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.
Agricultural Act of 2014
The Agricultural Act of 2014 (H.R. 2642; Pub.L. 113–79, also known as the 2014 U.S. Farm Bill), formerly the “Federal Agriculture Reform and Risk Management Act of 2013”, is an act of Congress that authorizes nutrition and agriculture programs in the United States for the years of 2014-2018.
Omnibus Law of 2017
The Consolidated Appropriations Act of 2017 (H.R. 2029, Pub.L. 114–113), also known as the 2017 omnibus spending bill, is the United States appropriations legislation passed during the 114th Congress which provides spending permission to a number of federal agencies for the fiscal year of 2017. The bill authorizes $1.1 trillion in spending, as well as $700 billion in tax breaks. The bill provides funding to the federal government through September 30, 2017.
HIA vs. DEA
BACKGROUND: Appellants’ business activities include importing and distributing sterilized hemp seed and oil and cake derived from hemp seed, and manufacturing and selling food and cosmetic products made from hemp seed and oil. On October 9, 2001, the DEA published what it labeled an “Interpretive Rule” stating that “any product that contains any amount of THC is a schedule I controlled substance” Interpretation of Listing of THC in Schedule I, 66 Fed.Reg. 51530, 51533 (Oct. 9, 2001). This rule would have banned the possession and sale of Appellants’ products. On the same day, the DEA proposed two rules that subsequently became final on publication in the Federal Register on March 21, 2003. Clarification of Listing of THC in Schedule I, 68 Fed.Reg. 14114 (March 21, 2003). These rules (“Final Rules”) are the subject of the instant appeal. DEA-205F amends the DEA’s regulations at 21 C.F.R. § 1308.11(d)(27) so that the listing of THC in Schedule I includes natural as well as synthetic THC. DEA-206F exempts from control non-psychoactive hemp products that contain trace amounts of THC not intended to enter the human body. We stayed enforcement of the Final Rules pending disposition of this appeal.
