What's CBD like?
What is CBD?
CBD stands for Cannabidiol, a compound extracted from the hemp plant. The hemp plant has been around for thousands of years. Industries like textiles, paper, and fuel can use hemp. CBD is non-psychoactive (it won't get you "high").
Where does CBD come from?
The hemp plant produces a significant amount of CBD, making it the ideal candidate for extraction. The 2018 Federal Farm Bill legalized the cultivation of industrial hemp. In turn, CBD's popularity has abundantly grown since then. CBD can be extracted from the hemp plant in different ways, including using CO2, oil, or a liquid solvent like ethanol. CBD is in all sorts of products, including edibles, oils, creams, pet products, and beverages.
Are CBD products legal?
The Federal Farm Bill in 2018 allowed for the cultivation of commercialized hemp. It must contain no more than 0.3% THC. Each state is different in how they regulate how products are sold, and there may be restrictions. Please take the time to research your local laws before purchasing CBD products.
Why should I use CBD?
The FDA prohibits CBD producers from making claims on specific health conditions. The FDA is studying CBD and has not approved it as a food additive or dietary supplement. That is why we recommend you research for yourself and see what has worked for others. There are real-life testimonials and various scientific research papers you can read up on and find out what works for you. We recommend consulting your health care professional first about potential interactions or other possible complications before using any CBD product.
CBD interacts with your body's natural endocannabinoid system, which helps regulate different bodily functions.
Can I travel with CBD?
Each state can be different with how they regulate and restrict CBD. That's why we recommend checking with each state and see what's legal for you. Thankfully hemp-based CBD is permitted on a Federal level as long as it contains no more than 0.3% THC. Therefore, you can travel domestically. We recommend traveling with the original packaging to be safe. That way, you can provide validity, and you won't have any unforeseen issues.
If you're traveling internationally, you may find this to be more complicated. Each country has different laws on CBD products. Some countries can have harsh penalties, including getting arrested. To avoid these risks, please be sure to read up on your destination's laws regarding CBD. Sometimes it can be not very clear, and that's why it's essential to take your time and do thorough research. But there is good news! In some countries, CBD is not only legal but celebrated.
