Is CBD legal?

The short answer: Yes, CBD is legal in all US states, but… under very specific conditions.  


You are here in The Salon Breakroom, so we know you are all about knowledge and creating the life you want.  So read on…for the legal essentials behind CBD (well, a few quick points, you can ask google for the long version).


FARM BILL

Not to get too deep in politics, the reason there is an influx of CBD availability is that the laws changed!  In 2018, the US President passed the Agricultural Improvement Act of 2018 (also known as the 2018 Farm Bill), which removed hemp as a Schedule 1 substance  (which is where marijuana, LSD and a few other drugs reside) and reclassified it as an “agricultural commodity.” Thus, making CBD/hemp Legal.


Hemp-derived CBD oil is made from high-CBD, low-THC hemp, unlike most medical marijuana products, which are usually made from plants with high concentrations of THC a.k.a psychoactive tetrahydrocannabinol.


Law Abiding CBD

Hemp-derived CBD is federally legal, as long as it adheres to the law (guidelines below)

· The hemp must contain less than 0.3% THC   

· The hemp must adhere to the shared state-federal regulations

· The hemp must be grown by a properly licensed grower


To fall under the 2018 farm bill, the CBD is legal if it is derived from hemp.


There is still a lot of misinformation and many have skewed understanding of CBD; like is it legal? Is all CBD the same? Will I get high?  etc.  Which is why I love talking about it,


The status of CBD has become more defined with recent reforms, but some laws are still unclear.


So basically… check with your specific state for their laws on CBD from Marijuana, but CBD from Hemp is totes legal, thank you farm bill.




The fine print: 

*And of course like all supplements, check with your medical provider to see if it is right for you.
