U.N. Blocked by the 10th Amendment

U.N. Blocked by the 10th Amendment

State by state is the way to progress this, same with CBD in foods. States are the “laboratories of democracy.” Force USDA’s hand, one state at a time. That Constitutional novelty, the Tenth Amendment, is what allows states to legalize CBD foods and hemp fodder just like it does all the regulated marijuana states. It’s … Continue reading "U.N.

KY Reduces Max THC in Hemp by up to 25%

KY Reduces Max THC in Hemp by up to 25%

The Kentucky Department of Agriculture is reducing the THC limit for 2022 by as much as 25%. That’s extra-legislative: Congressional intent was 0.3%, one decimal place. That covers up to 0.39999%. KDA’s blame of Congress for the extra decimal place is shameful.

Time for a Hemp Food Association?

Hemp Food vs Medibles

Hemp Food vs Medibles

One issue Hemp Food companies have to manage is the consumer perception that these drug-free foods will get them high, or make them fail a drug test. Part of the reason for that, one that was easier to address in the ‘90s, is the rise in the regulated market for “medibles,” or marijuana edibles. The … Continue reading "Hemp Food vs Medibles" ...
