CBD in Kentucky
Hemp and Kentucky have a long history. Hemp was grown in early Kentucky as a textile crop for ropes, fabrics, and paper. With a downturn after World War Two and then classified as a controlled substance in 1970 under the Control Substances Act, hemp was not legally accessible to the general public in many states. Thankfully, hemp is making a comeback. In 2017, the Kentucky House Bill 50 called for the research and regulation of research of hemp in Kentucky. The passing of the 2018 Farm Bill and KY 218A.10 allows a person in Kentucky to sell and possess CBD legally. There are regulations for sellers and consumers.
