CBD oil is quickly spreading across the nation, including the Bluegrass State of Kentucky, but not all states treat CBD the same way. While nearly Kentucky resident has seen CBD on local store shelves, most still don’t know what it is and how to use it properly. Let’s learn more about CBD oil in Kentucky, including what it is and how to find high-quality CBD products.
In 2017, the Kentucky legislature passed House Bill 333, legalizing the cultivation and consumption of hemp-based CBD products for all Kentucky residents. CBD products are legal in Kentucky, but only if they’re derived from industrial hemp and contain less than 0.3% THC. Kentucky lines up with hemp guidelines outlined in the federal Farm Bills of 2014 and 2018.
Marijuana, marijuana derivatives, and any products containing more than 0.3% of THC are illegal in Kentucky. This includes non-hemp-derived CBD oil even if it meets minimum THC thresholds.
CBD oil is a mixture of carrier oil like hemp seed and the endocannabinoid cannabidiol (CBD). Though it was discovered in the 1940s, CBD has only recently become popular with new research and a wave of marijuana legislation across the country. Research is still ongoing, but CBD oil is believed to offer many therapeutic effects for a wide variety of conditions. CBD oil can be applied topically, ingested directly, or taken under the tongue depending on your preference and what you’re trying to accomplish.
CBD oil works thanks to your body’s own endocannabinoid system. CBD binds to endocannabinoid receptors found all over the human body and directs the body to release its own cannabinoids. Different cannabinoids produce different effects. The cannabinoid THC is the most popular due to the psychoactive effects, but CBD does not produce a high.
Recreational cannabis is illegal in Kentucky, but it’s easy to find legal hemp-based CBD. Kentucky residents can purchase CBD oil at their local health food market or even the local service station. Buyer beware, though, because CBD is unregulated, it’s hard to know you’re getting a high-quality product.
