CBD & Hemp
The new Farm Bill requires retail stores planning to sell CBD products to register with the state’s health department. Texas stores may sell hemp products such as CBD oil if they contain less than .3% of THC.
Hemp, and hemp products containing less than .3% THC are legal.
The postal service has said last year’s farm bill allows hemp oils and other products to be shipped throughout the country from Texas.
-As of Fall 2019, a person transporting hemp in the state of Texas must possess a hemp certificate from the state. Failure to have the certificate is a criminal offense. Possession of a forged certificate is a felony.
The state has yet to issue any such certificates.
The law on CBD and hemp in Texas is a shifting set of rules as the state gets its policies in order and these new regulations are tested in the legal system.
