A Quick Look at the History of CBD in Canada

Cannabidiol (CBD) is one of the most popular therapeutic substances available today. It has been used for centuries for its healing properties, and now it is being used in a variety of products, from oils and edibles to lotions and creams. With the legalization of CBD in Canada, more people are turning to this natural medicine to help treat various ailments. In this article, we’ll take a look at everything you need to know about CBD Canada so that you can make an informed decision when it comes to using CBD products.

What Is CBD?

Simply put, CBD is a chemical compound found in the cannabis plant. Unlike its cousin THC (tetrahydrocannabinol), which produces the “high” associated with marijuana use, CBD does not have psychoactive effects. Instead, it has been found to have numerous therapeutic benefits. This has made it a popular choice among those seeking relief from pain, inflammation, anxiety, and other conditions without experiencing any type of intoxication or side-effects associated with traditional treatments such as pharmaceuticals.

Is It Legal?

Yes! On October 17th 2018, recreational use of cannabis was legalized across all of Canada – making it one of the first countries in the world to do so. Along with this came the legalization of hemp-derived CBD products with 0.3% THC or less (as long as they are sold by licensed retailers). This means that in most areas, you can buy high-quality CBD products without having to worry about breaking any laws or facing legal consequences.

How Do I Take It?

The best way to take CBD depends on your individual needs and preferences as well as what form of product you have purchased. For example, if you have bought a tincture or oil then you can place 1-2 drops under your tongue and wait for 30 seconds before swallowing; alternatively if you have gotten edibles then they should be eaten just like any other food item! There are also topical creams and lotions available if you would prefer something more localized for muscle aches or skin issues etc… The main thing is that everyone responds differently so it may take some trial and error before finding what works best for you. 

Conclusion:  All in all, there’s no doubt that Cannabidiol (CBD) is an amazing substance that can offer relief from many different ailments without any psychoactive effects or side effects associated with traditional treatments such as pharmaceuticals. Now that cannabis is legal throughout Canada anyone over 18 can purchase high quality hemp derived products containing 0.3% THC or less without fear of legal repercussions – making it easier than ever before to access this remarkable natural medicine! Regardless of why you’re interested in taking CBD (whether it be for pain relief, sleep aid etc…) hopefully this article has given you enough information about how to go about doing so safely and responsibly here in Canada!
