CBD Legal States

CBD stands for Cannabidiol, and it’s an active chemical found in marijuana, a plant that is grown and harvested for the psychoactive effects caused by ingesting it, which has historically been done through smoking. However, marijuana is still classified as a Schedule I drug by the federal government due to its high potential for dependency. In spite of that, the majority of U.S. states permit the regulated usage of marijuana, including CBD products.

CBD is available for legal state purchase in the vast majority of U.S. states. In 2022, there are only four states who do not have any way to legally purchase CBD or other marijuana products. Programs in states where marijuana is legal vary in the liberality of what they permit. In all states where marijuana is legally sold, it is regulated by the state. 

In certain states that have the most liberal programs, medical and adult recreation programs provide marijuana for consumption and are regulated by the state. Although it’s rare, it’s sometimes the case that a state or a territory only has an adult recreational marijuana program with no medical marijuana program in addition. 

About half the states in the U.S. have a comprehensive medical marijuana program alone, in which marijuana and marijuana-derived products are used for their reported therapeutic purposes, helping relieve short-term anxiety, movement disorders, cognition problems, and pain.
