Is CBD Legal in Virginia?

Updated: Jun 2

Short answer is yes. Hemp-derived CBD oil containing no more than 0.3% THC is legal in all fifty states, as stated in the 2018 US Farm Bill. CBD itself has no psychoactive effect on users. THC is the cannabinoid compound in cannabis plants that cause psychoactive effects. Since there are trace amounts of THC in hemp plants (< 0.3%), we cannot guarantee that the use of CBD products will not cause you to test positive on a drug test for THC.

In Virginia, since CBD is legal, the big question is not availability but rather quality. All of our products are tested for potency, heavy metal, and pesticides post-harvest. Our end products are then tested again before being sold and distributed, ensuring the best quality we can deliver.

Finally, it may go without saying, but CBD oil does not require a prescription. You can add CBD oil to your daily regimen without necessary worry of adverse effects. Several sources state that the safe upper limit for CBD is near 1500 mg a day, which at these high doses may cause dry mouth, nausea, diarrhea, upset stomach, drowsiness, lightheadedness, or general disorientation. However, taking doses this high is not common practice. It is also notable that CBD tinctures are in oil form, which has about 100 calories per tablespoon – this may only be significant if taken in larger quantifies.

It is important to understand that no over-the-counter CBD products are approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. If you are taking other medications, particularly blood thinners, heart rhythm medications, thyroid medications, and seizure medications, please consult with your provider before taking CBD, especially if you are taking high doses of CBD.
