This is a tricky question, because Cannabidiol comes in two main forms. Cannabidiol can come from medical marijuana plants or from industrially grown hemp plants. Both are varieties of Cannabis, but they are grown for different purposes, and each one comes with its own legal status.
In addition to the above complication, you must also consider your country or state to figure out whether Cannabidiol is legal in your area. But first, let’s discuss the two types of Cannabidiol.
Cannabidiol from Medical Marijuana
The first form of Cannabidiol is extracted from medical marijuana plants. These plants are grown to be high in CBD but have varying amounts of the psychoactive compound THC. They are sold to licensed dispensaries and prescribed by doctors for particular conditions in places where marijuana is regulated — like the US.
While medical marijuana is grown to be high in CBD for the treatment of specific ailments, the THC content can vary dramatically, sometimes getting as high as the CBD content.
The problem with medical marijuana (besides the possibility of getting a strain that is high in THC) is that it’s not currently legal everywhere. In the United States, you must be living in certain states and obtain a prescription from a doctor to receive medical marijuana.
Cannabidiol from Industrial Hemp
Cannabidiol oil that comes from industrial hemp plants, like the products found on our website, are a different story. The FDA of the United States considers hemp oil (and it’s derivative CBD) to be a dietary supplement since they are made from industrial hemp plants.
If you live in the US, this means you don’t need a prescription and can legally purchase and consume Cannabidiol in any state.
Cannabidiol from industrial hemp also has the added benefit of having NO THC. This is why it’s not possible to get “high” with our products. There simply isn’t any THC.
