CBD & Hemp

The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) is officially accepting public comments on its proposed regulations for hemp.

For one month, Maine hemp farmers had the state's CBD-infused food market to themselves, but a law change has reopened it to out-of-state growers.

Farmers across the country will soon be able to grow hemp under the auspices of the U.S. Domestic Hemp Production Program, announced October 29 by the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA).

It's not your imagination, cannabidiol, commonly known as CBD, has seemingly infiltrated every consumer product -- from skin care to gummy candies to vape pens to dog treats.

U.S. Secretary of Agriculture Sonny Perdue announced the interim rule in a press statement on Tuesday.

The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) clarified on Friday that hemp seeds can be imported into the U.S., and that the Justice Department no longer has a role in that process.
