Legality of CBD Oil Under The 2018 Farm Bill
The new farm bill removes hemp and its derivatives from the federal list of controlled substances effectively legalizing hemp and cannabinoids like CBD. The law also establishes that hemp is to be regulated by the Department of Agriculture as a legal crop, whereas the Justice Department previously managed it as an illegal substance.
By removing hemp and CBD from the list of controlled substances, the 2018 Farm Bill legally dissociates hemp and its cannabinoids from marijuana. As a result, CBD is legal for consumption nationwide.
