One of the most popular subjects in the news of late has been that of the legalization and use of CBD Oil in the USA. We’ll talk a little more about what CBD oil is in a minute – and why you might want to use it – but first to answer the question posed in the title – is it legal in Colorado?
In fact, Colorado was one of the first states to allow the use of medical cannabis – and subsequently CBD oil – so the answer is yes: you can buy CBD oil in Colorado. In fact, you can buy it in all states of the USA as long as it complies with certain requirements: it must be made from ‘industrial hemp’ or may be made from hemp in Europe, and imported.
Why are these requirements important? It’s to do with what CBD oil is, and the controversy that has surrounded it, so let’s have a closer look at what it’s all about.
CBD Oil Explained
What is CBD Oil? CBD is short for Cannabidiol. This is one of more than 100 chemical compounds that are found in the cannabis plant. These compounds are known as cannabinoids, and research into their uses is ongoing.
Now, the controversy surrounding the use of CBD oil stems – quite naturally – from it being extracted from the cannabis plant. We associate that plant with smoking marijuana, and the effect of getting ‘high’ that comes with it. It’s time to put a myth firmly to bed!
As we said, there are in excess of 100 chemical compounds within the make-up of the cannabis plant. One of these – known as THC or tetrahydrocannabidiol – is the element that produces the effect of getting high when smoking, the element that is psychoactive. This is not present in CBD oil. Therefore, CBD oil will not – no matter what you are told to the contrary – get you stoned!
What will it do? There are many reported benefits to CBD oil – which come from users who have arrange of different reasons for taking it – but it is important to understand that research into its effects, and why they come about, is still ongoing. Hence, while completely legal and entirely safe -after all it is a natural substance – CBD oil is yet to be passed by the relevant authorities for some uses that it is being put to. Let’s talk about why it might benefit you.
