Governor DeWine signed Senate Bill 57 into law today at the Ohio State Fair and because the bill includes an emergency clause, effective immediately sales of products derived from hemp, include hemp CBD products, are legal in Ohio.
In keeping with the federal definitions, the law defines “cannabidiol” as the cannabidiol compound, containing a delta-9 tetrahydrocannabinol [THC] concentration of not more than three-tenths per cent, derived from hemp.

“Hemp product” means any product, containing a delta- 9 tetrahydrocannabinol concentration of not more than three-tenths per cent, that is made with hemp. “Hemp product” includes cosmetics, personal care products, dietary supplements or food intended for animal or human consumption, cloth, cordage, fiber, fuel, paint, paper, particleboard, and any other product containing one or more cannabinoids derived from hemp, including cannabidiol.
