Is CBD Isolate Legal?

YES for most States (should be legal in all 50 soon). Cannabidiol (CBD) is not listed separately in the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR); it is controlled in Schedule I by definition as a “derivative” or “component” of marijuana (21 USC 802). This is also true of other individual cannabinoids. Only THC is listed separately in Schedule I. According to a position statement from the DEA Office of Public Affairs, CBD from any source is a Schedule I substance (DEA, Office of Public Affairs, December 15, 2015, provided upon request to A. Mead). Many in the cannabis industry claim that as long as the CBD product contains less than 0.3% THC, it is classified as hemp under federal law and is therefore legal to possess and distribute.
