2018 proved to be a monumental year for CBD in the United States. The Farm Bill was passed, which distinguished CBD Hemp (as a legal substance) from marijuana (still, a federally illegal substance). As long as manufacturers only use hemp with ≤ 0.3 percent delta-9 THC, their products are technically legal in all 50 states. However, just because this is the federal law, doesn’t mean that all local legislatures are on the same page. 

In fact, the US Farm Bill actually gives each state a lot of room to develop their own hemp policies. That’s why it’s important to research the laws concerning hemp CBD products in your city before purchasing any in-person or online. 

Is CBD Still Illegal In Any States?

Most states introduced new hemp laws alongside the US Farm Bill in 2018. States that have a complete and explicit ban on CBD products are actually few and far between. With that said, there are a few places where CBD consumers could have a difficult time finding hemp products. 

For example, many Midwestern states have harsh restrictions on CBD products. South Dakota legislature, for instance, technically still doesn’t allow the sale of CBD within the state. Residents in Nebraska, Kansas, and Idaho may also face some difficulty, as they can’t legally purchase CBD products with over zero percent delta-9 THC.

This means that CBD consumers in these states can’t legally obtain full-spectrum CBD products, which do contain 0.3 percent delta-9 THC. While this small amount of THC won’t make someone “high,” it may provide benefits that customers won’t experience otherwise. 

Some states are cracking down on CBD edibles because the FDA still has not ruled on using CBD as a food additive. Since smokable hemp flower looks so much like marijuana flower, it might land you in a conversation with the authorities, if you live in a state with particularly harsh hemp laws. 

While the 2018 Farm Bill is federal law, and therefore supersedes state law, authorities in strict states might take issue with CBD consumption. Hemp laws are constantly changing, so it’s important to make sure the information you have for your area is up to date before shopping for CBD Products.
