Indiana: Governor Signs CBD Exemption Measure

Indianapolis, IN: Governor Erin Holcolm has signed legislation, HB 1148, exempting qualified patients from criminal penalties for the physician-authorized use of cannabinol (CBD) extracts.

The measure permits patients registered with the state to possess cannabidiol extract preparations that possess at least ten percent CBD and no more than 0.3 percent THC.

The law neither provides for an in-state supply source for CBD, nor does it establish a regulated distribution system for CBD-specific products.

Sixteen states have enacted similar laws explicitly recognizing cannabidiol as a legislative therapeutic agent.
