A lot of people are curious about the Legality of CBD in the United States. Legal CBD products have become increasingly popular in recent years thanks to the 2018 Farm Bill, which allows for the cultivation of hemp and the sale of hemp-derived products on US soil. Despite the FDA’s approval of CBD products, some states are not completely clear on the legality of CBD.

Legal Status of CBD in Each State

Let us see if CBD is legal in all 50 states or if some states are still catching up to CBD’s benefits as a medicine and recreational product.

Here is a quick rundown on the legality status and special laws of CBD in all 50 states:

  • Wyoming: CBD oil products are legal if the source is hemp and the THC content is less than 0.3%.
  • Virginia: CBD is legal if it is obtained legally and adheres to FDA regulations. CBD with less than 0.5% THC can also be used for medical reasons.
  • Texas: CBD products that contain less than 0.3% THC are legal to use. CBD for medical purposes, on the other hand, is legal as long as the THC content is less than 0.5%
  • Utah: Legal to use CBD oil with less than 0.3% THC. CBD edibles are illegal, except for gelatin cubes.
  • Wisconsin: In Wisconsin, the law is unclear on whether CBD products are legal or not. Possession of CBD products is a misdemeanor that can result in a jail sentence. The attorney general, on the other hand, advised law enforcement not to enforce the law. It is recommended that you get a physician’s certificate if you plan to use CBD oil in Wisconsin.
  • North Carolina: Illegal to grow hemp but allowed for medical use as long as it has less than 0.9% THC.

  • South Dakota: CBD has recently been legalized in South Dakota. As long as the FDA approves the CBD product, it is legal in South Dakota
  • Oklahoma: When defining CBD products approved by the FDA, the word “marijuana” was left out. CBD oil and products are also legal as long as they are FDA-approved and contain less than 0.3% THC.
