Michigan officials deal with CBD oil regulation

Recommended Posts

Cannabidiol, or CBD oil, is no longer considered to be marijuana in Michigan under a new legal framework created by the 2018 U.S. Farm Bill and a state law that takes effect this March.

Instead of categorizing “all things green and smelly” by default as marijuana, the federal government has defined that the cannabis sativa L. plant that has less than 0.3 percent THC by dry weight as hemp, said Michael Komorn, a lawyer and president of the Michigan Medical Marijuana Association.

Yet state officials have not yet determined how it will be regulated.

CBD oil is typically derived from hemp — though it can be derived from marijuana — and contains less than 0.3 percent THC, the active component in cannabis that makes someone high. CBD oil is rising in popularity for treatment of pain, anxiety and depression.

“CBD and other cannabinoids extracted from the plant are not criminalized anymore but would be subject to FDA regulations,” Komorn said.
