CBD Legal States Policy

Medical Cannabis Policy State by State: North Carolina

What is the legal status of cannabis in North Carolina?

In 2014, HB 1220 was passed, protecting patients from prosecution for the possession and use of hemp oil containing less than 0.9% THC by weight and at least 5% CBD by weight.  The law was amended in 2016 to open protection to more patients and eliminate a registration requirement.  Currently, any product used must be acquired from outside of the state, and there is no protection for cultivators, producers, manufacturers, or dispensaries inside the state.

Furthermore, patients must go through three ineffective “traditional” treatment plans before becoming eligible for medical cannabis. CBD oil derived from Industrial Hemp is 100% legal in all 50 states, as this plant never has more than trace amounts of THC, but is generally rich in CBD and other cannabinoids.

Eligible Conditions:

  • Intractable epilepsy
