Acknowledgment of Federal Cannabis Law User expressly acknowledges that Leafly is for residents with laws regulating medical or the recreational use of cannabis only and that medical cannabis collectives and patients are established pursuant to their respective State laws. Marijuana is included on Schedule 1 under the United States Controlled Substances Act. Under the federal laws of the United States of America, manufacturing, distributing, dispensing or possession of marijuana is illegal, and individuals are subject to arrest and/or prosecution for doing so. Client further acknowledges that medical use is not recognized as a valid defense under federal laws regarding marijuana. Client also acknowledges that the interstate transportation of marijuana is a federal offense.

Acknowledgment of Federal Hemp Law The sale, production and distribution of CBD oils/products derived from industrial hemp is not in violation of the Controlled Substances Act (CSA). In Hemp Indus. Ass’n. v. DEA, 357 F.3d 1012 (9th Cir. 2004), the Ninth Circuit ruled that naturally occurring cannabanoids in industrial hemp foods, including oil, were never scheduled under the CSA; therefore, the DEA has no jurisdiction. This means that CBD, and even THC, when in industrial hemp oil, are legal.

Industrial hemp products are not considered “marijuana” under the CSA. A company may acquire, possess, and produce products that are not defined as “marijuana.” The CSA definition of “marijuana” expressly and intentionally excludes “the mature stalks of such plant, fiber produced from such stalks, oil or cake made from the seeds of such plant, any other compound, manufacture, salt, derivative, mixture, or preparation of such mature stalks (except the resin extracted therefrom), fiber, oil, or cake, or the sterilized seed of such plant which is incapable of germination.” See 21 U.S.C. § 802(16). Thus, industrial hemp stalks, fibers, oils, or cakes derived from a hemp plant i are not legally defined as marijuana, and are, therefore lawful to possess. The DEA has no authority to regulate drugs that are not scheduled/defined. Id.; Hemp Indus. Ass’n. v. DEA, 357 F.3d 1012, 1014 (9th Cir. 2004).

Even industrial hemp containing THC is lawful under the CSA because natural THC that is not derived from “marijuana” is lawful under the CSA. The DEA can regulate products containing natural THC if it is contained within “marijuana,” and can regulate synthetic THC of any kind. But it cannot regulate naturally-occurring THC not contained within or derived from “marijuana,” i.e., non-intoxicating hemp products, because non-intoxicating hemp from the stalks and fibers of such a plant are not included in Schedule I. The DEA has no authority to regulate drugs that are not scheduled/defined. And the definition of THC under the CSA includes only synthetic THC. 21 C.F.R. § 1308.11(d)(27); Hemp Indus. Ass’n. v. DEA, 357 F.3d 1012, 1014 (9th Cir. 2004)(quoting Hemp Indus. Ass’n v. DEA, 333 F.3d 1082, 1089 (9th Cir. 2003).

The statements made regarding hemp/cannabidoil/CBD products have not been evaluated by the Food and Drug Administration. The efficacy of these products has not been confirmed by FDA-approved research.
