In accordance with the 2018 Farm Bill, hemp-sourced CBD is legal in the state of Alabama, according to a public notice from the State Attorney General. Specifically, CBD sourced from marijuana is legal for treating debilitating seizures (Carly’s Law, 2014), and can be possessed by the parents and legal guardians of these parents (Leni’s Law, 2016).
However, possession of marijuana for personal use is a Class A misdemeanor, as recreational marijuana is not legal in Alabama.
