CBD Products Legalised in Asheville

The city of Asheville in North Carolina blue Mountains is perhaps best known for its vibrant arts scene and historical culture.

However, on May the 4th 2020  the city’s schools became the only schools in their district that approved the use of CBD (cannabidiol), after revising its drugs policy.

Asheville broke free from its neighbouring districts Transylvania, Henderson and Buncombe, all of which forbade the use of CBD during their respective board meetings.

Asheville’s  explanation of the decision was clear stating that “Many families are using CBD oil as medicinal supplements for their health and wellness effects.”   Shane Cassada, ACS Assistant Superintendent, said in an email to the Citizen Times, “Effectively leaving CBD on the (prohibited) list would have created a much larger issue that is not currently a problem.”

Back in September 2019, 47 out of 115 of school districts adopted the NCSBA’s (North Carolinas School Board Association) policies of banning “any substance containing cannabidiol (CBD) or tetrahydrocannabinol (THC).” As schools fear they will not be able to differentiate between CBD and THC.

Back in February 2019 Asheville board members actually considered banning CBD, but this was overruled with one board member, Joyce Brown, saying, “I think in Asheville a lot of people are using alternative medicine, like CBD, and it just doesn't make sense for us to add something to that policy that is not an illicit drug,” Brown told the Citizen Times. “It doesn't seem like it's out of the question that somebody might be using it for pain management or some other health condition.”

As we know CBD (cannabidiol) is derived  from the hemp plant and is best known for its healing properties. It has long been used in both the beauty and the food industry and has proven to be extremely beneficial.

Many CBD users report benefits ranging from anxiety relief to cancer treatment.

THC on the other hand is another compound from the hemp plant, short for tetrahydrocannabinol, a psychoactive compound that alters the brain and can change perception, mood and behaviours. The THC level of hemp is typically 0.3% or less.

This welcome move by Asheville comes only two years after the FDA  (The Food and Drug Administration) passed  the 2018 Farm Bill that was overwhelmingly passed in all U.S. states it is illegal for hemp growers and CBD-product manufacturers to grow Hemp so the big news is hemp will no longer be equated under drug laws with its psychotropic cousin, marijuana.
