    Once legal, doctors, researchers, scientists will finally be able to collaborate and run trials to find effective doses. Until then it'll be left up to individuals to experiment. I'd advise for anyone not familiar with cannabis (and where it's legal) that you find a reputable source. Avoid anything not grown in a licenced grower under proper lab conditions. Otherwise who knows what you could be buying.

    I haven't yet tried using CBD but definitely will be once fully legal in Canada and various brands that I'm interested in hit the market. I look forward to it.

    What did they do to make THC non-psychoactive?! Seems strange...unless it was such a small dose, or you're a chronic from way back!

    I know there are different strains of cannabis plant. And processes to extract. So to have a controlled small amount in a single dose is enough alone to avoid the psychoactive effects.

    It's a topical balm/salve labeled "non-psychoactive" and it certainly hasn't been for me. I don't know how much THC it takes to get high with a transdermal entry point. I suppose if I tried to vape it or eat it, but then it has other ingredients like bees wax and coconut oil...probably not good to get those in one's lungs.

    THC and CBD are two separate chemicals that occur in marijuana. CBD is not "made" from THC.

    Marijuana contains at least 80 chemicals called cannabinoids. Researchers are evaluating how effective some of these cannabinoids might be in controlling symptoms of certain medical conditions. For example:


    • THC. An abbreviation for delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol, THC is the main component responsible for marijuana's mind-altering effect. It also may help treat signs and symptoms such as nausea and vomiting that are associated with a number of medical conditions.
    • Cannabinol and cannabidiol. These compounds have some of the properties of THC, but cause less psychoactive effects — the high.

    All common knowledge. I was questioning how something that includes a 1:1 relationship of CBD to THC could be "non-psychoactive", as Mize posted was the case.

    Might want to look up how much typical THC gets to the blood system. The ketamine didn't seem to.

    Was just discussing CBD in oral form with some former co-workers in law enforcement. 2ng/mL will be a warning and 5ng/mL will be impaired.

    I've read that 2ng/mL (2 nanograms per millilitre of blood) would require a person to stop smoking/ingesting etc for 5-7 days before driving.

    Useless. I have trouble, especially at night with sleep and pain and was hoping an oral dosage of CBD would help.

    The ketamine didn't seem to and I'd be more worried about the rave drug over weed.
