Cannabidiol (CBD)

Cannabinoid molecule- CBD or Cannabinoid is one of 123 chemical compounds found in the hemp cannabis plant belonging to the class of molecules called cannabinoids. Of these cannabinoid compounds, CBD and THC are usually present in the highest concentrations.Cannabidiol (CBD) is one of over 100 Cannabinoids found in Cannabis Sativa L. It is a major constituent of the plant, second to tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), and represents up to 40% in its extracts. Compared with THC, Cannabidiol is not psychoactive in healthy individuals, and is considered to have a wider scope of medical applications than THC, including to epilepsy, multiple sclerosis spasms, anxiety disorders, bipolar disorder, schizophrenia, nausea, convulsion and inflammation, as well as inhibiting cancer cell growth. There is some preclinical evidence from studies in animals that suggests CBD may modestly reduce the clearance of THC from the body by interfering with its metabolism. Cannabidiol has displayed sedative effects in animal tests. Other research indicates that CBD increases alertness. CBD has been shown to reduce growth of aggressive human breast cancer cells in vitro, and to reduce their invasiveness.

The CBD or Cannabidiol molecule CBD HEMP OIL IS NOT PSYCHOACTIVE
You absolutely CANNOT get ‘high’ or intoxicated by consuming CBD Hemp Oil or any whole, raw natural product from Industrial Hemp plants for that matter. Unlike “Medical Marijuana” it does not contain the psychoactive properties of THC. Additionally it is well known in scientific research* that CBD is anti-psychoactive.

NO PERMIT OR PRESCRIPTION REQUIRED FOR CBD HEMP OIL
CBD Hemp Oil is legal everywhere in USA (and most other countries in the world), you do not require a permit or prescription to buy it.

UPDATE:

The United Nations World Health Organization has issued a report about CBD (Cannabidiol), and they state very clearly that,

“In humans, CBD exhibits no effects indicative of any abuse or dependence potential. CBD has been demonstrated as an effective treatment of epilepsy in several clinical trials…”

“There is also preliminary evidence that CBD may be a useful treatment for a number of other medical conditions.”

They don’t mention that CBD can be used as a preventative measure as well, for those that want to aim for their own optimal health.

There are unsanctioned medical use of CBD based products, BUT medicinal and other uses  are allowed IF a country chooses to modified their laws to accommodate CBD as a medicinal and/or food (not medical) product.
