The short answer is, yes.
Before we dive into the detail, here are some of the quick takeaways:
CBN can be lawfully produced and extracted from hemp under the 2018 Farm Bill CBN products are legal in the US at a federal level, as they don’t have a high concentration of Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC).
At this time, CBN is not on the list of scheduled controlled substances in the United States.
Now that you understand it on a high level, let’s dive into the details.
The legality of CBN (Cannabinol) in the US
CBN or Cannabinol, it’s full name, derived from hemp has been legal in the United States since the passing of the Agricultural Improvement Act of 2018, also known as the “2018 Farm Bill”. The act removed hemp from the Controlled Substance Act’s (“CSA”) definition of cannabis. Under the 2018 Farm Bill, hemp is defined as “the plant Cannabis sativa L. and any part of that plant, including seeds thereof and all derivatives, extracts, cannabinoids… with a delta-9 THC concentration of not more than 0.3 percent on a dry weight basis” 7 U.S.C. §1639o.
In short: This means that because CBN like CBD are naturally occurring cannabinoids in the hemp plant they are federally legal in the United States.

Can CBN Be Illegal?
The one caveat is that because CBN can also be found in the cannabis plant as it is defined in the CSA, CBN derived from cannabis plants containing greater than 0.3% percent delta 9 THC is not yet legal at the federal level as it is at many of the state’s levels.
This is why you will find CBN for sale at both the grocery store and your local dispensary.
