The Question on Everyone's Mind: Is CBD Legal?

Posted by Glory Finnegan on Mar 29, 2019 10:00:00 AM

 All hemp-lovers can identify with the struggle of loving CBD but kinda, sorta, not really understanding hemp's complicated legal context. Even though it's 2019 and you'd think this hemp stuff would be more straightforward, it's still somewhat difficult to make sense of. Here we'll clear up some confusion and get you up-to-date on the legality of hemp-derived CBD in the United States. 

What's the Legality of Hemp-Derived CBD?

Thanks to the 2018 Farm Bill, a poignant step in the era of 'hemp prohibiton', hemp has been permanently removed from the Drug Enforcement Agency's (DEA) Controlled Substances Act (CSA).

⌘ Hemp is now recognized as an agricultural commodity and will no longer be divided into the category of 'controlled substance', like marijuana.

With Congress' definitive removal of hemp products from the CSA, the DEA will no longer have the authority to become involved in interstate industries of hemp products, as long the THC is at or below 0.3%. 

What does this mean?

Hemp is no longer a controlled substance under federal law. Read the full statement on legality at U.S. Hemp Roundtable.
