Highlights of Virginia’s 2019 Hemp Season

Hemp growers in the Southeast region of the U.S, such as Virginia, are faced with a dry and warm growing season, which is riddled with diseases and pest pressure. Many farmers in these regions grew hemp for CBD production and flower for smoking. However, this season, their crops, especially the flowers, were attacked by corn eating worms. To contribute to the research in the growing hemp industry, the state of Virginia, which is looking to revitalize the tobacco-growing region, donated $400,000 for a state testing lab for crops including hemp. Last week, researchers from Virginia Tech received a $500,000 grant…

California to Bring its Hemp Law in Line With Federal Law

Ever since the Farm Bill of 2018 legalized the cultivation of industrial hemp, the industry has quite literally exploded. Demand for CBD products has been tremendous, and a plethora of sellers have flooded the market to cater to it. Sadly, legislators have been slow to come up with regulations to rein in and regulate the industry. This has turned the CBD industry into a sort of Wild West, where sellers can make wild, unsubstantiated claims about their products, and the quality and prices aren't standardized. However, some states have started taking action to regulate the industry. California Governor Gavin Newsom…

West Virginia Hemp Farmers Unhappy With THC Testing Protocol

Famers in West Virginia are complaining that their hemp crop is undergoing stricter testing than in other states. This stringent testing of THC is putting them at a disadvantage as it costs them huge profits in an industry that is multiplying rapidly. West Virginia growers are forced to cut their cop before maturity because, unlike other states, the Department of Agriculture in West Virginia are testing total THC instead of delta-9 THC (tetrahydrocannabinol). Hemp is a product of the marijuana plant, but unlike marijuana, which has high levels of THC, hemp has lower levels of THC. Thus, people who consume…

Alabama Starts Receiving Hemp Cultivation Applications

CBD is, without a doubt, one of the most versatile medical treatments of the century. It has slowly been gaining approval among the public, who after experiencing the numerous benefits associated with the cannabinoid, have been quick to share and spread awareness on the compound. For a long time, the industry remained undeveloped primarily because CBD was classified as a Schedule 1 controlled substance, and it was illegal to handle it in any form. Not to mention the stigma that came with it due to its association with cannabis and its primary psychoactive agent, THC. The Farm Bill of 2018…
