Is CBD Oil Legal?

Is CBD Oil Legal?

The current and short answer to whether CBD Oil is legal in all 50 states is, yes – federally. The government says products made from Hemp – including those containing CBD – are legal to sell in interstate commerce throughout the United States.

However, each state views the legality of CBD Oil differently. The legality surrounding CBD Oil in most states relies heavily on how the CBD is sourced and grown, and the levels of THC in the plant.

It can be a complicated issue, with good reason.

As of January 2020, the CBD industry remains unregulated by the U.S Food and Drug Administration (FDA). With minimal guidelines in place for products like CBD Oil, it’s not unusual for anyone interested in trying CBD Oil to wonder whether it’s legal in their state or community.

Once the 2018 Farm Bill was signed into law, all CBD derived from the stalks and aerial parts of Hemp became federally legal in all 50 states – so long as it contained less than 0.3% delta-9 THC by dry weight.

With the signing of the 2018 Farm Bill, the FDA gained complete authority over Hemp-derived products, including foods, dietary supplements, cosmetics and human and veterinary drugs. The FDA is at the forefront of ensuring American consumers have access to safe and properly labeled Hemp products. Due to the rapid flood of CBD on the market, it has been nearly impossible for the FDA to monitor every place that sells CBD – from big companies to mom-and-pop shops. Without definitive policies in place at the federal level, most of the work falls on state governments to determine how to regulate hemp-derived products.

2018 Farm Bill: Distinction Between Industrial Hemp and Marijuana

Before the 2018 Farm Bill passed, Hemp and marijuana were classified – together – as Schedule I Drugs under the 1970 Controlled Substances Act (CSA). Although both Hemp and marijuana plants are types of Cannabis Sativa, their chemical compositions, appearance and function are characteristically different. The main differentiator between the two plants is their amount of delta-9 tetrahydrocannabinol (delta-9 THC) – the chemical cannabinoid compound responsible for causing a “high,” or psychoactive effect.

Let’s take a closer look at the differences between Industrial Hemp and marijuana.

Industrial Hemp

Industrial Hemp contains low levels of delta-9 THC –less than 0.3%. It’s worth noting that using a CBD product with this amount of THC will not cause the psychoactive effects associated with marijuana. Instead, Hemp contains high levels of the cannabinoid CBD (Cannabidiol). Hemp-derived CBD has become a highly sought-after compound. Hemp is very versatile and can be used to make food, clothing, textiles and other lifestyle products.

Marijuana

Marijuana contains more than 0.3% delta-9 THC. Ingesting or smoking marijuana will cause psychoactive effects. Marijuana is solely used for medicinal or recreational purposes.

Is CBD Oil Legal in All 50 States?

How CBD is sourced and grown – and its level of delta-9 THC – is one of the primary parameters that contribute to the question of whether CBD Oil is legal in a specific state. For all 50 states, for CBD to be legal it must follow these three standards:

(1) Must be sourced from Industrial Hemp
(2) Farmers of Hemp must be licensed growers and comply with federally run programs
(3) Must contain no more than 0.3% delta-9 THC

While those are the three basic regulations for federally legal CBD-derived products, states can – and do – implement their own laws. The requirements for packaging, labeling and testing can vary by state as well. State laws put a lot of pressure on the consumer to understand their state’s legislation and know whether they’re purchasing from a reputable CBD company.

Nevertheless, your state has the final say in whether CBD Oil is legal.

*CBD products sourced and produced from marijuana are still federally illegal throughout most of the U.S.*

FDA Clampdown on CBD Products

On Nov. 25, 2019, the FDA issued warning letters to 15 companies for illegally selling Cannabidiol products that violated the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act (FD&C Act). Most of these companies received letters for marketing their CBD products with unproven medical claims and producing products using unsafe manufacturing practices. Global Widget – the leading supplier and manufacturer of Nature’s Script’s Hemp – did not receive an FDA Warning Letter. Claims made regarding CBD products included words like treat, cure and prevention for diseases and conditions such as Alzheimer’s, cancer, Parkinson’s and multiple sclerosis. Marketing a wellness product with unproven claims can negatively impact a user’s health and hinder them from seeking proper medical treatment.

Why You Can Trust Safe Vape Products from Nature’s Script

Why You Can Trust Safe Vape Products from Nature’s Script

Putting your trust in a safe vape product may seem difficult amid state bans and rising health concerns due to vaping. However, much of the panic over vaping can be attributed to harmful and unreliable products from less-than-reputable manufacturers. Many of the vape-related health risks stem from counterfeit vape products that contain vitamin E acetate – a thickening agent used in the production of nicotine and THC-based vapes.

With these issues surrounding vaping, it may leave you wondering, Is vaping safe?

At Nature’s Script, our CBD E-Liquids consist only of premium Hemp Extract and the ideal ratio of vegetable glycerin (VG) and propylene glycol (PG) – a 75/25 VG/PG split. All of our CBD Vape products are free of vitamin E acetate and nicotine.

Check out the four main reasons why you can trust our safe vape CBD products:

Safe Vape CBD E-Liquids Crafted In-House

Nature’s Script CBD E-Liquids are crafted in-house, giving us total control over their quality and integrity. All raw CBD used in our E-Liquids comes with a full panel Certificate of Analysis (COA). COAs ensure our CBD is potent and free of any microbial life, mycotoxins, metals, residual solvents and bacteria. Using our approved raw CBD, we then formulate our CBD E-Liquids in-house. Manufacturing our CBD Vape Juice in-house gives us an immediate advantage over companies that outsource the production of their vape products. We maintain a careful watch over every batch and get the final say on all vaping products that go out for sale.

Extensive Quality Control

We have one of the most robust quality-control programs in place for CBD and the manufacturing of vape products. Our quality standards consist of quarantine areas, stability testing, current Good Manufacturing Practices (cGMPs) and multi-stage lab testing. Once we receive our raw materials, we quarantine them to ensure their stability and potency over time. Stability testing lets us evaluate the shelf life of our CBD E-Liquids so that we can appropriately label them with the correct expiration dates. Our manufacturing team receives extensive training about cGMPs so that we are better equipped to meet any regulations the FDA puts in place. We put a great deal of emphasis on quality control to assure you’re buying a safe vape product and not a potentially harmful one that you’ve heard about in the news.

In-House and Third-Party Lab Testing

Building off of our rigorous quality control programs, we also have procedures in place for in-process lab testing. Throughout the formulation process, we test samples to make sure the quality of our products stays consistent. We complete a final check of all finished goods to ensure they uphold our quality and potency standards. The last step of our lab testing process is to send our CBD E-Liquids to an ISO-certified third-party lab. Third-party lab results help confirm the efficacy of our products. We then publish the lab test results on our website so that you can see that our CBD E-Liquids are safe to vape.

Proper Labeling and Marketing

Many of the recent bans on flavored vape products have resulted from dishonest vape companies targeting underage adults. Nature’s Script CBD E-Liquids are intended for adults who are looking for a safe and natural way to obtain relaxation. We also take extensive measures to certify proper labeling. What you see on the label of our CBD E-Liquids is what you get in the bottle. We want you to enjoy a stress-free vaping experience while also benefiting from CBD Vape Oil’s effects.

How CBD Can Help You Stay Fit

Stay Fit With CBD

Hemp Oil for Staying Fit

When looking for products to help you stay fit, CBD products should be at the top of the list. The fitness community has praised CBD Oil’s benefits, especially those who like to stay active and feel their best. Competitors and fitness fanatics are always looking for new and improved ways to help them perform to the best of their abilities. From yoga lovers to full-time athletes, CBD Oil’s beneficial properties may help in a variety of ways they never thought possible.

What is CBD Oil?

CBD Oil is also known as Hemp Extract, a natural compound derived from Hemp plants. CBD Oil is rich in Cannabidiol (CBD) and can be referred to as CBD-rich Hemp Oil or Hemp-derived CBD Oil. At Nature’s Script, we extract our CBD Oil from premium-grade Industrial Hemp. CBD is highly versatile in its uses, and it is commonly featured in products such as oils, rubs, and gummies. CBD Oil has gained attention for the way it positively interacts with your body’s Endocannabinoid System (ECS).

The ECS is a biological system made up of neurological endocannabinoid receptors. These receptors control functions in your body such as appetite, pain response, recovery time, mood and sleep. All of these functions are essential to staying active. CBD has the potential to benefit your ECS by influencing it to produce more endocannabinoids (cannabinoids produced within your body).

How Can CBD Help Me Stay Fit?

Staying active promotes a healthier lifestyle and a more improved “you.” Taking the wrong supplements or medications can adversely affect your performance and body composition. Hemp Extract has the potential to provide a healthier lifestyle and help you recover. Whether you like to swim, bike, or play basketball, CBD’s benefits can positively impact you.

1.) Pre-Workout Anxiety

CBD may help you if you suffer from pre-workout anxiety. Half the battle of staying active is getting yourself up to go work out. Working out can be daunting when you dread going on that late, after-work run or fear going to an overcrowded gym. Hemp Extract may be able to provide anxiety relief and promote calmness and ease of mind. Having a clear state of mind going into a workout can make all the more difference.

 

2.) Game-Day Anxiety 

After you have gone through all your preparation to get to game day, you may still have jitters and stress. You put in all the work necessary, but nothing can prepare you for when you step on the playing surface. A few drops of CBD Oil before a big game may help calm nerves and provide relief from game-day-induced anxiety.

 

3.) Reduced Irritation

Irritation in the muscles is the body’s natural immune response to protect itself from harm. If you continuously stay active, you may be more susceptible to injury and infections that may lead to excess irritation. Research has shown that CBD has powerful properties that may help provide relief. Nature’s Script Hemp Extract Pain Rub has the potential to soothe and eliminate areas of irritation throughout your body.

4.) Recovery

CBD is a premium supplement that can take your workout recovery to the next level. CBD may help maintain homeostasis by supporting your Endocannabinoid System. Homeostasis helps sustain your muscles and immune system recovery. Hemp Extract has the potential to help you recover quicker and get you back to staying active.

 

5.) Lifestyle Advantage

Hemp is a plant-based source chock-full of fatty acids. When CBD is extracted, it contains some of these fatty acids that are essential to your body’s energy production. Since humans do not naturally produce fatty acids, we must obtain it through external sources. CBD has the potential to provide you with a number of beneficial health and wellness boosts.
