CBD: health benefits without the high | 420 Beginner

Wednesday, Jan 9, 2019

Due to all the health benefits, CBD oil is looking like it will have a very bright and lucrative future. Marijuana plants contain at least 114 different cannabinoids, which are extracted from the plant when CBD oil is produced. Once the glands are separated from the plant, they can be formulated to find the ideal ratio of cannabinoids. On its own, cannabinoids don’t make users high. Instead, CBD oil delivers a variety of health benefits.

The legal status of CBD oil is still somewhat murky, despite the recent passage of Federal laws making hemp (but not marijuana) legal in the US.  One recent explanation adds more confusion than light: “Most experts believe the Farm Bill makes it clear that consumers anywhere can legally buy these products if they’re made from low- or zero-THC hemp.”

Other articles, particularly in the financial press, tout the new law as being the goose that lays a golden egg:  “New legislation could legalize every nonintoxicating cannabinoid in marijuana plants, opening a market for sleep aids, stimulants and more.” In a recent article posted in the Wall Street Journal; “As of October, 46 states have passed some kind of CBD legalization; the use and sale of the compound is not explicitly allowed under federal law, but the law is not often enforced.” Beside CBD oil there are a few other cannabinoids to take notice of. Among those are THC-V, CBN, THC-A and CBG. Basically, if it is pure CBD oil with only a tiny amount of THC, it is probably legal.  But making your own can still be risky in a lot of ways.  Better to buy your CBD from a reputable manufacturer, like our friends at Made By Hemp.
