Revised interim message regarding CBD and the December 2018 federal Farm Bill: This recent legislation does not affect the status of CBD with regard to dietary supplements. However, any product containing CBD might also contain THC. As a result, Military Service Members should avoid using any product with CBD (including topical, vaping, and oral products), as it could contain THC and result in a positive drug test. When we have more information, we will post an updated version of our CBD article.

Note: ALNAV 057/19 states, “Sailors and Marines are prohibited from knowingly using products made or derived from hemp (as defined in 7 U.S.C. 1639o), including cannabidiol (CBD), regardless of the products THC concentration, claimed or actual, and regardless of whether such product may lawfully be bought, sold, and used under the law applicable to civilians. Use means to inject, ingest, inhale, or otherwise introduce into the human body.”
