Frequently Asked Questions

What are the hemp laws in the US?

So it’s not just the stock and the seed anymore. These laws also make it so, that the USDA (US Department of Agriculture) is in charge of the hemp laws on a federal level. This Act allows for states, local and tribal governments to create their own hemp laws. Different from the federal law as long as the USDA approves of them.

What is non-hemp cannabis and is it legal?

Any cannabis plant that contains more than 0.3 percent THC would be considered non-hemp cannabis—or marijuana—under federal law and would thus face no legal protection under this new legislation. Second, there will be significant, shared state-federal regulatory power over hemp cultivation and production.

What does the 2018 Farm Bill mean for the hemp industry?

The 2018 Farm Bill permits the interstate transfer of hemp products for commercial or other purposes, and it requires compliance with a state, tribal, or U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) plan for hemp production.

What does the farm bill mean for state-legal cannabis programs?

The Farm Bill has no effect on state-legal cannabis programs. Over the past 22 years, 33 states have legalized cannabis for medical purposes, and over the past six years, 10 states have legalized cannabis for adult use. Every one of those programs is illegal under federal law, with no exceptions, and the Farm Bill does nothing to change that.
