CBD from hemp does not need to be considered illegal because it contains no more than 0.3% THC or if it is under the Agricultural Act of 2018.

Personally, I started to use hemp-based products with Hemp Protein due to it being known as vegan and gluten-free. As someone who has Celiac and being lactose intolerant, I prefer to lean towards the vegan side due to it being easier for the intolerant issues that I struggle with.

Once I started using one product I was interested in knowing what else can Hemp do for me and my health issues. I started to look at the topical hemp infused healing balm with CBD and botanicals to help with my joint pain. I have personally used hemp in many different forms and it has truly changed my health in the best form.
