CBD'S LEGAL STATUS
The Legalities of CBD
CBD is now legal nationwide thanks to a new set of laws enacted in late 2018. This set of legislative rules, known as the Agriculture Improvement Act, removed hemp and hemp-derived products from the federal list of controlled substances and categorized them as an agricultural crop. This effectively legalized hemp, and hemp-derived products, at the federal level. The bill also established that hemp is to be regulated by the Department of Agriculture with the help of individual state agencies. Previously, the Justice Department managed hemp as an illegal crop.
So Is CBD Oil Legal in All 50 States?
Thanks to the Agriculture Improvement Act, also known as the 2018 Farm Bill, the legality of hemp products is no longer under scrutiny. This has allowed the CBD industry to make huge strides in recent years. In addition to legalizing the hemp farming nationwide, the bill also allows for the legal transportation of the plant across state lines, meaning hemp companies can ship their products nationwide confidently. However, the bill also allows individual jurisdictions to impose restrictions on CBD production and marketing, so we recommend you familiarize yourself with your state’s laws surrounding hemp and CBD.
