Avoid Smoking Hemp Flower in Public
A friendly reminder: although hemp and all of its parts with less than 0.3% THC are legal in the U.S., you should avoid using hemp in public. Hemp flower resembles marijuana, which is illegal in Pennsylvania.
Law enforcement doesn’t have a field test to determine the difference between marijuana and hemp smokables. So, if you get reported for using hemp smokables, it’s likely for law enforcement to enforce marijuana laws on you.
Pennsylvania Industrial Hemp Program
The state is in the process of creating a new hemp program. Still, it allows commercial cultivation of industrial hemp by licensed individuals with a valid permit from the PA Department of agriculture.
Previously, the state had set acreage caps, which was lifted in January 2019. Under the new program, there are no limits to the size of plantings covered under a permit. Each year, applicants have to renew their permit.
Products produced from hemp grown in Pennsylvania can be sold both in the state and interstate — as long as the products or substances distributed or sold comply with state and federal laws.
Is CBD Legal in Pennsylvania?
Yes, hemp CBD is legal in Pennsylvania. The Pennsylvania Department of Agriculture “does permit growth of hemp for the purpose of producing CBD,” but the permit holder’s responsibility is to “ensure that any CBD extraction or the production of CBD-containing substances complies with all laws and regulations.” 
Furthermore, hemp-derived CBD is legal in Pennsylvania as long as the CBD extraction or CBD products comply with federal regulations. The Pennsylvania Department of Agriculture explains that the FDA does not approve the sale of food (including animal feed) that contains THC or CBD.
The Pennsylvania Senate committee has been making efforts to regulate industrial hemp as a food additive, but we are left to see how this will unfold. In conclusion, CBD is legal in Pennsylvania if not marketed as a dietary supplement or added in food.
