Everything you need to know about CBD and hemp products
Cannabidiol (CBD) is a phytocannabinoid which was first discovered in 1940. It is one of 113 identified cannabinoids in cannabis plants and accounts for up to 40% of the plant’s extract. As of 2019, clinical research on CBD included studies related to anxiety, cognition, movement disorders, and pain.
Cannabidiol can be taken in multiple ways, including by inhalation of cannabis smoke or vapor, as an aerosol spray into the cheek, and by mouth. It may be supplied as CBD oil containing only CBD as the active ingredient (excluding tetrahydrocannabinol [THC] or terpenes), CBD-dominant hemp extract oil, capsules, dried cannabis, or prescription liquid solution. CBD does not have the same psychoactivity as THC, and may change the effects of THC on the body if both are present. CBD, however, does not produce any of the narcotic effects that are associated with THC. – Wikipedia
CBD vs THC
CBD stands for cannabidiol. It is the second most prevalent of the active ingredients of cannabis (marijuana). While CBD is an essential component of medical marijuana, it is derived directly from the hemp plant, which is a cousin of the marijuana plant. While CBD is a component of marijuana (one of hundreds), by itself it does not cause a “high.” According to a report from the World Health Organization, “In humans, CBD exhibits no effects indicative of any abuse or dependence potential…. To date, there is no evidence of public health related problems associated with the use of pure CBD.”

Is CBD Legal?
CBD is readily obtainable in most parts of the United States, though its exact legal status is in flux. All 50 states have laws legalizing CBD with varying degrees of restriction, and while the federal government still considers CBD in the same class as marijuana, it doesn’t habitually enforce against it. In December 2015, the FDA eased the regulatory requirements to allow researchers to conduct CBD trials. Currently, many people obtain CBD online without a medical cannabis license. The government’s position on CBD is confusing, and depends in part on whether the CBD comes from hemp or marijuana. The legality of CBD is expected to change, as there is currently bipartisan consensus in Congress to make the hemp crop legal which would, for all intents and purposes, make CBD difficult to prohibit.
NM CBD Law
Is CBD Legal in NM?
Yes. Hemp-derived CBD is legal in New Mexico, while marijuana-derived CBD is permitted for qualifying patients registered with the state’s medical marijuana program. Like many states, New Mexico has legalized the production of hemp and products derived from it, including cannabidiol (CBD), following suit with federal changes made under the U.S. Farm Bill in 2014 and 2018.

Why is CBD Sometimes Illegal?
The 1970 Federal Controlled Substances Act categorized all types of cannabis, including hemp, as Schedule 1, defined as a substance with a high potential for abuse, no accepted medical use, and a likelihood for addiction. The act prevented further research that may have shed light on beneficial uses for cannabis.
This broad classification was first changed following the passage of the 2014 Farm Bill, which recognized the difference between hemp, which contains less than 0.3% THC by weight, and marijuana, which contains more than 0.3% THC by weight and is still considered to be a Schedule 1 substance.
First, let’s address the legality of CBD on the Federal Level.
Yes, purchasing CBD is federally legal as long as it doesn’t contain more than 0.3 percent THC (Enchantment Hemp Farms products are federally qualified). Above all, this is the biggest factor in current CBD legislation.
However, some states do place restrictions on some CBD products or transactions. For a list of restrictions state-by-state, click here or scroll down.
For instance, in New Jersey, New Mexico, and North Dakota CBD Products are legal without restriction.
To be clear, CBD derived from the hemp plant causes no significant impairment, cannot show up on most drug tests, and remains legal for all consumers in the state of New Mexico. As such, much of New Mexico’s legalization comes from the state’s recognition of the Federal Farm Bill of 2014 (and subsequent legislation of the FFBA 2018), which legalized the entirety of the industrial hemp industry in New Mexico.
While CBD remains legal for all citizens in New Mexico, CBD and hemp products produced outside of the state are still illegal (read more). Accordingly, Enchantment Hemp Farms produces it’s own hemp, processes the harvest, and bottles it’s products right here in New Mexico.
However, for the average CBD user, New Mexico allows both the traditional purchase and the online purchase of CBD products. However, they must be derived from the industrial hemp plant and remain below the legal THC limit set by the 2014 Farm Bill.
In March 2019, New Mexico lawmakers passed HB 581. Subsequently legalizing hemp and introducing the process of establishing regulations for its production, testing, transportation, and processing.
As a result of HB 581, individual permits are required for growing, extracting, and manufacturing hemp products, meaning a vertically integrated operation would need to obtain three separate permits, each of which cost $1,000 per year. Additionally, a harvest certificate, obtained after testing by a state-licensed facility, and manifest are required to follow all products through the supply chain.
