Cannabidiol oil (or CBD oil for short) is fast being recognized as a wonder fluid – and an easy way to ingest CBD. Because the oil, at most, contains trace elements of THC, it does not create a “high.” However, it has plenty of positive health impacts. CBD interacts with the body through the endocannabinoid system positively impacting mood, sleep, appetite, pain and immune response. There are no known adverse side effects.
Most people consume CBD oil by using a dropper to insert it under the tongue.
It is best stored in a cool, dark place.
The growing understanding of the beneficial impact of the same has led noted celebrities to publically speak about their use of CBD oil for explicitly medically related reasons.
The comedienne, actress and host of the popular American TV talk show The View is also a well-known cannabinoid advocate and consumer. She has used a vape pen to consume hash oil for a long time to treat her own health issues.

She uses CBD at times when she cannot consume THC and actively promotes her CBD-based products.

While traveling through Frankfurt airport, police found cannabinoids in his luggage. After he proved that they were prescribed by a doctor and were for medical use, he was allowed to go on his way.
