KNOWLEDGE IS POWER
INFORMATION IS LIBERATING. EDUCATION IS THE PREMISE OF PROGRESS
You might find differing opinions online, but based on the information we have provided below, and much more, the opinion of VIVA CBD is that we exist within the language of the law.
“Industrial Hemp” is legally designated in a unique, and explicitly-defined category, utterly distinct from marijuana, and nowhere to be found on the CSA. We have provided lab tests and licensure which show that our products accord with the laws and regulations of the land, as they are written.
We do not ask that you take our word for it. Dig deeper. Decide for yourself.
Controlled Substances Act
The Controlled Substances Act (CSA) is the statute establishing federal U.S. drug policy under which the manufacture, importation, possession, use, and distribution of certain substances is regulated. It was passed by the 91st United States Congress as Title II of the Comprehensive Drug Abuse Prevention and Control Act of 1970.
- The Act also served as the national implementing legislation for the Single Convention on Narcotic Drugs. The legislation created five Schedules (classifications), with varying qualifications for a substance to be included in each.
- Two federal agencies, the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) and the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), determine which substances are added to or removed from the various schedules.
- Classification decisions are required to be made on criteria including potential for abuse (an undefined term), currently accepted medical use in treatment in the United States, and international treaties.
