CBD oil now legal in the US and Australia

The widely-restricted and misunderstood hemp have well-documented benefits. Now, CBD oil has been legalized in Australia and the United States.



Hemp is still a widely restricted and misunderstood crop but its benefits have been well documented, especially if you run a simple Google search online.

One of the newest updates on hemp comes in the form of cannabidiol (CBD) oil being legal in Australia and the United States. According to several news reports, residents of Australia and the United States can now purchase legal CBD oil without a medical cannabis card.

Benefits of hemp CBD oil

CBD oil has been studied since the early 2000s. The Realm of Caring Foundation pioneered this move as they used hemp CBD to treat pediatric epilepsy. Research is also showing positive results, according to, studies revealed that CBD can ease chronic pain, soothe symptoms of Crohn’s Disease, and help calm anxiety. Those who do not respond well to THC, non-psychoactive CBD oil is a good option to medicinal marijuana.

Current state of the legality of CBD oil

The question whether CBD oil is legal is a tricky subject as cannabidiol comes in two main forms. Cannabidiol can be sourced from medical marijuana plants or from industrially-grown hemp plants. While both are a variety of cannabis, they are grown and used for different purposes and those come with their own legal status.

Cannabidiol oil from industrial hemp is considered as a dietary supplement by the United States Food and Drug Administration. In addition to this, cannabidiol oil only contains a mere 0.3 percent of THC, unlike its psychoactive counterpart.

John Ryan, Director of Ananda Hemp, a multi-spectrum CBD oil, commented, “Many products on the market claim to be 50 state legal but the truth is that they are not. Most CBD on the marketplace today is imported from Europe or elsewhere.”

Luckily for those residing in the United States and Australia, there is no longer a need to source CBD oil from Europe or other parts of the world. Ananda Hemp, a whole flower extract, is derived from the industrial hemp plant. It contains a variety of cannabinoids such as CBD, terpenoids, and other phytonutrients.

What’s more, Ananda Hemp owns its products from seed to shelf – the genetics that underpins the product comes from over 18 years of work that started in Queensland, Australia. The certified seeds are used by Ananda Hemp’s 8th generation farmers in Kentucky to grow hemp outdoors with the full support of Mother Nature.

In addition to this, Ananda Hemp is grown in the United States under full legal protection under the section 7606 of the 2014 U.S. Farm Bill. Under this program’s strict requirements, customers are guaranteed that what they buy is legal to purchase, transport, and consume under Federal law.

Ryan added, “Nature is the architect behind the product. It contains all natural flower extracts, organic seed, and oil. There’s no synthetics, no artificial flavorings, no man-made ingredients. We wanted to make sure we could grow great crops. We could design a quality product. We could put the right systems in place. It’s time to spread the word, and we’re happy to share it.
