While much of the research into CBD is in early stages, studies are finding that CBD oil may help treat numerous ailments and diseases.
IS BUYING CBD LEGAL?
If you are in a state where MMJ is legal, any CBD product (whether it comes from hemp or marijuana) is legal. Outside of these legalized states (including shipping from legal to non-legal states), things are less clear. According to ProjectCBD.org, “Federal law prohibits U.S. farmers from cultivating hemp as a commercial crop, but the sale of imported, low-THC, industrial hemp products is permitted in the United States.” Technically, this means that as long as the CBD product (oil, vape, topical, etc) is produced from the seeds and stalk of the industrial hemp plant (with less than 0.3% THC), it is permissible to buy, sell, and ship across state lines.
DO CBD PRODUCTS GET YOU HIGH?
Rest assured, CBD will not get you high. It's non-intoxicating.
WHAT IS CBD?
CBD stands for cannabidiol. It is one of over 60 active chemical compounds (or ‘cannabinoids’) in the marijuana plant.
WHERE DOES CBD COME FROM?
Marijuana and hemp are two different varieties of cannabis that come from the same species of plant (Cannabis sativa L). In general, CBD is found abundantly in both. However, it’s important to note that CBD is typically found in the seeds and stem of marijuana - not in the flowering buds (which is the part that you smoke). The hemp plant is an entirely different strain of cannabis that contains high quantities of CBD throughout (stem, buds, etc), and practically zero traces of THC.
