at higher doses, serious side effects from CBD in these experiments have been extremely rare.

Research suggests that compared with many other medications, CBD is generally safe and well-tolerated.

One study investigated the effects of different doses of CBD (300, 600, and 900mg) on 38 healthy human volunteers. None of the volunteers showed any noticeable effects on mood or anxiety or significant changes in blood pressure for all doses. The volunteers that took 900mg CBD had a significantly decreased heart rate four hours following the consumption of CBD. However, the value didn’t go below the healthy human heart range.

In another study investigating the longer-term effects of CBD, schizophrenic patients took CBD for 28 days with doses beginning at 200mg and increasing to 800mg. Three patients decreased their doses back to 600mg per day because of unwanted side effects. However, none of the study participants demonstrated any notable safety concerns throughout the experiment.

What Does the Research Say about CBD Side Effects?

Some worries about CBD include the potential for dangerous effects on the liver, based on a 2019 experiment showing CBD caused liver toxicity in rats.

In this experiment, scientists used the equivalent of the maximum recommended human dose for EPIDOLEX® – a CBD prescription medication – suggesting safety concerns about the liver may only be relevant for higher doses. In line with this claim, one case study demonstrated that 300mg of CBD for ten days in a human subject had no effects on the liver.

Another safety concern about CBD is the potential for causing adverse effects on reproduction. The empirical evidence for this comes from animal studies that show CBD can affect hormones and fertility.

One human experiment demonstrated that both 300mg and 600mg of CBD did not affect reproductive hormones. However, this study did not investigate the long-term effects, so the impact of different CBD doses on reproduction is still unclear.

It’s important to note that CBD oil doses used in clinical studies may differ from CBD doses found in-store or online. Studies generally use CBD isolate, which often requires much more to get the same effects as broad or full-spectrum CBD.

Although CBD may be effective or be safe in a research study, individual differences (see below) and differences in the purity of products might mean the effects aren’t the same for you.

Important Things to Know About CBD Oil Dosing

CBD dosing is not a straightforward matter. There are several different factors to consider, ranging from genetics to what condition one is hoping to treat. Here’s what you need to know:

1) Every Person Is Different, and May Require a Different Dosage

If you’ve been reading the articles on our site, you are probably familiar with the endocannabinoid system. The endocannabinoid system is extremely complex and far from understood, but we do know that every person’s physiology is different. Therefore, while the instructions on a CBD oil bottle may be informative and clear, the standard dosing may affect two different people in entirely different ways.

2) Genetics, Tolerance, and General Health

Expectations of CBD’s effects may vary. For instance, some people want relief from severe, debilitating chronic pain conditions, and others are looking to help their day-to-day anxiety. However, everyone has unique genetics, tolerance, and general health.

3) It’s Not a Miracle Cure

It’s important to understand that CBD oil is not a miracle cure. Don’t expect to take a few drops and voilà; you’re cured.

The effects of CBD oil are not instant. CBD can take time to work, and results may not happen overnight. The key is finding the right administration route and dosage, as well as maintaining consistency.

How to Calculate CBD Oil Dosage

First, you need to determine the strength of your CBD oil. To do this, you need to use the formula:

Amount of CBD per bottle (mg per bottle) ÷ volume of bottle (ml) = concentration of CBD in bottle (mg/ml).

For example, if your bottle contains 600 mg and is a 30 ml bottle then the strength of the bottle will be 20 mg/ml:

600mg ÷ 30ml = 20 mg/ml

From here, you can work out the concentration of each drop using the formula:

Concentration of CBD in bottle (mg/ml) ÷ number of drops in 1 ml = amount of CBD in each drop

The number of drops in 1 ml is usually 20 (with each drop equivalent to 0.05 ml). However, you should be able to find this value on the label of your CBD tincture bottle.

Going back to the previous example, assuming the number of drops in 1 ml is 20, each drop will contain:

20 mg/ml ÷ 20 drops = 1 mg per drop

The final step is to multiply your desired dose by the concentration of each drop using the formula:

Desired dose (mg) ÷ concentration of each drop (mg/drop) = number of drops required for dose

Once you know how to figure out how much you’re taking, the rule is to start low and go slow. Typically, it’s recommended to start with a low amount, like 10mg, and then titrate up until the desired effect is achieved.

The exception is for those taking CBD for sleep, as studies indicated that under 60mg of CBD can be more stimulating and that it requires over 60mg of CBD to help with sleep.

Recommended Dosage of CBD Oil

There are some general guidelines relating to the recommended dosage of CBD oil for specific conditions. However, there is no one-size-fits-all answer to questions like, “what is the correct CBD dosage for pain?” The reason is simple, not everyone has the same physiology, body weight, and size, or will experience identical effects after using CBD.

Therefore, rather than looking at individual, anecdotal evidence, we’ll discuss what CBD doses were effective for participants in studies relating to pain, anxiety, and sleep disorders.

CBD Dosage for Pain

Because of the varied nature of pain, it’s difficult to recommend a CBD dosage for pain.

In one study, researchers investigated the effects of CBD for various pain-related conditions in 400 different patients. Doses in the experiment ranged all the way from 40mg per day to 300 mg per day.

The researchers found that CBD was generally helpful at reducing pain and improving the patients’ quality of life.

CBD Dosage for Anxiety

Most studies investigating CBD for anxiety have used CBD isolates, with doses ranging between 300-600 mg per day.

There is some evidence to suggest that cannabinoids may have a biphasic effect when it comes to treating anxiety. A biphasic effect is when different doses have opposite reactions. In the case of CBD and anxiety, this means that whereas low doses can help reduce anxiety, high doses may actually increase anxiety.

CBD Dosage for Sleep

In one study – the researchers provided participants with either anxiety, sleep disorders, or both, with 25 mg CBD per day for a month. This dose helped improve sleep quality in 70% of patients.

If you’re using CBD to help improve sleep, it’s recommended to take a dose in the evening at least an hour before bed to allow time for the effects to kick in.

The Standard CBD Oil Dosage Manual

Now, remember, this is a very general guide.

Furthermore, it is always best to consult with your doctor before starting a CBD regimen. With that said, there are a few common dosage strategies that might work for you:

  1. Start by taking one dropper of a low-dose CBD. Ensure you are in a calm and relaxed environment; it’s advised not to participate in any strenuous activity or operate machinery. It’s also important to see how you feel as everyone reacts differently.
  2. If all goes well, but you don’t see the desired effect, increase the amount to 2 droppers per day, spread throughout the day. For example, take one in the morning and one in the evening.
  3. If you don’t experience any change, then increase at a slow rate and see how you feel.
  4. If no effect occurs but side effects set in, it may be that a different route of administration (vape, topical, etc.) is needed. Or perhaps CBD may just not work for you.

CBD Oil Dosage Recap

If you are just starting out with CBD oil, remember to start small and consult with your doctor. Fortunately, there is no established lethal dose of CBD, according to ProjectCBD, a non-profit organization dedicated to making CBD research transparent.

As with any new health product, it’s essential to know how your body reacts to CBD.

However, one should still be cautious, and as with any new health product, it’s essential to know how your body reacts to CBD. Increase the dosage gradually, and if you feel that the CBD oil isn’t positively affecting you, you should consult with a medical professional.

Once you’ve found the ideal dosage, make sure you’re using a good-quality oil. Take a look at some of the best CBD oils on the market below.

How many drops of CBD oil should I take?

You can determine how many drops of CBD oil you need to take using the formulas in our section ‘How to Calculate CBD Oil Dosage’ above.

Is it possible to take too much CBD?

Although there are no published case reports of lethal overdose from CBD to date, high doses of CBD can have unwanted side effects, such as sedation, headaches, and nausea. You can find out more about CBD side effects in this article.

Because CBD decreases blood pressure, taking CBD could cause complications relating to dangerously low blood pressure levels, such as fainting if you already have low blood pressure.

The potential interactions between CBD and certain prescription medications mean unwanted side effects may be more likely when CBD is combined with other drugs. You can learn more about CBD interactions in this article.

How many mg of CBD oil per day?

The amount of CBD oil people choose to take depends on several factors, such as the reason for use, body weight, and general health levels.

It’s always better to start with a low dose, such as 10 mg per day, and then gradually increase the dose to a level that best suits you.

What are 10 drops of 100mg CBD oil dosage?

The answer to this question will be dependent on the volume of your CBD tincture bottle and the number of drops per ml.

Standard bottles of CBD contain 30 ml, and each ml is usually the equivalent of 20 drops.

You can work out this calculation using the formulas written above.

Amount of CBD per bottle (mg per bottle) ÷ volume of bottle (ml) = concentration of CBD in bottle (mg/ml)

So the concentration of CBD in a 30ml bottle will be:

100mg ÷ 30ml = 3.3 mg/ml

You then need to work out the amount of CBD in each drop.

Concentration of CBD in bottle (mg/ml) ÷ number of drops in 1 ml = amount of CBD in each drop

So if there are 20 drops in 1 ml, the equation will be:

3.3mg/ml ÷ 20 drops = 0.17 mg per drop

Therefore 10 drops will be 10 multiplied by this value, which gives a dose of 1.7 mg of CBD.

How do I know what the correct dosage of CBD oil is for me?

It’s difficult to tell what the correct dose of CBD is for various reasons, but if you begin with a small dose, you can gradually increase the amount until you find the right dose that works best for you.

NuLeaf Naturals CBD Pet Oil

Nothing’s too good for our furry companions. NuLeaf Naturals makes an excellent full-spectrum CBD pet oil from organic, high-grade hemp. This formula has one of the highest potencies we’ve come across for pets on the market, so it’s best suited for therapeutic uses and large pets.

Price/Value 4/5

The cost is reasonable for a high-potency, full-spectrum CBD product made specifically for animals at $0.08 – $0.10 per mg of CBD, depending on the bottle size you purchase. While this is on par with the average cost of CBD oils for human consumption on the market, this oil costs more than the NuLeaf Naturals products marketed for humans — pet product-markups are to be expected.

CBD Potency 5/5

There aren’t many other CBD pet oils on the market that contain 60 mg of CBD per mL. The NuLeaf Naturals CBD pet oil is relatively potent, which makes it a good choice for large pets or those with severe symptoms.

Hemp Source 4/5

The NuLeaf Naturals CBD pet oil is made with 100% organic, non-GMO industrial hemp grown in Colorado. However, it’s not USDA organic certified. We reserve 5s for USDA organic certified hemp crops.

NuLeaf Naturals CBD Pet Oil Review

Article By

People are using CBD for a wide variety of uses, including pain management, inflammation, anxiety, sleep disorders, and seizures.

Research, although limited, suggests that our furry pets can also benefit from CBD in the same way as humans. All mammals have an endocannabinoid system with which CBD interacts to maintain homeostasis (balance).

With the rising popularity of CBD for its health benefits, a flood of companies has entered the market. Our mission is to distinguish the good from the bad and make these CBD companies more accountable for the products they put on the market.

This review will focus on the CBD pet oil from NuLeaf Naturals to help you determine if this product could benefit your pet.

We’ll examine the price and ingredients as well as the company’s manufacturing processes, so you can make a confident purchase.

Overview: NuLeaf Naturals CBD Pet Oil

The NuLeaf Naturals CBD Pet Oil is made with a full-spectrum extract, which maintains the cannabinoid profile and potency of the hemp plant, including THC (within the federal limit of 0.3%). Don’t worry about getting your pet high — THC in this low concentration won’t produce any psychoactive effects.

The cannabinoid diversity of full-spectrum extracts leverages the benefits of the entourage effect for a more holistic form of CBD supplementation, which makes it a popular choice for therapeutic uses.

The NuLeaf Naturals CBD Pet Oil comes in one ultra-high potency of 60 mg of CBD per mL. A little will go a long way with this product, and it’s best used diluted.

The CBD Pet Oil is available in three sizes:

The research regarding CBD and animals is currently limited. While CBD is considered safe for mammals, it’s possible to have too much.

CBD’s side effects are mild in nature, causing digestive discomfort, sedation, and low blood pressure. Therefore, we highly encourage you to consult a veterinarian before giving your pets CBD.

Pros & Cons

Key Features & Benefits

1. Affordable High-Potency Pet Oil

If you have a pet that needs high daily doses of CBD, the NuLeaf Naturals pet oil is a solid choice.

Many other CBD pet products on the market contain well below 30 mg of CBD per mL. At 60 mg of CBD per mL, the NuLeaf Naturals CBD pet oil is significantly stronger than the products most other companies are offering.

2. Full-Spectrum

This full-spectrum extract is of high quality. The Certificate of Analysis shows this extract to have human-grade standards.

We don’t come across too many full-spectrum CBD oils on the market for pets. Our current understanding is that full-spectrum oils are superior in delivering therapeutic benefits. Full-spectrum extracts maintain the hemp plant’s natural phytochemicals, offering a more holistic CBD supplementation.
