QUESTIONS ABOUT THE LEGALITY OF CBD FLOWER?


Is CBD Flower legal?

The short answer is yes.

The hemp you see on our site and in stores is 100% federally legal, as protected under certain provisions contained within the 2013 and 2018 Farm Bills passed by the United States Congress.

If CBD is legal, why doesn't Paz Packs sell to certain states?

Although hemp is federally legal, it is still regulated state-to-state. It is the opposite of marijuana in this respect: marijuana is federally illegal, but legal under the statutes of certain states.

Make no mistake: hemp and hemp-derived products are legal in all 50 states, but there are statutes in certain states that restrict the methods of selling, purchasing, or consuming hemp. Some states have passed statutes that are overly restrictive on these methods, which—in an effort to be as legally compliant as possible—led us to prohibiting sales to consumers in such states.

What does the Farm Bill of 2013 mean for hemp?

The Farm Bill of 2013 was signed by President Obama on February 7, 2014, and its main purpose is to define industrial hemp and “to allow pilot programs and research to begin on industrial hemp and determine whether hemp farming would be beneficial for American farmers and businesses.”

Section 7606 (subtitled The Legitimacy of Industrial Hemp Research) this bill defines industrial hemp as “the plant Cannabis sativa L. and any part of such plant, whether growing or not, with a delta-9 tetrahydrocannabinol concentration of not more than 0.3 percent on a dry weight basis.”
