Versions of CBD – Legal Or Not Legal

Hey there, lovely people! You know how we all just looove to simplify our lives and feel good, right? Well, let me introduce you to the fabulous world of CBD. (Cue the dramatic music.) That’s right, folks, we’re diving into the three main types of CBD in the US. So grab a cup of tea, get comfy, and let’s get this CBD party started!

Hemp or marijuana matters

Marijuana and hemp are both from the same cannabis family and look similar but contain very different levels of THC, which is what people can get high from.

Before we explain the types of CBD, it’s important to explain that which plant your CBD comes from is a vital piece of information. CBD is an increasingly popular compound that has been studied for its potential to help with various medical conditions. What’s important to be aware of is that CBD can be extracted from both hemp and marijuana plants, so it’s important to know where your CBD is coming from. Hemp-derived CBD is generally more accessible and legal in many states because hemp contains 0.3% or less of THC (the psychoactive compound in marijuana).

However, it’s also possible to extract CBD from marijuana plants, which also contain naturally occurring levels of THC; this type of CBD being suitable for those willing to accept the intoxicating effects associated with marijuana use. Ultimately, understanding the source of your CBD can help ensure you receive the desired health benefits while staying within legal or personal usage parameters.

Hemp-derived products are legal in all 50 states. Marijuana-derived products and products with higher levels of THC vary in restrictions depending on what state you live in.

What are the 3 types of CBD?

We’ve already started talking about parties, so let’s take this analogy and roll with it. Here’s the three main types of CBD you’ll find on the market today.

Full-spectrum CBD is like a party where all of your family members are there. It contains cannabinoids from all parts of the cannabis plant.

1. Full-Spectrum CBD: Picture yourself in a room full of your favorite people – your BFFs, your grandma, that hilarious coworker, and even your dog. That’s what full-spectrum CBD is like! It’s the whole CBD gang, featuring not just CBD but also other beneficial cannabinoids, terpenes, and flavonoids from the hemp plant. Because it contains so many compounds, it provides an entourage effect that can help with stress, pain, sleep issues, and more.

2. Broad-Spectrum CBD: Now imagine that same room, but this time your annoying cousin who always eats your snacks isn’t there. That’s broad-spectrum CBD! It contains all the goodness of full-spectrum CBD, minus one important guest: THC. Yup, that pesky psychoactive compound is left out of the party, making broad-spectrum CBD perfect for those who want to avoid THC altogether but still reap the benefits of the other cannabinoids and terpenes. It’s like having your cake and eating it too, without sharing with your snack-stealing cousin.

3. CBD Isolate: Last but not least, we have CBD isolate. Think of it as the introvert of the CBD world – it’s pure, unadulterated CBD, with no other cannabinoids or terpenes crashing its solo party. This is great for those who want the most straightforward CBD experience or are super sensitive to other compounds. It’s like having a quiet night in.

We know it’s rather humorous to think about CBD this way, but don’t you understand the different better now? You can make a more informed, personally beneficial decision with that new understanding.

Which form of CBD is most effective?

There’s really no super simple answer, because just like you choosing your guests at the party based on what you want to experience, the most effective thing or you depends on your personal preferences. Read up about each type of CBD to see what will be the best for you and your needs.

What form of CBD is FDA approved?

The only FDA approved form of CBD currently is Epidiolex, an anti-seizure medication only recently released.

Are CBD gummies illegal in US?

Gummies are everywhere right now- vitamin gummies, melatonin gummies, CBD gummies. The answer is hemp-derived CBD gummies are legal as long as they don’t contain more than 0.3% THC.

Unlike the more well-known THC, which has high levels in marijuana plants and low levels in hemp, CBD does not produce a high or intoxication. However, it does have some medical benefits. When CBD is derived from hemp plants, it is legal in all 50 states. However, when it’s derived from marijuana plants, it is still illegal in many states.

So, your CBD gummies won’t get you stoned, but you still can reap the rewards of its therapeutic properties. All evidence suggests that CBD is non-toxic, non-addictive, and safe to use. And with more studies being conducted all the time, there are likely to be plenty more incredible findings related to this natural compound yet to come.

Ask your mom.

Let’s go back to that party. Let’s say you’re 17 and want to have a party. First you should always ask your mom, just to make sure it’s okay. This of your doctor the same way. He or she knows things you don’t know. The best thing you can do is always consult your doctor before deciding whether or not to use CBD for any medical condition.

Just like there’s wisdom in asking your mom before you plan a party, always talk to your doctor before beginning a new wellness regimen.

While it’s true that many people have found relief from all kinds of medical conditions after using CBD, it’s important to remember that no two bodies are the same. CBD can interact with certain medications, and in some cases it may even be contraindicated for certain medical issues. Addressing these potential issues ahead of time is loving yourself and using wisdom. In doing so, you will empower yourself by becoming better informed about what products might work best for you—and your physician is the best person to answer those questions.


CBD is a non-psychoactive compound that has many potential medical uses. It can be derived from either hemp or marijuana plants, but only hemp-derived CBD is legal in all 50 states. Many are using CBD to treat pain, anxiety, and seizures, among other things. There are many different forms of CBD available, so it’s important to consult with a doctor before using it for any medical condition.
