CBD Laws in the United States
CBD is short for cannabidiol, a non-psychoactive cannabinoid found in various different species of cannabis plants. CBD extracts from cannabis plants are now used in all kinds of safe-to-use products from tasty gummies to topical creams. However, whether it’s legal or not often comes down to the state you’re from and which plant it comes from.
CBD products derived from hemp are legal across the United States thanks to the 2018 Farm Bill. Hemp-based CBD products are now available in many stores across the country. You can also buy CBD online. Some states, such as Texas, still forbid the sale of CBD, but in most states, you can buy and use it without any issue whatsoever.
Some CBD products use extracts from marijuana plants. These often contain higher levels of THC and will be labeled differently. In order to use these, you either need to be an adult in a legal marijuana state or have a medical prescription. Because of this, most people use hemp-based CBD products due to its wide accessibility.
