In 2018, the U.S. Congress passed the Agriculture Improvement Act, commonly known as the Farm Bill, which legalized the production and sale of hemp at the federal level. The law defined hemp as cannabis plants with less than 0.3% THC, the psychoactive compound found in cannabis.
While the Farm Bill legalized hemp at the federal level, it also gave individual states the authority to regulate the production, sale, and possession of hemp within their borders. As a result, hemp laws can vary from state to state. According to federal law, it is legal for to receive hemp and CBD products in the mail in all 50 states, as long as they contain less than 0.3% THC
Generally, most states have passed laws that align with the federal definition of hemp and have established regulatory frameworks for the cultivation, processing, and sale of hemp and hemp-derived products. However, some states have more restrictive laws or have not yet established regulatory frameworks for hemp.
It’s important to note that the legal landscape for hemp is constantly evolving, and it’s important to stay up-to-date on the latest laws and regulations in your state if you are involved in the production, sale, or possession of hemp or hemp-derived products.
