Buying CBD in Alaska
As one of the early states to legalize recreational marijuana, Alaska has long taken a permissive stance on all hemp and cannabis-related products. In 2018 with the passage of Senate Bill, Alaska was one of the first states to enact a hemp pilot program allowing the farming and processing of hemp-derived CBD, even prior to the federal passage of the 2018 Farm Bill.
Retailers of CBD products are required to register as an industrial hemp retailer with the Alaskan Department of Natural Resources, and comply with certain labeling requirements for CBD products, but this currently only applies to in-state retail establishments. This rule for Alaskan retailers has actually been in effect since the 2014 Farm Bill, and was not changed by the passage of the 2018 Bill.
In addition to the federal limit that THC cannot exceed 0.3% THC by weight, Alaska imposes an additional limitation that no hemp product can contain more than 50 milligrams of total THC either. All CBDPure products comply with both the federal THC percentage limit and the Alaskan total THC per product limit.
