Hey everyone! It’s Brandon from HealthyHempOil.com. I wanted to come to you today with a question that I get asked all the time and that’s, “Is CBD legal?” Specifically for certain countries, everyone wants to know whether it’s legal in their countries so I’m gonna talk about that in a second.
First of all, you need to know that CBD oil can come from both the hemp plant and from medical marijuana. Both of those plants are different varieties of cannabis but they’re much different in the terms of chemical compounds they have. Medical marijuana is good for people with certain ailments because it does contain the THC and it can contain any varying level of the THC or any varying level of CBD.
The products that we have on our website at HealthyHempOil.com only contain the component CBD and there’s a very, very negligible amount of THC in our products and there is absolutely no chance that you can get high from them because it’s such a very low level that’s present in the hemp plant itself.
So the products on our website are 100% legal throughout the United States in all 50 states because they’re considered a dietary supplementary because they come from hemp oil. So hemp oil is legal to be imported and to be used and be sold. Typically, it’s used for things like paper, clothing, different types of textiles and we have a CO2 extraction process that we use to extract the CBD oil from the hemp plant and because it’s made from hemp and not medical marijuana, again, it has very, very low levels of THC. This is why it is a dietary supplement in the United States.
So if you’re living in the United States, it’s very clear that our products, all the CBD oil from hemp plants, they are considered 100% legal and they are considered a dietary supplement by the FDA. That means it’s legal to ship and consume throughout all 50 states within the US.
Now if you’re outside the United States, things get a little more tricky because not every country has explicitly stated the legalities on these types of oils. Now there is one country in particular and that’s Canada that has specifically stated that they consider CBD whether it comes from hemp or medical marijuana to be a Scheduled II Drug, Class Scheduled II Drug, which means that it has reported medicinal benefits but they would like to control the regulation and the selling of those products.
Now for other countries, what we typically recommend is that you look into your Customs Department and you ask them if you are able to import dietary supplements from the United States because our product is a dietary supplement in the United States and we can ship it worldwide. The only problem is we don’t always know if it’s going to be received on your end. So if you check with your Customs Department and you ask them to see whether you’re able to actually receive dietary supplements from the United States then you should be good to go.
So if you have any further questions about whether CBD oil is legal in your country or not, feel free to send me an email at [email protected] or send us or give us a phone call and that number is 1-844-HEMPOIL.
