As of right this second, the sale of CBD oils is strictly prohibited in the state of Louisiana. That's right, in our state it's currently illegal to sale or use CBD-based oils. However, that could all be changing soon, as the legislation of CBD oil is coming to the Louisiana Senate.

Louisiana farmers have almost unanimously united in this bill passing, after the powers at be legalized the growth of it in the most recent farm bill. Naturally, farmers love the idea because the hemp is easy to grow and is a natural fit for our Louisiana resources.

Our own Representative, Sam Jenkings of Shreveport, supports the legalization saying, "It’s time for Louisiana to jump in and compete."

What do you think Louisiana? Is it time for us to compete in this marketplace? Farmers say yes, many consumers say yes, what do you say?
