INDIANAPOLIS — Gov. Eric Holcomb signed a measure legalizing low-THC cannabidiol oil in Indiana Wednesday, after nearly a year of confusion over Indiana’s laws.
Senate Enrolled Act 52 allows any person to buy, sell and possess CBD oil, as long as it meets certain labeling requirements and contains no more than 0.3 percent THC, the substance that produces a “high.”
The bill is also silent on the legality of manufacturing the product in Indiana, which could lead to more legal debates in the future.
Holcomb, however, had no qualms about the act.
“Indiana lawmakers delivered a bill that ensures Hoosiers who benefit from CBD oil can access it,” Holcomb said in a statement. “The bill provides much needed clarity, with labeling requirements and a 0.3% THC limit on CBD products.”
The final version of Senate Bill 52 requires manufacturers to have each batch of product tested in order to ensure it has less than 0.3 percent THC.
