GREAT FOR BUSINESSThe 2018 Farm Bill, signed into law in December 2018, legalizes the farming and processing of hemp, and the distribution of yet to be disclosed products with CBD as an ingredient in all states. Hemp is no longer a controlled substance The removal of hemp from the Federal list of controlled substances also means that businesses in the hemp industry now have access to banking and financial services, credit cards and payment processors. Restrictions on capital investments have been lifted and products can be traded across state boarders. Insurance is available for growers and hemp can be traded on the futures market. Furthermore, research into hemp and its benefits is more widely allowed. CBD is a non-psychoactive compound However, the FDA retains the authority to regulate products containing CBD and stated they will treat them as they do any other FDA regulated products.
Changes in the legal status of hemp and regulation are good news for investors in businesses involved with the hemp industry. The Hemp Industry Daily projects that the hemp-derived CBD retail market will reach up to $4.8 billion by 2022.
