CBD is a compound present in cannabis. More than 80 cannabinoid compounds are found in the plant. Tetrahydrocannabinol may be the main active compound in industrial hemp, but cannabidiol too is sourced from this plant, containing 0.3% THC.
The passing of the Agricultural Amendment Act in 2018 legalized selling and consuming industrial hemp and the plant-based goods. Also known as the Farm Bill, it classifies marijuana with trace amounts of tetrahydrocannabinol as hemp, and the one with over 0.3% THC content as marijuana.
With CBD being a new substance having medicinal values, it has been researched. Still, the FDA is yet to approve mixing it with dietary supplements or food and drinks. No company can include CBD in products that are marketed with curative claims.
CBD is used for pain, anxiety, dystonia, Crohn’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, and several other health issues. However, it is more commonly used to treat the seizures of epilepsy patients than all of the above-mentioned conditions. That is the case because CBD has been approved by the FDA only to treat severe and rare forms of the aforesaid seizure disorder.
