There has been a lot of grey area regarding hemp-derived CBD, leaving many asking the question “is CBD legal in Texas”. With state laws updated in 2019, there is no more confusion.
What Is CBD?
Let’s first clarify that hemp-derived CBD and marijuana-derived CBD are not the same product. Yes, they are both a species of one of over 700 strains of the cannabis plant, but their active compounds are unique. Just like a standard red rose has different active compounds than a miniature pink rose with ruffled petals.
Both marijuana and hemp contain the active compound CBD, which is responsible for the holistic benefits of both products. However, hemp contains .3% of THC or less which is the active compound that gets you high. This is not enough THC to get you high.
Is CBD Legal In Texas?
Yes, hemp-derived CBD with .3% THC is legal in Texas, and nationwide since the Farm Bill of 2018. However, there was so much grey area in Texas state law that the state had numerous hemp arrests. In June of 2019, Governor Abbott signed a law that legalized hemp and aligned with the Farm Bill of 2018.
How Do I Buy CBD In Texas?
There are a variety of ways to purchase CBD. For oil tinctures, topicals, gummies, or softgels most head online to dedicated CBD brands such as Holmes Organics. However, you can find oral and topical products in many health foods stores, wellness stores, restaurants, spas, and alternative healthcare practitioners. You will also find CBD in an increasing number of products, such as mixed into candies, beverages, or anti-aging facial moisturizers.
Medical marijuana is also legal in Texas and can be purchased at dispensaries. However, the state has the most restrictive medical marijuana laws in the country, so many use hemp instead.
Can You order CBD Online In Dallas or Houston?
Yes, you can! And not just from Dallas and Houston, but from anywhere in the state and anywhere in the country.
It is important to note, that it is currently against both Amazon and eBay’s policies to sell hemp-derived CBD. However, they do sell the cooking oil hemp seed oil. While it can be used topically and orally, hemp seed oil does not provide the holistic benefits of hemp oil pressed from hemp flowers.
