Moving on to commonly asked questions…
Q: What exactly is CBD? What does it do? and what type of CBD does exist in the market?
Cannabidiol (CBD) is another compound found in products based on hemp/cannabis. Apart from THC, there is CBD, CBG, CBN and 100 + Cannabinoid compounds. It has some promising effects in terms of relaxing anxiety, stress, depression, epilepsy, and many other ailments too.
Q: How many different types of products exist?
At the moment in the Indian market, there are three different types of CBD products.
- First, we have Full Spectrum CBD oil. Each and every component is included in the CBD oil including THC, however, the THC amount is 0.3% or lesser as per the NDPS Act.
- The second one is the broad spectrum. This particular compound contains CBD and other cannabinoids including THC but in very very less amounts. Micro traces will be found inside the broad spectrum CBD oil. It is also accessible and is available in India right now.
- The third one is the CBD isolate. It is pure 100% CBD.
Q: For what reason do we have these three types?
Every individual reacts differently. Some people have reactions to THC. Some prefer to have less THC in the compound because they wish not to get high. Some are not accustomed to certain Cannabinoids. According to their preferences, CBD products have been introduced in the market. So, globally these are the three types of CBD available in the market from full spectrum, broad spectrum and isolate.
Q: How to procure CBD?

Q: How is Medical Cannabis different?
Cannabis that we see in the United States, UK, and America, the medical Cannabis is dedicated to mainstream Cannabis. But here in India in terms of medical Cannabis, there is a slight difference, because the Cannabis medication is based on ayurvedic formulation.
Q: Why is it available in Ayurvedic formulation?
Ayush ministry wishes to promote ayurvedic medication. It is something to agree with because the ayurvedic medication is mostly plant-based medication, it contains other benefitting elements.
