Residents throughout the Empire state have come to enjoy countless benefits of Cannabidiol (CBD) oil in New York. CBD oil works synergistically inside the body with the endocannabinoid system (ECS), an intricate cell-to-cell communication system that regulates numerous physical processes. While scientific research is ongoing and expected to increase, extensive anecdotal support has arisen in recent years.
New York residents have come to enjoy CBD oil for it’s support in comfort and well-being. Legs sore from walking countless long blocks in the city? Noisy neighbors keeping you from getting a good night’s sleep? Stressed about your upcoming job interview? Consumers throughout the U.S. have reported success for anxiety, depression, stress, muscle pain, inflammation, quality of sleep, relaxation, seizures, acne, digestive conditions, and much more. Many individuals have also used CBD oil to provide pain relief and reduced anxiety in their pets, including cats, dogs, and horses.
Is CBD in New York Legal?
In December of 2018, passage of the U.S. Farm Bill federally legalized the production of industrial hemp, thereby legalizing CBD oil containing quantities of less than 0.3% THC. Since that time, CBD oil can be found through the state, at local grocers, natural food markets, herbalists, acupuncturists, chiropractors, smoke shops, naturopaths, personal trainers, and a wide range of other retail outlets.
On July 1, 2019, New York city leadership recently passed a local ordinance that prohibits restaurants, coffee shops, and other retailers from adding CBD to food and drinks. As of October 2019, city businesses that continue to serve CBD-infused snacks and beverages will be subjected to fines and consequences.
This is an act in an abundance of caution to give the FDA time to allow for additional research in order to determine recommended dosing guidelines. Due to the ever-changing landscape of legislation in New York, we recommend doing your own due diligence to understand your local and state laws regarding the sale and use of industrial hemp products such as CBD. Fortunately, the NYC ordinance applies to business establishments only, which means there’s nothing preventing you from adding CBD oil to your own favorite smoothie, mocktail, salad dressing, or hot beverage, in the privacy of your own home.
Besides ingesting CBD oil in your favorite food or beverage, the oil can be simply taken orally or sublingually. Sublingual use is considered to be the most rapidly absorbed, as is as simple as holding the desired number of drops under the tongue for approximately fifteen to thirty seconds. Then, swish and swallow, and avoid eating or drinking for fifteen minutes. CBD oil can also be used an active topical. Massage it into the affected area, either straight from the bottle or mixed into your favorite lotion.
