Is CBD now illegal?


The simple answer is not yet. but to go further into detail about this we must first look at who it is trying to make this illegal and their reasons behind it. But before all that lets look into what CBD really is.

Cannabidiol (CBD):

[ezcol_1third]Cannabidiol is the non Psychoactive part of the hemp plant that provides relief from ailments such as but not limited to pain, anxiety, and seizures. It does not give the user the feeling of being “high”. Which for a lot of users can be very relieving because they want the pain to go away but don’t want to have to feel high and lethargic.[ezcol_1third_end][/ezcol_1third_end]Chemical breakdown of CBD

The DEA: Brief Explanation Between The DEA and CBD.

On December 14th, 2016, The DEA published changes to the internal code systems that would directly specify that CBD is derived from marijuana and not from hemp.  Now what the DEA is trying to say is that CBD contains very small traces of THC that they should be able to regulate it. But in all honesty they are just setting themselves up for failure because the DEA as big as their reach goes can not overstep federal laws which protect the use of CBD under a state mandated pilot program. 

So what does this mean for you?

You will still be able to get your favorite brand of CBD at your local suppliers shop without having to feel like you are doing something illegal.  So if your the 80 year old young lady who wants to keep that hip pain where it belongs or the 26 year old office worker who’s just trying to get rid of that headache, Cannabidiol will be there for you.
