Hemp Legal

President Donald Trump just made hemp legal in all 50 states.

The 2018 Farm Bill Trump signed earlier this month allows for hemp cultivation and the transfer of hemp-derived products across state lines for commercial or other purposes.

Now that Jeff Sessions, one of the Trump Administration’s biggest opponents to legal marijuana, is no longer the U.S. Attorney General, the Feds have removed all restrictions on the sale, transport, or possession of hemp-derived products produced in a manner consistent with the law.

What is Hemp?

Hemp and marijuana are both Cannabis plants, but hemp has less than 0.3% of THC, the psychoactive chemical that gets folks high. Marijuana has between 5-35% of THC.

Hemp has many industrial uses and can be found in food, clothing, body care products and even automobiles. It’s most important use for now is the extraction of CBD oil – but stay tuned.  Hemp is so versatile it alone will create several new industries.

What’s Next?

Look for job opportunities to expand exponentially in the CBD market – cosmetics, foodstuffs, drinks, supplements, pharmaceuticals- the list is endless.

It’s going to take a little time to grow some hemp and prove certain uses but you can bet it will cause great disruption in current markets for bio fuel and animal feed just to name a couple.
