What is CBD oil?

CBD oil is an abbreviation for cannabidiol. Being either crude or purified, it is a hemp-derived product. Despite all the rumblings lately about, CBD oil producers name its numerous benefits for health. For example:

  • Treatment for epilepsy (when prescribed);
  • Parkinson’s disease symptoms management;
  • Pain relief;
  • Anxiety decrease.

Unlike many other cannabis-derived products, CBD oil doesn’t contain THC (Tetrahydrocannabinol). That is the exact substance that leads to an altered mental status. To put it simply, CBD oil doesn’t make a user high. As a result, selling it is less risky than marketing marijuana or hashish themselves. 

Where is CBD oil legal?

Even though CBD oil doesn’t make one high, some countries still ban its selling and usage. Thus, clarify your geo-preferences not to get yourself in trouble with the law. As stated by Endoca, you can freely market CBD oil in the following countries:
