A bill that would legalize CBD oil for Hoosiers passes the Senate. Indiana Senate Bill 52 passed 35-13. Under the legislation, Hoosiers would be able to buy CBD oil that contains less than 0.3 percent or less of THC.
With the low amount of THC, CBD oil users would reportedly not experience a “high” feeling that conventional marijuana users may encounter.
CBD oil has been shown to help with various medical conditions such as cancer, epilepsy, and severe pain.
The oil would be available for purchase over-the-counter from retailers across the state.
The bill heads to the House for further consideration.
This bill is sponsored by Senator Jim Tomes (R-Wadesville).
