CBD & Hemp

The 2018 Farm Bill will include a provision to legalize industrial hemp, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) and the top Republican and Democrat on the House Agriculture Committee confirmed on Thursday.

The scene was busy, but appropriately laid-back, as thousands attended the second day of the second annual Cannabis & Hemp Trade Show at the Shaw Centre on Saturday.

Now that so many states have passed laws favorable to the marijuana movement, the next big thing to bring a neighborhood back from the brink just might be the increasing number of organizations that work in the industry.

The Garden State will get to start growing a new type of plant. Gov. Phil Murphy signed off on a pilot program Wednesday that gives New Jersey the green light to research and cultivate hemp crops.

The state's Department of Agriculture received 162 applications to grow hemp next year.

Hemp holds a lot of promise as a material for the auto industry. It’s very strong and has a high tensile modulus, which is the ratio of stress to elastic strain in a material.
