CBD popularity is at an all-time high among Americans, with many consumers now considering it a staple in their routines and many businesses looking to add premium CBD to their offerings.
But with the hemp market becoming increasingly saturated, consumers are often finding themselves with sub-par products and confusing ingredient lists. That’s why it’s more important than ever for CBD and hemp companies to differentiate themselves by the consistent caliber of their products, transparency in their marketing, and expertise among their team members.
If you’re new to CBD, it’s important to understand the basics of why it’s become the talk of the wellness world and how you can best join in on the conversation:
Is CBD legal?
This is the most frequently asked question, and while CBD is federally legalized, its legality varies by state and source. For instance, some states only allow CBD that does not contain any THC levels, such as broad-spectrum products or isolates, while others have a THC threshold.
The map below shows the legality of hemp-derived CBD, which is:
- Legal at the federal level
- Contains less than 0.3% THC
- Non-intoxicating (generally won’t get you high unless you are very sensitive to THC or use large quantities of CBD hemp oil)
What are the benefits of CBD?
CBD is undergoing research to test the many claims it has to health benefits, and you can explore some of the clinical trials currently underway by clicking here. While more human research is still needed, cannabidiol has been widely referred by health care providers to patients with anxiety, stress, and related insomnia. The health benefits wheel below demonstrates the many ailments CBD has been shown to improve when used properly.
Is all CBD created equal?
Certainly not. This is why it's so important to know where your CBD products are coming from, how they’re being processed, and what ingredients they contain. All Associated Hemp products are supervised from seed to sale, extracted using CO2 to ensure a premium-quality end product, and have Certificates of Analysis, which show exactly how much of each component is present in each product.
