Cali Legalizes CBD… Or Did It?

California passed AB45 recently, which is being heralded as legalizing CBD in that state. But did it really? It banned the products of “chemical synthesis;” that’s a vague term, would it include decarboxylation? Delta-8? CBD > THC using an acid? CBD > THC > CBN? Although it left the door open to hemp smokables, California … Continue reading "Cali Legalizes CBD… Or Did It?"...

CBG for Pain

I’m finding Cannabigerol (CBG) a potent pain med, at least for dental and jaw pain. I’m guessing my dose was around 100-200 mg. Like with CBD, if and how CBG works for pain will depend on the reason for the pain. I’ve noticed CBD is better for pain from inflammation than other causes, perhaps it’s … Continue reading "CBG for Pain"...

Here are some persistent myths regarding hemp: Hempcrete requires hemp (most of the millions of tons of ag waste burned every year can be used). Ricehouse even makes it out of waste rice hulls.

USDA $ For Hemp Marketing Abroad

I did the USDA MAP program around 1999 for a few years, through WUSATA. Displayed hemp foods at the London Consulate for local buyers they assembled.

CBD Hempseed Oil Not a Novel Food

CBD Hempseed Oil Not a Novel Food

“Sativa” and “Indica” Are So 18th Century

Hemp Check-off Program: A Very Bad Idea at a Very Bad Time

Some are talking about Check-off programs for hemp. That one of the two groups has a long history of hurting hemp, killing one market after another, is not surprising when you realize a Check-off program is unconstitutional, hurts U.S. farmers, and encourages imported hemp products. It’s also unfair as some segments will underwrite marketing for … Continue reading "Hemp Check-off Program: A Very Bad Idea at a Very Bad Time"...

CBD Manufacturer Says “Lack of Government Regulation” Put Him Out of Business

What sounds at first like a Libertarian Paradise (lack of government regs) is being blamed for yet another CBD company going under.

The 10A Solution to FDA’s CBD Mess

While FDA sits on its hands regarding CBD, states are not. At least three have legislatively taken the bull by the horns and expressly legalized the production and sale of CBD.

Existing law such as the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act (FFDCA) requires a … Continue reading "The 10A Solution to FDA’s CBD Mess"...

USA Set Hemp Food THC Standard at 3,000 ppm

Canada’s 10 ppm should not be EIHA’s goal, rather USA’s 3,000 should be. If the drug-test-crazy, THC-phobic USA can function without problem despite THC levels in foods 300 times higher, then that should be the limit.
