You can find CBD on just about anything these days; shampoos, body washes, and oils, gummy bears, even dog treats. Derived from the marijuana plant, CBD or cannabidiol is one of the most controversial drugs in the world, yet it cannot even get you high.
Unlike THC, which is the psychoactive compound in marijuana, CBD has a calming effect. It is also associated with the treatment of a wide range of medical conditions, from arthritis and depression to addiction and epilepsy in children.
Is CBD legal in Maryland?
Absolutely! CBD is approved for use in Maryland. The WHO recently concluded CBD was non-toxic, non-addictive, and non-intoxicating. he World Anti-Doping Agency has also approved its use and more than 40 states have so far adopted programs encouraging the use and growth of, as well as research into industrial hemp.
After a long pilot program, growing industrial hemp was finally legalized nationwide thanks to the 2018 Farm Bill. More importantly, the state passed a measure that helped to establish the legal difference between marijuana and industrial hemp plants. Unlike marijuana plants, which contain more than 0.3% THC, industrial hemp plants contain less than 0.001% THC, which means that they can be legally grown, harvested, processed, and sold in the state without any issues.
