It is a question that I am sure some people are asking. “Can I order CBD Oil online, and have it mailed to my house?”
The answer is yes and no. Cannabis is federally illegal under the Controlled Substances Act. This means that transporting any form of cannabis across state lines is considered a felony trafficking offense. Sending cannabis through the mail is no exception and can result in a prison sentence of up to five years for the first offense.
“Then, why do I see advertisements for companies saying they can mail me CBD oil after I purchase it?”
The reason is simple. These companies are, in fact, selling CBD oil that is made from Industrial Hemp. Industrial hemp IS legal to import, ship across state lines, and process into various products including the fabled CBD oils, as long as they contain less than 0.3% delta-9 tetrahydrocannabinol.
The Cannabis Sativa L. plant has several different varieties. The non-psychoactive variety is what we commonly refer to as industrial hemp and contains little-to-no THC content, and small amounts of CBD.
According to Leafly.com,
“The question of whether hemp-derived CBD oil is legal under federal law remained unclear until last December, when the Drug Enforcement Administration published a new rule, “Establishment of New Drug Code for Marihuana Extract.” This rule removed all doubt about the legality of cannabidiol, but the fight wasn’t over.
Recently, the Hemp Industries Association joined forces with RMH Holdings and Centuria Natural Food to challenge the law, asking the federal court to review the final rule on the grounds that it is arbitrary and unconstitutional. The opening brief, filed on April 3, 2017, accuses the DEA of failing to act in accordance with standard protocol for scheduling the newly prohibited substance under the Controlled Substances Act.
The DEA responded in June seeking to dismiss the lawsuit, but the court has yet to issue a ruling.” (Read More)
