Virginia Legislature Passes Bill Allowing Use and Distribution of CBD and THC-A Oil

Virginia Legislature Passes Bill Allowing Use and Distribution of CBD and THC-A Oil


Virginia’s full legislature has given approval to legislation allowing for the production and distribution of medical oil made from cannabidiol (CBD) or THC-A (tetrahydrocannabinol acid).

Under current Virginia law, oil made from CBD or THCA (both compounds found in cannabis) is legal to possess and use for medical purposes, but only for those with intractable epilepsy. There also isn’t a safe, legal means for patients to access the oil.

The newly-approved measure would greatly expand the list of conditions that makes someone eligible to use these medicines to include HIV/AIDS, cancer, Crohn’s disease, multiple sclerosis and several others. The proposal also allows pharmacies to manufacture and distribute the medicines to qualified patients (those with a qualifying condition who receive a recommendation from a physician and register with the state).

The legislation now goes to Governor Terry McAuliffe for consideration.

Virginia’s full legislature also recently passed a measure to end driver’s license suspensions for marijuana possession charges.
