cbd cream in wisconsin

Yes. In Wisconsin, cannabidiol (CBD) has been legal for medical use since 2014, while hemp-derived CBD is available for adults 18 and older. In fact, Wisconsin was historically one of the nation’s largest producers of hemp until it was prohibited federally in 1958.

In 2017, Wisconsin passed a pilot hemp program in order to study the growth, cultivation, and marketing of industrial hemp. Called SB 199, the industrial hemp research program was limited to hemp below 1% THC in content, but this could be amended to meet the lower federal limit of 0.3% THC.

In order to produce industrial hemp plants for CBD oil in Wisconsin, a license is mandatory. The state has a hemp production application process by which farmers need to re-apply for annually. There are both grower and processor licenses which allow people to cultivate, store, handle, and convert industrial hemp into a marketable form.

CBD oil was legalized for medical use in Wisconsin in 2014. The legislation, known as Lydia’s Law but formally called the Wisconsin Act 267, legalized CBD oil but with very strict medical regulations. It was permitted primarily for those with seizure conditions.

The only form of CBD so far that has been approved by the FDA is Epidiolex, a seizure medication manufactured by G.W. Pharmaceuticals.

In the meantime, business is booming at Canni.

Thus, it is safe to say that, for now, CBD – which is not only available in specialty shops but mall kiosks, gas stations and adult entertainment shops as well – is tolerated in Wisconsin.

Aside from the aforementioned specialty shops, CBD products are also available at a Mayfair Mall kiosk called 414 Hemp that’s owned by former alderman Mike McGee Jr. as well as all Outpost Natural Foods locations.

Later this month, Outpost will also offer CBD oil as an extra in smoothies or juice bar drinks as well as house-made cookies that feature CBD oil.

Whether or not someone should drive after smoking or ingesting CBD is another question with uncertain answers. Common sense says because it could make a person sleepy, driving isn’t a good idea and yet it would be difficult to detect a driver was experiencing any side effects from it.
