It’s important to understand that there is currently no scientific research proving that CBD oil, in any form, can cure diseases. However, there are numerous case studies and testimonials from patients who have claimed that it has helped them with the following conditions:
If the CBD was derived from hemp or from marijuana.
Now, marijuana and hemp are both members of the cannabis family, so they do share a lot of characteristics. There is, however, a crucial difference between the two. That is the amount of psychoactive Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) each plant produces. While marijuana can contain up to 30% THC, hemp contains no more than 0.3% THC. In other words, marijuana can get you really high, while hemp has such a low amount of THC, that it would be impossible to get high off it. Because hemp has no psychoactive effects, the law has no problem with it. Hemp products are completely legal and available in all types of different industries and stores across America. Marijuana, on the other hand, is much a different story. And this is why the source of a CBD product is crucial to its legality.
The Legality of Hemp-Derived CBD
So is CBD legal? If we’re talking about hemp-derived CBD, then the answer is yes. Now, the keyword here is “hemp-derived.” Because CBD from hemp has no psychoactive effects, the purchase, sales, or possession of hemp CBD products are completely legal in all 50 States. Because hemp is sometimes confused with the marijuana plant, there is still some stigma towards hemp-derived CBD, but from a legal perspective, hemp-derived CBD is completely legal and enjoys the rights of any other legal product.
The Legality of Marijuana-Derived CBD
Marijuana-derived CBD products, on the other hand, don’t enjoy the same luxuries. Because it has been derived from THC-rich marijuana, marijuana-derived CBD, even its isolated from, is considered as a byproduct of marijuana and is judged accordingly. In some states, marijuana-derived CBD is completely legal, while in others, it is completely illegal, but in most states, its a bit of a mixed bag, each state having CBD-specific laws. While this political indifference has caused a ton of confusion for consumers, there are a handful of states where hemp-derived and marijuana-derived CBD are completely legal, which just might lead to a nationwide shift for CBD legality.
There are different ways that companies test for drugs. Most work-place drug screens and tests target delta9-tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and do not detect the presence of Cannabidiols or other legal natural hemp-based constituents.
All of the products listed on The CBD Palace contain 0.3% THC or less. However, ingesting high volumes of CBD over a long period of time, even with this low volume of THC may pose the risk of being detected on a drug test. For this reason, we work with a supplier, Blue Moon Hemp, whose products are tested at 0.0001% THC.
Even with this low amount of THC, we do not guarantee you will pass a drug test, but, the chances of failing are drastically reduced with products containing 0.0001% THC.
