Michigan explicitly states that CBD cannot be used within foods or beverages, nor can products be advertised as a dietary supplement of any kind. Despite a strong plea from the state to the USDA, Michigan does not allow the sale of CBD-infused foods or beverages. If the USDA changes its mind on the classification, then there’s a good chance that Michigan will change its regulations, as well. But, until then, these types of CBD products are not legal in Michigan state.
Here at Palm Organix, we want to make sure you have all the information you need to enjoy your CBD with confidence, no matter what state you’re in. But, if you’re a resident of Michigan (or are planning on visiting or moving there soon), this one’s for you. Let’s get started.
CBD Oil Michigan: Rules and Regulations
This new program, run by the Michigan Department of Agriculture and Rural Development, had yet to be unveiled in 2020, but is in the works for 2021 — if it gets approved by the USDA, that is. However, even while this program sits in limbo, farmers can still cultivate hemp under the previous program the state enacted.
Cannabis-derived CBD is also legal in Michigan. Interestingly enough, the state treats cannabis-derived CBD the same as hemp-derived CBD if it does not contain more than 0.3% THC. This means that, occasionally, you may come across some cannabis-derived CBD at your local health and wellness shop — just remember that it still contains less than 0.3% THC! If a hemp-derived CBD product has more than this amount, the state will regulate it as marijuana, and you must purchase it from a licensed dispensary.
The Farm Bill Act descheduled some cannabis products from the Controlled Substances Act for the first time in early 2019. Included in the list is Industrial Hemp, the strain of Cannabis that CBD is made from, so long as the THC level in CBD does not exceed .3% THC. THC stands for tetrahydrocannabinol, which is the psychoactive ingredient present in marijuana which is known to create the psychoactive effects many know as a “high.”
