Virginia law allows hemp-derived CBD oil products with less than 0.3 percent THC to be sold without limitations. However, the phrase “no restrictions” is ambiguous. It means anyone may own hemp-derived CBD without restrictions or prescriptions. CBD is a cannabinoid found in marijuana and hemp plants.

CBD may be purchased for its anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, and anti-anxiety qualities. But not all CBD products are federally legal. CBD oil is derived from two Cannabis sativa plants: hemp and marijuana. Only hemp-derived CBD oil is allowed in all 50 states, provided it contains less than 0.3 percent THC. THC is the psychoactive cannabinoid or chemical in cannabis plants.

A Virginia medical marijuana card lasts 12 months (1 year).
