Virginia

  • Hemp-sourced CBD: LEGAL
  • Marijuana-sourced CBD for medical use only: LEGAL
  • Marijuana-sourced CBD for recreational use: ILLEGAL

Virginia originally legalized the medical use of CBD oil and THC-A oil to treat intractable epilepsy in 2015 (HB 1445). In 2018, Virginia passed a bill that broadly expanded the legalization of medical CBD oil to be prescribed for “any diagnosed condition or disease determined by the practitioner to benefit from such use” (HB 1251). Virginia launched its industrial hemp pilot program after the 2014 Farm Bill was passed. Recreational marijuana is still illegal in Virginia.
