Is CBD Oil Legal?

In recent years, the legality of CBD oil and other products derived from hemp or marijuana has been a hot-button issue.

Historically, hemp could legally be grown and cultivated for academic research purposes only. However, the legality of hemp growth has changed in the past year. In April 2018, Sen. Mitch McConnell of Kentucky introduced the Hemp Farming Act of 2018, a piece of legislation that proposed legalizing all hemp products at the federal level. The act was incorporated in the 2018 United States Farm Bill, which passed in both the House and Senate in December 2018. Per the farm bill, industrial hemp will be descheduled as a federally controlled substance.

Still, the legality of marijuana-based CBD oil also varies from state to state. The table below lists general guidelines for hemp- and marijuana-based CBD oil consumption based on different state laws.
