The Truth About CBD
Although still highly regulated, the 2018 Farm Bill legalized the cultivation, processing and distribution of industrial hemp for commercial purposes. Defined as a cannabis sativa plant containing not more than 0.3% THC, industrial hemp was removed from the list of Schedule 1 controlled substances and is now categorized as an agricultural commodity.
Hemp derived cannabinoid or CBD oil is non-psychoactive and does not cause psychotropic or euphoric effects. Proponents claim it can soothe anxiety, stress, pain, and insomnia without getting consumers high, and you can now find it in everything from moisturizers, lattes, and vitamins to cookies, gummies, teas, beer, ice cream, massage oils, and dog treats.
