Folks Are Asking: Is CBD Oil Legal in Oklahoma?
As is the case with other U.S. states, much of the confusion surrounding CBD oil in Oklahoma is traceable to the 2018 Farm Bill. When this bill was passed way back in December 2018, it essentially permitted the growth of industrial hemp, with stipulations that plants must not contain levels of THC higher than 0.3% by dry weight.
However, the assumption that the Farm Bill makes CBD allowed to grow in all 50 U.S. states is not exactly accurate. Each state still has the option to “choose” whether or not they want to adopt the stipulations put forth in the Farm Bill. If they opt-in, so to speak, the state agriculture committee must put together a regulatory plan and submit to the USDA for approval before farmers can start cultivating industrial hemp.
For these reasons, consumers must pay close attention when it comes to finding quality CBD in Oklahoma. Though there are plenty of stores across the state that sell various CBD products, few (if any) of these are made from Oklahoma-grown hemp – regardless of what the CBD store (or the product label) might say. OK residents must do plenty of research if they want to find safe, reliable CBD products that are worth their money.
