The legality of Cannabidiol (CBD) from hemp is based on a 2004 unanimous ruling by the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals, which determined that the DEA “cannot regulate naturally-occurring CBD not contained within or derived from marijuana, i.e., non-psychoactive hemp is not included in Schedule I. The DEA has no authority to regulate drugs that are not scheduled..”
Can I get high by taking CBD?
One of the key differences between CBD and THC is whether the cannabinoid will cause a euphoric psychoactive effect, or “high,” when consumed. THC does, but CBD does not elicit a high feeling. The naturally low-THC hemp plant is a non-psychoactive form of cannabis. You get the amazing health benefits of CBD without the “high” of THC marijuana.
What is CBD?
CBD is a natural-occuring extract from high-CBD, low-THC hemp. Medical marijuana products are usually made from plants with high concentrations of psychoactive tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). In contrast, hemp contains only trace amounts of THC, and these CBD hemp oil products are non-psychoactive.
Cannabidiol (CBD) is just one of over 100 cannabinoids presently identified in the cannabis plant and is the second most abundant cannabinoid in marijuana after THC. In hemp, however, THC is only present in trace amounts, while CBD dominates the plant’s makeup. CBD interacts with our naturally occurring systems, but is non-psychotropic. In other words, it doesn’t cause a “high.” This makes it a safer, less controversial alternative, while still offering significant health benefits.
What are the benefits of CBD?
CBD interacts with the body through the endogenous cannabinoid system (ECS) or endocannabinoid system. First discovered in the late 1980’s, the endocannabinoid system regulates the body’s homeostasis, or general state of balance, impacting such functions as mood, sleep, appetite, hormone regulation, and pain and immune response. Like an acrobat on a highwire, as the environment around us impacts our normal balance, the endocannabinoid system “corrects” by mediating our body’s reaction to keep us level.
While its effects will be slightly different between cases, individuals taking CDB commonly experience benefits including pain relief, increased focus, emotional stability, and reduced stress.
Are there side effects of taking CBD?
CBD is thought to be well-tolerated and safe for human consumption. There have been some reports of dry mouth, low blood pressure, lightheadedness, and drowsiness, the health information site reports.
CBD is considered to be safe and non-toxic for humans and even some pets to take, even at high amounts
Is CBD legal to use in my state?
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.
