It Depends! Not every CBD company is made legal and it depends on many factors.
Hemp-derived CBD is legal in all 50 states thanks to the Farm Bill that was passed in 2018. CBD has been legal for only 3 years, and with the industry being so new and unregulated, it’s important to pick a CBD company carefully.
Hemp-Derived CBD vs. Marijuana-Derived CBD
What’s the difference? Well, it’s a pretty simple indicator. The marijuana plant gets you “high.” Scientifically speaking, marijuana has the molecule refereed to as “Delta-9,” which is what “THC” originates from. Although both marijuana and hemp are among the same plant family, they bring different characteristics. Besides the marijuana plant having that physiological high, it’s also the plant that’s not federally legal around the United States.
On the other hand, the hemp plant is legal federally in every state of America. The main reason as to why the hemp plant has more of a political stance is because it contains less than 0.3% of THC. If there were more than that percentage, it would be considered marijuana, making it illegal in a handful of states. The Hemp plant itself is usually cultivated into hemp oil and CBD oil, as well as CBD flower, giving more of a therapeutic feel WITHOUT the high. Most people who don’t want to feel that buzz of being on cloud 9 usually prefer using CBD oil for its benefits, and for keeping a job, since we’re being honest.
Both plants typically have the same benefits as to what they help with throughout the body. Whether it’s easing body aches, sleep problems, and over all stress, you can possibly benefit from plant medicine like marijuana and hemp. Knowing the difference between which plant is legal and which is not, should definitely be top priority.
