Hemp-sourced CBD: LEGAL
Marijuana-sourced CBD for medical use only: LEGAL
Marijuana-sourced CBD for recreational use: ILLEGAL
As of 2017, medical marijuana became legal in Florida under Article X Section 29 of the Florida Constitution. Marijuana-sourced CBD products intended for medical use in Florida are also legal, under specific conditions. Section 381.986 of the Florida Statutes defines low-THC cannabis products as those with 0.8% or less of THC and more than 10% of CBD. These can be prescribed by physicians for qualifying medical conditions.
However, recreational marijuana is still prohibited under the Florida Criminal Code and punishable as a misdemeanor or felony, depending on whether the individual has more than 20 grams. Florida began their industrial hemp pilot program in 2017.
