Marijuana-derived CBD contains THC, which is the chemical compound that makes you feel high. This is the reason that the Federal Government still views this type of CBD as illegal.
Beyond convenience, there are many reasons why you should buy your CBD online rather than in-store.
Industrial Hemp CBD vs. Marijuana CBD
For the time being, recreational use in Maryland is not in sight.
So, how does CBD fit into Maryland law?
These punishments are pretty light when compared with federal laws. The Federal Government lists marijuana is as a Schedule 1 drug (drugs that have no accepted medical use, are unsafe, and are highly addictive) under the Controlled Substance Act. Under federal law, you could serve a hard time for even a small amount of marijuana.
CBD, or cannabidiol, is a nonintoxicating cannabinoid found in cannabis and hemp that is sometimes used medicinally. It’s also often infused into certain food products or oils.
CBD oils or products that have less than 0.3 percent of THC are commonly used to help people with anxiety and various health issues.
Companies like these market the CBD-infused oils as health-based, though the FDA believes these types of products are marketed with unproven medical claims.
The FDA does say CBD has the potential to harm those who use it, adding that while they have not approved any other CBD products other than the one that treats epilepsy- there is very limited available information about CBD, including its effects on the body.
