How should CBD Oil be taken? 

As its name suggests, the CBD oil by Bove Health is an oil solution with specific concentrations of CBD. It usually contains only two key ingredients: a vegetable oil and a CBD-rich cannabis flower extract.

The most commonly used vegetable oils include hemp seed oil (cold pressed) which is rich in Omega 3 and 6. As for the hemp extract, our oil contains a broad spectrum hemp extract (without THC). Other oils on the market have a filtered extract (pure CBD), while others retain their original form. There are also full spectrum options (with THC), which we do not use at Bove.

Without a doubt, Bove Health CBD oil is an all-natural product, as its ingredients come only from organically grown botanical sources.
