Will CBD Oil Be Banned?

Will CBD oil be banned? It won’t, because it’s a product made from hemp. Hemp has never been illegal to grow, provided you have a license, as it can’t be used recreationally. Hemp products are freely available whether as a CBD supplement, a pad of paper, or clothing. These products are becoming more popular because they’re eco-friendly. It’s therefore unthinkable that CBD oil will ever be made illegal.

CBD: Is It Addictive?

CBD supplements are not addictive. A full-spectrum oil contains all the compounds you find in marijuana. However, CBD oil is made from hemp, which isn’t the kind of cannabis that people smoke. Hemp contains low levels of THC, the psychoactive chemical abundant in recreational marijuana strains. It therefore can’t get you high, and isn’t addictive.

What CBD Stands For… What Is Cannabidiol?

The three letters ‘CBD’ don’t stand for three words. Instead, they’re a contraction of the longer word cannabidiol. Cannabidiol is one of more than a hundred cannabinoids found in all species of cannabis plants, to a greater or lesser extent.

How is CBD Made?

The issue is that CBD is a chemical. To make CBD oil, you have to strip away everything you don’t need from the hemp. This means the fibre, plant cells and other unnecessary chemicals. Even in the oils where these things are left in (full spectrum CBD oils), you still need to process the hemp until you’re mostly left with just the CBD.

What you may have missed is that CBD was popular with a smaller audience before it gained a national platform.
