Do I need a medical card to purchase CBD?


You do not need a card to purchase CBD from hemp that contains less than .03% THC. It is sold legally throughout most of the US, but it is not regulated. It is extremely important to purchase a high-quality CBD product that has been tested to make sure there are no impurities and that the product actually contains CBD. Many products found online and in stores are mislabeled and some contain no CBD at all. In some states, you DO need a card to purchase other medical cannabis products, including non-hemp CBD. If you live in a state that sells products for adult use, I can teach you the differences between adult use and medical use.
