What is CBD and its potential benefits?
CBD, also known as cannabidiol oil is one of many cannabinoids found in cannabis.
Cannabis is the genus name for both marijuana and hemp, and the term itself is not necessarily interchangeable with marijuana. In fact, almost all CBD oil today comes from industrial hemp, which contains negligible amounts of THC, which is the cannabinoid responsible for causing a high. Most strains of agricultural hemp are rich in CBD while only having less than 0.03 percent THC, making them perfect for extracting CBD oil.
Some people use it to reduce nausea, anxiety, or depression. Also people use to relieve pain, alleviate epilepsy and reduce cancer-related symptoms.
CBD products that don't contain THC fall outside the scope of the U.S. Drug Enforcement Agency's (DEA) Controlled Substances Act, which means CBD products are legal to sell and consume as long as they don't have THC. That's likely one of the reasons why CBD products, including CBD oil, are becoming more socially acceptable and increasingly popular. In 2016, Forbes reported that CBD products are expected to be a $2.2 billion industry by 2020.
Is it legal in my state?
The 2018 Farm Bill includes a provision that legalizes the cultivation of hemp (cannabis with less than 0.3 percent THC) in large part because of the popularity and driving economic force of CBD.
Growing hemp is now a legitimate agricultural enterprise in the United States. But extracting CBD-rich oil from hemp biomass and marketing CBD oil concentrates and isolates for ingestion and inhalation steps on Big Pharma’s toes and is frowned upon by the DEA and the FDA.
How do I know I'm buying the best quality?
The best companies do a few things to ensure that their customers receive only top-quality CBD Oil. First, we provide clearly-labeled packaging on all of our CBD oil products, including our CBD edibles, CBD vapes, and CBD creams. We also offer independent third-party lab reports for all of our CBD oil products so that consumers know exactly what’s in the bottle. Moreover, we have a customer experience team ready to help answer any of your questions should you need anything along the way.
Is the source of your CBD oil important?
When purchasing CBD oil, you also want to make sure that you know from where it is sourced. We source all of our CBD oil from soil rich hemp farms in Kentucky, Colorado, and Scandinavia. Also, the best CBD oil is extracted with a process called supercritical CO2 extraction which retains all of the naturally occurring beneficial molecules found in the hemp plant.
