Kansas Governor Signs Law Allowing All Adults to Use CBD Products

Kansas Governor Jeff Colyer, a Republican, has signed legislation amending the state’s criminal code to explicitly exempt cannabidiol from the definition of marijuana.

Passage of Senate Bill 282 legalizes the possession and retail sale of products containing CBD, so long as they contain zero percent THC.

Unlike CBD-exemption laws enacted in most other states, Kansas’ new law permits all adults – not just those with qualified medical conditions – to possess and purchase CBD products.

In April, Indiana enacted similar legislation licensing the retail sale of CBD products to adults.
