No it’s not! In 2014, the Federal Government declared industrial hemp legal. Still, the cultivation of hemp is only legal in certain states (read more about that here).

The question of hemp’s legality is the result of a common misconception. Hemp is a member of the cannabis plant family, so it’s frequently associated with marijuana. However, the primary difference is the level of Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) contained in each plant (THC is the drug that produces that “high” feeling). Marijuana has much greater levels of THC.

By federal law, hemp must contain less than 0.3% of THC to be considered legal. If the level of THC exceeds 0.3%, the product is considered psychoactive and illegal.

No. There is no psychoactive levels of THC in our products.

Not all hemp is created equal and as a consumer, it’s technically your responsibility to research the products you purchase and use.

HOWEVER, Brooklyn Hempology has done this research for you!

We’ve carefully vetted our partners and guarantee that every product we sell has been sourced only from manufacturers that guarantee less than 0.3% THC.

CBD (short for Cannabidiol) is one of the most popular compounds found in hemp and is unique in that it displays a broad range of potential therapeutic applications, making it an especially attractive agent in a variety of wellness products.

CBD is typically available in two forms: “Full spectrum CBD” extract will include all of the cannabinoids from the plant, while “CBD isolate” will be a more concentrated form of CBD with higher purity.

CBD comes from the cannabis plant. People refer to cannabis plants as either hemp or marijuana, depending on their level of THC. Hemp plants that are legal under the Farm Bill must contain less than 0.3% THC.

Over the years, marijuana farmers have selectively bred their plants to contain high levels of THC and other compounds that interested them, often because the compounds produced a smell or had another effect on the plant's flowers.

However, hemp farmers have rarely modified the plant. These hemp plants are used to create CBD oil.

It’s important to understand that the FDA has yet to designate CBD as a health product. Any company that makes specific claims about the health benefits or capabilities of its CBD products is posing an unnecessary risk to its customers and its own business. That’s not a disclaimer, that’s a fact.

Brooklyn Hempology is an advocate for the greater public awareness and education of the potential benefits of CBD and we encourage everyone to take advantage of the wealth of research that is available online.

CBD extracted from industrial hemp (meaning the plant contains less than 0.3% of THC) is not illegal. However, as we mentioned above, hemp can have illegal levels of THC (greater than 0.3%). In addition, CBD extracted from the marijuana plant will likely contain high levels of THC, making it illegal.

CBD may benefit a person's health in a variety of ways.

Natural pain relief and anti-inflammatory properties

People tend to use prescription or over-the-counter drugs to relieve stiffness and pain, including chronic pain.

Some people believe that CBD offers a more natural alternative.

Researchers have suggested that the non-psychoactive compounds in marijuana, such as CBD, could provide a new treatment for chronic pain.

Quitting smoking and drug withdrawals

Some promising evidence suggests that CBD use may help people to quit smoking.

More research is necessary, but these findings suggest that CBD may help to prevent or reduce withdrawal symptoms.


After researching the safety and effectiveness of CBD oil for treating epilepsy, the FDA approved the use of CBD (Epidiolex) as a therapy.

In the U.S., a doctor can prescribe Epidiolex to treat:

Lennox-Gastaut syndrome (LGS), a condition that appears between the ages of 3 and 5 years and involves different kinds of seizures

Dravet syndrome (DS), a rare genetic condition that appears in the first year of life and involves frequent, fever-related seizures

The types of seizures that characterize LGS or DS are difficult to control with other types of medication.

Anxiety disorders

Doctors often advise people with chronic anxiety to avoid cannabis, as THC can trigger or amplify feelings of anxiousness and paranoia.

Researchers have found that CBD may help to reduce anxiety in people with certain related disorders.

CBD potentially could reduce anxiety-related behaviors in people with conditions such as:

post-traumatic stress disorder

general anxiety disorder

panic disorder

social anxiety disorder

obsessive-compulsive disorder
