Is CBD legal in all 50 states?

Hemp has been legalized federally since the Farm Bill in 2018 which reclassified Hemp as legal. This automatically made Hemp-derived CBD products legal in all 50 states so you’ll assume CBD or any Cannabinoid is legal in your state but it’s not so simple. 

CBD’s legality depends on how it’s made and the purpose of it. CBD can be sourced from hemp or marijuana which still remains illegal in some states. Even if cannabis is legal in your state, the legality of the CBD sourced from marijuana could vary if the CBD is for medical or recreational use. 

The Farm Bill

The 2018 farm bill is legislation that was passed in the US to reauthorize many expenditures in the prior US farm bill from 2014. One of the big changes of the bill was the federal legalization of Hemp, making CBD available and legal in all 50 states. However, the bill still gives the power to each state to oversee the legality of hemp and restrict it. Between 2018 and 2019, 3 states banned any form of CBD but fortunately the ban didn’t last long and now those states welcome CBD with certain restrictions.
