Is CBD legal in 2021?
In short: Yes! CBD is federally legal in 2021.
Since the US Farm Bill of 2018, hemp (cannabis sativa) is a federally recognized legal agricultural crop. As a consumer, CBD is now so easy to obtain, you don’t even need to visit a cannabis dispensary to buy it! Dispensary grade CBD from hemp can even be safely and quickly purchased online.
Hemp growers, manufacturers and sellers are still subject to strict regulations, however, and with good reason:
Hemp and marijuana often look, smell and taste exactly the same! That often leads to confusion, and as a result an entire penal code has been implemented to control the hemp marketplace.
What’s the difference?
Marijuana is defined as cannabis with anything over 0.3% THC, and is often tested with THC levels exceeding 60-80%! High levels of THC can cause intoxication, therefore marijuana is: ONLY LEGAL IN SOME PLACES
Hemp is defined as cannabis with trace amounts (<0.3%) of the psychoactive cannabinoid THC. Such low levels of THC do not cause intoxication. Therefore, hemp is: FEDERALLY LEGAL
All of our products are derived from organic, US grown hemp. We work closely with the Alaska Industrial Hemp Program, established April 2020, which ensures that federal standards are met and that any hemp CBD derived product sold in the state has been thoroughly tested for safety. Every single one of our products has been reviewed and endorsed by the State of Alaska in addition to following all federal regulations.
Even though CBD is federally legal, certain locations sometimes have their own rules, so check your local laws if you aren’t sure.
