Industry obviously likes the new rules according to this Hemp Industry Daily report

CBD consumers trying to make sense of terms like “full spectrum” and “broad spectrum” on labels are getting some help in New York state, where new rules for hemp extracts are winning praise from some in the hemp industry who say they could serve as a template for future state or federal action.

Hemp operators are also applauding New York’s first-in-the-nation regulations allowing THC limits to be up to 3% THC for “intermediate sales” between licensed hemp processors in the state. That’s noteworthy, hemp industry supporters say, because it recognizes there is a point in the extraction process where the THC temporarily rises above the allowable limit of 0.3% THC.

“This is important because as the marketplace matures, facilities may specialize in certain aspects of the extraction process such as THC remediation,” said Asa Waldstein, founder of the Supplement Advisory Group.

“This new regulation supports business rather than hinder it by allowing intrastate distribution between licensed extractors. This allows this common practice to come out of the shadows in a legitimate manner, a sign of a maturing industry.”
