Is CBD Legal?

Is CBD Legal?

We've all asked this question at some point. In the United States and surrounding countries, pure CBD derived from hemp is considered a dietary supplement and is legal to produce and distribute to all 50 states. Green Valley Nutrition CBD contains zero THC and is thereby exempt from the Federal Controlled Substances Act.

However, compliance with existing laws and regulations is critical for all companies selling CBD products. Although this industry is young, there are federal guidelines and precedents as to labeling, cannabinoid concentrations, and claims about the effects of CBD-infused products. All Green Valley Nutrition CBD products proudly comply with all existing guidelines, including:
    • The Agricultural Act of 2014

    • The Controlled Substances Act of 1970

    • Section 763 of The Omnibus Appropriations Act of 2016

    We also comply with all relevant state laws having jurisdiction over both nutritional supplements and hemp-derived products. For example, the state of Virginia requires that hemp-derived products include on their labeling some objective proof as to the THC levels and hemp-derived nature of the product.

    Virginia § 3.2-4113. Production of industrial hemp lawful.
