A common question surrounding CBD has to do with the legality of the substance. CBD is legal in some places and illegal in others. We get it - the laws can be confusing!
In this article, we will breakdown the ever-changing laws of CBD and answer the question once and for all...
"Is CBD Oil Legal?"
CBD in the United States
In the United States, CBD extracted from hemp plants with less than 0.3% THC is legal on a federal level. CBD extracted from marijuana plants is not legal, however.
But the good news is… You don’t have to worry about CBD from marijuana when you use our Organic Full Spectrum CBD Oil! It comes from the best organic hemp farms in Colorado-- so our product is 100% legal in all 50 US states.
CBD Laws in Europe
Laws regarding CBD are different around the world.
As we’ve seen with the United States, the legality of CBD oil can differ from region to region as well. The same applies to CBD laws in Europe. The key difference between CBD laws in Europe and the US is that CBD in Europe usually cannot contain more than 0.2% THC.
If you recall, the limit is 0.3% THC in the United States, so it seems like a pretty minor detail...but it’s actually very important to know!
CBD is legal in these European countries...
- The Czech Republic
- Denmark, with a prescription
- The Republic of Cyprus
- The United Kingdom
CBD is not legal in these European countries…
Please note that each country’s CBD oil legal rulings are different (and changing). Visit the relevant country's government website for more information and updates.
The US Farm Bill of 2018
In 2018, the United States government passed a bill known as the US Farm Bill, which was a follow-up bill that succeeded the passing of the Farm Bill of 2014. The US Farm Bill of 2018 removed full spectrum and broad spectrum CBD products from the list of Schedule I drugs.
Also, the Farm Bill of 2018 opened the doors for hemp growers to utilize federal services.
Prior to the 2018 Farm Bill, hemp growers couldn't use government-owned banks to hold the money they made from hemp-related transactions. The Farm Bill 2018 was the turning point for acknowledging that hemp plants are legal in the US on a federal level.
The <0.3% THC Law for CBD
In order to label a cannabis product as CBD in the US, the product must contain no more than 0.3% THC.
A product with a higher concentration of THC is subsequently capable of causing psychoactive effects. This means that it can alter the mental state and influence the physical abilities of the person who consumes the product, which crosses the line between cannabis and marijuana.
Btw - if you’re curious why our Organic Full Spectrum CBD Oil For Pets label says “Full Spectrum Hemp Extract” and not "CBD Oil" it is because of the ever-changing regulation of CBD products. But don’t worry, our products are 100% legal, safe, and all-natural...for you and your pets.
