Yes. The passing of the 2018 Farm Bill (the Agriculture Improvement Act of 2018) legalized hemp and the extraction of CBD from the Cannabis sativa L. plant at the federal level. Under the Farm Bill, provided that these plants and derivatives do not contain more than 0.3 percent THC “on a dry weight basis,” they are no longer consider controlled substances under federal law. Because of this, hemp is now considered an agricultural commodity.
However, despite the federal legality, individual states are still able to establish their own laws. As of early 2021, CBD is legal or legal with restrictions in all but three states (North Dakota, Nebraska, and Iowa). The states where CBD is legal with restrictions are: Idaho, South Dakota, Missouri, Mississippi, Georgia, South Carolina and New Hampshire.
Hemp-derived CBD differs from CBD derived from marijuana, which is remains illegal at the federal level. CBMD® products are formulated exclusively with hemp-derived CBD.
Lastly, an important point to bear in mind is that the legality of CBD does not ensure that manufacturers are following safe practices. Because the FDA does not regulate CBD currently, the market is flooded with products that are incorrectly labeled (having much more or less CBD than stated), have an illegal amount of THC, and contain unsafe solvents, pesticides, heavy metals, and even mold. CBMD® offers an alternative to these unregulated products. We provide a trackable batch number on each product. Entering the batch number on our website will show the certificate of analysis for each unique batch.
