Louisiana is starting to award licenses to sell CBD products, and the first recipients include liquor stores, gas stations and CBD-specific shops.
Louisiana’s Office of Alcohol and Tobacco Control has so far awarded 20 temporary permits to sell CBD.
Under the Louisiana law, hemp-derived CBD products can be sold if they have no more than 0.3% THC.
Louisiana bans smokable hemp products and CBD in alcoholic beverages and foods, saying those won’t be allowed until federal authorities approve CBD as a food additive.
