There has been an undeniable explosion in popularity and availability of Cannabidiol, better known as CBD, one of the over 100 cannabinoids found in the Cannabis sativa L. plant. The interest in CBD has only picked up steam with the passage of the 2018 Farm Bill. Before the president signed the 2018 Farm Bill this past December, hemp, which CBD is a derivative of, was included in the definition of marijuana in Schedule I of the Controlled Substances Act, even though it is not the psychoactive component in marijuana. The 2018 Farm Bill removed hemp from that definition, making hemp and its derivatives, like CBD, no longer federally illegal to produce, manufacture or sell.
