Currently in the U.S., there are 34 states which have legalized medicinal cannabis use with an additional six (6) states allowing cannabidiol (CBD) derived from cannabis. Hemp contains little tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and higher concentrations of CBD. Hemp is federally legal throughout the U.S with manufacturing labs in many states. Globally, there are more than 50 countries which have legalized some variation of medical cannabis use. Many have restrictions on acceptable levels of THC due to its intoxicating properties. The defining factor between state and federally legal markets is that hemp must have ˂ 0.3% THC on a dried weight basis in flower form.
