There is no question that CBD-infused everything is quite the rage right now. On July 30, 2019, CBD oil became legal in the state of Ohio. What is CBD? CBD stands for cannabidiol, and it is the second most prevalent of the active ingredients of cannabis (marijuana), the other one being THC (tetrahydrocannabinol). While CBD is an essential component of medical marijuana, it is derived directly from the hemp plant, which is a cousin of the marijuana plant.
CBD is a naturally occurring compound found in the resinous flower of cannabis, a plant with a rich medicinal history dating back thousands of years. Under Ohio law, CBD products may only contain trace amounts of THC, up to .3%. Pure CBD is a non-psychoactive cannabinoid, so unlike THC, it does not contain addictive properties or the sensation of feeling “high.”
