Therapeutic Hemp Medical Access Act of 2017

Summary: S.1008 — 115th Congress (2017-2018)All Information (Except Text)

It also specifies that no provision of this bill prohibits or restricts the use, production, or distribution of marijuana in a state in which such activities are legal under state law.

Strains of therapeutic hemp have been bred intentionally for the medicinal marijuana industry to provide patients with elevated levels of cannabidiol (CBD), which is said to have therapeutic effects.

Some of the therapeutic hemp concentrates feature 18 per cent CBD. Hemp oil and marijuana oil with high levels of CBD and virtually no tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) are the same. It is common for therapeutic hemp to find its way into topicals and beauty products, as well as edible forms, like gel caps. It can also be vaporized.

Maximum Yield Explains Therapeutic Hemp

Therapeutic hemp is considered to be similar to the medicinal cannabis strains such as Charlotte’s Web, which is commonly used to gain relief from seizures or nausea.

The Controlled Substance Act (CSA) classifies marijuana as a Schedule 1 drug, but hemp remains legal so the therapeutic hemp oil products with CBD have become a common medical marijuana option.

Therapeutic hemp is used to make cannabis concentrate oils that are high in cannabidiol (CBD), rather than THC. The oil derived from therapeutic hemp is commonly referred to as cannabidiol hemp oil (CBD oil). Because of its lack of THC, therapeutic hemp does not get the user high.
