United States. As of November 2019, CBD extracted from marijuana remains a Schedule I Controlled Substance, and is not approved as a prescription drug, dietary supplement, or allowed for interstate commerce in the United States.
The Oregon Liquor Control Commission (OLCC), which regulates both alcohol and cannabis in Oregon, announced it would ban the sale of alcohol drinks containing cannabidiol —commonly known as CBD —a substance found in cannabis.
Currently, the only CBD product approved by the Food and Drug Administration is a prescription oil called Epidiolex. It's approved to treat two types of epilepsy. If you plan to use products containing CBD, talk to your doctor.
The use of cannabis for medicinal purposes has however been legal for some time. To help employers provide the best health care options available, Sun Life Financial is now offering optional medical cannabis coverage under its Extended Health Care (EHC) plan.
It is true that section 12619 of the Farm Bill removes hemp -derived products from its Schedule I status under the Controlled Substances Act, but the legislation does not legalize CBD generally. As I have noted elsewhere on this blog CBD generally remains a Schedule I substance under federal law.
