Wyoming Legislature rejects CBD decriminalization

    Wyoming’s Legislature has rejected a bill that would have allowed possession of hemp extract for medical purposes.

    The Wyoming House Judiciary Committee voted not to advance the bill on Tuesday, which would have decriminalized cannabidiol, or CBD. CBD is a non-psychoactive component of marijuana.

    According to the Casper Star-Tribune, 17 states have legalized products that contain CBD compounds. Products are advertised to treat a range of conditions from pain to seizures. These products have also gained traction overseas, such as in the UK, with companies such as CBD Nutra offering a wide variety of legal CBD products.


    Committee members voted 4-4 against the bill, and addressed concerns that the United States Government continues to “classify marijuana as a top-tier controlled substance.”

    A similar bill failed in the Wyoming Legislature last year.
