What is CBD oil and where is it sold? Local police want to make sure it’s legal

Law enforcement agencies are starting to test cannabidiol oil, also known as CBD oil, sold in local businesses, but many owners say their CBD oil fits federal regulations.

The oil, which is derived from hemp plants, can contain small traces of THC, the part of cannabis that gives off the effect of feeling high.

By federal laws, CBD oil is legal, as long as it contains levels of THC under .3 percent.

South Carolina Law Enforcement Division, with the help of the Myrtle Beach Police Department, is in the process of checking the levels of THC in the oil to make sure they are under the legal limit, police chief Amy Prock said during Tuesday’s city council meeting.
