The 2018 Farm Bill legalized the growth of hemp for CBD production on an industrial level. Hemp-derived CBD is legal nationwide at the federal level however state laws on CBD vary widely. The most important factors determining CBD legality are whether it is derived from hemp or marijuana and if it is produced by a state-licensed grower. Even though hemp contains virtually no THC, the answer to the question, “Is hemp oil legal?” is not that simple. This includes all hemp-derived CBD products like oils, edibles, and ointments. However, some states have laws on
CBD from hemp that are restrictive. In some states, CBD derived from marijuana is completely legal; but in most states, its legality depends on a number of different factors and conditions.*
