“BuyCBDOnline.co” was featured on NewsWatch as part of its monthly HealthWatch, which features the latest health news and health-related products in the medical industry. Mallory Sofastaii, a health and technology expert and reporter for NewsWatch, conducted the website review and shared with viewers how it’s the premiere online location for buying Cannabidiol products.

THC is the compound that most recreational marijuana users know about. CBD, short for Cannabidiol, is the non-psychoactive component of cannabis that possesses most of the medicinal values consumers hear about in the news. It has been known throughout history for its benefits in overall health and industry. It’s also completely legal to purchase and consume.

CBD rich hemp oil products come in all forms, and they’re becoming more and more consumer friendly as companies produce more packaged consumables. For consumers interested in learning about products that are rich in CBD, visit BuyCBDOnline.co. They’re one of the largest CBD vendors in the United States and they offer products that range from hemp oils to gum to coffee, all completely legal. Two consumer favorites are the Java Joe’s coffee, which is delicious, and their Tasty Hemp Drops.

A Beginner’s Guide to Hemp Oil, the Cannabis Product That’s Legal Right Now

With medical marijuana on everyone’s lips (in more ways than one), people are buzzing about weed, hemp, cannabis, THC, CBD, and all kinds of other related terms that you might or might not understand. It’s OK — this is confusing stuff.

Leave it to Cultist to offer a little clarity about one such topic you’re probably hearing a lot about: hemp oil. From “cannamoms” to Whole Foods salespeople, lots of folks are touting the benefits of this product. But what is it, exactly, and what does it do?

So what is this stuff?
Let’s start with what hemp oil is not. It is not marijuana. It does not get people high. Both originate from the same plant, but marijuana is cultivated for the buds (which have to be carefully raised for that specific purpose). They’re also grown differently.

The oil has only trace amounts of THC, the psychotropic component in weed. Instead, it has higher concentrations of cannabidiol, or CBD, which is the medicinal boon people are all atwitter over.

“You’ll see two kinds — hemp oil drawn from the plant and hemp oil drawn from the seeds. Ours is drawn from the mature stalks of the hemp plant,” says Andrew Hard, director of public relations for HempMeds, a California company whose hemp oil products are sold all over the world. The stalk and seeds don’t fall under the definition of what the U.S. government dubs marijuana, he says; that’s why the products are legal in all 50 states.

Aw, man. So it won’t get me stoned?
Sorry, man. Let’s put it this way: The medical marijuana bill that recently passed the Florida House would allow patients with cancer and conditions that result in chronic seizures or severe muscle spasms to use marijuana pills, oils, or vapors that contain 0.8 percent THC or lower and 10 percent CBD or higher. Right now, those things are illegal.

HempMeds’ Real Scientific Hemp Oil (RSHO), as a comparison, has 15.5 to 25 percent CBD by volume but only trace amounts of THC.
