Hemp CBD Oil has been making headlines lately, especially around Texas. So what exactly is CBD oil and why are people talking about it? Let’s break it down:
Hemp CBD Oil is derived from the Cannabis Sativa L plant. There are many uses of the Cannabis Sativa L plant, so it helps to relieve confusion if we use of the correct term for the plant based on how it is used:
- When the plant is used for agriculture with the THC level being 0.3% or less, it should be referred to as hemp.
- When the plant contains over the 0.3% threshold and is used for medical purposes, it is referred to as medicinal cannabis.
- States that allow for recreational use of the plant prefer the term adult use cannabis.
- The illegal use of the plant has historically been referred to as marijuana.
