Is CBD Legal in Alabama?
Yes – hemp-derived CBD is legal under federal law and, as of December 2018, is considered legal under state law because of a provision in the farm bill that passed legalizing industrial hemp.
Alabama Attorney General, Steve Marshall, said that CBD derived from hemp plants that contains no more than 0.3% THC is legal to produce, sell, and possess in Alabama.
Alabama, on the whole, remains hostile to all other forms of cannabis, as even medical marijuana is only legal in a very certain set of circumstances. CBD derived from marijuana is still completely illegal.
The previous CBD laws, called “Carly’s Law” and “Leni’s Law” still apply to marijuana-derived CBD, which allows suffers of severe epilepsy can obtain CBD with less than 3% THC.
Will I Get Arrested for Using CBD in Alabama?
No – as long as it is hemp CBD. If you possess marijuana CBD and haven’t been prescribed it by a doctor for epilepsy, you’ll likely be arrested for marijuana possession. The state is taking steps to reduce marijuana possession penalties, but it is not yet decriminalized.
Is CBD Legal in Food in Alabama?
Yes, but Alabama health officials do “warn” against it. Recently the FDA reiterated that CBD for human consumption is not yet regulated, and is in many cases illegal, though individual states are handling this warning differently. States like New York are banning CBD-infused foods and beverages from being sold, while others are simply “advising” consumers to be aware of the risks. This is the stance Alabama state officials are taking; State Health Officer Dr. Scott Harris said that CBD products are untested, unregulated having not yet been approved by the FDA.
Are all CBD Products Legal in Alabama?
Yes – you can buy hemp-derived CBD products in any form in Alabama, whether that’s as an oil, balm, edible, or something else.
