Learning to Ask the Right Questions

I’m creating this post about the most asked questions online about cannabidiol to hopefully find the best answers here in a valiant effort to dispel confusion and ignorance around the subject. You may be thinking that’s a rather grandiose assumption. I would have to agree. Well I guess I should say to make an “attempt”.  Actually this is an exercise in dispelling my own ignorance around the subject. It seemed to me that it might be nice to have a reference in one place to find reliable information to quickly get up to speed without having to search around so much.

In attempting (to try) to create good content for my readers about hemp & cannabidiol I realize there is already a bunch of really good stuff out there by some very smart individuals. I’ll continue to search, review and curate the most relevant of that stuff here and in other posts for others to also keep abreast of the science, research, news and legal developments in the world of cannabis/cannabidiol.

This will be a work in progress so please don’t expect the answers to all populate at once. Also I’m a great believer in the question sometimes being more important than the immediate answer. Asking the right question about something before we make a decision around something helps our brains figure things out for us that would otherwise not even enter our minds. These will be listed out as a place to not only find answers but hopefully help others frame questions they simply might not have thought of before. The questions that have been made into links will take you to existing posts on this site & elsewhere that have already dealt with this question.

One more thing, I invite others to add to this list of questions and answers! Your input will help make this a better resource. Please put them in the comments below. Thanks in advance.
