CBD oil is one of the fastest growing health and wellness products in the country, and many South Carolina residents are taking advantage of CBD’s numerous benefits. South Carolina residents are still learning about CBD’s benefits and its murky legal status, but we want to cut through misinformation with this quick guide to CBD in South Carolina.
South Carolina does not currently have a legal medical or recreational medical marijuana program but that doesn’t mean you can’t obtain CBD oil.
In 2014 South Carolina passed S1035, known as Julian’s Law, that allows for cannabis-derived CBD oil for certain medical situations. Any cannabis-derived CBD oil used in medical treatment in South Carolina must contain a minimum of 14% of CBD, a maximum THC level of 0.9%, and can only be obtained from the Medical University of South Carolina.
Hemp-derived CBD oil is another story. Thanks to the passage of the 2018 U.S. Farm Bill all CBD oil derived from hemp is legal for South Carolina residents if the oil contains less than 0.3% THC. All South Carolina residents can purchase or order any CBD oil with less than 0.3% THC.
Cannabidiol (CBD) is a cannabinoid found in the cannabis family of plants. Unlike its popular cannabinoid cousin tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), CBD can give users therapeutic effects without any high or psychoactive effects. Consumers use CBD oil for a variety of potential therapeutic benefits in treating chronic pain, inflammation, muscle spasms, stress, and a variety of other conditions.
CBD takes advantage of your body’s naturally occurring endocannabinoid system and attaches itself to your body’s CB1 and CB2 receptors for therapeutic effects. CB1 receptors are found mostly in the brain and can affect coordination, movement, pain, mood, appetite and more. CB2 receptors are more commonly found in your body’s immune system and can affect inflammation and pain.
Research into CBD and its effects on the endocannabinoid system is still ongoing but researchers currently believe endocannabinoids like CBD direct the body to tap into its own cannabinoid system for therapeutic effects.
