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. Our importer imports its raw industrial hemp oil under approved tariff codes to its FDA registered and GMP certified facility in the United States. Industrial hemp products that have been imported through the proper means are exempt from marijuana and THC laws in Schedule I of the DEA. Please check your country’s legal status of cannabidiol (CBD) before ordering with us. It is your responsibility to know your country’s laws before ordering with us, we are not liable for knowing the status of cannabidiol (CBD) in every country. Due to the fact that the FDA considers hemp and hemp-derived cannabinoids (including CBD) to be food-based products there is no legal restrictions on their importation or consumption in the United States and in most of the industrialized world. Non-psychoactive hemp is not included in Schedule I of the Controlled Substance Act.
Hemp is legal to import, sell, and consume in the United States. 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; therefor, our naturally-derived, industrial hemp-bases CBD is exempt from Schedule I just as any constituent of non-psychoactive industrial hemp. The United States Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit in Hemp Industries Assn., v. Drug Enforcement Admin., 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 Substance 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.
