Everyone wants to know - Is CBD Oil Legal in Georgia?
Although hemp was legalized in the 2018 Farm Bill, every state can choose to regulate CBD how they see fit. CBD is widely available online, in retail store and convenient stores across the state, but you should be aware of the caveats in Georgia's laws regarding CBD.

What are the CBD laws in Georgia?
In Georgia, all CBD must be derived from industrial hemp (defined as cannabis with less than 0.3% THC) vs marijuana (defined as cannabis with greater than 0.3% THC). Although they are widely sold, the Georgia Agricultural Commissioner stated in 2019 that CBD should not be sold in edible form or as an additive to food and drinks.
Where can I buy CBD in Georgia?
CBD can be purchased in many forms in retail shops and convenient stores across the state. Since there is very little regulation in the industry, you never really know what you're getting (some of the oils are black or brown - yuk!) when you purchase this way and the products sold are generally overpriced compared to buying CBD oil online.
If you want to ensure you are getting the best quality products at the best price, you should look for your CBD products online. Reputable retailers will always have lab test results posted so you can ensure your product is legitimate and safe.
