The Senate Corrections and Criminal Law heard HB 1214 sponsored by Sen. Young on CBD oil and industrial hemp. The bill repeals all provisions concerning the cannabidiol registry and a “substance containing cannabidiol” (all added by HEA 1148-2017) and legalizes CBD oil, repeals superseded provisions relating to cannabidiol registration, and establishes that there is sufficient probable cause to issue a warrant if a trained and certified narcotics detection canine lawfully indicates and detects industrial hemp or CBD oil.

The bill was amended to instead define “low THC hemp extract” as a product derived from Cannabis sativa L. that contains not more than 0.3% delta-9-THC and no other controlled substances. It also establishes requirements for the manufacture and sale of low THC hemp extract. The amended bill passed 6-2.
