Ohio Pharmacies Can Now Sell CBD Products


Ohio Governor Mike DeWine signed Senate Bill 57 into law on July 30, 2019, legalizing hemp-derived products such as CBD.

Before the bill was passed, hemp was considered a controlled substance in Ohio, and CBD (cannabidiol) was only legally sold in state-licensed medical marijuana dispensaries, even with no or only trace amounts of psychoactive THC.

Retailers, including pharmacies, can now legally sell hemp-derived products in Ohio such as CBD oil. The Ohio Board of Pharmacy issued a guidance with FAQs on what this law means for pharmacists:

Recent updates to Ohio law (SB 57) change the definition of marijuana to no longer include hemp and hemp products with a THC content of no more than three-tenths of a percent. Hemp products, including hemp-derived CBD (cannabidiol), can now be sold outside of a licensed medical marijuana dispensary.
