  • On Wednesday, March 21, 2018, Indiana Governor Eric Holcomb signed into law Senate Bill 52, which legalized CBD oil (having .3 or less THC content) for all. This comes after a turbulent set of months, which kicked off in November 2017 after the State Attorney General issued an opinion that under the applicable law (HEA 1148) CBD oil was only legal for those on the State’s registry.

  • Can you address the changes in WI where the DOJ is determined to ban hemp oil sales and has even halted our newly passed industrial hemp growing leaving farmers scrambling.

    • Hey Pati. The legal situation with CBD remains a challenge but I’m confident things are going to get better. This will take time, as all things of value do, but I do believe the law will change in our favor soon. I appreciate you taking the time to comment on this important topic.

  • For Georgia On May 7, 2018, Gov. Deal signed HB 65 into law, which adds PTSD and intractable pain to the list of approved conditions. I am trying to find out more about this, as my mental health provider told me to “drive to colorado” to buy cbd oil when I objected to him raising the dosage on the medicine I am currently taking for PTSD.

    • Hey Jennifer. Thanks for your inquiry. I know it can be frustrating when you have different kinds of information coming at you from both sides. I don’t think you need to drive to Colorado. While this isn’t legal advice, I think most CBD oil distributors online will ship CBD oil to you. You can also look into North Carolina, where there’s a strong CBD movement and that’s not too far from you. The best thing to do is check the laws where you live and proceed from there. You can always speak with a lawyer if you want the most accurate advice. Again, I don’t see why you would have any issues ordering CBD hemp oil and getting it shipped directly to your home. I am not a lawyer so I cannot provide legal advice but if you have more questions, I’ll do my best to help πŸ™‚

  • Thanks for this awesome concise view at this often misunderstood issue. Hopefully there is a day soon where we won’t have to compare states and contradictory federal laws to understand the legality of such a great compound.

  • When the Federal District, and Capital of this Country~Washington DC, says Cannabis is LEGAL and CBD use is protected under cannabis laws, WHY is it Still ILLEGAL for everyone else EXCEPT for those who are making Cannabis Use ILLEGAL in the First Place?! Does that make ANY Sense At All?? Wake Up People!! If something is ok and Legal for the lawmakers of this country, WHY is it Illegal for the rest of us? It can’t be all Too bad if it is legal and safe for them to use. And if it’s legal and safe for them, that would mean it is safe for us, as well. So, what are they Really trying to hide and keep from us by making it Illegal??
