As of the Farm Bill of 2018, hemp-derived CBD is legal to farm, sell, and buy in all 50 states. So, you may be wondering where you can buy CBD in Arizona. Here’s everything you need to know.
What Is CBD?
CBD is the active compound found in all strains of the cannabis plant, including hemp-derived CBD and marijuana-derived CBD. It’s the compound responsible for the medicinal and holistic benefits of both products.
What makes hemp unique is that it is naturally low in the psychoactive compound THC, which is what makes you high. So, while both marijuana and hemp can be referred to as “CBD”, hemp contains .3% or less THC so it won’t get you high.
Is CBD Legal In Arizona?
Arizona CBD laws allow you to purchase both hemp and recreational marijuana. Recreational marijuana was legalized in the state in 2020 and hemp was legalized nationwide in 2018.
However, it is important to keep in mind that both products are not legal at the federal level. So, while state law takes precedence, employers, schools, and athletic and extracurricular organizations may prohibit the use of either or both marijuana and CBD oil.
How Old Do You Have To Be To Buy CBD In Arizona?
In Arizona, you must be at least 21 years of age to purchase marijuana. So, expect to be carded at dispensaries and pot shops. However, you can purchase hemp at any age. Some states require you to be 18 years old.
Keep in mind, that most pot shops only sell products that will get you high. They may sell “low THC” topicals and oral products, but most will still impair your cognitive ability. Ask to ensure you know what you are purchasing.
If you are searching for a hemp-derived CBD oil or topical with .3% THC or less, most brands sell their products online only.
Can You Order CBD Online In Arizona?
Marijuana, no. CBD, yes! However, there are a few things to be mindful of:
- Marijuana cannot be sold online.
- CBD cannot be sold on sites such as Amazon or eBay.
- If you find “CBD” products on Amazon or eBay, they are made from hemp seed oil. This is a cooking oil that does provide the holistic benefits you are searching for.
- The hemp industry is highly unregulated so you must find a reputable and transparent online retailer such as Holmes Organics.

Should I Use Hemp Or Marijuana?
If both are legal in your state, the choice is up to you. Many of our customers use a combination of both. Since hemp products don’t get you high, they are easier to take daily. If not prohibited by your employer or extracurricular organization, you can take it at any time without worry of cognitive function. However, many of our clients have only used hemp and have never (or rarely) used marijuana. Either way, all are welcome at Holmes Organics!
