The U.S. federal government has recently legalized CBD. If followed the guidelines, companies are allowed to grow, manufacture, sell, and transport hemp and CBD infused products across the states.
Complicated Laws Leads to Confusion!
Sometimes we may get confused about CBD's legality in the United States because of complicated laws. According to the Controlled Substances Act under Schedule I, Cannabidiol is not accepted for medical use. It contains 'high potential for abuse", but here we are talking about those Cannabidiol extracted from the Cannabis plant that contains a high amount of THC. 2018 Farm Bill says CBD from industrial hemp is excluded from the CSA because it has low THC, which led to its legalization. Using CBD extracted from hemp with a THC content of less than 0.3% is legal across the United States.
States that have legalized CBD Oil -
Out of 50 states, 33 have legalized marijuana, and 17 states have passed laws allowing CBD use. CBD can be used in oil form for the treatment of epilepsy. CBD extracted from Hemp is legal, but many cities and states still haven’t reached the levels of federal laws. For example, products having any amount of THC are still illegal in Texas.
How is CBD sold in the U.S?
If CBD is legal in a state, it can be sold in products or supplements form. In Colorado, a company growing and harvesting hemp can sell CBD gummies. If a product is manufactured in a particular state, it can't be sold across state lines. Colorado made CBD gummies can't be sold in California—unless the company puts out creative labels.
Products labeled as "active hemp extract" can be sold throughout the 50 states. Products that are not marketed as foods or supplements with CBD's medicinal effects are exempt from these regulations.
