The CBD hemp oil New Jersey customers have been anticipating is available in stores and online. New Jersey is known as “the Garden State”, with agriculture being one of its biggest industries. It is no surprise that the New Jersey government and citizens are finding interest in the many uses of the hemp plant including CBD. This article will discuss what CBD is, the legality of CBD, and where to buy CBD in NJ.
Is CBD legal In New Jersey?
Thanks to the 2014 Farm Bill, industrial hemp can be cultivated around the nation. CBD products are now available for purchase in New Jersey both in retail stores and online. They are over-the-counter products with no restrictions. The term “industrial hemp” relates to hemp that contains Non-Detectable THC. CBD is extracted from the industrial hemp plant, also known as Cannabis Sativa L. THC is the chemical in cannabis that induces psychotropic effects. Marijuana, for instance, is a variety of cannabis that contains much higher levels of THC than industrial hemp. Green Roads CBD products have a 0% THC content, and therefore customers can enjoy their CBD without the effects of THC.
New Jersey Supports The Marijuana Movement
The newly elected New Jersey Governor, Phil Murray, is an advocate for the legalization of marijuana and is already in the process of loosening some restrictions on the medical marijuana laws within the state. “The criminalization of marijuana has only served to clog our courts and cloud people’s futures, so we will legalize marijuana”, said Murray. This means that the new bill A2719 may finally be passed, allowing the growing and marketing of hemp products in New Jersey.
Where Can I Buy CBD Hemp Oil In New Jersey?
A prescription is not needed to purchase CBD. CBD products can be found on store shelves and are offered by online vendors. Customers are strongly encouraged to research products before buying them. Some products are untested, and the purity of their CBD cannot be guaranteed. Green Roads guarantees that all of their products are lab-tested. Furthermore, their CBD goes through a Co2 extraction process, which removes all traces of THC. This ensures pure, high-quality CBD within every product.

*The legal landscape around CBD is unclear and changing rapidly both at the Federal and State level. Federally, the 2018 Farm bill legalized industrial hemp and its derivatives, including CBD, however, the bill specifically provided that States may have more restrictive legislation.
At the State and local level, while CBD has been declared legal in a number of States or localities, in others its status remains unsettled and the landscape is changing rapidly. Even in States and localities where the law is adverse, enforcement is haphazard and often stems from misinformation or misunderstanding.
It is important to understand that, generally, the law is more favorable towards CBD produced from hemp than from marijuana and Green Roads’ products are produced exclusively from hemp. Also Green Roads products contain undetectable levels of THC.
