Legality of CBD Food Products
Our industrial hemp-derived cannabidiol (CBD) products are legal to buy, possess consume and sell in the United States as well as many other countries. The FDA considers Hemp and Hemp-derived cannabinoids (including CBD) to be food-based products, and non-psychoactive hemp is NOT included in Schedule I of the Controlled Substance Act.
Our hemp products are considered food or dietary supplements, and our CBD is a natural constituent of the hemp plant/hemp seed and stalk oil and is not synthetic or artificial; therefore, our naturally-derived, industrial hemp-based CBD is exempt from Schedule I, just as any other constituent of non-psychoactive industrial hemp.
Legality of Domestic Industrial Hemp
Our hemp products are produced under the lawful authority of the Federal Farm Bill Act of 2014, which defines industrial hemp as Cannabis sativa L. with a delta-9 Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) concentration of not more than .3 percent. All of our products are lab-tested and certified to be at or below this .3% legal threshold.
The United States Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit in Hemp Industries Association, v. Drug Enforcement Administration, 357 F.3d 1012 (9th Cir. 2004), recognized that non-psychoactive hemp [that] is derived from the ‘mature stalks’ or is ‘oil and cake made from the seeds’ of the Cannabis plant, fits within the plainly stated exemption to the CSA definition of ‘marijuana.’ Id. at 1017. As such, the court determined that the government (i.e. DEA) has no authority under current law to completely ban “THC that is found within the parts of Cannabis plants that are excluded from the CSA’s definition of ‘marijuana’ or that is not synthetic.” Id. at 1018. Industrial hemp is legal to import under the Controlled substances Act (CSA). Since 1937, the federal statute controlling marijuana has excluded the stalk, fiber, oil and sterilized seed of the plant Cannabis Sativa L., commonly known as hemp, from the definition of marijuana. 21 U.S.C. 802 (16), and again in reference to 2-6-04 Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals ruling.
The sale, production and distribution of CBD oils/products derived from industrial hemp is not in violation of the Controlled Substances Act (CSA). In Hemp Indus. Ass’n. v. DEA, 357 F.3d 1012 (9th Cir. 2004), the Ninth Circuit ruled that naturally occurring cannabanoids in industrial hemp foods, including oil, were never scheduled under the CSA; therefore, the DEA has no jurisdiction. This means that CBD, and even THC, when in industrial hemp oil, are legal.
Industrial hemp products are not considered “marijuana” under the CSA. A company may acquire, possess, and produce products that are not defined as “marijuana.” The CSA definition of “marijuana” expressly and intentionally excludes “the mature stalks of such plant, fiber produced from such stalks, oil or cake made from the seeds of such plant, any other compound, manufacture, salt, derivative, mixture, or preparation of such mature stalks (except the resin extracted therefrom), fiber, oil, or cake, or the sterilized seed of such plant which is incapable of germination.” See 21 U.S.C. § 802(16). Thus, industrial hemp stalks, fibers, oils, or cakes derived from a hemp plant i are not legally defined as marijuana, and are, therefore lawful to possess. The DEA has no authority to regulate drugs that are not scheduled/defined. Id.; Hemp Indus. Ass’n. v. DEA, 357 F.3d 1012, 1014 (9th Cir. 2004).
Even industrial hemp containing THC is lawful under the CSA because natural THC that is not derived from “marijuana” is lawful under the CSA. The DEA can regulate products containing natural THC if it is contained within “marijuana,” and can regulate synthetic THC of any kind. But it cannot regulate naturally-occurring THC not contained within or derived from “marijuana,” i.e., non-psychoactive hemp products, because non-psychoactive hemp from the stalks and fibers of such a plant are not included in Schedule I. The DEA has no authority to regulate drugs that are not scheduled/defined. And the definition of THC under the CSA includes only synthetic THC. 21 C.F.R. § 1308.11(d)(27); Hemp Indus. Ass’n. v. DEA, 357 F.3d 1012, 1014 (9th Cir. 2004)(quoting Hemp Indus. Ass’n v. DEA, 333 F.3d 1082, 1089 (9th Cir. 2003).
