I do not know alot about it so excuse me if my explanation is not to par but there is alot of information on the internet.
CBD's are molecules extracted from cannabis without the psychotropic effects that THC has. It seems to be the new wonder drug curing many people with problems caused by autism, cerebral palsy, PTS, and many other disorders. They have directly linked autism to irregulations in endocannabinoids and the CBD receptors in the brain. It is legal but since the FDA refuses to test it there can not be any scientific studies on it that can be administered into the department of health sciences but it is by far the leading medicine in peoples testimonies with many tear jerking stories of children speaking or walking for the first time after taking it.

I do not know, I never heard of it. But I would not be surprised if it was. I saw some for pets. I think its used widely for dogs with seizures.

The hemp-derived CBD oil (defined as oil processed from industrial hemp that has been bred to keep an ultra-low THC content but higher CBD content, and then in some cases refined further to eliminate much of the non-CBD content of the oil) is legal in the USA right now.

Marijuana-derived CBD oil (defined as oil processed from marijuana to have a low THC content, higher CBD content, or some mix between the two) is illegal under federal law but legal under the laws of some states.

The absurd thing is that both kinds of oil are derived from the same genus of plant - cannabis, and often from the same species of plant (most often Cannabis Sativa, but also some times from C. Indica, C. Ruderalis, or a hybrid between two or three of these species). The only real difference is the history of production and the amount of THC content. --- But I'm not complaining. I've had reasonably good results from the hemp-derived CBD oil, which I'm very grateful for. It has helped with my anxiety, depression and sensory issues.

What is the cost like in the USD of hemp derived oil?

Hemp derived CBD oil? I don't know if there's a difference in price with the genus of the plant...but in my case it's about its about $50 for a 30ml bottle from a dispensary, 250mg cbd in a bottle. I've seen the oil cheaper but its largely sold through dispensaries.

My mother got the oil and I tried cdb heavy buds (Remedy). I didn't notice any decrease in anxiety, depression or really anything with the cbd buds. Normal THC does a better job at that, imo :mrgreen:
I'm going to try seeing if a ratio of the two works better.

How long would that one 30ml bottle last you? Is that like 1ml a dose? How many do doses a day would you say? I just wanted to get a rough understanding of how costly cbd oils are, at least in the US. Thanks in advance for any responses.

In my experience, the CBD oil derived from marijuana works far better than that derived from hemp. In fact, I couldn't see any help from hemp derived CBD oil. The oil I use comes from marijuana and has no THC and can be used without fear of impairment. The feds are finally allowing experiments with quality controlled Federally produced marijuana. The results could start coming soon.

I've been wanting to try cbd oil, but not sure where or what brand to get. Once in a blue moon I'll use cannibis but I never know how I'll react to it, as it tends to amplify my senses and cause paranoia. I've been treating my anxiety using kratom for a couple years but I've grown somewhat tolerant of it unfortunately.

Where do you live? That will determine where or if you can get it.

I think its legal where I live (VA), but I REALLY don't want to walk into a headshop. I rather buy online but haven't done much research on the best brand or vendor. I just wanted to try it since the legal status of kratom is being threatened right now, plus my tolerance.
