Hemp Laws In South Carolina

The CBD laws in South Carolina are relatively simple, but the repercussions of violating those laws are much more complex. Violating a state's cannabis and hemp laws can leave consumers in serious criminal or even civil trouble. Thus, it is important that CBD users are knowledgeable about their states CBD laws and regulations before making a purchase. In this blog we will discuss the different laws pertaining to CBD within the state of South Carolina as well our guide to shopping for CBD online. 


Is CBD Legal in SC?

In 2014, Governor Nikki Haley signed the Senate Bill 1035, titled ‘Julian’s Law,’ making it legal for consumers to gain access to medicinal cannabis, including medical-grade high THC and CBD products. While this was a step in the right direction, this law also came with its restrictions. Julian's Law specifies that only citizens with debilitating conditions whose physicians prescribed marijuana as a part of their long-term treatment plan can access medical CBD. Additionally, the medical-grade CBD can only be obtained from licensed dispensaries in South Carolina.


Fast-forward a few years to when the The Agriculture Improvement Act of 2018 (2018 Farm Bill) was signed. This Farm Bill legalized hemp, by removing the crop and its derivatives from the definition of marijuana under the Controlled Substances Act (CSA). South Carolina permitted growers to plant hemp and distribute hemp as long as the THC content was under 0.3 percent. This means that all CBD- derived hemp products containing under the alluded amount of THC are considered legal in the state of South Carolina. 


Age Requirements for CBD 

In most jurisdictions and stores, users must be over the age of eighteen to purchase CBD products in South Carolina. However, select stores and smoke shops have bumped this age to twenty-one to make it consistent with other established rules in the shop. These same rules apply to online CBD retailers. 


Buying CBD Online: Our Guide

Purchasing CBD through an online retailer such as Experience CBD is completely legal in the state of South Carolina. If you are ordering from another state, however, it is important that you are familiar with your state's CBD Laws before purchasing. Most online retailers should provide a list of the states and countries that they ship or do not ship too. This information is typically located on the shipping policies page. Consumers should also have access to lab reports regarding CBD and THC content. Purchasing CBD products with a THC content exceeding the legal limits could constitute a serious violation. Thus, always check your lab report for consistency.
