With researchers regularly discovering the potential therapeutic benefits of cannabidiol (CBD), people facing debilitating conditions or diseases are increasingly interested in learning how they can legally obtain the healing cannabinoid.
Those looking to integrate CBD into their health care regimens should be happy to learn that CBD is actually readily available and very easy to obtain legally.
CBD Hemp Oil Available in Most Major Markets
CBD oil derived from imported hemp is legal to purchase, import and consume in all 50 U.S. states and in over 40 countries. While it remains illegal to grow hemp in America, with exceptions being made for pilot and research programs through the 2014 Farm Bill, CBD hemp oil products are legal under federal law. This means that in most cases they can be obtained without the need for a prescription or special permit. Individual state laws are dynamic and some states have passed laws regulating hemp-derived CBD. Legal hemp is classified here in the U.S. as containing a tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) content of less than 0.3 percent by dry weight.
As you explore CBD oil products, it’s important to keep in mind that not all CBD products are the same. Do your research and find a company you trust before you buy. We’ve previously detailed a few important questions to ask about any cannabinoid product to ensure that the CBD oil you’re consuming or giving to your family member is safe and of the highest quality, and you can read through those here.
