Being Successful While Staying Safe

In the fall of 2019, when the 2018 Farm Bill made hemp legal at the federal level, many of us in the hemp industry felt we had made it. This amazing plant could now be used as the “savior” we all know it could be. However, ongoing complexities with other federal agencies such as the USDA and the FDA followed by the emergence of the COVID-19 virus have necessitated a rethinking of the best near-term path for success in the hemp industry.

Industrial Hemp Becomes Federally Legal!

The moment has arrived!

We are so excited to announce that on December 20th, 2018 President Trump signed the 2018 Farm Bill which included the full text of the Hemp Farming Act of 2018 which de-schedules industrial hemp and all its parts from the Controlled Substances Act. Hemp will now be treated as an agricultural crop, farmers will be able to get seeds, crop insurance and open bank accounts. We anticipate 2019 as a significant year for hemp farming and hemp investment opportunities.

More specifics about the impacts of the Farm Bill can be found at this  summary of the Farm Bill drafted by The Hemp Roundtable General Counsel, Jonathan Miller. It’s an exciting time for hemp. We look forward to working with all of our Hemp Supporters as this industry moves forward!
