File Size:228kB


The Attorney General’s office has received questions about the legality of products containing cannabidiol (CBD). CBD is a specific type of cannabinoid that occurs naturally in cannabis plants. Confusion about the legality of CBD products has increased in light of the federal Agriculture Improvement Act of 2018 (2018 Farm Bill, Section 10113), as well as the passage of state legislation including Senate File 599, known as the Iowa Hemp Act, and House File 2581. This memorandum is meant to clarify the legal status of CBD products under Iowa law, provide pertinent information about the legal status of CBD under federal law, provide information to people who are interested in buying or selling CBD products, and clarify enforcement authority.
