How much CBD should I take?
Because each person’s body and health condition is unique, it is difficult to set a predetermined dosage that is right for everyone. For severe symptoms, a higher dose may be required while mild symptoms won’t need as much. We recommend a consultation with your doctor or health professional to determine an amount right for you.

Hemp and marijuana essentially come from the same plant family, cannabis sativa. The main difference between the two is their level of Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) - the illegal, psychotropic cannabinoid. According to the Agricultural Act of 2014, the Obama Administration describes legal hemp plants as containing less than 0.3% THC which also makes cannabinoids extracted from hemp, such as Cannabidiol (CBD), legal as well.
