Recently, there has been a sharp rise in the use of cannabis products such as hemp and CBD oils in the United States of America. This is largely due to decriminalization and legalization of recreational marijuana across many states. However, marijuana remains illegal on the federal level because it contains the psychoactive component, Δ9-tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). THC is currently listed as a schedule 1 drug, meaning there is no accepted medical use, but it has a high potential for abuse. This research primarily focused on determining how much CBD, the non-psychoactive component is in 5 commercial hemp oil product.
