CBD & Hemp

Hauling hemp can be risky for drivers even though it’s now legal to grow it, process it and sell it — which is why some states are including provisions in their hemp plans to try and ease the pain, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s (USDA) top legal official.

It’s all about hemp education this year at the 2020 World Ag Expo.

Idaho is one of only three states that does not allow the cultivation of hemp, despite the federal government making it legal to grow industrial hemp in the 2018 Farm Bill.

The supermarket giant started carrying CBD products last year. Now, it’s pressing the federal government on the issue.

The USDA report attempts to draw conclusions about the legal, logistical and economic challenges that might arise as US farmers return to a crop that hasn’t been grown in the country for generations.

The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) said on Thursday that it will not be amending its proposed rules for hemp to increase the allowable THC limit, arguing that only Congress can change that specific policy.
