  6. 6. The abbreviation CBD stands for Cannabidiol. Cannabidiol is a chemical substance that is found in cannabis plants. It accounts for nearly 40 percent of the substances extracted from hemp plants. CBD gets a bad reputation because it is often confused with THC. THC is the intoxicating, illegal substance that allows users of marijuana to get high. Unlike with its cousin, you cannot get high from CBD. 1
  7. 7. If you're wondering if it is legal to sell CBD hemp oil, you're probably also wondering if CBD is legal to have and sell. The answer is YES. CBD derived from hemp is legal in all fifty states.
  8. 8. Like CBD on its own, CBD hemp oil is also legal to have and sell in all fifty states. It's considered to be a product of hemp. Hemp isn't and has never been illegal in the United States. It contains only trace amounts of THC – .03% and under to be exact. Not enough to make the user feel “high”, but just enough to allow the two compounds to work together more efficiently in what’s known as the entourage effect. So unlike marijuana, it's never been outlawed.
  9. 9. However, some states do have laws against growing it for commercial use. But even that is changing, with more states now allowing it. The Federal Drug Administration considers hemp to be a food-based product. Because it is legal, you can freely transport and sell hemp across state lines.
  10. 10. So is it legal to sell CBD hemp oil? The short answer is yes. The long answer is that there are plenty of regulations that you'll need to be aware of and follow in order to sell it. Just as you can freely transport and sell hemp across state lines, you can freely transport and sell CBD hemp oil in all fifty states.
  11. 11. However, this only applies to CBD hemp oil that is derived from industrial hemp plants grown in the states that allow that. CBD can also be derived from marijuana plants. If the CBD in question comes from one of these plants, it's use and sale is much more heavily regulated. CBD oil derived from marijuana plants requires a prescription from a doctor in order to buy. It is also only legal in certain states.
  12. 12. If you were to sell CBD oil derived from marijuana, you could only sell it in the states where medical marijuana is legal. You can also only sell it through a state licensed dispensary and only to those who have a prescription from a doctor. But if you're looking to buy or sell CBD hemp oil that is derived from a hemp plant, it is legal in all fifty states.
