Everything You Need to Know About California CBD

December 15, 2020

With its progressive laws and laid-back atmosphere, California is a great state to buy, use, and sell CBD products. You’re also spoiled for choice when it comes to where to shop and which products to purchase.

There have been various cannabis-related legal changes in California in the past few years that have made CBD products more accessible than ever before. Both CBD and recreational marijuana are legal for adults over the age of 21.

Is CBD legal in California?

It’s legal to buy, sell, and use CBD in the state of California. State-licensed retailers can also sell recreational marijuana. The 2018 Farm Bill legalized CBD and recreational marijuana. Although, California was the first state to legalize medical marijuana back in 1996.

The laws around CBD in California can be confusing. The distinction has to do with the difference between CBD derived from industrial hemp plants versus CBD derived from flowering marijuana. Both are legal at present. However, there are specific guidelines users and retailers need to follow.

These guidelines include:

  • Hemp-derived CBD may not legally be used in eateries in food or drink products in California. 
  • Many retailers ask for your ID to check that you are over 21. 
  • It is illegal to consume or open cannabis content in public.
  • You can grow up to six marijuana plants at home and possess up to eight grams of concentrated cannabis content.
  • It is illegal to take cannabis across state lines, even if it’s legal in the state you are traveling to.
  • Only state-licensed retailers can sell cannabis products.

What CBD products can I buy in California?

As CBD becomes more popular, the range of products is increasing. You can purchase CBD oils, capsules, or CBD pre-rolls to name a few products. There are even products for pets. 

How you choose to take CBD can depend on what you are using it for and your preference.

How do I buy CBD?

California is a leader in the world of marijuana. This means there are countless options for where and how you can buy CBD products.

Wherever you’re shopping, you want to make sure that you’re getting high-quality products. While CBD is legal, it's not regulated by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). In other words, pretty much anyone can sell CBD products. You can find CBD in gas stations, supermarkets, online, and in specialty stores. 

The downside of CBD being unregulated is that some companies sell products that contain pesticides, heavy metals, or even no CBD at all. We recommend that you read labels carefully before purchasing any product.

When shopping for CBD, here are some precautions you can take:

  • While CBD has many health and wellness benefits, be careful of magical ‘cure-all’ claims. This is usually a sign that the product is not high-quality.
  • It’s best to pay attention to specific details like whether a product is tested by a third-party lab and exactly how much CBD a product contains. 
  • It can be helpful to read reviews to make sure you’re buying from trusted retailers.

Buying CBD online in California

Buying CBD products through online retailers in California is highly recommended. This lets you read reviews while comparing retailers, products, and prices. This way, you can be extra sure that you are getting what you need. And to make it super easy, shop our CBD store now!

If you’d prefer to shop in person and speak to retailers face-to-face, California has no shortage of dispensaries for you to choose from.

Final thoughts on CBD in California

With California’s progressive laws and abundance of dispensaries, you’re spoiled for choice when shopping for CBD products.

It’s a great idea to do your research before investing in CBD products. Whether you’re shopping online or in-person—high-quality, trusted products always trump a tempting discount or special offer.

Are you excited to start shopping for CBD? You can’t go wrong with California!
