Folks Are Asking: Is CBD Oil Legal in Maine?
Like most U.S. states these days, CBD oil in Maine has gained a tremendous amount of popularity over the years. Folks across the state are interested in the purported benefits of hemp-derived products, and indeed their options are continuously growing.
As you may or may not know, the U.S. government approved an updated version of the domestic Farm Bill back in December 2018. This gives individual states the opportunity to put together a program for USDA approval that allows for the commercial cultivation of hemp. Hemp, of course, contains adequate amounts of phytocannabinoids and is often used to make CBD products.
Not all states have chosen to adopt the stipulations put forth in the updated U.S. Farm Bill, however. Later in the article we will specifically discuss the status of industrial hemp in Maine. First, it’s important to understand what actually goes into manufacturing a quality, well-made hemp CBD product. Because believe us – not all of the CBD oils in Maine that you’ll find out there for sale are made with the same quality of ingredients and phytocompounds.
One of the most important things to be wary of is whether or not a CBD product comes with a lab report. Lab reports identify not only the CBD content of a product, but also the presence (and absence) of things like hemp-based cannabinoids, heavy metals, microbes, and so on.
Unfortunately, regulatory aspects regarding CBD in Maine are still producing quite a lot of confusion among state residents. Let’s take a closer look at what’s going on out there in the Pine Tree State.
