This Week in CBD: December 21, 2018

Yesterday, President Trump signed the 2018 Farm Bill into law. This was a huge victory for the hemp and CBD industries, because the law contains provisions explicitly removing industrial hemp from the controlled substances list and legalizing hemp agriculture nationwide.

For our full analysis of the Farm Bill and what it means for CBD consumers, read this next: What Does the Farm Bill Mean for CBD?

The USDA has already received one state’s proposed regulatory plan for hemp.

Kentucky submitted its plan for federal approval on the same day that the Farm Bill was signed into law. And it comes as no surprise that the Bluegrass State was ready to move forward on this, given that Kentucky Sen. Mitch McConnell was a champion of the bill’s hemp provisions.

The Associated Press reports that the state’s leadership is hoping to “make Kentucky the center of U.S. hemp production and processing.”

A New York truck driver is suing Dixie Elixirs after he lost his job due to a failed drug test.

Douglas Horn says that he purchased a purportedly THC-free hemp oil product from the company, according to Transport Topics. He was careful to only purchase products that contained no THC because he was subject to random drug testing as a condition of his job.

He purchased the CBD oil in September of 2012, and in October, he was fired.

In Austria, companies are giving away their inventories of CBD products after the Minister of Health ordered them to stop sales of CBD foods, beverages, and cosmetics.

CBD sold as hemp flower or as an “essential oil” is still permitted.

In Scottsbluff, Nebraska, a mother and son who opened a CBD shop were arrested the next day  on charges of possession of a controlled substance, a Class I felony.

Notwithstanding the Farm Bill, Nebraska Attorney General Doug Peterson has stated that CBD is a controlled substance under state law.

Anheuser-Busch InBev will partner with Canadian cannabis producer Tilray to research cannabis-infused non-alcoholic beverages. This $100-million deal will study products intended for the Canadian market.
