"Products and materials that are made from the cannabis plant and which fall outside the CSA definition of marijuana are not controlled under the CSA. Such products may accordingly be sold and otherwise distributed throughout the United States without restriction under the CSA or its implementing regulations. The mere presence of cannabinoids is not itself dispositive as to whether a substance is within the scope of the CSA;"
There are over 100 different cannabinoids in the marijuana plant. Scientifically known as cannabis sativa, the plant is generally associated with two molecules, Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and Cannabidiol (CBD). Among the most abundant of the chemical compounds is CBD, which may account for almost half of the plant’s extracts.
