What is CBD?
Cannabidiol is a chemical in the Cannabis sativa plant, also known as marijuana or hemp. Over 80 chemicals, known as cannabinoids, have been identified in the Cannabis sativa plant. While delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) is the major active ingredient in marijuana, cannabidiol is also obtained from hemp, which contains only very small amounts of THC.
CBD vs. THC
CBD and THC have the same chemical formula -- 21 carbon atoms, 30 hydrogen atoms, and two oxygen atoms. The difference lies in the way the atoms are arranged. That gives CBD and THC different chemical properties, and they affect your body differently.
Both CBD and THC work with receptors that release neurotransmitters in your brain.
Gooden Corporation's CBD Products Facts
We at Gooden Corporation do not sell marijuana. We provide products containing Hemp CBD in the following forms: Cannabinoid Distillate (CBDD), Cannabinoid Crude Oil (CBDC), Cannabinoid Isolate (CBDI), and Cannabinoid Flowers (Hemp Flowers). Hemp CBD is legal in 50 states; therefore, it is legal for Gooden Corporation to ship our Hemp CBD products to all 50 states.
All Hemp CBD products are derived from the sativa cannabis plant. Cannabis produces two flowers, marijuana and hemp. Marijuana yields a high percentage of THC and a low percentage of CBD. Hemp, on the other hand, yields a high percentage of CBD and a low percentage of THC. For our products containing Hemp CBD to be legal in all 50 states, each product contains 0.03% of THC or less.
The Agriculture Improvement Act of 2018 (2018 Farm Bill) was signed into law and it is what allows Gooden Corporation to legally sell and ship Hemp CBD products to our customers. To ensure that Gooden Corporation's CBD products are within the guidelines set forth in the 2018 Farm Bill, all of our Hemp CBD products are tested by reputable and certified testing agencies.
The Agriculture Improvement Act of 2018
The Agriculture Improvement Act of 2018 (2018 Farm Bill) authorized the production of hemp and removed hemp and hemp seeds from the Drug Enforcement Administration’s (DEA) schedule of Controlled Substances. It also directed the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) to issue regulations and guidance to implement a program to create a consistent regulatory framework around production of hemp throughout the United States. The establishment of hemp as a regulated commodity also paves the way for U.S. hemp farmers to participate in other USDA farm programs.
At the federal level, the Agriculture Improvement Act of 2018, Pub. L. 115-334, (the 2018 Farm Bill) was signed into law on Dec. 20, 2018. Among other things, this new law changes certain federal authorities relating to the production and marketing of hemp, defined as "the plant Cannabis sativa L. and any part of that plant, including the seeds thereof and all derivatives, extracts, cannabinoids, isomers, acids, salts, and salts of isomers, whether growing or not, with a delta-9 tetrahydrocannabinol concentration of not more than 0.3 percent on a dry weight basis." These changes include removing hemp from the CSA, which means that cannabis plants and derivatives that contain no more than 0.3 percent THC on a dry weight basis are no longer controlled substances under federal law.
The 2018 Farm Bill, however, explicitly preserved FDA’s authority to regulate products containing cannabis or cannabis-derived compounds under the FD&C Act and section 351 of the Public Health Service Act (PHS Act). FDA treats products containing cannabis or cannabis-derived compounds as it does any other FDA-regulated products — meaning they’re subject to the same authorities and requirements as FDA-regulated products containing any other substance. This is true regardless of whether the cannabis or cannabis-derived compounds are classified as hemp under the 2018 Farm Bill. Click here to view Act.
