Best CBD Oils in Alabama

Heather Ryerson Find CBD

CBD has taken a while to get to Alabama, where the region has extremely strict cannabis laws in place. Even after the passage of the farm bill in 2018, there was a lot of conflicting information between state health officials and the attorney general’s office over the hemp derived compound. It appears though, that law enforcement and the public have become more open-minded about cannabidiol and its many benefits.

While marijuana remains illegal in Alabama with very few exceptions, hope is on the horizon. Gov. Kay Ivey signed a bill into law in June of 2019 that will allow for a commission to study how best to implement a medical marijuana program.

In the meantime, hemp derived CBD has finally reached into the heart of Dixie, and a few retailers have established operations in the state. In this review, we will show you what we have uncovered.

Best Overall: Sunmed 1000 mg Broad Spectrum Tincture by Your CBD Store

They have over 20 brick and mortar locations throughout the state as well as a simple to navigate website for online ordering. While they offer the costliest CBD oil on our list, they are also the most transparent. Third-party lab results are available for all of their Broad Spectrum CBD Tinctures, and they have a wealth of information for users on their websites. As of now, they offer the best overall choice, particularly for local patrons.
