We live in a world where the use of cannabis oil is becoming increasingly more widespread. Hemp oil is used for purposes like arthritis, arthritis pain, joint pain, muscle pain and even cancer.
It is also known as “CBD” or “cannabidiol”. This blog post discusses the legality of using hemp oil for medicinal purposes in all fifty states as well as a few other nations around the world.
The Legality of Hemp Oil
One of the main selling points of hemp oil is its medicinal properties. However, the question remains, is hemp oil legal? According to Colorado legislation, Hemp oil, or CBD oil, is considered to be cannabis in Colorado. Therefore, it is illegal for a licensed physician to prescribe, or a pharmacy to dispense, hemp oil. In fact, the DEA also consider it to be a controlled substance. However, a temporary court order was recently granted that allows a registered medical cannabis card holder to take this oil.
It has been reported by the Center for Disease Control that since 2000, almost twenty states have legalized the use of hemp oil as an alternative treatment. In the last couple of years, the FDA has allowed trials for the use of hemp oil in people suffering from epilepsy.
CBD oil and hemp oil are not the same
These two herbs are one and the same, many people confuse this and confuse it with hemp, which is a plant, the only difference between hemp and hemp oil is the plant and its seeds. Both hemp and hemp oil come from the same plan, the only difference is the production process.
The compound that is legal for use in the United States in medicinal purposes is called cannabidiol. Cannabis is derived from the hemp plant, the cannabis plant is a Cannabis sativa plan, the compound that is found in the hemp plant is very different from the compound that is found in the Cannabis sativa plant.
How it is used
According to the National Hemp Association, hemp can be used to produce more than 25,000 uses. Hemp can be used in the production of products such as fuel, rope, textiles, paper, paint, insulation, body care products, cosmetics and veterinary drugs. Hemp seeds are used in such products like animal feed, cake, milk, yogurt, ice cream, and many more.
As an alternative to cocaine, hemp seeds are used in the manufacture of biofuel, many states and countries also see the use of hemp as a source of construction material, however, hemp has not been approved for either food or drug use.
How it became illegal In 1937, the passage of the Marijuana Tax Act made cannabis illegal, even though there was evidence showing that hemp was a better alternative to the illegal drug.
Is it a medicine?
CBD is not a medicine and is not FDA-approved as a medicine.
CBD can also be used to feel good and relieve pain, as we discussed earlier, there are many potential health benefits of CBD oil, but how is it possible that CBD oil can give you relief from pain? CBD can be taken orally, intranasally, and even topically. In fact, there is some evidence that CBD oil taken orally works best for relieving pain.
