LANSING, Mich. (AP) — Michigan’s market for oil-based marijuana products will now be covered by medical marijuana laws, state regulators announced Thursday.
The Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs issued its first clarification of CBD oil, declaring that state laws allow for its sale to medical marijuana patients — as long as the oil comes from marijuana, not hemp. CBD oil can be derived from either of the two plants, which are both a form of cannabis, though CBD does not give users the same “high” feeling commonly associated with smoking pot.
“We received lots of questions about if CBD was going to be regulated along with marijuana and how hemp plays into that,” said department spokesman David Harns. “Now is the right time to send out an advisory bulletin.”
