In November 2019, the Wisconsin Legislature enacted new legislation updating its statutes relating to Cannabidiol (CBD) and hemp. 2019 Wisconsin Act 68 legalized CBD oil and hemp statewide creating new questions for employers and their workforce. As a result, many employers are currently reviewing their policies and procedures to determine best practices in addressing CBD oil in the workplace. We addressed the new legislation and the impact on employers including:
- the significance of various THC levels
- the use or nonuse of lawful products discrimination statute
- ramifications of CBD oil in the workplace
- employee drug tests and common questions/concerns.
The team was joined by special guest speakers Stacy Peterson, President and CEO, and Sonja Hintz, RN and Health Educator of Connoils, LLC – a leading international supplement maker and distributor of bulk oil ingredients. Stacy and Sonja are experts in the CBD industry and led an in-depth discussion on the health benefits, use, and science behind CBD oil.
