Effective Thursday, Mar. 21, 2019 The Office of Alcohol and Tobacco Control Halted Sales of all CBD Products

KNOE Channel 8 News in Louisiana is reporting along with multiple media outlets that effective Mar. 21, 2019 The Louisiana Office of Alcohol and Tobacco Control Halted Sales of all CBD products in Louisiana. According to the ATC there have been complaints that some of the CBD products being sold in the state of Louisiana may contain THC.

As with many other states, the passing of the 2018 Farm Bill by the United States Congress, Louisiana state law is now in conflict with federal law, which legalized the growing of the hemp product. The agency doesn’t think the packaging clearly distinguishes between the THC form and the Hemp form of CBD oil. Some of our affiliate products may be on the list of banned CBD substances so please obey your state laws in regards to purchasing CBD in the state of Louisiana.

CBD advisory notices were sent out to businesses last week who had alcohol or tobacco licenses, and told them by the end of the month they would be enforcing the law, so they should begin unloading inventories and making the necessary arrangements to clear their shelves of CBD products, or risk losing their alcohol and tobacco licenses.

Retailers and the ATC are both looking to Louisiana legislatures on guidance about CBD products from hemp oil versus the medicinal marijuana version of the products that contain THC. THC is not legal in the state of Louisiana, and is not present in high enough amounts to produce the psychoactive effects produced by marijuana, a different plant but both cannabis species.
