Alaska Alcohol and Marijuana Control Seizes CBD products from legal marijuana shops.

Alaska Marijuana Control Board raids marijuana shops for CBD products.

UPDATE: 2/10/2017 @ 11:47PM PDT: I just learned that the shops that were raided purchased CBD products from out of state that had no test results and were selling them under the regulated system, which is against the MCB regulations. These were isolated incidents pursued by the enforcement division of MCB. There is NO statewide ban on CBD products in legal marijuana shops. That being said, the fact that health food shops can sell CBD products purchased from out of state but Marijuana shops can’t seems illogical, and again, a double standard.  While this is a relief, there will most certainly be more issues and action with respect to CBD products and how/where you can purchase them legally.


What a bunch of BS. Time to make some phone calls to my contacts up north. I agree that all cannabis-derived CBD products should go through the same scrutiny and testing as everything else, but to single out Marijuana businesses selling CBD, while allowing it to be sold in health food stores is complete bullshit.
