Which States Allow You to Legally Buy and Use CBD Products?

Thanks to the Hemp Farming Act of 2018, the U.S. government now classifies cannabis and hemp as two different categories of substances, with different laws applied to each. As a result, the federal government allows the sale of hemp-based CBD products with a THC content of less than 0.3 percent.

Keep in mind, however, that individual states don't have to make CBD or other hemp products legal, even if the federal government allows them to do so. Some states may permit the sale of CBD in one form but not another (tincture as opposed to gummies, for instance), potentially limiting your choice of products.

Why Don't Manufacturers Advertise CBD as a PTSD Treatment?

If the federal government allows the sale of hemp-derived CBD, and if CBD appears to show clear benefits for PTSD sufferers, you may wonder why you don't see it advertised expressly for that purpose. 

The FDA, which regulates the sale and marketing of a wide range of ingredients, drugs, and additives in the U.S., has not officially approved CBD as a cure or treatment for any medical condition, including PTSD. However, this prohibition does not bar individuals from using CBD for their own general purposes.
