Even though getting your MMJ card renewal with us will only take you a couple of minutes. If you are not sure if you’ll be able to go to a dispensary or if they’ll be able to come to you, CBD is a good option to try out in the meantime. Hemp-derived CBD is actually legal throughout the United States and these days is practically found in each and every possible thing.
Yes, this molecule has forever been found in cannabis but at the advent of the rise of cannabis and the passing of the Farm Bill of 2018. This is legal across the country barring one technicality- it needs to be derived from hemp and not cannabis. The classification of the hemp plant itself states that it needs to have less than 0.3% THC or it becomes a marijuana plant.
So, you can easily get CBD delivered to your house even in the absence of an MMJ card. If the CBD is hemp-derived, you should have no issues in getting it for yourself. There is no requirement for a medical marijuana card to buy a hemp-based CBD product.
There has been a drastic rise in the number of CBD products in the market. If it is not something that you have considered before, we have compiled a list of things you need to know about CBD before you make a purchase
Will CBD Get Me High?
When you are dealing with cannabis in any form, one of the first things that you will hear will be about the effects of feeling high. What this refers to is the effects of THC, which leaves you with nice euphoric feelings. CBD is the counterpoint to this. CBD helps you keep a clear head while still imparting most of the positive effects of the plant. These include pain relief and relaxation.
Even though CBD works really well, there can still be trace amounts of THC in the end product which is why you need to get a third-party analysis for the product you are about to buy.
Things to Look For in a CBD Product
You will find that most products available in the market contain CBD that is derived from hemp. Your goal at every point should be to try and get the best quality product available to you. After all, you are going to consume the product in a very direct manner. So, it does not hurt to do a thorough analysis of the product that you are about to purchase.
Whenever you are about to buy a CBD product, you need to look at the following aspects on the product label.
The first step is always to double-check the source of the CBD oil. Hemp-derived CBD oil (do not confuse it with hemp seed oil) is sourced from something known as Cannabis Sativa L, better known as hemp flowers. Another thing that you should look for is the origin of the product as the farmer needs to be certified by the state’s department of agriculture.
The Manufacturing Method
When it comes to the manufacturing of the products, you need to be careful about the manufacturing technique being employed. As oftentimes low-cost products can be using extremely questionable methods to get the finished product. You are looking at methods like whole plant infusion when you are looking at the process.
The MG Count
Always check how many milligrams of CBD are there in a product. You do not want to end up paying an exorbitant amount for a jar full of coconut or olive oil. That best option budget-wise is to invest in a 30 ML tincture that has about 900mg of CBD, it should be effective.
I cannot stress enough how important it is to look at the testing protocol applied to figure out what is in your CBD oil. Third-party testing is what is the difference between a good product and a lower quality fare in the market. Reports not only tell you what the Milligram of CBD is in the product but also if there are any heavy metals or pesticides present in the oil.
How is CBD Oil Made?
CBD oil is made from extracting CBD compounds from either hemp or cannabis. Then this extract is added to a carrier, which can be any oil; the usual suspects are olive and coconut oil.
You can further bifurcate this into three different types of oil.
Full-Spectrum CBD Oil
This has a full chest of compounds locked into it. No isolation of compounds takes place, and whatever cannabinoids grace the plant’s profile end up in the oil. This means THC, CBD, and every terpene).
Broad- Spectrum CBD Oil
There is a certain amount of refinement that has happened when you are going in for a broad spectrum of CBD oil. This has the compounds and terpenes with the exclusion of THC.
There is just CBD and nothing else. No compounds, no terpenes, nothing.
CBD can be a real help, all you need to do is try it out for your condition once and I’m sure you will not be disappointed and Of course you can always return to medication once you get your MMJ card renewal.
