If it is classified as a phytocannabinoid it means that it is derived from a plant, in this case it is the “Cannabis sativa L plant”, while the cannabinoids that are found naturally inside the body are called endocannabinoids.
Cannabinoids can also be synthesized through chemical reactions in a laboratory for specific use and scientific analysis.

What is a controlled therapy?

This is called controlled therapy, which allows for correct and measured dosage. In these therapies, the milligrams administered in each case can be specified. This can be achieved with products such as cannabidiol oil, where various producers have strict quality control and certify the percentage of CBD in their products by means of analyses.

If you have a higher volume intake, you are not at risk of overdosing. Likewise, it is recommended that you follow the guidelines indicated by each manufacturer.
