Wyoming Cannabis History
Marijuana is illegal for both recreational and medical use in Wyoming, with the exception of hemp-derived CBD oil containing less than 0.3% THC by weight. CBD oil was legalized in 2019 with the passage of House Bill 171, which removed hemp and hemp-derived CBD products from the Wyoming Controlled Substances Act.
Wyoming Child-Resistant Packaging Rules
While Wyoming currently has no marijuana-specific child-resistant packaging laws, CBD products are subject to the standards outlined in the Food, Drug and Cosmetic Act (“FDCA”) and the Poison Prevention Packaging Act.
Under the FDCA, the labels of any product sold in the United States, including child-resistant CBD and marijuana packaging, must contain four basic elements:
- 1. An identity statement saying what the product is
- 2. The net weight
- 3. An ingredient list, with hemp, CBD, and THC clearly identified
- 4. The name and address of the manufacturer/distributor.
Child-resistant packaging rules apply to the CBD products currently available as a way to safeguard children while making medicines accessible to the elderly, much like prescription medicines.
Consumer should additionally expect the following information present on the labels of all CBD products:
- Amount of active CBD per serving.
- Supplement Fact panel, including other ingredients.
- Net weight.
- Manufacturer or distributor name.
- Suggested use.
- Full-spectrum, broad-spectrum, or isolate.
- Batch or date code.
