Farm Bill paves way for CBD in Alabama

MONTGOMERY, Ala (WIAT) — Alabama Attorney General Steve Marshall updated his advisory on the legal stance on cannabidol or CBD, this is because of a provision in the Farm Bill passed by congress this week.

Attorney General Steve Marshall says, he is hoping to provide clarity on Alabama’s law.

“The senate passed the Farm Bill which included a prevision that allowed for CDB coming from industrial hemp, that was below a certain percentage to be lawful,” Steve Marshall said.

In a statement  from the AG’s office, it states, “as a result of this Congressional action, CBD derived from industrial hemp, with a THC concentration of not more than .3%, can be legally produced, sold, and possessed in the State of Alabama.”

“CBD can come from marijuana, that was not included in the bill or it can come from industrial hemp, this is specifically related to industrial hemp,” Marshall said. 

All of this will becomes final, once President Trump signs the Farm Bill into law.
