The production and possession of CBD products with less than 0.03% of THC are federally legal. However, each state has its own hemp regulations that can affect the possession of CBD, cannabis, and other hemp products.
CBD in South Carolina
Hemp was grown in the state since the early 18th century for rope and cloth. In the early twentieth century, hemp became classified or known as marijuana, then becoming illegal to grow in any form. There became exceptions later for research purposes to be licensed and grown hemp. Under Julian’s law, SB1035, allowed for medical cannabis to be prescribed for children with severe epilepsy in 2014. In 2017, CBD could be prescribed by a doctor for a specific list of medical conditions.
CBD & Hemp Regulations
CBD is now legal throughout South Carolina with the federal regulations in the 2018 federal farm bill. Part of those regulations means that CBD cannot contain more than 0.3% of CBD for general use. Delta 8 THC is legal to sell and purchase with in the state as well. Medical cannabis has remained the same since 2017 while continuing to gain support. Medical CBD with no more than 0.9% of THC in CBD can be prescribed under a limited list of conditions.
