CBD Hemp Flower Laws in Alabama
Alabama is one of the most hemp-friendly states in the U.S. right now. In Alabama, industrial hemp is an agricultural commodity, while hemp products—including hemp flower—are legal to produce, distribute, and sell.
Growing hemp in your backyard is not permitted. You need a license that is under Alabama’s USDA-approved regulatory plan to grow hemp. All applicants need to pay a certain fee to get a permit.
The hemp plant hasn’t been grown in Alabama since 1937, the year when cannabis was criminalized. Although 2018 was not a successful growing year for the state—no hemp was grown last year—this year, things are more than promising.
The current Alabama hemp law, allows legal cultivation, production, and distribution of hemp. According to the current law, hemp is defined as,
“The plant Cannabis sativa L. and any part of that plant, including the seeds thereof and all derivatives, extracts, cannabinoids, isomers, acids, salts, and salts of isomers, cultivated or possessed by a licensed grower or otherwise in accordance with the state’s USDA-approved regulatory plan, whether growing or not, with a delta-9 tetrahydrocannabinol concentration of not more than 0.3 percent on a dry weight basis.“
In March 2019, the state Department of Agriculture and Industries granted 180 licenses to applicants. The state also received and approved 70 applications from candidates interested in having hemp processing operations. By late summer of 2019, Alabama is expected to have its first legal hemp crop.
Both hemp and marijuana are different varieties of the cannabis plant. Hemp contains 0.3% THC or less and is non-psychoactive. To put it in other words, hemp won’t get you high.
In April 2019, Alabama passed a new law that allows pharmacies to offer CBD dietary supplements, after permitting retailers to sell hemp CBD a while ago. That being said, CBD extracted from marijuana is not legal in this state.
Alabama took a leap in the process of medical marijuana legalization. In June 2019, Gov. Kay Ivey signed SB 236 into law, a bill to set up a medical marijuana commission to study medical marijuana issue in Alabama. This bill is one step closer to Alabama potentially legalizing medical marijuana by 2020. The bill also extends Carly’s Law, allowing epilepsy patients to access CBD oil.
Can you legally buy CBD in Alabama?- YES!
After the passage of the 2018 Farm Bill, Steve Marshall, the Alabama Attorney General issued a notice which stated that
“CBD derived from industrial hemp with a THC concentration of not more than 0.3% on a dry weight basis, can be legally produced, sold, and possessed in the state of Alabama.” 
According to this statement, there are no direct limitations regarding possession and sale of hemp CBD products in Alabama. So, as long as they contain less than 0.3% THC on a dry weight basis, CBD products are legal to use.
