A number of North Carolina lawmakers are pushing to ban CBD in its original form– smokable hemp.

CBD, like marijuana, comes from the cannabis plant. CBD, unlike marijuana, is not psychoactive but while it doesn’t produce a high it looks, smells and even smokes just like marijuana.

Since law enforcement officials cannot tell the difference between CBD flower and marijuana without lab testing, a number of NC lawmakers are looking to ban smokable hemp.

The Industrial Hemp Commission will hold an emergency public meeting on Tuesday, July 23 at 4 p.m.

The bill we be heard at the House Judiciary Committee on Wednesday, July 24 at 10 a.m.
