Craig created a new company, Extract Labs, that focuses on the “non-alcoholic beer” version of the same products above. The CBD oil products have the same types of ingestion models as above, but with none of the psychoactive effects of the THC type of cannabis. “Consider this the health and wellness side of the business.” Craig instructed. He also shared, “We have customers who use these products for depression, sleep assistance, PTSD, anxiety, high blood pressure, cancer, and pain relief, even severe pain relief.”

Hemp Oil contains phytocannabinoids, but it is not marijuana. Hemp contains more than 80 phytocannabinoids including CBD. It can be made from the seeds of the hemp plant. Hemp Oil is rich in polyunsaturated fats like Omega-6 and Omega-3 fatty acids, as well as Vitamin E. Hemp Oil can be used in cooking, shampoos, soaps, and because of the high Vitamin E content it is an anti-oxidant that can help the body fight off the catabolic effects of stress. Unlike CBD oil, hemp oil has a nutritional value. It can be consumed in capsule form as well.
Natural CBD Oil and Hemp Oil do not contain enough THC to be illegal (or get you high). It is negligible at best, but must be under .3% to be used on the market as Hemp or CBD Oil.

However, the non-psychoactive CBD has been gaining popularity throughout the media and scientific community (see links to studies below) with noticeable recovery benefits without the illegal substances and carcinogens of some forms of marijuana. CDB oil has been shown to help the patients enduring cancer treatments, and used to treat many ailments such as epilepsy, psychological problems, and has anti-inflammatory benefits as well.

What is the military stance on using such products even if they contain no THC (the psychoactive drug)? In this article, we dig into the differences between the two and benefits being tested right now and answer the biggest question – Are these considered marijuana and illegal to use?
