Is CBD Legal?

CBD is extracted from the leaves of the cannabis plant. The leaves and seeds of the hemp and cannabis plants have been excluded from the purview of the Narcotic Drugs and Psychotropic Substance (NDPS) Act because of their medicinal uses and India’s social and religious customs. So, just like consumption of bhang is not prohibited under any law in India, the use of CBD oil is also not prohibited. Licensed sale of cannabinoids, including CBD oil and tincture, is permitted in India under the NDPS Act, the Drugs and Cosmetics Act.

How much CBD can I take?

CBD dosage must be personalized to each person and their individual needs. If someone is taking CBD for general wellness reasons, their dose wouldn’t need to be as high as someone taking it to help manage chronic pain. It also depends on how high the CBD concentration is in the product you use.

Is CBD Psychoactive?

No, CBD does not cause the same psychoactive “high” caused by its counterpart THC.

Does CBD Cause Negative Side Effects?

Overall, no, CBD does not cause negative side effects in most people. Most people don’t experience any negative side effects at all, and the few that some people mention include feeling a bit drowsy or slightly nauseous. Often these are experienced when a dosage needs to be adjusted to a smaller dose.
