Hemp associations in Italy are asking that the European Union intervene against an amendment that would prohibit the production and trade of hemp derivatives and inflorescences. This includes derivatives with a THC level of less than 0.2%. The amendment was included in a security measure that is currently being debated in the House. The hemp associations believe that the move to add this amendment to the bills may be infringing European rules on the movement of goods and free competition.

DEA Asserts That THCA Doesn’t Conform to Legal Hemp Definition

In the 2018 Farm Bill, hemp is defined as a marijuana product that contains under 0.3% delta-9 THC. Recently, a top official at the U.S. Drug Enforcement Agency (“DEA”) clarified in a new letter that this limit included delta-9 THC as well as THCA, a cannabinoid which changes into delta-9 THC when heated. In the letter, Terrence Boss stated that Congress had directed that the concentration of delta-9 THC be tested using techniques such as post-decarboxylation. Boss is the chief of the drug and chemical evaluation section at the federal agency. He explained that THCA derived from marijuana didn’t need…

House Version of Farm Bill Tweaked, Language Banning Intoxicating Products from Hemp Added

Language banning intoxicating hemp products has been included in the U.S. House of Representatives proposed farm bill. This comes as cannabis farmers in states such as Nevada and California continue to call for a crackdown on intoxicating hemp, which is virtually identical to their own nonintoxicating products. If the bill is approved in the house and in the senate, it would bring an end to the country’s tenure of nationally legal cannabis. This language, which was added by Representative Mary Miller and cosponsored by Representative Doug LaMalfa, rescinds a monumental change approved in the 2018 Farm Bill. The 2018 bill…
