Is CBD Legal in Virginia?

CBD, along with THC-A oil, is legal in Virginia, but only with a written doctor’s recommendation. Legislation passed in 2018 allows for Virginia medical practitioners to issue a certification for CBD oil to patients who would benefit from the product, allowing practitioners to only purchase a 90-day supply at a time. This legislation permits for CBD oil that contains at least 15% CBD and less than 5% THC to be sold through permitted dispensaries. The Farm Bill of 2018, which many consider the end of prohibition for CBD products and industrial hemp, permits the production and sale of industrial hemp derived CBD that contains less than 0.1% THC. This  has led to dozens of CBD-specific retailers opening up shop across Virginia and online, selling to Virginia residents.

History of Industrial Hemp in Virginia

Industrial hemp was once a mainstay crop of farms throughout the state of Virginia. In the Jamestown settlement of the 1600s, it was actually illegal NOT to grow hemp on your property. In the 17th century, the utility provided by the hemp plant did not go unrecognized, with uses for the hemp plant ranging from cordage and textiles for bags and clothing, to oils extracted from the seeds used to varnish woods and make paints. Two of the most prolific farmers in the United States’ history, George Washington and Thomas Jefferson both grew hemp as a part of their crop. As of 2018, the working farms at Montpelier and Mount Vernon, part of the museums that make up the grounds, reintroduced hemp to the property through a partnership with the University of Virginia, using the section of the farm to educate tourists on the usefulness of the hemp plant.

Do You Need a Prescription to Buy CBD in Virginia?
