The DEA has contested this by saying all CBD oil is illegal and marijuana. After coming under fire, they back stepped, and said that any cannabinoid derived from the flowers of the cannabis plant is marijuana and illegal under federal law. The mature stalks of cannabis plants are not covered under marijuana’s definition in The Control Substances Act. As long your CBD oil is derived from the stalks, your oil is legal.

It can be confusing for distributors – but since the potential for industry growth shows no sign of slowing, it’s worth looking more into the matter. You may be wondering – will there really be that much growth? Experts say yes! Check out these stats from The National Institute of Drug Abuse’ National Survey on Drug Use and Health: Trends in Prevalence of Marijuana – the results from the survey show industry growth will indeed continue, so now is the time to start wading through all that confusing shipping-chatter out there.
