The CBD Guide does not promote, endorse or associate the CBD Guide with any organisation (public or private). Nor do we have an opinion on any outside issues (other than CBD) relating to cannabis/THC such as legalities, pros and cons or any aspects.

We provide access to general information and facts about Cannabidiol and we try to back this information up by providing links to medical and therapeutic research and studies so you the reader can be as informed as possible in regards to the use of CBD.

Always Seek Medical Advice
