Is CBD legal in South Dakota?
CBD has been found to have many health benefits but since regulations are different from state to state there is still a lot of controversy about it. Many US consumers wonder if they are able to purchase CBD oil in states with stringent cannabis laws such as South Dakota. In this article, we will make this clear.
South Dakota is probably the most hostile U.S. state towards marijuana. Both recreational and medical marijuana are still illegal. There has been a few bills passed, but none of them got signed into law.
In general, there are two types of CBD, derived from two sources: marijuana and hemp. These two types of the plant come with different amounts of THC, the psychoactive compound of cannabis. CBD derived from marijuana is THC rich and causes the “high” effect, while CBD Hemp Oil has only a little trace of THC, generally below 0.3%.
Technically CBD is illegal in the state, but the Agriculture Improvement Act of 2018 removed hemp from the Controlled Substances Act. The Farm Bill says that all products derived from hemp are legal to use, buy and possess.
Anything derived from marijuna, including CBD Cannabis Oil, is illegal even for patients in South Dakota.
How to get CBD in South Dakota
Even though CBD Hemp Oil is legal under federal law, the state’s authorities claim that all marijuana and hemp extracts, including CBD, is still a Schedule 1 controlled substance. Any residents who possess CBD products will be treated as if they are caught possessing an illegal controlled substance. However, under the Farm Bill, all products derived from industrial hemp are legal to be used, sold and cultivated. There are several online retailers that operate under the Farm Bill and offer shipment to South Dakota. It is also technically possible to buy products locally.
