North Carolina does not have a medical marijuana program, but it does allow CBD products to be prescribed for intractable epilepsy (HB 766, 2015). The products must contain less than 0.9% THC and at least 5% CBD. As of 2016, the state also has an industrial hemp pilot program. Recreational marijuana is still illegal in North Carolina.
