As first reported by KSN out of Topeka, Kansas one shop owner is fighting to keep selling Cannabidiol (CBD) to local residents after being told by the Kansas Attorney General that CBD oil is illegal.
Legislators in Kansas are looking to pass a bill to declare CBD as illegal, though the Farm Bill of 2014, which allows hemp to be grown and cultivated since it is a separate plant from marijuana, makes it completely legal in all 50 states as long as it contains less than .3% of THC (the cannabinoid responsible for the “high” you feel). Hemp plants contain little to no THC but plenty of CBD which people of all ages use to treat a variety of conditions and aliments.
People in the Sunflower State have little to fear, since they can buy CBD online from a variety of sellers in a variety of strengths, flavors, and forms without persecution from the DEA or other government officials.
