Your CBD Access In Ohio


Recently, the Ohio Board of Pharmacy issued guidance regarding the sale of CBD in Ohio. No distinction has been made between industrial hemp-derived CBD and CBD derived from marijuana. As a result of this guidance, no CBD can be sold in retail stores in Ohio. The only way to obtain CBD will be to get a marijuana medical card and go to a dispensary (which, by the way, there are none at present).

As a result of the Ohio Board of Pharmacy’s guidance, the Geauga County Prosecuting Attorney, James R. Flaiz, provided the Chardon store with a letter ordering us to remove our INDUSTRIAL HEMP-DERIVED CBD products within 30 days or be subject to criminal prosecution for marijuana trafficking . (See below)

All CBD products have now been removed from the Chardon store. The store will continue to offer the best choices in vaping devices and e-liquids. We encourage our valued CBD customers to continue to order your favorite HoneyBee and Extract Wellness Products from our e-commerce site, https://premiumhempco.com.

There a few things everyone can do to help keep CBD accessible for all Ohioans:

  • Sign the petition to KEEP CBD LEGAL IN OHIO.

  • Use your VOICE and VOTE on Tuesday, November 6, 2018.

  • Contact your legislators and let them know the current law is unacceptable. Industrial-based CBD should be treated separately from medical marijuana and accessible for all Ohioans.

  • WE WILL FIGHT! Currently, we are pursuing a class-action lawsuit against the State of Ohio. A GoFundMe has been established to assist us with legal expenses. We are asking for a donation so we can fight for all of our CBD customers’ access to CBD. More detailed information about this fight is available on our GoFundMe page.
