The use of medical marijuana and marijuana-derived CBD medications has been legal in the Garden State since 2010 when state bill known as the Medicinal Marijuana Program was passed. This program originally only detailed nine eligible conditions, but an additional five conditions were added in 2018. New Jersey’s Senate President Steve Sweeney recently said he would no longer try and legalize recreational marijuana usage through the state and instead turn to a popular vote in 2020. Until then, only those with one of the qualifying conditions and a medical recommendation for medical cannabis will have access. Products that are made with CBD extracted from industrial hemp are legal and easy-to-obtain in the state of New Jersey.
In 2018, the state passed an industrial hemp bill which helped to build the framework of proper cultivation, manufacturing, distribution, and possession of industrial hemp products. New Jersey’s laws align with the federal laws detailed in the Farm Bill of 2018 as well.

However, its usage should be in accordance with in-state laws. If you’re looking into using CBD products in the Garden State, it’s critical that you familiarize yourself with the state’s cannabis laws first.
According to national law, the possession of marijuana is still unlawful, but states have the liberty to decide how they would like to specifically enact the Controlled Substance Act. Now CBD oil can be derived from two sources: marijuana and hemp. If the oil is derived from marijuana, it’s likely to contain high levels of THC. That said, the possession of CBD cannabis oil is treated the same way as possessing marijuana. However, NJ state laws indicate that a resident registered in the state’s Medical Marijuana Program is protected against arrest, prosecution, and penalties under the Compassionate Use Medical Marijuana Act or CUMMA. The law creates an affirmative defense for those suspected of violating the Comprehensive Drug Reform Act. Essentially, law enforcement in the state has been given instructions about this matter, making NJ one of the most forward-thinking states when it comes to cannabis use. As per legislation brief, if a person is found in possession of marijuana but claims to be a registered medical marijuana patient or a caregiver of a patient, an officer cannot seize paraphernalia of whatever form, make an arrest, or file criminal charges.
However, an officer may be allowed to do so only if he or she has articulable reasons to believe that CUMMA is not applicable to a suspect. Specific procedures and processes have been prepared by lawmakers in order to qualify for the medical marijuana program, so if any resident is interested, he or must first comply in order to legally possess and use the substance. As for CBD hemp oil, which is a non-psychoactive product, its use is governed by federal law under the Farm Bill, which indicates that all products derived from hemp are legal unless in-state laws say otherwise.
