As we mentioned before, CBD can be expensive. When you purchase directly with the supplier online, they able to extend discounts or bulk purchase deals to you. But, if you don’t like the price you see, the next supplier is only a click or two away.
Merely taking the time to do a short background check on your CBD supplier can save you a lot of money and hassle later on.
A Brief History of Marijuana Laws in Washington
Keep in mind that the Federal Government still lists marijuana on its list of controlled substances. This means that if you’re caught in possession of or using marijuana on federal land, the charges faced will be under federal law. This includes places such as national parks or forests.
CBD is legal to purchase and consume in the state of Washington. However, the laws change slightly depending on how your CBD was produced.
CBD is no exception. Many of your favorite marijuana shops will have CBD ready to order over the counter. This is an excellent way to get the CBD products you need in Washington.
Pink Lemonade Pioneer Squares are beloved by all of our staff, but none say it better than Tyler:
For those of us that are patient, edibles can be the way to go when trying to get high. Though they can take an hour or two to kick in, you get a great body high that lasts much longer than your high had you have smoked. Plus you get a snack in addition to getting high!
For the best of both worlds, smoke a joint while you wait for your edibles to kick in!

Journeyman is here to keep it simple, keep it tasty, keep it away from kids and keep on truckin’!
This super delectable caramel is a perfect sweet treat which will have you flying high. American Baked Co. only produces these caramels in a ten pack, so you can stock up for the long haul. Goes great with a cup of coffee!
You can feel the jittery uplift with the caramels. They are so tasty! Well paired with apple pie 🙂 LOVE LOVE LOVE the gooey consistency, and ABC does it well. These don’t taste overly maple or bourbony; they are the perfect balance of flavor. —Hashtag Fremont budtender
A nice spike of tartness from the lemonade hits initially, and as a southerner myself, I can dig it. The sour candied exterior melts away in your mouth while the jelly in the center creates a sick music festival of taste buds buzzing in its place. The lemonade tartness remains in the background, dialed down, with hints on the pink-sugary sweetness that cuts some flavor layers into a single nibble. I consider this a nice glass of chill lemonade on a summer’s day, in a bite sized form that could use some room temperature or colder temperatures to stay nice and square. I never tried them in the fridge, regrettably, as the quantity reduced faster than I had anticipated. They were delicious. The high was a slow elevation into a nice body buzz; a willingness to sit in comfy chairs was a hazard, as that could lock someone in for a few minutes upwards to a few hours, given the means. Coats the day in a nice sugary wrapping, similar to the sourness that the slice was dipped in, a nice sensation throughout the body, a hum, as if one was in syncopation with the rhythm they bopped to. Vegan, Kosher, Gluten Free, a product for all kinds of folks, like you, and like me. —Tyler, Hashtag Redmond assistant manager

The 2018 Farm Bill re-classified hemp as an agricultural commodity, and made its cultivation federally legal. Further, the act removed some forms of cannabis from Schedule 1 status by creating a legal distinction between hemp and marijuana. Hemp is cannabis with less than 0.3% THC, and marijuana refers to cannabis with more than 0.3% THC. This distinction in federal law effectively legalized CBD that is derived from cannabis with less than 0.3% THC, as long as it’s been cultivated according to federal and state regulations.
The 2018 Farm Bill shifted oversight of CBD from the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA). At present, there are no clear regulations regarding CBD labels and packaging.
Although food containing CBD is not permitted to be created or sold in Washington, WSDA-licensed food processors can use other hemp products in foods. These foods include hulled hemp seeds, hemp seed protein powder, and hemp seed oil, provided they comply with all other requirements. Topical products containing CBD are also still available for purchase from retailers.
