Within this fast-growing, cannabis oil industry is a new variety of marijuana products gaining its own equally quick rise in popularity: cannabidiol hemp oil, or, also well known as, CBD hemp oil. These increasingly demanded hemp extracted products are available for purchase online and delivered straight to your front door, or at retailers in all 50 states. How could this be possible you may wonder?
The US Farm Bill of 2014 classified industrial hemp as containing less than 0.3% THC on a dry-weight basis. So any CBD products that contain less than 0.3% THC can be shipped anywhere, like to your doorstep conveniently, thanks to this U.S. Federal law.
Unlike medical marijuana products, CBD hemp oil is made from high-CBD and low-THC hemp. Medical cannabis products are commonly produced from marijuana plants with high concentrations of psychoactive tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). Because hemp contains minuscule trace amounts of THC, these hemp oil products are non-psychoactive. In other words, they will not get you high. These lower levels make CBD a safer, less controversial alternative, while still offering significant health benefits.
With there being over 85 cannabinoids presently identified in the cannabis plant, Cannabidiol (CBD) is just one of the many. It comes in second to THC, which is the most abundant cannabinoid know to man. However, CBD dominates the plant’s makeup. THC is only present in trace amounts. Cannabinoids can have multiple health benefits. CBD can better your body’s natural regulation of the central nervous, immune and endocannabinoid systems.
