If your US trademark application has received a CSA refusal, it means the examiner considers your product to contain substances not legal in the whole US commerce, such as CBD.

If you think the examiner has made a mistake and your product does qualify to be sold across all states, you can overcome this refusal by proving the goods contain less than a lawful amount of THC and meet the statutory definition of "hemp".
