Many residents were disappointed when the Florida Supreme Court shot down the Adult Use of Marijuana initiative in April of 2021. However, small amounts of marijuana have been decriminalized in Miami-Dade County only and CBD is legal in Miami, and statewide.
What Is CBD?
Hemp-derived CBD empowers you to enjoy the benefits of medical marijuana without the high. Also referred to as industrial hemp, hemp is naturally low in the intoxicating compound THC. Marijuana is naturally high in the intoxicating compound THC.
While both products are derived from the cannabis plant, hemp is from a strain that will not get you high. In case you’re wondering, there are over 700 strains of the cannabis plant. Hemp with .3% THC or less is what has been legalized nationwide. Many CBD brands, such as Holmes Organics, process their products to contain 0.0% THC.
But what is CBD? Short for cannabidiol, CBD is the active compound responsible for the medicinal benefits of marijuana. There is no need for THC or the high to enjoy these benefits, which is where much of the confusion arises.
Can I Buy CBD In Miami?
Yes, you can buy CBD in Miami or anywhere in the State of Florida. As of the Farm Bill of 2018, hemp-derived CBD with .3% THC or less is legal. You can find options in local CBD stores, and you can shop from online retailers. Shopping online provides you with access to a wider range of products and allows you to research the brand you are shopping from. This verifies quality and provides access to products that are targeted to your individual needs.
While marijuana is not legal in Florida, Miami-Dade County has decriminalized the possession of up to 20 grams of marijuana. The fine is capped at $100 and community service hours are often appointed. However, charges may be criminalized if the person is driving under the influence or if they committed any other type of crime while high or in possession of marijuana. Other counties have not decriminalized marijuana.
Medical marijuana has been legal since the Compassionate Medical Cannabis Act in 2014, which offered limited medicinal use. Use has since been expanded for broader medicinal use.
Keep in mind that both medical marijuana and CBD are still illegal at the Federal level, so your employer, school, or extracurricular program may prohibit use.
