Hemp’s benefits and uses are well documented as is the fact that industrial hemp is not a psychoactive plant.
Despite the 2014 Farm Act Bill which made it possible for hemp to be sold within the United States, hemp has suffered from a patchwork of state and federal laws. Some states (like Elixinol’s home state of Colorado) have made it possible to grow hemp, but due to the oddities of classification, hemp remained on the DEA’s list of schedule 1 drugs, making it a controlled substance, even as the FDA approved CBD hemp oil as a dietary supplement.
Finally, hemp’s fate could now once and for all change for the better.
HEMP FARM ACT BILL OF 2018
New legislation in Congress, The Hemp Farm Act Bill of 2018 (Senate Bill 2667 and House Bill 5485) will permanently remove industrial hemp as a controlled substance. Not only do these bills clear-up legal confusion about hemp, both bills support farmers and create a path for good-paying American jobs and real economic activity.
CHANGE EVERYONE CAN AGREE ON
These bills are receiving rare bipartisan support and if passed will change the lives of people as different as families with small children or senior citizens needing cannabinoid therapy, farmers in states where hemp state laws don’t already exist, and even athletes who use CBD oil for temporary relief of inflammation. These are incredibly important legislative bills for all Americans. Citizens throughout the United States are voicing their support for this historic legislation, won’t you join them?
