This is a questions that comes up a lot - and with good reason. Coming from a history of heavy government regulations and strict enforcement the topic of CBD (Cannabinoid) legality is sometimes skewed and can be confusing. However, the short answer is, YES, CBD is legal in the United States, as long as you know where it's being sourced. CBD can be derived from both Hemp and Marijuana plants, however, the major difference, and what makes CBD legal, is the amount of psychoactive Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) that each plant produces. Marijuana contains a much higher dose of THC, sometimes up to 30%, while Hemp derived CBD contains less than .3% THC. With such trace amounts of the Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) compound, it is next to impossible to get "high" off of Hemp derived CBD products making it's use legal in the US. This is supported in accordance to the "2014 Farm Bill" stating that industrial Hemp can be grown and cultivated as long as it contains less than .3% THC.
