The state of Georgia legalized low-THC, high-CBD medical cannabis in 2015, through a Legislative bill, House Bill 1, but failed to provide a dispensing system for access. In 2019, Georgia passed House Bill 324, which provided a legal way for qualifying patients in the state to access and utilize low-THC, high-CBD medical cannabis as a form of treatment for their ailment. Access to medical cannabis is through state licensed businesses that are allowed to grow, manufacture and sell low-THC, high-CBD medical cannabis.
