A bill that would legalize the sale of CBD oil with low THC levels unanimously passed Wednesday through a House committee, signaling another step toward the legalization of CBD oil in Indiana.
Senate Bill 52 defines “low THC hemp extract” as a product containing no more than 0.3 percent THC, the main psychoactive ingredient in marijuana, and no other controlled substances.
CBD, or cannabidiol, is a non-psychoactive derivative of the cannabis plant. It is used to treat epilepsy and other seizure disorders. This bill would legalize the sale of products made with no more than 0.3 percent THC.
SB 52 is one of multiple bills that focus on CBD and hemp oil legalization currently making its way through the Indiana General Assembly.
