On July 20th 2020, an amendment to the National Defense Authorization Act (“NDAA”) was passed which will allow military service members to use cannabidiol (“CBD”) and other hemp-derived products.
This change can be viewed as a response to the Department of Defense’s (“DOD”) February 2020 policy which barred all service members from using hemp products of any variety, despite the legalization of hemp products in 2018.
This amendment is great news for the many military service members who have found relief by using CBD products. As Rebecca Spence writes in JD Supra,
"Veterans and those who are still active duty have found great relief from CBD, allowing them an opportunity to heal while also giving them a natural alternative to narcotic painkillers. Banning these products is disrespectful and forces military service members into deciding between no treatment at all and treatment with opiates or other narcotics."
As more people are finding the value of hemp products, Taurigum is proud to offer a range of CBD products to fit your needs. Shop our selection today!
