Introduction to CBD Oil

Cannabidiol (CBD) oil is a naturally occurring compound derived from the industrial hemp plant seed and stalk. It does not have THC in it, will not get you “high” and does not have any psychedelic effects. Because the most commonly felt affect among users is a calm and relaxing feeling, it is most commonly used by those with anxiety, nervousness, high stress, and insomnia.

While research and clinical trials have shown significant health and wellness benefits of the hemp plant and more directly CBD, as proved by this story of how half a milliliter dose of CBD oil helped a young South Carolina girl reduce her seizures, there is a lot of testing being done on CBD oil to determine all the benefits and uses of it.

Legal Status of CBD Oil

The South Carolina House passed a bill on April 2, 2014 that legalized the sale and use of CBD oil in South Carolina. While it required additional testing before sale could be allowed, that has completed and it is not against South Carolina law to buy and use CBD oil in the state. Along the same time as the SC House passed the bill, similar bills were passed in other states including North Carolina! Because we are not attorneys and are not providing legal advice or counsel here, we recommend you read the full information about the legal status on Wikipedia and Celeb Stoner to better educate yourself on the situation.
