Recently, a hemp bill was signed into law to help people with epilepsy by Governor Pat McCrory.
As a result, people in North Carolina that suffered from epilepsy were officially able to use hemp extracts as of August 1st. This is an oil that cannot get you high.
The initial bill needed neurologists to undergo a study if CBD oil was to be offered.
The new bill, however, removed the need for that study because doctors were not trying to offer or recommend the CBD oil.
Many families in North Carolina migrated to Colorado specifically for CBD oil since it is legal there.
Many of these families say that the CBD oil has been very helpful with their children’s intractable epilepsy; always something good to hear.
For instance, Liz Gorman, a mother, moved from North Carolina to Colorado Springs so that the hemp extract may be used to help Maddie – her daughter.
For some time now, Gorman has been rallying the North Carolina State Legislature to pass the new CBD bill that was passed into law by McCrory. Now, many concerns are being raised over how families will be able to obtain the CBD oil.
“It’s illegal federally, at the moment, to travel with it. But there are some companies that are shipping it and have been doing so for a little bit. There are also people who supply it from South Carolina. South Carolina’s bill allows for the cultivation as well,” is what Gorman said. “It’s going to be wonderful for these children that are in Colorado now to be able to come back home.”
The bill was passed in the Senate 47-0. In the House of Representatives, the bill passed 112-2.
