"What is Hemp Extract?"
Hemp Extract is just one of 85 different chemical compounds in marijuana plants. Hemp extract is derived from hemp, or cannabis grown with very little THC (often less than 0.3%). For the sake of this article we will refer to marijuana as cannabis grown for its psychoactive effects, and hemp as cannabis grown for its practical uses as a fiber.
Marijuana is marketed for its THC content and hemp is utilized for its Hemp extract content. THC is the psychoactive or intoxicating compound found in cannabis plants whereas, Hemp extract is not psychoactive or intoxicating and has shown strong signs of being an effective treatment for a variety of diseases and mental health disorders.
Where Can I Get Hemp Extract?
Hemp oil is legal in all 50 states but the production of Hemp Extract is not. Even though both come from marijuana, hemp oil is derived from sterile cannabis seeds, which are legal under the Controlled Substances Act. Hemp extract is derived from the plant's flowers which are not legal in some states.
However, this doesn't stop the import of Hemp extract oil made from industrialized hemp grown legally, which is why you're able to buy it legally on the internet. You can find products containing hemp oil in the beauty section of your local retail store, but to get Hemp extract you'll either need to be in a state where it's legal to produce or purchase an import.
