Despite the fact that marijuana is illegal under federal law, ten states, as well as the District of Columbia, have legalized its recreational use. And while several other states have passed laws that broadly decriminalize pot, legal marijuana use is still nearly impossible for over one-third of the country. This confusing patchwork of laws helps explain the recent popularity of Cannabidiol (CBD) oil and other related products, which are, for the most part, legal to obtain and use throughout the U.S.
CBD is a compound found in cannabis plants. When ingested, it often provides many of the positive side effects commonly caused by marijuana (pain relief, relaxed mood, etc.). However, because it is non-psychoactive, it won’t produce the mind-altering “high” traditionally associated with the drug. And because CBD oil and other products can be derived from hemp plants, which contain less than .3 percent of the psychoactive cannabinoid THC, they avoids many of the legal pitfalls that plague pot-based products. That’s where Eaze Wellness comes in.
