Is CBD Containing Less Than .3% THC Legal in Your State?
As the Farm Bill passed in December of 2018, there are a lot of questions going around about the legality of CBD. While the Farm Bill makes it legal federally to produce hemp that (when dry) contains less than .3 percent of THC, the psychoactive ingredient found in marijuana, each state is still able to create new or enforce current laws that prohibit its use.
While less than .3% of THC is not going to cause a psychoactive effect to users, it could still show up on a drug test. There is also, currently, no real regulation for what producers put on their labels. It is very possible for companies to say their product contains or doesn't contain THC and it is going unchecked. This is what is causing issues with state regulators.
