Where is CBD Legal?

January 26, 2018

According to U.S. state and federal law, hemp-derived CBD oil is legal in the United States and in over 40 countries worldwide.

Where is CBD legal? We know that understanding the legality around cannabis products has always been a bit of a challenge. Laws in different U.S. states change and get updated all of the time, and because in many cases federal law supersedes state law, it’s nearly impossible to keep up on exactly what types of cannabis products are legal where you live.

As always, we’re here for you.

So is CBD oil legal in the United States? The answer is YES!

Cannabis oil (CBD oil), or CBD, is a federally legal nutritional supplement, provided that it’s made from hemp.

CBD Hemp Oil Legal in the United States and Over 40 Countries

CBD oil sourced from hemp is legal in the United States, no doctor’s recommendation or medical marijuana card needed.

How? While cannabis products like marijuana and THC are illegal under federal law, CBD itself is not specifically listed in the U.S. Controlled Substances Act.

At the federal level, the definition of the illegal parts of cannabis specifically excludes hemp’s “mature stalks,” “oil or cake made from the seeds,” and “sterilized seeds.” These “not cannabis” parts of hemp are the products that we use to legally make our CBD hemp oil supplements.

The passage of the 2018 Farm Bill further clarified that hemp CBD is legal. The bill included groundbreaking provisions that fully legalize hemp and hemp-derived products like CBD oil in the U.S. That bill, which took effect immediately, makes hemp-derived CBD legal under U.S. federal law.

Do keep in mind that states can take their own unique legal approach and they may govern hemp-derived CBD, and even pass their own policies that make CBD illegal. Some states have chosen to do so – unfortunately placing hemp CBD products into the same category as marijuana. As a general rule, however, hemp-derived CBD is more often than not accessible in the U.S.

What is the CBD law elsewhere in the world? CBD oil derived from hemp is also legal in over 40 countries worldwide.

This is good news for those who have come to rely on CBD and its ability to keep the body running at its best! For so many people in the U.S. and internationally, hemp CBD is legally accessible to promote balance and encourage better performance, often times without the need for a doctor’s recommendation.

Our CBD Oil Comes from Hemp

All of Dixie Botanicals® CBD oil products are made from a unique variety of high-CBD European hemp. Hemp is a member of the Cannabis sativa L. plant species that contains less than 0.3% THC by weight, which means our CBD oil products will not get you high when taken at suggested servings.

Instead, hemp is naturally abundant in CBD, or cannabidiol, a non-psychoactive compound that interacts with our natural systems to make sure they’re running smoothly. CBD interacts with the body’s  endocannabinoid system, a signaling network in charge of keeping functions like mood, metabolism, sleep, and immune response in check.

Hemp-based CBD oil is treated as a dietary supplement, which means products are available to purchase online nationwide. You know that full-spectrum CBD hemp oil is an excellent source of CBD, but did you know it also contains the following nutrients?

  • Omega 3 and Omega 6 essential fatty acids
  • Vitamins A, B, C, and E
  • Iron
  • Calcium
  • Magnesium
  • Beta-Carotene
  • Various other cannabinoids
