The Essential Legal Lowdown Of Selling CBD Oil
Reading Time: 2 minutes
In 2019, it’s become much easier to buy CBD oil and CBD oil-infused products. But just how legal is it, and what defines legal CBD oil? We’re here to give you the lowdown on all you need to know about possessing and selling CBD oil legally in the U.S.
So, Is CBD Oil Legal?
The short answer: yes!
CBD oil has had a nebulous legal past, but thanks to the 2018 Farm Bill, it’s now legal in all 50 states. Unfortunately, it gets a little bit more complicated than that the closer you look. The Farm Bill allows for the production and sale of hemp and hemp extracts. So, CBD oil is legal to possess, as long as it’s derived from hemp plants and not a marijuana plant.
The second important stipulation is that the CBD oil must have a THC content of under 0.3%. Any more than this, and it’s illegal. All scalar oil from us at Miracle Balance is independently lab tested and contains 0.00% THC.
While legal, there are restrictions as to how you can market CBD oil. This will depend on what the product is, whether it’s oil for personal use, CBD oil for food, or other CBD-infused products, such as cosmetics. Check with the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act (FD&C Act) to ensure you’re selling and marketing in the correct way.
Differences Among State Regulations
While CBD oil is now federally legal, states still need to update their own laws to reflect this. This is where you might hear some conflicting stories about what’s legal and what’s not, so it’s always important to check current regulations in your state, and even within your city.
With CBD oil federally approved, its use is now governed by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). While the FDA is still forming its regulations for CBD oil, there can seem to be a ‘gray area’ in which it is sold. Some states like Colorado have allowed the addition of CBD oil in food, but others have put restrictions on it.
Shipping CBD Oil Across The Country
Here’s more of the good news: it’s completely legal to ship CBD oil across all 50 states. This is a welcome leap forward for those in the hemp and energy health industries, as differing state regulations about shipping used to cause a few issues. Now, provided you stick with the following provisos, you can ship with USPS, UPS, FedEx, DHL, and other private couriers across the country.
- Make sure that the CBD oil complies with all federal regulations. This means that the THC content should be under 0.3%, and it should be extracted from hemp, not cannabis.
- USPS in particular requests that you include a couple of documents in the package that confirm that you’re authorized to market CBD products. This isn’t a complex process, become a wholesale partner with us at Miracle Balance and we can guide you through it.
- Even though all 50 states allow for the shipping of CBD oil, you should still take more caution if you want to ship internationally. Not every country has the same laws that the U.S. does, and they’re always subject to change. Take the time to make sure you’re sending it to a country that shares the same allowances as here in the U.S.
