Cannabis Seeds Are Federally Legal – What Now?

The Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) quietly confirmed last year that the seeds of cannabis—because they contain less than .3% THC (cannabis’ psychoactive ingredient) on a dry-weight basis—are in fact, legal, under the 2018 Farm Bill. That means cannabis seeds can be sold openly and without criminal liability. Today, though, few breeders have taken up the administration on that suggestion, as this acknowledgement has created a state-federal disconnect in the regulation of cannabis seeds.

We’ll be breaking this all down during a free, 90-minute webinar on Wednesday, Feb. 1 at 2 p.m. ET.

Joining us are legal and operational experts who have jumped in the murky regulatory waters (including Brothers Grimm Seeds, which battled with the USPS over confiscated seeds and won, as well as MoneyTree Genetics, which opened a retail storefront selling seeds in Chicago).

We’ll also be taking your questions, so don’t miss the opportunity to join us live to better understand one of the most important and complicated industry topics of the year.
