CBD is legal in the State of Arizona. In 2014, a court ruling determined that CBD is medically useful for treating epilepsy. This means that buying CBD oil in Arizona is legal without a medical marijuana card, even though purchasing cannabis is still illegal. That’s because CBD can be derived from cannabis’ cousin industrial hemp.
This legality leaves open many business opportunities to start legal, cbd only, product lines for retail purchase without a license.
In AZ starting a brand is as easy as obtaining your LLC / TPT tax ID#, becoming a certified commercial or “cottage” kitchen (if youre making an edible product), buying bulk materials and ingredients, packaging, and trademarking for your brand.
Implementations of rigorous testing and cottage or commercial kitchen safety standards apply per AZ food safety laws.
