The Hemp Farming Act of 2018 has been signed, and our CEO @BigMike has special message for you:
.
“For all of us in the cannabis community, today is a day that will go down in history. President Trump signed the 2018 Farm Bill, which includes the Hemp Farming Act of 2018, marking a watershed moment in our campaign to restore cannabis to fully legal status.
.
The Hemp Farming Act legalizes industrial hemp production at the federal level, which means that hemp and all its derived products — including CBD oil — will be treated the same by the USDA as any other legal crop.
.
Today’s signing of the Farm Bill is not only a huge step forward for the cannabis industry but will be a boon to the U.S. economy as a whole. For the first time in close to a century, American farmers will be allowed to legally cultivate industrial hemp, which can be processed for use in literally thousands of products — from textiles, to bodycare products, to health foods and nutraceuticals.
.
Listen, complete cannabis reform is on its way. The Hemp Farming Act is evidence that our elected officials understand the benefits of this incredible plant, and it’s only a matter of time until we see that reflected in our federal laws.
.
Although this bill is not perfect, it’s a step in the right direction.
.
Today, I join you in celebrating this legislation and the victory it represents for our community.”

Cheers,
BigMike
