  1. State status reflects current laws at the time of update, not pending legislation or future dates upon which marijuana becomes available medicinally or recreationally. States with legislation that has passed but has a future enactment date will be marked with an asterisk *.
  2. CBD oil can be made with or without THC. This chart is specifically referring to CBD Oil with THC as an ingredient. CBD oil with THC is illegal in states marked as "Fully Illegal".
  3. All "statuses" are subject to state limits. E.g., CBD Oil may only be legal to 0.5% THC or marijuana may only be legal to one ounce. Please consult state laws.
