Is smoking or vaping CBD legal? Is it easy and safe to buy CBD vapes? And which countries completely prohibit this? These are important questions when considering making the switch to CBD.
CBD has been around for centuries. It is a compound that comes from the cannabis plant - along with other compounds such as CBC and THC. What makes CBD unique is that it has no psychoactive elements, so will not get you stoned. It has also been shown to have incredible physical and mental health benefits, including reducing inflammation and helping ease depression and anxiety.
So, all in all, vaping CBD is a healthy option and has so far been shown to be safe and useful to the body. But the question remains - if CBD comes from the cannabis plant, and cannabis remains illegal in many countries / states, is CBD legal?
In 2016, the MHRA (Medicines & Healthcare products Regulatory Agency) stated announced that CBD could be classed as a medicine. It was to be sold, supplied and advertised as medicine and therefore would need a license. The licensing make sure that CBD products meet safety, quality and efficacy standards for human consumption.
So, all in all, as long as CBD is being used for this reason, it is considered legal.
Now, some CBD contains traces of THC, which is the psychoactive element of cannabis. In the UK, CBD can have up to 0.3mg of THC (a negligible, trace amount) to be considered legal.
Cannabis laws in the United States vary because they are dealt with on a state-by-state basis. For example, in Arizona, New Mexico, Michigan and Maine (amongst others), cannabis is fully legalised. This means you can smoke regular cannabis without legal repercussions and can certainly use CBD as a result. In other states, such as Texas, Kentucky and Indiana, only CBD oil is legal to use. Each state has its own specific law about CBD quantities and THC levels. You can find out more by clicking here.
If you are interested in dropshipping CBD or selling CBD wholesale, you need to know where this will not be possible or safe to do. Countries like Singapore, Dubai, Abu Dhabi and Saudi Arabia have strict laws on CBD. In fact, you can go to prison for having CBD on you, even if it has no THC content.
It is vital that when travelling with CBD in your suitcase, that you check the laws of the country you are going to, or any countries you might be transiting through as you could end up in a lot of trouble if the laws say CBD is illegal.
Another thing to consider is whether or not your CBD is genuine. There are so many fake products on the market, and it would be unwise to travel with a CBD product that hasn’t been made by a reputable company, because then you never quite know what you are travelling with.
You can find high quality, safe and legal CBD products here at Jm Distro, including vapes, capsules, creams and gummies.
All of these products are considered safe and regulated for human consumption in the UK and USA. They are third party lab tested, meaning that a third party has checked the quality of the CBD being used in a product.
Third party lab testing helps to keep CBD legal. CBD manufacturers must include the right quantities of ingredients to meet CBD consumers’ expectations. This includes not only CBD but also other compounds derived from the plant as well as key preservatives and other added ingredients.
As CBD comes from the hemp plant, there is a high risk of THC traces forming in the CBD compound. Third party testing ascertains if the right levels of THC are present, to ensure these THC levels are low enough to be legal in the UK and USA. It also checks for an absence of pesticides and harmful substances that aren’t fit for human consumption.
