In December 2018 when the federal Farm Bill was passed, hemp was taken off the controlled substances list. Essentially legalizing the crop. However, growing hemp in New Jersey is still illegal. Steve Oroho sponsored a bill to create a program allowing the cultivation, processing and distribution of hemp in the state.
If your CBD comes from a marijuana plant, it's illegal. If your CBD contains too much THC (more than 0.3 percent), it's illegal. The extraction process for CBD and THC is essentially the same. As a consequence, CBD can be contaminated with THC, chemical solvents or pesticides if the extraction is done improperly.
DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — Gov. Kim Reynolds has signed a bill into law that allows Iowa farmers to legally grow industrial hemp. The Iowa Hemp Act passed the Legislature with overwhelming support last month. The bill Reynolds signed Monday allows licensed growers to cultivate the crop on up to 40 acres.
CBD oils, which are processed from the hemp plant, are legal to possess under the new federal law as long as they, too, contain no more than 0.3 percent THC. Though now legal under federal law, CBD is still subject to regulation when it is sold with a claim of therapeutic benefit.
