CBD is in industrial hemp. The substance’s popularity shot up ever since the government legalized medical marijuana. Now, hemp containing 0.3% THC is hemp, but if it contains even 0.1% more tetrahydrocannabinol than that, it will be classified as marijuana. Consuming normal amount of hemp containing 0.4% THC may not have any psychoactive effects, but laws are laws. The passing of the 2018 Farm Bill meant that selling and consuming CBD from hemp is legal.
