Even in today’s day and age, there is still a ton of confusion surrounding the status of hemp and CBD – and Hawaii is no exception. Many CBD manufacturers across the U.S. extract cannabinoid-rich oil from hemp, which of course was a popular topic of interest when the 2018 Farm Bill was passed. Hemp of course is a non-intoxicating member of the ‘infamous’ plant family, though it contains negligible (less than 0.3%) levels of THC.
In terms of hemp-derived products, there do appear to be quite a few CBD stores in Hawaii. This may be surprising to some given some of the information the Hawaii DOH has on their website. Still, countless amounts of state residents continue to go to stores to buy CBD oil in Hawaii, with the hopes that they’re getting a reliable, well-made product.
Unfortunately, it’s usually not so cut and dry as this. Even though there is CBD for sale in Hawaii, the quality of products that one might find in Hawaii CBD stores will vary tremendously. Customers rarely have the opportunity to look at things like dedicated lab reports, which highlight the specific phytochemical contents of a product in question.
With this in mind, consumers should be wary when it comes to the broad range of CBD products that may be at their disposal in the state of Hawaii. Just because you can find hundreds of different CBD products for sale, doesn’t mean they’re all (or any of them, for that matter) made with quality extraction practices.
For instance, one might find dozens of different CBD stores in Hawaii that stock things like CBD oils, edibles, capsules, gummies, vapes, topicals, and more. Before you go spending your hard-earned cash on these products, it pays to learn a little about what you’re actually buying. And more importantly, what’s actually in the product you’re buying.
This goes for anyone interested in buying CBD oil in Hawaii. Do your research, read through some of the state’s informational resources, and know what you’re doing before you walk into the first random Hawaii CBD store you happen to come across.
With that out of the way, let’s go over a few different types of CBD products that are available in some parts of the USA. After that, we’ll talk about the current situation regarding industrial hemp in Hawaii.
