Tetrahydrocannabinol, known as THC, is the most notorious cannabinoid found in the cannabis plant. THC is responsible for the lethargic, sleepy and “high” feeling experienced by cannabis users. While each state has their own rules about marijuana, and it is not yet legal in all 50 states, CBD is a viable alternative to those residing in jurisdictions that have not yet decriminalized medicinal marijuana.

The 2018 Farm Bill was signed into law the by President on December 20, 2018. The 2018 Farm Bill removed hemp (defined as the Cannabis Sativa L., and any part of the plant, including the seeds thereof, and all derivatives, extracts, cannabinoids, isomers, acids, salts, and salts of isomers, whether growing or not, with a delta-9 THC concentration of not more than 0.3% on a dry weight basis) from Schedule I of the federal Controlled Substances Act (“CSA”). In addition to removing hemp from the CSA, the 2018 Farm Bill delegates broad authority to the states to regulate and limit the production and sale of hemp and hemp products within their borders. The 2018 Farm Bill also preserved the authority of the FDA to regulate products containing cannabis or cannabis-derived compounds under the federal Food, Drug and Cosmetic Act, including CBD.
