Marijuana, Hemp, CBD Oil: Which of These Is Legal and Where?

Despite all the breakthrough in medicine and numerous scientific evidence that cannabis has vast potential in curing various disease, the US laws are still baffling and do not allow all cannabis-related products to be produced or consumed freely. Bearing in mind the recent discussions, approvals and prohibitions, it is no wonder one can get rather confused about what is legal and what can get you in jail. For this reason, let’s demystify the rules about marijuana, hemp, and CBD oil.

The Art of Branding & Identity

The rise of social media has taught us that good storytelling and branding can go a long way to project success for any brand. They’re a gateway to customer conversations that when well done, can lead down a rabbit hole of discovery for any consumer to journey across your brand. Everyone loves an underdog, and in Cannabis more than any category represents an emerging class of new brands, new products and new experiences for consumers to listen, learn, sample and engage with. Writes our correspondent Glenn Johnson.

Further Consideration of the STATES Act

Further Consideration of the STATES Act

Numerous attempts to introduce legislation to relax the provisions that placed cannabis on Schedule I of the Controlled Substances Act [“CSA”] have been made beginning in 1981[i]. Similar bills have been introduced perennially since then, most recently by Rep. H. Morgan Griffith [R-VA] (H.R. 4498). All have died in committee. In 2011, Reps. Ron Paul (R-TX) and Barney Frank (D-MA) introduced a bill to remove marijuana from the schedules entirely (“de-scheduling”). This Bill also died in committee[ii].

NJ Leaders Agree to Compromise on Cannabis Tax

The Garden State may have a new crop on the market in the near future. The prospects for legalizing cannabis for recreational adult use appear to once again be on the rise. After months of back and forth between Governor Phil Murphy and the State Legislature, a compromise solution appears to be in the works. Reports suggest details, including tax rates and regulatory schemes, finally have been ironed out. Many observers are optimistic about legislative action later this year.

Pennsylvania Medical Marijuana: Open Fields of Pennsylvania Hemp

The 2018 U.S. Farm Bill has opened the gates to industrial hemp farming. Hemp, a crop that has been banned in the United States since 1937, now may be legally grown. While the most popular product of hemp − oils containing cannabidiol (CBD) and other naturally occurring non-psychoactive cannabinoids − are still subject to conflicting federal and state regulations, the plant itself may be grown across the United States.
