Legality of Some CBD Oil in Doubt

A number of healthcare professionals are using non-prescription CBD oil, sometimes upon the recommendation of their healthcare providers. Unfortunately, the legality of this is unclear. Furthermore, the use of CBD oil can sometimes cause drug screens to show as positive for THC. Monitoring programs such as the North Carolina Physicians Health Program prohibit its use because testing sometimes cannot distinguish between CBD and marijuana. The FDA and the North Carolina Department of Agriculture have issued statements outlining their positions.
