I started buying hemp & CBD products online in the earlier years.
There was a law that legalized industrial hemp as long as it had less than 0.3% of THC in it.
Although there was some sketchiness with the language of the law, it basically jump started a large national CBD industry overnight. My local head shop & tobacco store started selling these CBD concentrate waxes that could be vaporized in a cannabis oil vaporizer. I was purchasing them then, but they were so famous that it was strenuous to get on the priority list before the stock would be gone for another week or two. Many of us were also concerned to varying degrees about the legality surrounding it all. In reality, the early years Farm Bill was ambiguous & some questioned if there were as many legal protections for CBD companies & users as every one of us initially thought. Thankfully that ambiguity & debate was put to rest with the early year Farm Bill. It took CBD & unlinked it from the list on the Controlled Substances Act & got rid of its DEA classification as well. As long as the hemp & CBD products are sourced from plants with less than 0.3% THC inside, they’re considered a separate category from traditional marijuana with more than 0.3% THC inside. Now you don’t even have to worry about traveling on planes with CBD products, as they are protected by federal law. I think some people who take advantage of this & fly with their high THC products bought at cannabis dispensaries, but that’s a gamble for sure. Your TSA agent that day might not care, but won’t think until the moment of truth.
