California Trying to Kill Hemp? (Again)

UPDATE: it appears AB 228/2028 is dead in this session. Expect it to be revived next year. The research institution changes alone would have sunk most research. Adding the Harmonized Tariff Code language included hemp fiber to it, they were likely aiming for imported biomass.

VP Harris Is The “Anointed” One

VP Harris Is The “Anointed” One

If elected, VP candidate Kamala Devi Harris will be one heartbeat away from the Presidency. Despite commuting Roger Stone’s sentence, the Cannabis industry’s inside man in DC, Trump didn’t legalize like many thought he would.

Hemp Check-off Programs Ripe for Abuse, Unconstitutional

“got milk?”Dancing California Raisins. “Pork: the other white meat.” Those are all promotional products of mandatory commodity industry check-off programs, which force farmers to pay ad agencies with a trade association skimming off the top. Many courts have ruled them unconstitutional. Some are pushing such a check-off program for hemp.

Amazon: Largest CBD Retailer or Just One Big Fraud?

Amazon: Largest CBD Retailer or Just One Big Fraud?

Amazon has been a big retailer of CBD as early as 2014, maybe still today with over 9,000 products. Even in Australia I bought CBD from Denver via Amazon.com.au. Yes, their Terms Of Service claims you can’t, but that’s more of a litigation/regulatory CYA. It keeps away the milquetoast sheep, they want brave lions as … Continue reading "Amazon: Largest CBD Retailer or Just One Big Fraud?"...

E.U. CBD: Crisis = Opportunity

CBD in Europe has been handed a unique situation.

E.U. Stalls Novel Food Applications

This appears to torpedo EIHA’s multi-million Euro project to obtain Novel Food (NF) status for some members, and highlights the need for a better approach than blind compliance with every whim of every bureaucrat in Brussels.

R U Paying 40% Tax 4 Flies 2?

Here’s a recent picture of a fly found in an eight of adult-use marijuana bought from a state-regulated dispensary in Los Angeles. Many are under the mistaken impression state-regulated retailers are automatically better than legacy market retailers.

Hawaii Passes Bad Hemp Law. Again.

Of all the states, Hawaii has the most difficulty with hemp and the laws of botany, being at 20° latitude north.
