Is CBD Legal?

Is CBD legal?

U.S. federal law still classifies cannabis as a controlled substance. However, in December of 2018, congress lifted the prohibition on the hemp plant and signed the Agricultural Improvement Act of 2018. Hemp-derived CBD is now legal in the U.S.A., unless outlawed by state laws. By this law, CBD products may have no more than 0.3% THC in them. In states where medical and/or recreational marijuana is legal, marijuana-derived CBD may be available as well. The ratio between the two compounds (THC and CBD) vary by product and use. 

Will Green Planet products show up on a drug test?

Generally, legal CBD products with up to 0.3% THC in them should not show up on drug tests but that is not always guaranteed. Green Planet does not take liability for any positive or negative drug tests that our clients may be subject to. Just like poppy seeds may lead to a positive drug test for opioids, the smallest trace amount of THC in your body due to CBD consumption could lead to the same result. If you are subject to any kind of drug test, please consult with your health specialist before consuming our product. Each body reacts differently due to biochemical structure and may be more prone to hold the minimal trace of THC in it. 

Does taking CBD have any side effects?

CBD is usually consumed very safely without any extreme side effects documented as of 2021. As with any other supplement, natural food product or any other compound for that fact - there is a chance that it could cause adverse reactions for some people and/or could interact with certain medications. Make sure you consult with your physician or a health specialist before you consume a CBD product, especially when pregnant, nursing, are taking any medications regularly or have an extreme medical condition.

How to choose the right CBD brand.

Since CBD is not regulated by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), it is a good idea to purchase your CBD products from suppliers that offer complete transparency by conducting third-party lab testing on their products and making those lab reports available on their website.

At Green Planet, we use an independent, third-party lab to test total THC per batch to scientifically validate the products quality ingredients and contents. When you shop with us, you can be sure that you are getting pure CBD with no more than 0.3% THC.

We have products for anyone from the beginning amateur to the CBD connoisseur. Dive right in with a daily tincture, edible gummy, topical for pain or a handpicked specialty strain flower to start enjoying the many benefits CBD has to offer!
