Everything You Need To Know About CBD In Puerto Rico
Is CBD Legal In Puerto Rico?
As you may have heard CBD was made federally legal after the passing of the 2018 Farm Bill, but where does that leave Puerto Rico? To fully understand we will take it down to the basics. U.S. Federal law applies to Puerto Rico, even though Puerto Rico is not a state of the American Union. On February 12, 2019, Puerto Rico Governor Ricardo Nevares signed an executive order to ensure Puerto Rico can benefit from the expansion of the hemp industry. Governer Nevares stated that this executive order will spark the agricultural industry and allow Puerto Rico to become a supplier in the rapidly growing industry.
What is CBD?
CBD or Cannabidiol is one of over 100 cannabinoids found in the cannabis-sativa plant. Unlike the well-known cannabinoid THC, CBD is non-intoxicating meaning it does not have a strong effect on cognitive brain activity and does not cause a "high". While THC and CBD are the most well-known cannabinoids, there are over 100 cannabinoids. Our bodies and brains have specific receptors that are designed to accept cannabinoids known as CB1 and CB2 receptors. These receptors are spread throughout the endocannabinoid system and are critical in how CBD is able to react with the human body.
How To Tell The Difference Between CBD Products
There are many choices in the CBD industry, especially after the passing of the 2018 Farm Bill. Here are a couple of tips and important points to consider when choosing the right CBD brand for you. The first question you want to ask yourself is what type of CBD product would be best for my clientele. In the CBD industry, there is no, one-size-fits-all model. There are three different types of CBD in the marketplace; isolate, broad-spectrum and full-spectrum, each has positives and negatives. If you would like to learn more about the different types please visit our blog post about the different types of CBD.
It is also important to ensure all products being sent to Puerto Rico contain 0.0% THC and are grown organically to ensure you receive a clean product that is free of all pesticides and heavy metals. All products in the industry should be third party tested to ensure clean products that meet expected potency.
