Currently, in the United States, there is no option for exporting cannabis. We do not have the ability to cross state lines due to Federal prohibition.

Would it be ok to export CBD products from a coastal state to markets overseas?

In regards to exporting commodities, you should know that the regulations from the importing country play a role.  If your CBD product was an extraction from hemp you MAY be able to pass customs. As Diane and others have mentioned, exporting cannabis products is illegal.

This is a grey area that has not been defined. Our position is to consult with an attorney who has experience in the cannabis area and also exporting. Many businesses are producing and shipping "CBD" products, but some are derived from imported hemp and some are manufactured from licensed cannabis manufacturers. Without knowing what state you are producing in, how you are deriving your CBD and where you are wanting to export it to, I cannot give you an answer.

Can you recommend the names of any attorneys in Maryland, California or Washington state, that might be able to address this specific issue?
