There are many cannabidiol (CBD) products that are readily available in legal markets in 2019, but there are also many differences of opinion regarding how CBD works, what it is useful for, how to use it, and how much to take.
The passage of the 2018 Farm Bill and the FDA’s newfound quest to establish a regulatory system for cannabinoids have also helped contribute to the confusion regarding what is and is not currently legal.
As part of an ongoing effort to help educate the public and provide accurate information about cannabis, Americans for Safe Access (ASA) has released the Patient’s Guide to CBD, which takes an in-depth look at CBD and the current science and culture surrounding it.
The 25-page guide provides information about the endocannabinoid system, CBD’s chemical structure, which forms are available for use, current research, discussing cannabinoids with a physician, and other related topics.
