Cannabidiol Oil (CBD) has quickly gained immense popularity in the natural health community, but there are many questions regarding the legality of this multiuse ingredient. CBD is a legal ingredient for private label nutraceutical distributors to add to their product portfolio, if sourced correctly.
CBD is derived from either hemp or marijuana plants. Both hemp and marijuana are from the cannabis family, and share many similar properties. The biggest difference between the two sources is the amount of the psychoactive Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) the plants produce. Marijuana plants can contain up to 30% THC, while hemp contains less than 0.3%. Hemp does not possess the high inducing qualities of marijuana, and the law allows the sale of hemp products across all 50 states.
Because of misinformation and confusion between hemp and marijuana, there is an unfounded stigma surrounding CBD legality. From a legal standpoint, hemp-based CBD has all rights as a legal ingredient in dietary supplements. Marijuana-based CBD is legal in some states, but to avoid issues as a national seller, it is important to source CBD from hemp for national sales. CBD containing THC is legal at some level in 46 states, but many require a prescription.
CBD is thought to have many applications. Cannabidiol supplements are available in multiple forms, including liquid tinctures and capsule products. CBD is found in overall wellness, weight management, sports recovery, and other solution nutraceuticals. Cannabidiol is poised to become the next biggest private label supplement for distributors this year.
In order to be ahead of competition within this profitable supplement category, cannabidoil supplement distributributors can focus on developing unique CBD formulations, as well as a targeted brand for these products.
