Also, what if you smoke or consume regular marijuana in some amount daily? Are you getting as much CBD as the CBD products or less? Is the CBD many times potentiated in dosage size?

I like rosemary chicken, it has some chemistry that is a light T-H-C style effect, not enough to get you high but enough to get some benefits of T-H-C. The chemical has some of the properties of the Cannabis on the receptors. The CBD oils do not have the properties of that chemical in Rosemary. The mellowing effect of CBD is somewhat in vegetables of different kinds and also in green tea, I like the Arizona green tea myself. It mellows me down a bit.
PipeNig®, a black pepper (Piper nigrum) extract with standardized content of (E)-β-caryophyllene. A natural source of an endo-cannabinoid CB2 receptor agonist
The endogenous cannabinoid system plays an important role in the immune response to infection. At present, two cannabinoid (CB) receptors are described: cannabinoid type 1 receptor (CB1) and cannabinoid type 2 receptor (CB2), both G-protein coupled receptors. The CB2 receptor is the peripheral receptor for CBs, due to its expression on circulating immune cells. However, studies have also found CB2 expression in the brain, such as the cerebellum and microglial cells. The CB2 receptor is involved in the attenuation of inflammatory immune responses. CB2 receptor ligands have been shown to inhibit inflammation and oedema formation, exhibit analgesic effects, play a protective role in hepatic ischaemia–reperfusion injury, and prevent experimental colitis by reducing inflammation. PipeNig® is a black pepper (Piper nigrum) liquid or powder extract produced by Biosfered (Turin, Italy) that possesses the highest content of bioactive BCP available on the market.

Because I was at my wits end, I tried CBD oil balm, on my exzema.
I have had it since I was 12. I used to use a steroid cream, it was the only other thing that worked. But then I found it thins your skin.
So I tried the oil.
While it hasn't cured it, I do not scratch in my sleep, when I use it. That in itself is a huge relief. Not waking up with bleeding skin.
I would like to try a stronger version of it, as the one I am currently using is only 50mg CBDA/CBD.
Now that we are legal here in my state, I'm going to try growing it this year, to try making my own medicines.
If they could make it relatively tasteless in a therapeutic dosage, it'd be great for an iced tea product but putting it in soda seems conflicting and kinda gross because soda is already kinda gross. Thick, dark brown sickly sweet syrup.

I know very little about CBD in particular but I see it in the news and at the stores. I don't know a single person who uses it or talks about it, and most of the people I talk to speak pretty liberally about those kinds of topics if its pertinent. That might be because they either smoke marijuana or care nothing about the plants effects whatsoever, but it has to feel similar to buying a drug in a weird way for some people.
They might wonder about it, but how would it look if they, being whoever they are, looking and acting the way that they do at their age and position doing something so out of character in poor taste and buying a trendy marijuana or "hemp" (it's not the same thing it's just the same species) product to "relax".
If anyone uses it, advocates it, or knows a fair bit about using one of those legal products, your knowledge would be really helpful here. Everyone asks "Does it work?" and the answer is complicated. When I ask does it work, I'm being realistic. If you suffer from a disorder, disease, or ailment that CBD is particularly and especially touted for, will it noticeably help with the symptoms? It's the stuff that in massive doses prevents seizures somewhat in certain seizure disorders and illnesses that have seizures, am I right or off on that?
My theoretical question would be: In your educated opinion, do you think over the counter use of CBD would therapeutically help for any serious ailment. If the THC "just gets you high" and CBD "isn't psychoactive", wouldn't the effects of THC in medical marijuana be for the mentally related symptoms, the physical pain requiring a potent psychoactive effect? What is the CBD doing in medical marijuana for a patient versus the THC and how does that trickle down into the stuff at the gas station and vape shop.
