Is CBD legal? What's the difference with marijuana?Updated 7 months ago

This is a common misconception and sometimes people wonder if CBD can cause a high or if its legal. The wonderful news is when CBD is derived from hemp, it cannot cause a high, and it is legal in the United States under the 2018 Farm Bill Act and in over 40 countries worldwide.

Historical books record the use of CBD in advanced ancient civilisations, and even in Scandinavian tradition. It's only in recent years did scientific advancement help us rediscover the power of this miracle plant! Industrial Hemp Plants contain less than 0.3% THC which is what allows it to be classified as a legal substance in the United States.

Our CBD products are NOT derived from marijuana plants.

While hemp and marijuana are technically the same species of plant, cannabis Sativa, and you can harvest CBD from marijuana, hemp and marijuana have differing phytochemical makeups. What distinguishes the two plants are their CBD and THC content. Hemp has a high CBD content and must have no more than 0.3% THC. Any plant over 0.3% THC is considered a marijuana plant in the United States.

All Paw Origins' CBD products are hemp-derived, containing high levels of CBD, a diverse cannabinoid, and terpene profile with under 0.3% THC.
