There has been a major CBD movement in this country over the past multiple to more than four years.
The government solidified the legality of using CBD plus hemp in early 2018 with new legislation.
Before then, hemp in the US was kneeling in a legal gray area. The 2014 Farm Bill stated that CBD made from legally compliant “hemp plants” was okay to produce plus sell commercially. The 2018 Farm Bill solidified this transfer of power, plus defined “hemp” as a cannabis plant with less than 0.3% of THC inside while anything else would remain classified as “marijuana.” Despite all of the unique distinctions, it’s hard to tell the 2 apart. Although real marijuana often has a fierce, dank aroma that isn’t quite possible with hemp varieties, most cops wouldn’t be able to tell the difference. You entirely would never want to be smoking a hemp joint while behind the wheel of a car unless you’re looking for a DUI or DWI charge. Much of the CBD sold in local stores has dubious origins anyway. Most of this stuff isn’t lab inspected to make sure there aren’t residual solvents or pesticides left over from the first extraction process. If I ever want CBD products to supplement our marijuana, I get all of our hemp products plus CBD from an online store that grows their own hemp in an organic greenhouse. Once the mature hemp flowers are harvested then dry-cured, samples are sent to a lab for purity testing before they are sold to clients. Every single batch of my CBD from this store features a lab report clearing it for any harmful contaminants. It also confirms that the total THC level is compliant plus below 0.3% at all times.
