So are CBD edibles legal? Unfortunately, this question isn’t so easy to answer. While the United States is moving in the right direction, the legality of CBD as a whole is still very much unclear because of different laws in different states, and also even different laws at federal and state level. However, CBD from hemp is now legal in all 50 states. In other words, if the CBD is hemp-derived, meaning that it doesn’t contain THC and has no psychoactive effects, then the related CBD product is considered legal across America. However, bare in mind that in some states, CBD may only be legal for medicinal use. This means that you might need a medical marijuana card to purchase your CBD edibles from a dispensary.
The law on hemp-based products in the United States has evolved a lot in recent years. The federal farm bill of 2014 permitted the sale of hemp products, providing that the psychoactive content of these products (i.e. the amount of THC) was below 0.3 percent. That’s why you so often see references to products being either “THC-free” or containing less than 0.3 percent.
CBD edibles that do not contain THC are not addictive. They may actually help end addiction for people who are addicted to products that contain THC. Most people do not build a tolerance to CBD edibles, and no cases of fatal CBD overdose have been reported. A few rare and mild side-effects that may occur from taking CBD edibles are diarrhea, fatigue, and changes in weight.
At Balance CBD we understood the importance of incorporating CBD in your lifestyle, and therefore we created some of the tastiest CBD gummies on the market. Our technology and extraction process has allowed us to develop a product that interacts with the body’s Endocannabinoid System, and provide users with an array of other supplementary benefits.
We recommend refrigeration out of an abundance of caution. Prolonged exposure to sunlight or heat can cause the oil to prematurely spoil. Heat above 160°F will cause the PurCBD+ to breakdown and become ineffective. Refrigeration is the simplest way to ensure the longest possible shelf life. For most people, however, refrigeration isn't needed—it’s just ideal.
