Subject: DEA Reiterates: Hemp CBD is Illegal
The DEA has reiterated that Hemp CBD is illegal. It does not matter what the sellers of CBD oil tell you, it is illegal. The DEA believes it is illegal in all fifty states. The authority that the DEA has over drugs comes from the Controlled Substances Act. This issue is important to many people.
- The Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) has issued a new clarification about the coding of marijuana extracts that rebuts the claims by sellers of “hemp-derived CBD oil” that their product is “legal in all 50 states.”
- According to the scientific literature, cannabinoids are not found in the parts of the cannabis plant that are excluded from the CSA definition of marijuana,
- “when Congress excluded from the definition of marijuana ‘mature stalks of such plant, fiber . . . , [and] oil or cake made from the seeds,’ it also made an exception to the exception,
"The term ”marihuana” means all parts of the plant Cannabis sativa L., whether growing or not."
