Yes, use of CBD hemp oil is legal in North Carolina on a state and a federal basis.

 Hemp is now permanently legal in North Carolina and industry officials expect it will help expand industrial hemp across the state.

On Thursday, North Carolina Gov.Roy Cooper signed SB455 which removed hemp from the state’s controlled substances act. The bill puts North Carolina in step with federal law in regards to hemp, which was federally legalized in 2018.

 CBD or cannabidiol comes from the hemp plant. Hemp and marijuana are both cannabis but have their differences. Marijuana is still illegal federally and in North Carolina; it has more THC,(tetrahydrocannabinol), a psychoactive substance. Hemp, on the other hand, has more CBD. THC and CBD are cannabinoids but CBD does not have the psychoactive properties that THC does. Under North Carolina state law, hemp is defined as containing no more than 0.3% THC.

Age Requirements for CBD in North Carolina

Age requirements in North Carolina are relatively straight-forward, despite the confusing nature of the laws which created them. For the industrial hemp pilot law under which most CBD products are presently sold, consumers generally need to be eighteen years or older in order to purchase the products. This includes age requirements in most convenience stores and gas stations.

For some head and smoke shops, the nature of the other items sold in the retail store means that sometimes patrons are asked to be at least twenty-one to even enter the store, much less make a purchase of CBD products.

You must be 18 years of age or older  to purchase these products. They contain industrial hemp (Hemp) that was grown pursuant to state and federal law by licensed farmers in accordance with the Industrial Hemp provisions of the Agricultural Act of 2014 (known as the “Farm Act”) and it state law counterparts. It was lab tested and certified to contain a delta-9 THC concentration of not more than 0.3% on a dry weight basis. For these reasons it is not subject to regulation or control under the federal Controlled Substances Act.
