LEGAL LANDSCAPE

WE DO NOT GIVE LEGAL ADVICE

As the consumer, you bear the responsibility of making your own decision. We encourage you to educate yourself on the legality of CBD before deciding to purchase Earth Medicine’s, or others, products.

We know the legality of cannabidiol (CBD) products can be confusing. There are laws at the local and national level that are not always consistent or clear in their application. We have worked hard to build our understanding of the legal landscape and believe that we are fully compliant with all applicable laws, rules and regulations. If we err, it is due to the incongruity and ambiguity of the current legal landscape.

The information presented here is to show that Earth Medicine has done its due diligence in creating a product that is compliant with local and Federal Law. As you do your own research, please keep in mind that Earth Medicine’s products contain 0% THC and are made from hemp producers that have licences from the states in which they operate.

STATE AND LOCAL LAW

It is important to educate yourself about your state and local laws because legislation continually evolves as States’ local governments deal with various aspects of the industry. State and local laws may have tighter restrictions than set forth in the 2018 Farm Bill.

CURRENT FEDERAL LAW

Recent legislation clarifies the legality of hemp based on the levels of Tetrahydro-cannabidiol, (THC) the euphoria causing compound.

Current Federal Laws to be aware of:

  • Amends and builds upon the 2014 Farm Bill
  • The 2018 Farm Bill more specifically defines HEMP:
    The term ‘hemp’ means the plant Cannabis sativa L. and any part of that plant, including the seeds thereof and all derivatives, extracts, cannabinoids, isomers, acids, salts, and salts of isomers, whether growing or not, with a delta-9 tetrahydrocannabinol concentration of not more than 0.3 percent on a dry weight basis.
  • De-schedules industrial hemp from the Controlled Substances Act (CSA) when produced in compliance with a state hemp program.
  • Allows the transfer of hemp-derived products across state lines for commercial or other purposes.
  • Allows hemp cultivation broadly, not simply pilot programs. Farmers now have access to Financing, water rights, and insurance.
  • As an agricultural product, Hemp will now be under the view of the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA).
  • The Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) retains jurisdiction over products made from marijuana, including CBD from marijuana, because it remains a Schedule I substance.
  • FDA’s position is that CBD can not be used as a dietary supplement as it is already an active ingredient in approved FDA drug Epidiolex.
  • Prime concern is illegal claims associated with marketing products containing CBD, per FDA Commissioner, Dr. Scott Gotlieb
