Is CBD Oil Legal in KY?

Redently I've been asked about CBD Oil sales and purchase in Kentucky.  Essentially, CBD oil is made from hemp or marijuana. 

CBD products from hemp and marijuana have in common -- they're both natural alternatives to synthetic medication. People may use either for sleep aid, pain relief or anxiety relief. Both hemp and marijuana are cannabis. When people think cannabis, they think marijuana, they think people smoke it and get high. That's true with respect to marijuana.  Hemp, on the other hand, is a different plant in the cannabis family. Unlike marijuana, it contains a majority of CBD and significantly less THC, the psychoactive ingredient that makes people feel high.

To be legal in the state of Kentucky, [CBD products] have to have 0.3% THC or less. CBD products are being manufactured in Louisville, Kentukcy. It is legal to manufacture, produce, sell and possess CBD oils in Kentucky, so long as they are made from the hemp plant and if produced with .3% THC or less.  

Kentucky statutes relating to industrial hemp production is located in provisions of farming statutes beginning at KRS 260.850 and following and KRS 260.858 requires licensure for cultivation and processing.

If you have questions, consult your attorney. If you have been charged with possession or distribution, you need to hire an experienced criminal defense attorney familiar with the law.  For consultation in Kentucky, contact Michael Bouldin at 859-581-6453 or email [email protected].
