State-to-State CBD & THC Laws

Which CBD products are legal in which state?

CBD (cannabidiol) is a compound derived from the cannabis plant. Cannabis has been federally illegal since 1937. As long as cannabis has been illegal, so has CBD—even though it has no intoxicating qualities. But CBD & THC laws changed in 2018. To be clear, the CBD & THC laws stem from the USDA FARM BILL and FDA regulations. The most update regulations are as follows: persons must be 18 years-old or above, and because of changes in “the 2018 Farm Bill, [which] removed hemp from the definition of marijuana in the CSA…[Cannabis is now defined as] cannabis derivatives that have no more than 0.3% THC by dry weight, including cannabinoids such as CBD,[ and as such are legal.]”

BUT, and this is the tricky part, the FDA left the legality up to each state. So, you have to do your homework before you purchase, possess, and use. Take it from Rob, messing with CBD & THC laws are no joke. Thankfully laws of drastically changed since his possession arrest in 2006. Be smart, and check before you start.
