What is CBD  Oil?

Mike about Money | What is CBD oil

CBD Oil is the fastest growing natural remedy on the market today and for a good reason.  By tapping into the endocannabinoid receptors in the human body, CBD can provide relief for chronic pain, anxiety, inflammation, depression, sleep issues and many other conditions. Learn more about possible pain relief.


Cannabidiol is made from the hemp plant. But not just any old hemp plant. Good CBD oil is made from high CBD, low THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) hemp plants.


Unlike Marijuana based products that are produced from different plants containing high amounts of THC and are considered illegal. However, because Cannabidiol products are derived from the purposely grown hemp plant, there are only trace amounts of THC. THC is the psychoactive ingredient found in Marijuana based products. There are currently over 85 known cannabinoids, with THC and CBD oil being the most common in Marijuana.


​WHAT EXACTLY IS CANNABIDIOL?

CBD works WITH your body to ELIMINATE YOUR PAIN FROM WITHIN. And it goes to work quickly. After over 20,000 clinical studies, it has been proven over and over again ... The cannabinoids found in Herbalist Oils™ CBD gummies are the SAME compounds that regulate mood and pain in the brain and body. 


Just like THC, CBD is a chemical compound extracted from Hemp plants. Both Hemp and cannabis contain cannabidiol (CBD), the non-psychoactive substance. THC, however, is the substance that gives users that “high” or psychoactive effect. CBD has many similarities to THC when it comes to potential health benefits, but the main difference is that it’s a non-psychoactive substance, so it doesn’t give a natural high to users. It also does not cause anxiety, paranoia, or the mouth and eye dryness associated with THC, even when pure CBD oil is consumed in higher concentrations. Due to these inherent advantages, most high-quality CBD oil products on the market today are extracted from the Hemp plant. THC oil, on the other hand, is derived from the cannabis plant, so it contains high levels of THC and low levels of CBD. On the other hand, industrially produced Hemp contains higher concentrations of CBD with only trace amounts of THC, so it’s safer and offers fewer symptoms for users.

Research reveals that
pure CBD oil andCBD Gummies can is an effective treatment option with a wide array of natural health properties. Studies are still ongoing about the other positive characteristics of CBD, but it has been proven that the consumption of this compound is relatively safe. Just as important, CBD is also legal in all 50 states without a prescription.


Cannabis oil, however, does not enjoy the same legal umbrella due to its THC content and psychoactive properties. Therefore, users who purchase or use THC or Cannabis oil in states where marijuana is illegal may be breaking the law.


Is CBD Federally Legal?


CBD oil can be produced from either marijuana or industrial hemp, both of which are varieties of the cannabis plant. Although both marijuana and hemp contain CBD, CBD extracts from each of these plants can be entirely different. You may be wondering how they are different. In short, marijuana extracts are low in CBD and rich in THC, the compound responsible for inducing the “high” associated with marijuana. Hemp, on the other hand, is rich in CBD content but contains virtually no THC.

For decades, laws had grouped hemp and marijuana in the same category, conflating both plants and confusing the public. All of this changed in 2018 with the passing of the Agriculture Improvement Act. Also known as the
2018 Farm Bill, the new legislation removed hemp from the federal definition of marijuana and reclassified it as an industrial commodity. In other words, the bill made hemp legal at the federal level and established it is to be regulated by The Department of Agriculture rather than the Drug Enforcement Agency. As a result of the bill, hemp and hemp-derived products are completely legal nationwide, though individual states may still impose minor restrictions.

Even though CBD federal law now allows for cannabidiol to be used nationwide, it is critical that when purchasing CBD products that you buy products from reputable sources such as Herbalist Oils
. Why? Because all our CBD products are made with extracts obtained from industrial hemp ensuring Herbalist Oils CBD Gummies products comply with all legal regulations.
