Vadim saw a major problem in the industry: consumers are confused and can't see through the haze of hype on CBD all over the internet. The CBD School was created to educate consumers on how to use CBD and where to find the best products for their needs.

Vadim is the CBD Professor. For the last two decades, he has dedicated himself to researching the benefits of the cannabis plant. But it wasn't enough to learn about the benefits for himself—he wanted to share them with the world.

Thus the CBD School was created.

We discuss:

  • Marijuana propaganda 
  • CBD School and how it started
  • Promoting CBD sites
  • What is CBD? Where CBD come from?
  • Difference from hemp, Marijuana
  • What’s the amount of CBD in Hemp Oil? What’s the amount of CBD in Cannabis Oil?
  • and much more!
