Cannabidiol from Industrial Hemp
Cannabidiol oil that comes from industrial hemp plants. The FDA of the United States considers hemp oil (and it’s derivative CBD) to be a dietary supplement (not a medication), since they are made from industrial hemp plants.
If you live in the US, this means you don’t need a prescription and can legally purchase and consume Cannabidiol in any state.
Cannabidiol from industrial hemp also has the added benefit of having virtually no THC. This is why it’s not possible to get “high” with our products. There simply isn’t enough THC.
Luckily, despite heavy pushes, kratom is legal in the majority of states with in the US. Different states have different regulations on it, and each state’s bill is worded differently, some banning kratom outright, and some banning only specific alkaloids from the plant. Because of this, it is necessary to look into state bills and learn the consequences if living in one of these states.

Keeping Kratom Legal
We applaud anyone who wants to join the fight to keep kratom legal. There are many people who need this plant to maintain a comfortable standard of living due to medical conditions, and fighting against misinformation and misrepresentation is one of the best means of evoking change.
One of the primary reasons that this plant has had such bad publicity is because it is commonly sold in head shops, besides other dangerous research chemical, despite merely being a plant. This has caused a variety of state laws to lump kratom and related extracts in with a variety of other dangerous substances. Standing up against head shop sales of this plant could do wonders to keep this plant legal.
Another fantastic way to evoke change is to email your congressman in states where kratom’s status is tentative, or illegal. Many bills have already been shot down due to the vocal advocates voicing their concern. By adding your voice, the chances of keeping this plant legal can only improve
