When talking about CBD, many people refer to it as cannabis oil which causes quite a bit of confusion when it comes to the legality of CBD. Here’s what you need to know…
Cannabis Oil Vs. CBD Oil
Firstly, when we talk about CBD oil, we’re actually talking about cannabidiol oil.
Cannabidiol oil is extracted from the cannabis plant.
When we talk about the cannabis plant, however, the first thing that springs to mind is marijuana and that brings up the question of legality.
The truth is that while marijuana does come from a plant in the cannabis family, the substance that makes marijuana a legal problem is THC. THC is the psychoactive compound in marijuana that causes the sensation of “being high”.
Unlike marijuana plants, hemp plants are a member of the cannabis family which contain cannabidiol but less than 0.3% THC. This means that hemp can yield cannabidiol oil without the psychoactive effects of THC.
So Is Hemp Cannabidiol Legal?
So if cannabidiol is derived from the hemp plant with less than 0.3% THC does this make it legal?
If CBD oil (that is cannabidiol NOT cannabis oil) is sourced from properly sourced hemp it is considered legal in all states. If CBD oil is sourced improperly or is sourced from a marijuana plant it is not legal if you live in a state where marijuana use is not legalized.
If you happen to live in a state where marijuana use is legal AND you have a prescription, you should still always purchase a high-quality CBD oil from a reputable source, but the oil that you purchase is not going to be flagged as illegal even if it contains THC.
