CBD: what we’re all about, what so many people have taken to using and loving, what’s been claimed to be the holy grail that can help and heal whatever ailment you may have… not only is it hot at the moment and gaining popularity, but so many places are picking up the pace to legalize it.
But the most important question then is, if it’s legal in so many places, is it legal where you live? And what kinds of CBD are allowed in your country of residence? These answers can vary too, if you live in the U.S., where each state has their own laws about the permissible limits to CBD.
What is CBD?
CBD is cannabidiol. It naturally occurs in marijuana and is also naturally non-intoxicating and non-additive, so it’s not habit forming at all! This means it doesn’t contain THC, which is the stuff that gets people high. There are some CBD products depending on the type you are looking at that do contain THC, but it’s at such little quantities that you reap the benefits of the stuff more than you’ll ever get high!
Speaking of, CBD comes with numerous benefits so depending on what problem you’re hoping to solve, any cannabidiol product you buy is sure to be a great alternative additive to your daily routine.
We always say CBD is pretty much legal everywhere too, which is the greatest thing about it. Because it’s not marijuana, loads and loads of states and countries are changing their laws regarding what’s allowed for consumption and what’s not. With this huge wave of positive and pro-cannabis sentiment globally, CBD is on the track to being legal literally everywhere – and hopefully soon!
So where is CBD legal and to what extent?
There are three ways we can look at CBD legality. The first is where it’s completely legal, the second is where you’d need a prescription for it, and the third being, of course, completely illegal. We mentioned before where you’re allowed to fly in and out of with CBD and there we touched a bit on where CBD is legal.
