If you’d rather partake with an oil than a gummy, you’re in luck, as the Martha Stewart CBD Oil Sampler is now on sale, with three tinctures of lemon, blood orange and unflavored oil for just $108 instead of the $135 ticket price.
CBD, an abbreviation for cannabidiol found in the hemp plant, is now incorporated into drink mixes, skin salves, bath bombs and even food and beverages. While booming in popularity, many are still unsure what CBD is, or if it is psychoactive like its cousin chemical, THC.
Moving on to the topicals, there are too many to list, including a lip balm with 25mg of hemp-derived CBD per tube, and a high CBD formula bath salts jar, for warm baths of approximately 20 milligrams of CBD per bath or 240 in the whole container.
The new regulations will allow the cultivation, import, export, and industrial and commercial use of hemp with a THC content less than 0.2%, announced the prime minister’s office.
France will authorize products based on CBD, but the sale of dried flowers and leaves will remain prohibited, the AFP reported on Tuesday.
“Raw CBD flowers are often smoked and mixed with tobacco, which is harmful to health”, said a source familiar with the matter. The authorization of the flowers would have posed problems in the event of police control because without analysis of the seized herb, it would be impossible to know if the user has cannabis high in THC or is dominated by CBD.
French farmers will be allowed to cultivate CBD for the manufacture of derivative products and the activity of specialized shops will be clarified. The shops will be allowed to sell various products based on CBD, but will not be able to market raw flowers or leaves. “The placing on the market of floral tops or raw leaves for smoking or herbal tea is prohibited, as are products incorporating raw hemp,” said the prime minister’s office, adding that the restriction is “justified on grounds of public order and public health”.
France is by far the biggest hemp producer in Europe, with 17.900 hectares in 2018. At present, there are around 1800 hemp growers in France and more than 400 CBD shops. Products already for sale in those shops contain CBD of foreign origin. Last November, the Court of Justice of the European Union (CJEU) ruled that France can not prohibit the marketing of the product legally produced in other member countries, even when the product is extracted from the Cannabis sativa plant in its entirety and not solely from its fiber and seeds, as it is the case in France. In its decision, the CJEU stated that the prohibition may be justified by the objective of protecting public health.
