The legalization of cannabis oil had long been a debate among lawmakers all over the world. Some have already acknowledged the medical properties of cannabis (including hemp and marijuana) in the form of CBD oil and legalized it for purchase. There are still individual states that make it illegal to purchase medical marijuana. Let’s take a look at the list of states that have already legalized medical marijuana and CBD.
It is considered illegal to cultivate and grow cannabis in America. However, it is legal to manufacture products that include cannabis as one of its main ingredients. Hence, manufacturers are required to import the hemp oil they need in formulating the products they are going to sell in the market from any of their international sources. Most of the manufacturers rely on farmers from Northern Europe. The hemp oil is guaranteed proven and tested, making sure that it submits to the requirement of the formulation before it’s used.
Some states in the United States of America, however, have legalized the use of CBD.
So, where is CBD oil legal?

The generation of industrial hemp is under the Prop. 64 of the Golden State. California is one of the leading states that pilots the cannabis reform and is also one of the great leaders to the developing ecosystem of medical cannabis. However, business should not utilize the cannabis to pose threat or danger to the individuals that can result in cancer and other complications. It’s one of their bases for the Triple Lab Tested Standard. Before the chemical is ingested to the body, the Golden State ensures the safety of the individual considering the fact that there’s a huge literature gap in the study of medical cannabis.
There are numerous studies that prove CBD oil can help in curing death-causing diseases. For states that denied the legalization of medical marijuana, some patients flee to states that declare the legalization of medical cannabis in order to treat the illness. Despite the many medical benefits of CBD oil, we cannot deny the fact that the study is still on-going and there is still so much to explore in marijuana and its associated medical benefits.
