If CBD oil is made from the cannabis hemp plant most countries class it as legal. If it’s from derived from other strains of cannabis with higher levels of THC above (0.3%) then some countries class it as illegal. Fundamentally, it all relies on how much THC is within the CBD product, THC is illegal because of its psychoactive properties.  And herein lies the confusion.

When the word ‘cannabis’ is used, people instantly think of it as an illegal substance. Yet, the cannabis hemp plant is rich in CBD which is non- psychoactive and only has trace amounts of THC (0.3%). CBD is a different compound to THC all together. To understand this, let’s explore what CBD is and how it fundamentally differs from Cannabis with high levels of THC and hemp.

It is legalised to grow hemp in the state of Madhya Pradesh for industrial and medicinal purposes. Certain narcotics are already growing in the state of Madhya Pradesh and hence it is a legal practice. Though it is to be noted that legal permits have to be obtained from the concerned departments of the state legislature and dignified authorities.

Hope this clears your query.
