The 2018 Farm Bill forever changed the history of hemp. 

But everyone still wants to know if CBD is legal…

Essentially the bill legalized the cultivation, production, consumption, and possession of hemp and hemp-derived products at the federal level. 

Seeing that CBD is derived from both hemp and its cousin plant marijuana, does this mean that hemp-derived CBD is now legal in all 50 states? 

Not exactly. 

Be that as it may, it’s pretty much really, really easy to obtain the best CBD hemp oil from anywhere in the world by just ordering online. Even if you’re camping in the middle of Alaska you can probably get it delivered in a couple of days (Thanks to Jeff Bezos)!

While technically CBD hemp oil should be legal everywhere, CBD laws by state still vary. Individual states still have the power to ban CBD if they see fit. 

We know you want to know if CBD is legal in your state.

Let’s take a look at current CBD laws by state so you can know once and for all if it’s legal for you to use CBD where you currently reside. 

*Note: we are discussing CBD derived from hemp in this article. When discussing FDA approved prescription CBD (Epidiolex) or marijuana-derived CBD, we will make it clear!*

And speaking of just that, before we dive into current CBD laws, it’s important to distinguish the difference between CBD sourced from hemp, and CBD sourced from marijuana.
