CBD is Legal
Let’s look back in time to the early twentieth century:
Hemp was legal in the United States until Congress passed the Marihuana Tax Act of 1937, Pub.L. 75–238, 50 Stat. 551, enacted August 2, 1937 (and YES it was spelt with an ‘H’). This was a United States Act that placed a tax on the sale of cannabis. The law was spearheaded by Rep. Anslinger, an infamous anti-cannabis prohibitionist and the head of the Federal Bureau of Narcotics (FBN). In the 1930s, Hemp was the general term used by people for cannabis.
Nearly 80 years later, the 2014 Farm Bill took the position that states can regulate the production of hemp and, as a result, CBD.
In 2018, the US government passed the Farm Bill that made it federally legal to grow hemp.
This means that if they’re compliant with their state laws, consumers everywhere can grow hemp and use hemp products. This includes any FDA-approved products including CBD Oil derived from Hemp.
In other words, this bill has removed hemp from the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) remit. But while it’s legal under federal law, each state can set its own policy.
These policies vary widely (as of November 2020):
- Marijuana and CBD are currently fully legal for both medicinal and recreational purposes in 11 states – Alaska, California, Colorado, Maine, Massachusetts, Michigan, Nevada, Oregon, Vermont, Washington, and Washington D.C.
- In 23 states, it’s legal in some form, such as for medicinal purposes.
- Another 14 states permit just CBD oil.
- But both are illegal in Idaho, Nebraska, and South Dakota.
So, Snug CBD products are legal and can be bought and shipped to all US States with the exception of Idaho, Nebraska, and South Dakota
