First things first, what in Bob Marley’s name is CBD anyway??
There is so much confusion when it comes to marijuana these days – what’s the difference, weed is weed, right?
CBD is one of the hundreds of chemical compounds found in the marijuana plant. It’s a cannabinoid that has shown the potential for having benefits such as aiding in pain relief, hair growth, eczema treatment and even epilepsy treatment.
Unlike the well-known THC component (the part that gets you high), CBD doesn’t have this effect on the people taking it.
Is CBD Oil Addictive?
According to a report by the WHO (World Health Organization) Expert Committee on Drug Dependence, research has found that in humans, CBD exhibits no effects indicative of any abuse or dependence potential.
In other words, using raw CBD oil is not addictive, nor does it have the potential to become addictive because of its low percentage of THC (0.3% or less).
As you may or may not have heard, CBD has proven (people are seriously impressed by the results they are getting) to help with pain management, inflammation, arthritis, stress and anxiety.
CBD spray basically delivers a high-level dose of CBD into your mouth via a spray, allowing for a very effective and fast absorption. Remember that olive oil salad dressing spray your mom used to use? – well, it’s kind of like that except it’s CBD oil: in a spray bottle.
If using a spray isn’t your thing, then making use of pure CBD oil, 500mg, 300mg, 200mg or 100mg, which are available on the market already, is probably for suited to you. Dropping the oil under your tongue is the most effective way for fast absorption.
South Africa is buzzing with the movement towards marijuana and its products no longer being illegal in the country.
The Minister of Trade and Industry, Rob Davies has said that his department recognises the potential of marijuana farming for the country. According to BusinessTech, in a parliamentary Q&A session that took place in August, he also confirmed that opportunities to develop the industrial capacity and capability for medicinal cannabis and its related products would be considered.

|Not addictive, won’t make you high||It, unfortunately, does not work for everyone, however, success rates amongst its users are extremely high|
