HB-410 CBD Oil Facts of the Matter
CBD oil is a regulated narcotic according to Chapter 27, Title 37, Idaho Code. It is currently a felony to possess, distribute or consume CBD Oil according to current statute. House Bill 410 has been drafted in response to a substantial and growing public awareness for the many health benefits its use has been proven to be effective and safe.
CBD Oil contains trace amounts of THC, up to 0.3%, which is the component that makes the oil illegal under Idaho Code. The concentrations of THC in CBD Oil is well below any hallucinogenic effect that could occur using the oil, some manufacturers have even prepared CBD Oil with no THC content. Much of the concern, as reported by many Idaho Legislators, is to the content of THC in the product and the quality of the product itself. There is little argument against the many and varied health benefits which have been reported and recognized across America.
The benefit of legal use of CBD Oil in the promotion of health and freedom of personal choice far outweighs any negative effects that are argued for its continued illegal status. There is however, a real and politically sensitive exchange that must be addressed should CBD Oil gain favor with the Idaho Legislature and most importantly, the Governor.
As of today, it is likely that a veto override majority in the legislature will be necessary to legalize CBD Oil in Idaho. To accommodate the necessary votes required to pass this bill and to insure public safety, HB-410 addresses three administrative requirements that lessen concerns about use and quality of product giving promise to thousands of Idaho users who risk felony conviction every day.
Conditions for legal use of CBD Oil include procurement of a quality product by reputable manufacturers who test and label THC content. Some suppliers of CBD Oil do not prepare quality products. The content of THC can vary greatly and in some instances the oil has been substituted with inert or artificial ingredients. A recent case involving poor quality CBD Oil or synthetics at the Army Medical Center in Fort Bragg, North Carolina left approximately 60 patients suffering from nausea, palpitations, dizziness and pupil dilation.
Secondly, Idaho’s CBD bill would require a medical doctor prescribe the oil under his/her direction. A child with epilepsy or other disorders should be seen by a physician to help chart the best path for continued care. Adults with a variety of maladies would want to make sure chronic pain isn’t indicative of more serious conditions.
Finally, a registration card, obtained through the Idaho Board of Pharmacy, would be carried by the patient as proof of their legal possession of CBD Oil in the treatment of an illness so prescribed. Law enforcement would be the only agency with access to this information to verify the directed use.
