North Carolina has a low-THC medical CBD program, and those living on Tribal lands may qualify for medical cannabis.
Cannabis is illegal in North Carolina for any usage, whether medical or not. Possession of 0.5 ounces (a half-ounce) or less is decriminalized. There was a failed attempt to legalize medical marijuana in 2014, but it failed. In 2015, Governor Pat McCrory signed into law HB 766, allowing those with intractable epilepsy to use CBD oil. In 2017, North Carolina legalized hemp.
North Carolina has a Low-THC Medical CBD program. Cannabis extracts containing less than nine-tenths of one percent THC and at least five percent CBD by weight may be recommended for those with intractable epilepsy. Under the NC Compassionate Care Act (SB 711), those suffering from chronic conditions like cancer, Crohn’s disease, or multiple sclerosis (MS) may also qualify.
Medical cannabis is legal on tribal lands, in particular Cherokee land. To quote from NORML:
"Medical cannabis is now legal in part of western North Carolina, but only on Cherokee land, according to a statement from the Eastern Band of Cherokee Indians. On August 5, a local ordinance was approved by The Eastern Band of Cherokee Indians Tribal Council, legalizing medical cannabis within the Qualla Boundary."
