Is It Necessary to Have a Medical Prescription to Use CBD?

During the last few years there have been more openness towards the use of CBD (cannabidiol) for the treatment of diseases and various symptoms. It is an option that may help you recover your health and bring more wellness to your life, especially if you take it under a doctor’s prescription.

Cannabidiol (CBD) is a chemical component of the Cannabis sativa plant, also known as hemp, its regulation depends on the regulations of each region; for example, in Colombia it has been legalized for medical purposes under prescription, in countries like France and Spain it can be acquired without prescription and only if it has less than 0.3% of THC and in some places in the United States, such as California, you can use it without restriction.

The medical prescription of CBD is necessary not only because of the existing regulations, but also to use it safely and more effectively by preventing, for example, the inhibition of the action of other drugs you are taking.
