IS CBD OIL LEGAL?
CBD, called in its full version cannabidiol is one of the substances present in cannabis, produced naturally by hemp flowers. Discovered chemically in the 1940s and used for many years in the pharmaceutical industry, CBD is the second most crucial element in cannabis sold and smoked by millions of people.
However, CBD is not the element present in cannabis that alters the state of consciousness or creates the slight sensation of intoxication provoked by cannabis. Indeed, this effect, which is called psychoactive is caused by tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). By having THC only at a percentage lower than 0.2%, the CBD will positively act on the human, without the inconveniences that could classify it as a drug (effects on perception, dependence). Consuming CBD does not give red eyes and does not hover. In fact, in the United States, the CBD is currently entirely legal.
Consume CBD, is it legal?
If the question of the legality of the CBD has been discussed throughout this article, it is essential to be clear on the subject. Currently, in France, the CBD is entirely legal because it contains less than 0.2% of THC. That\'s why CBD oils or balms are self-service.
Two specific points question the authorities: CBD in the form of a liquid for cigarettes and the kind of dried flowers or resin. Indeed, the authorities fear confusion between CBD and cannabis, since both can be smoked. As a result, for the moment, the customs do not wish to see passing pallets of CBD towards official retailers in some countries. On the other hand, consumers of CBD who order on the Internet for their account have no problem to have, orders are not blocked at customs.
At the international level, the World Health Organization invites national legislators to decide for themselves the legality of the product. But she has launched an in-depth review of the substance, for a report expected in the coming months. And a meeting of experts at the end of 2017 concluded that the use of this substance, which does not create dependence and poses no danger to health, should not be regulated.
Still, the CBD is the subject of ever-increasing interest of pharmaceutical companies, who see this plant as a useful component in the development of new drugs.
In fact, for the moment, the blur lies. The CBD may be an unfortunate victim of the fight against cannabis in countries such as France or on the contrary, be put forward thanks to its virtues highlighted by much medical research.
