Wild Hemp’s Guide to CBD Legality Across the United States

The CBD market has increased in popularity at a staggering rate over the last several years, and of course none of its popularity would have been possible without the transformation of hemp laws in our country.  Because of these relatively new laws regarding the hemp plant and its star compound cannabidiol (CBD), we have been able to enjoy CBD more easily than ever before, with hemp and CBD-derived products being accessible on the market.

Still, even after all these years, there remains quite a bit of confusion regarding the specifics of hemp laws in our country, especially when you examine them on a state level.

Federal Law

Most of us know that in 2018, the United States passed the Farm Bill, which finally legalized the hemp plant including its individual derivatives so that CBD enthusiasts could legally purchase a wide range of hemp products, both in person and online.  This piece of legislation clearly mentions that all hemp products can be sold and purchased legally as long as a person is of age in their state, and as long as the hemp products being sold contain a maximum of 0.3% delta 9 THC, the amount that naturally occurs in hemp anyway.

Under federal law, there are no restrictions when it comes to possession amounts, nor are there restrictions on the types of hemp products that can be sold in terms of their formulations or how they are delivered into the body.  CBD products can also contain any strength that the manufacturer sees fit.

CBD Laws According to State
