Yes it is in fact legal, here is a passage taken directly from the USDA.gov website. "The Agriculture Improvement Act of 2018 (2018 Farm Bill) authorized the production of hemp and removed hemp and hemp seeds from the Drug Enforcement Administration’s (DEA) schedule of Controlled Substances. It also directed the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) to issue regulations and guidance to implement a program to create a consistent regulatory framework around production of hemp throughout the United States. The establishment of hemp as a regulated commodity also paves the way for U.S. hemp farmers to participate in other USDA farm programs."
This is a tricky one, yes and no. If the drug test is specifically testing for the THC molecule then you will be in the clear using a CBD ISOLATE product. Make sure you request lab results to ensure there is in fact 0% THC present. Some CBD products on the market are "full spectrum" and may have trace amounts of THC present (no more than 0.03% by law for "hemp products") but possibly enough to show on a drug screening.
