Is CBD Legal in Rhode Island?

In the “Ocean State” of Rhode Island, CBD oil derived from industrial hemp is legal for production and retail sales. Rhode Island was one of the earliest states in the United States to introduce legislation allowing residents to use medical marijuana, passing laws in 2006 creating a medical marijuana program. From 2006 to 2014, when the Farm Bill passed, removing the “prohibition” on industrial hemp, CBD oil was only available to medical marijuana cardholders. Now that the Farm Bill has permitted the cultivation and production of CBD products derived from industrial hemp, containing less than 0.3% THC, Rhode Island residents are able to enjoy the many benefits that CBD oil and related products offer. Thanks to its proximity to our home state of Vermont, hundreds of happy Vermont Hemp Health customers call Rhode Island home and trust Vermont Hemp Health to provide them with high quality CBD products.
