On the 30th of May 2019 Nebraska signed into law legislation which allows for industrial hemp derived CBD. While industrial hemp derived CBD is legal, it must be from Nebraska state regulated sources. Non-regulated sources of CBD are considered illegal and considered possession of a controlled substance.

There are also restrictions on hemp derived CBD as it may not be inhaled or smoked.
