This is a hemp plant. You can extract CBD oil from it but you can't get high on it.

Three Things Everyone Should Know About Hemp Extracts

CBD oil is my favorite pain cure. It’s natural. It’s legal. It doesn’t get me high and most importantly of all – it works.

Nobody needs painkillers that don’t kill pain though many doctors prescribe them anyway. Recent research has shown even opiates are not effective in the long-term for pain management but CBD oil is effective.

CBD is an extract from hemp. That is a form of cannabis but not one that you would smoke to get high. Here’s what you need to know:

  1. You can’t get high on industrial hemp extracts. Why not? Because there’s no THC, the chemical that gets you high when you smoke marijuana, in the hemp. This is why hemp has been legal for a long time in almost every part of the world. It’s actually a very useful crop and you can make a lot of things out of it.
  2. The hemp-based foods you see in a supermarket aren’t hemp extracts. These foods only contain hemp seeds which do contain a little CBD but so little that you’d need to eat several tons of them to feel an effect. CBD is extracted from flowers and not from seeds. That’s a big difference.
  3. It’s 100% legal in the USA. Well, maybe. In 49 states there is no argument surrounding hemp and its extracts, they’re legal. But recently Wisconsin decided to muddy the waters. It’s not clear whether CBD oil is now illegal in Wisconsin but it’s important to know that it might not be.

So, don’t worry about CBD oil consumption. It’s safe, legal and it won’t get you high, guaranteed.

Now, all you need to do is decide where you want to buy your CBD oil from. One of my favorite places is Lazarus Naturals, check them out, they’re really good.
