Texas and CBD laws.

CBD laws vary from state to state and there is a lot of confusion on where it is legal and where it is not. Texas is one state that has a very strict THC law and is well known for that. When it comes to CBD though since they passed the bill in 2019 they seem to have softened up with CBD. Here is some clarification for the state of Texas on where CBD fits into the law.

So what is the law with CBD in Texas?

In the state of Texas CBD also known as cannabidiol with .3% THC or less was taken off of the schedule I controlled substance list. Passage of the house bill 1325 on April 5th 2019 gave legality to CBD and also gave licensed retailers the ability to sell some CBD as long as it fell within the guidelines of the bill.

The Texas CBD medical program.

Texas has created a tough medial program for patients having the ability to carry CBD with up to .5% THC. Through this process you must prove severe illness. Some of these severe illnesses include epilepsy, multiple sclerosis, autism, terminal cancer and more. More illness seem to be added to this list as times passes check with local Texas authority for full list of illnesses.

CBD in Texas is legal as long as it falls under the .3% THC limitation. If you apply and get approved for a medical CBD card you are allowed to posses CBD with up to .5% THC. If a patient carries CBD with more then the legal limit of THC this is considered possession of cannabis and can carry felony charges.

 

Can the cops test your CBD in Texas?

There is no practical way for cops in Texas to take your CBD and test for THC. From the research we have done there is no equipment for guidelines for testing THC percentage of CBD in the field.
