Why It May Be Difficult to Get CBD Oil in Wisconsin

The popularity of CBD oil in Wisconsin doesn’t automatically mean that it is a breeze to access CBD products.

Part of the problem is its close relationship to marijuana.

CBD oil can be extracted from either marijuana or hemp plants. As you may know, marijuana is illegal in Wisconsin, and the existing state laws restrict the use of CBD oil to only people who have a doctor’s recommendation. Many people still think that CBD oil is cannabis, which also makes it hard to access the best CBD oil in the state.

History of CBD Oil Legalization in Wisconsin

Hemp has a long history in Wisconsin. Up until 1908, it was widely grown in the state. However, the last company to commercially grow hemp in the US folded in 1958. The federal restrictions imposed after the World Wars took their toll and sent the hemp industry to its grave.

Current Legality of CBD Oil in Wisconsin

The federal government legalized hemp in 2018. This theoretically legalized all the products derived from this plant nationwide. However, there was still confusion about the legality of CBD oil in Wisconsin, since state law prohibited the use of this oil unless you have a recommendation from a doctor and were approved by the state to use the oil.

There is good news, however.
