Indiana Legislature Passes Bill to Legalize Medical Use of CBD, Now Goes to Governor

Legislation to legalize the medical use of cannabidiol (CBD) has been approved by Indiana’s full legislature.

CBD tincture.

The measure was approved 98 to 0 by the state’s House of Representatives on Tuesday, following approval from the Senate. It now goes to Governor Eric Holcomb for consideration.

Under the proposed law, it would be legal for those with a seizure disorder to possess and use medicines that contain marijuana-derived CBD, given they receive a recommendation from a physician. Tinctures, oils and pills would all be allowed, given they contain little virtually no tetrahydrocannabinol (THC).
