Organic Kentucky Hemp and CBD Oil

What Is CBD Oil?

CBD, or cannabidiol, is a compound found primarily in the flowers and leaves of the hemp plant. It’s one of many powerful cannabinoids found in hemp, and is known for supporting body and mind in various ways. After close to a hundred years of prohibition, hemp regulations have finally taken root in America. In 2014, the federal farm bill gave farmers in various states, which have adopted industrial hemp legislation, permission to legally grow and harvest hemp (in conjunction with the state’s department of agriculture programs). There are other states that have established industrial hemp programs, but these programs are limited to academic and agricultural purposes only (USDA, 2016).


With many states adopting hemp laws, there is much confusion as to what hemp actually is. Hemp has been often confused with marijuana which is a federal schedule 1 narcotic due to its psychoactive properties and is illegal without a prescription. Marijuana is specifically grown for the high delta-9 tetrahydrocannabinol, or THC, and low cannibinodal, or CBD content (DEA). Hemp on the other hand is a low-THC, high-CBD variety of Cannabis.
