CBD FROM HEMP IS LEGAL AT LAST!!!

The era of hemp prohibition is over. Hemp is now permanently removed from the Controlled Substances Act (CSA). It is forever deemed an agricultural commodity, no longer mistaken as a controlled substance such as marijuana.

By redefining hemp to include its “extracts, cannabinoids and derivatives,” Congress explicitly has removed popular hemp products — such as hemp-derived cannabidiol (CBD) — from the purview of the CSA. Accordingly, the Drug Enforcement Administration no longer has any possible claim to interfere with the interstate commerce of hemp products.

KEY POINTS OF THE NEW LAW:

  • Hemp is removed from the definition of “marihuana” under the Controlled Substances Act, and THC found in hemp is excluded from the definition of a controlled substance. (Section 12619, p. 540).
  • Defines hemp as all parts of the plant less than 0.3% THC, including “derivatives,” “extracts” and “cannabinoids” and permits hemp production in all states and territories. (Section 297A, p. 429).
  • Empowers states and Tribes to submit plans to USDA to implement a permanent hemp growing program. (Section 297B(a)-(d), p. 429).
  • Individuals who commit drug felonies cannot participate in state or Tribal growth programs for 10 years following the date of their conviction. However, participants in the 2014 Farm Bill pilot programs are grandfathered in to participate in permanent programs despite any prior felony committed. (Section 297B(e)(3)(B), p. 432).
  • The Act does not prohibit the interstate commerce of hemp and bars States and Tribes from prohibiting the transportation of hemp or hemp products through their territories. (Section 10114, p. 435).
  • Hemp is now included in the USDA’s supplemental and alternative crops programs (Section 7129, p. 313) and the USDA’s critical agricultural materials programs (Section 7501, p. 338).
  • Hemp farmers are made eligible for crop insurance, and marketability requirements for the crop insurance program can be waived. (Title XI, p. 439).

WHAT THIS MEANS FOR YOU

CBD derived from hemp is now fully legal on a federal level meaning federal agencies such as the DEA cannot interfere in the production or sale of CBD from hemp. Stores across the country can now sell CBD from hemp without fear that they may be breaking the law. IT IS NOW LEGAL IN ALL 50 STATES – on the federal level. Nevertheless, it is important to understand that States may still regulate CBD within their own borders. If you are buying CBD products, it is important to check with your local law enforcement or Attorney General to understand how your local authorities will treat hemp products.

WARNING: CBD derived from non-hemp defined cannabis is still defined as “marihuana” and is illegal pursuant to the Controlled Substances Act. It is extremely important to know where your CBD comes from and to always makes sure that your CBD is derived from hemp from a licensed and certified grower.
