Frequently Asked Questions


What is CBD?

CBD is an abbreviation for cannabidiol which is a chemical compound  found naturally in the cannabis plant. It contains untraceable amounts  of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), the principal psychoactive element in  marijuana which means you will NOT get you “high” when using CBD. You can find any and everything you would want to know about this compound by checking out CBD 101

 Is CBD Legal?

Yes.First, the Agricultural Act of 2014  opened up new doors for the hemp industry by legalizing some  cultivation activities that have since allowed the industry to grow in  unprecedented ways. 

Second, the 2016 Federal Omnibus Bill allowed interstate hemp sales from being prohibited. 

Lastly, the 2018 Farm Bill was signed into law in December 2018, effectively  legalizing hemp at the federal level by removing it from the federal  list of controlled substances and classifying it as an agricultural  commodity.

As of 2019, there are only three states with restrictions on all  cannabis and cannabis-derived (hemp) products. These are Idaho, Nebraska, and  South Dakota. It is crucial  and your responsibility to  know how hemp-derived CBD extracts are treated in your state.
