While most US-based companies intend their hemp-derived CBD gummies for individuals who are either 18 and older or 21 and older, there are no federal regulations in place regarding age minimums for purchasing CBD. When purchasing online, any individual can buy CBD. When purchasing in retail stores, it is up to the business if they’d like to enforce an age minimum.
Marijuana-derived CBD gummies require an individual with a valid medical marijuana card or an adult who is 21 and over for purchase based on that state’s medical and/or recreational laws.

In most US states you must be 21 to enter a dispensary for either medical or recreational purchases.
Since most gummies are sold in dispensaries 21 is your answer.
If you have a legitimate medical reason for using CBD, talk to your parents about buying them for you. If your parents aren’t knowledgeable about CBD, do some research online about your specific medical condition and the effectiveness of CBD in dealing with it.
The National Institute of Health (NIH) had a plethora of study abstracts as well as an excellent search engine you can use at their website.
Print your research up and try to educate your parents.

There’s no law against selling 0.3% CBD products, including vaporizer cartridges, to minors, but it up to the business. Most smoke shops require that you be 21 or older to buy CBD products.
There is no restriction online, though
If the CBD gummy product that you are using actually contains CBD, the chances of you getting high are zero. You can take that to the bank. Why? CBD by definition does not contain THC.
Now you may be thinking that CBD and THC both come from the marijuana plant. Don’t both compounds get you high? Well, the reason why CBD is so popular is that you get the benefits of marijuana without getting high.
You don’t have to flunk your drug test. You don’t have to worry about drug residues getting stuck in your hair follicles for a very long time. You don’t have to worry about all that unnecessary drama.
The best is whether you are dealing with anxiety, aches, and pains, inflammation, depression or a long list of other health issues, you may be able to treat or possibly even make those symptoms go away with CBD.
Now, the good news is that CBD can now come in gummy form. A lot of people have a problem with putting CBD oil or extract under their tongue. Fair enough. That’s why CBD gummies, along with other edibles are all the rage.
But just like any other product containing CBD, you have to be very discriminating. Pay close attention to the actual CBD concentration. Research where the company providing the gummy product sourced the CBD.
Is it made from industrial hemp? Are they using all-natural extraction processes? These are the details that you need to pay close attention to so you can rest assure that you are picking the very best CBD gummies you can afford.
The benchmark is the CBD gummy at the very least should not get you high.
In California, at present, the only surety one has per legally purchasing CBD-only oil, pills (powder), or vapes — that is, no “full-spectrum” CBD products which contain THC — is to be 18 or over, have proper government-issued I.D., and purchase such a product at a registered dispensary.
Does this mean that there are no storefront business in California selling CBD products (oils, lotions, infused beverages, etc.) to anyone of any age who desires to buy such a product? Apparently not. But that appears to be a spotty, location-specific situation, engendered by vague, shifting, and largely unadjudicated laws, conflicts between State and Federal cannabis/hemp laws and product classification policies, local sales ordinances, and discrepancies per enforcement at all levels: Federal, state, and local.
Again, in California (versus say Colorado) it appears that only those over 18 can legally buy CBD-only products, and then only from registered dispensaries.

CBD products that are marketed to the public, you do not need a prescription to purchase them. There is not a federal guideline for legal age to purchase CBD products. Some local municipalities and states have set their own guidelines so you should check locally and see what your city and state have to say about this. There is nothing that states that a parent cannot give the products to children, however. In fact, there are products specifically marketed for children, as well as CBD for pets.
There is relatively little regulation on the CBD online industry yet so ‘do you have to be 18 to buy CBD?’ is a question that can’t be answered across the board. For now, it depends upon where you live and what your local laws are.
The products are streaming onto the market right now as if hemp plants exploded and dropped products everywhere the pieces fell. The industry is pumping different types of products, with flavors and variations in the methods for onboarding the CBD, which can include everything from sprays, lotions, and sublingual drops. In fact, drinks, coffees, gummy candies, and even flavored vaping oils with CBD are now available. There’s no limit on the way that CBD can be taken.
The most important regulations are in the percentage of THC that was part of the compromise to legalize CBD in the first place. This happened in 2017. With few exceptions, CBD is legal everywhere. It’s a good idea to check your local city and state regulations. It may be in your best interest to keep your use of CBD oil private, depending on where you live and how conservative your school district is. There are many people who simply have no earthly idea of any facts, regarding CBD.
Absolutely. I would even say that a full-spectrum CBD/THC or THC vape pen might be effective and is unlikely to do harm. I say this as a person with ADD and anxiety who finds high-THC marijuana very effective for my symptoms. It is quite possible to take doses that are of medical effect only, not intoxicating. Certainly try CBD first, but if it isn’t enough by itself, a whole cannabis medicine might be, and is very unlikely to do him any harm. Many children use CBD, THC, and whole plant cannabis medicines for a wide range of illnesses, and there is no evidence so far that any of them have suffered any harm because of it. CBD in particular is extremely innocuous – it’s not even intoxicating, at any dose.
I do want to note, though, that if you have the option, a whole-cannabis CBD product is better than a pure-CBD product, or one derived from hemp. The entourage effect is very important for cannabis as a medicine, and isolated single cannabinoids never work as well as they do in context. High CBD/no THC medical cannabis strains are available on the market, as are a number of products made from them, including vapes.
I have a pretty different opinion about this stuff than kids my age, I’m in my teens. Don’t let your son get into that stuff. Currently, there isn’t enough long term research about vaping for there to be any absolutley conclusive evidence that it is completely safe. Put simply, people haven’t lived out their lives yet vaping to see it’s long term effects. We are kind of in the same era of early cigarette smoking days where people are simply unaware of what could be dangerous with vaping. There are many studies that show carcinogenic chemicals in the filters and batteries that vape pens smoke (water vapor) through. Some people have had collapsed lungs due to vaping, although those were with nicotine. Even the idea of vaping poses a risk of other types of vaping. All it takes is for one of his friends to convince him to try their flavored vape juice or try their “dab pen” (basically vape weed) for him to start getting into seriously harmful things. Could non nicotine vaping be harmless in the long term? Maybe. Is that a risk you are willing to pose upon your son? That’s for you to decide.
The most common ways to consume CBD/Hemp are through vaping, digestion or sublingual. That said, our CBD gummies are easy to use, long lasting and taste great, but you need to be at least 18 years old to buy cbd products!
After the ingestion of gummies, they will typically take 30-45 minutes to take effect.
I am now a strong proponent of Gummies for the follow reasons:
– Anti-inflammatory properties that relieve pain
– Experience less anxiety
– Enjoy a better night sleep
When you buy our Gummies at https://smile-cbd.co.uk/product-category/cbd-gummies , rest assured that our brand contains all cannabinoids except THC, whereas most other brands are Isolates (CBD only).
Also, look at the ingredients and how they apply the CBD onto the Gummies. Unfortunately, most just spray it on the outside of imported Chinese gummies, rather than including it as part of the actual manufacturing process, that achieves the highest results. Spray on versions often lose the majority of the active ingredient prior to consumption.
Hi! I sell CBD products, and might be able to answer this more effectively.
Technically, vaping underage is considered illegal.
CBD oils has a lot of benefits for those with anxiety, chronic pain, depression, and more.
You do have to be 18+ to purchase CBD products though. I would say stay away, but you can make that decision. There are other CBD products such as gummies, tinctures, pills, and creams that are available. I know chiropractors tell minors to use CBD for pain, so I don’t see why not. I just wouldn’t vape it.
As to the comment made by A. Cabel, vaping is not nearly as harmful as smoking a cigarette. E-liquid contains four ingredients compared to smoking which has thousands of chemicals involved.
There is some evidence now that vapes can hurt your lungs.

When you get cravings, think of them as coming from an invader who wants the cigarettes – so it isn’t you having the craving – it is the invader, who only survives on cigarettes. Not giving them the cigarettes makes them leave – the more they complain and you tell them no, the stronger you become.
A friend of mine quit after years of smoking and he said thinking that way helped the most.
Also, keep in mind that if you need help quitting it is better to tell your Mom and get her help than to go on smoking. Yes, she will be mad at you but she will still help you and be happier you asked for help than not succeeding in getting your life and health back.
Smoking costs a lot of money and it is an economic disaster, as well as a disaster for your health. You need to stay well oxygenated as you are growing. Cigarettes steal your oxygen.
I am sure you can do it.
