Shopping for CBD oil is quite a sketchy experience.
Brands use overly vague language on their sites, like “CBD helps with homeostasis” or “daily wellness.” You’ll find it extremely hard to find what benefits hemp extracts actually offer. They won’t tell you how much CBD to take (or even what’s recommended).
