Is CBD Oil Legal in Wisconsin?
No, technically, but read on – currently, Cannabidiol (CBD) is illegal in Wisconsin except for limited use for medicinal purposes and can be possessed if you have been given the okay by a doctor. It is, however, available in stores throughout the state. Why?
Because under federal law, CBD oil is legal to possess and distribute throughout the US, and so the Wisconsin Attorney General advised Wisconsin law enforcement not to enforce the law.
So, is it illegal? Yes, but it is highly unlikely you will be prosecuted for possessing it. In a November 2018 vote, Wisconsin residents mostly voted in support of the legalization of marijuana, so CBD and marijuana will likely be legalized within the state in the foreseeable future.
It is important to note that – at least for now – CBD products that are legal in Wisconsin must be derived from hemp plants, not from marijuana plants – though of course enforcing this would be incredibly difficult.
Will I Get Arrested for Using CBD in Wisconsin?
It’s not impossible, but it is highly unlikely. The Wisconsin Attorney General has advised Wisconsin law enforcement to ignore the written law, so even if an officer arrested you a judge would likely dismiss the charges.
Is it Only Legal to Use CBD Oil in WI or Can I Use Other Products?
It is legal in any form you like; be that oil, as a tincture, edibles, balms, lotions, capsules, vapes, and more. CBD oil, as referred to above, is the language used because when CBD is refined, it first takes the form of oil before being added to other products.
Is CBD Legal in Food in Wisconsin?
Yes, but whether or not CBD food and drink is legal in Wisconsin is a hazy subject – though you are likely to find CBD food and drink products on shelves throughout the state. The problem with CBD in food is that the FDA has yet to define guidelines for its use in food and drink, but they have clarified that it is okay to do so provided marketers do not make claims about CBD’s ability to treat disease on the packaging.
