A Phyto cannabinoid, which simply means that it is a plant-derived substance from the Cannabis plant. But that’s marijuana, you might say, and isn’t that illegal? CBD and tetrahydrocannabinol, or THC are two of the most well-known therapeutic components in Cannabis. While THC causes the “high” that marijuana is known for, CBD is a non-psychoactive. While full-spectrum CBD formulations contain varying amounts of THC and other cannabinoids, we chose to use CBD isolate for our oil because it has no detectable THC, which was confirmed by repeated third party testing at laboratories in Colorado and Chicago.
As to the legality of CBD, in 2018, Congress passed the “Farm Bill” which federally legalized Cannabis as long as the THC content is below 0.3%. This has opened the floodgates for the CBD market, as you have probably noticed.
