Alabama AG says some CBD from hemp now legal

Alabama Attorney General Steve Marshall has updated a public notice on the legal status of cannabidiol because of a provision in the farm bill that received final passage today in Congress.

The farm bill legalizes industrial hemp beyond pilot programs that Congress authorized in 2014.

Marshall’s office said that means cannabidiol derived from hemp and containing no more than than 0.3 percent THC is legal to produce, sell and possess in Alabama.

Cannabidiol, also called CBD, can also be derived from marijuana. Hemp and marijuana are related but hemp contains far less THC, the intoxicating substance in marijuana.
