Legal States and Legitimate Extracts
Legal States and Legitimate Extracts
To understand the legal position of CBD and other cannabis-related products and hemp plant products in relation to its production and sale must first understand the difference between cannabis and hemp themselves and CBD-based pharmaceuticals, hemp and pot-based goods: CBD oil legal status and laws for medicinal and recreational use of cannabis and hemp are constantly evolving in all countries across the globe. While some countries such as Italy have been able to stage a successful campaign to regulate CBD products to make them available for sale across the country, the status and regulation of CBD are still largely debated. There is a great deal of confusion in the medical and legal communities with respect to the cultivation, production, possession and consumption of CBD. Some argue that CBD is less harmful than alcohol and does not have the same addictive properties as cannabis. Others argue that it is an unfit substitute for marijuana which has more severe side effects.
The issue of CBD oil legal countries and its production and consumption, per se, is one that falls within the spectrum of medical and legal issues surrounding the cultivation, production and consumption of CBD as a food or medicine product. This is because the medical and scientific community at large is in dispute regarding the impact of CBD on human and animal health and the likelihood of causing long term health problems. The only certainty is that CBD is not considered safe for use by any means for medicinal purposes as it is not considered capable of relieving the symptoms of debilitating illnesses like cancer and seizures, the main CBD derivative used for these purposes being the psychoactive form of CBD known as CBD. Despite the lack of conclusive evidence regarding the short and long term effects of CBD on health, some medical authorities in countries where recreational cannabis is grown, sell and consume have issued warnings and statements condoning the use of CBD by adults for medicinal purposes.
When considering the issue of CBD oil legal countries, one of the most important factors that one must take into account is the status of the producer of the oil. While the sale and consumption of CBD by adults in some countries has been legalized, the possession and production of CBD for personal use remains illegal in many of the countries where cannabis is grown, processed, and consumed. Consequently, irrespective of whether the oil obtained from the cannabis plant is consumed by adults or for therapeutic use, such oil is considered to be in violation of both federal and state law and can attract jail time and penalties. In addition, production and possession of CBD for personal use is considered to be an illegal act in many states including; Canada, US, Uruguay, and Italy.
In light of the situation, it is no longer simply matters of international law enforcement of laws across borders. There are currently two legal alternatives that may be taken to address the situation of cannabis in Austria and Germany. These options are currently under development and require funding and time commitment from governmental and non-governmental organizations.
One of the potential solutions to the legal issue of CBD oil in Austria and Germany is to introduce a hemp-derived CBD into these countries in order to cultivate a variety of CBD-derived medicinal and industrial uses. Currently, there are no genetically modified plants currently available for cultivation purposes in the hemp arena. However, there are patent rights granted to various strains of cannabis-derived pharmaceutical plants that allow the extraction and conversion of CBD into pharmaceuticals. As such, it would be possible to extract CBD from hemp seed oil and sell these pharmaceuticals under the name” Hemp Seed Oil” or “Hemp Oil.”
In addition to the potential of using CBD Seed Oil from hemp to address the legal issues surrounding CBD consumption, there are other ways that Europe could implement legislation that legalizes the cannabis plant for therapeutic and industrial purposes. For example, there are many regions of Europe that have traditionally maintained strong hemp cultivation and extraction industries. Additionally, it has been illegal for anyone but registered pharmacies to sell CBD without a prescription in many parts of the United States since the cannabis plant has been banned altogether in some states (such as Colorado) since the 1970s. Therefore, it will be difficult if not impossible to obtain CBD without a prescription in the United States and many places throughout Europe. There are currently bills in California and Colorado that seek to legalize the cannabis plant for medical use.
Some believe that it will be more difficult to legally grow and extract CBD from cannabis in the European Union than it is in the United States. This is because the European Union has been more restrictive on marijuana than the United States has been. Currently, the EU has very restrictive laws regarding the production, transportation, sale, possession, importation, and exportation of all drugs, including CBD oil. While some marijuana enthusiast clubs have been able to continue selling cannabis in Europe, the resale of CBD is effectively banned. Currently, it is considered a controlled substance. This means that most distributors have to face criminal prosecution in order to be exposed to the public.
While the possession of CBD may not be an issue in some states such as Oklahoma, it could become one in Norway. Since it is highly illegal to cultivate, sell or distribute any kind of pharmaceutical or illicit drug in Norway, it is easy to see why cannabis seed oil might not be a wise investment for Norwegian companies. The only legal way to harvest CBD would be to harvest it yourself using a CBD-extracting machine that you probably cannot afford. Therefore, it will likely remain illegal to sell CBD in Norway under any circumstances.
