Oregon withdraws state hemp plan from USDA

Oregon has withdrawn its proposed hemp plan from the U.S. Department of Agriculture. The Oregon Department of Agriculture sent a letter to U.S. Agriculture Secretary Sonny Perdue last week making the change. The shift comes in response to a federal budget vote giving states more time to operate as pilot projects, through Sept. 30, 2021. President Donald Trump signed the extension legislation in October. ODA submitted its state hemp plan in August to meet the original Oct. 31 deadline required by the 2018 Farm Bill, but the plan was still under USDA review when Oregon regulators asked to withdraw it. Withdrawing the plan does...

Florida projects hemp acreage will grow to half the size of citrus acreage

Florida’s agriculture chief predicts that hemp acreage in the Sunshine State will grow to about half the size of the state’s famed citrus acreage within three to five years.

Already Florida’s hemp acreage is nearly equal to the acreage in Florida of tomatoes, watermelon and snap peas, and double the strawberry production, the Orlando Sentinel reported. “Imagine all the citrus industry here in the state of Florida, about 700,000 acres, and...

USDA will move on hemp regulations in 2021 but FDA will not, MJBizDaily CEO predicts

New leadership at the U.S. Department of Agriculture under the Biden administration will result in the agency “taking another look at looming rules for a nationwide hemp regulatory network,” said Chris Walsh, CEO and president of Hemp Industry Daily and Marijuana Business Daily. Walsh made his annual cannabis business predictions in a virtual presentation Friday at MJBizCon 2020. “We’re hoping that the USDA gives the hemp industry a big win with remediation of ‘hot hemp,” he said. But it’s less likely that the hemp industry will see much movement toward regulating CBD in the coming year, Walsh predicted. He said the U.S. Food...

Hemp industry groups seek feedback on possible checkoff program

Hemp industry groups want to hear from producers and farmers about whether they would support having a national checkoff program to raise money for industry research and promotion. The National Industrial Hemp Council and the Hemp Industries Association launched the survey and are collecting responses until Dec. 15. Checkoffs exist for nearly a dozen U.S. commodities, and in the case of the dairy industry, the money it raised helped launch the now-famous “Got Milk?” campaign. The survey can be taken here. - Hemp Industry Daily

EU officials resume review of CBD novel food applications after ditching narcotic stance

European regulators have resumed their review of novel food authorization applications for CBD products after the commission abandoned its preliminary stance that cannabidiol should be treated as a narcotic. The European Commission, the executive arm of the European Union, says the change comes after a landmark court decision that CBD should be freely traded among member states, instead of limited as a narcotic. Stefan De Keersmaecker, commission spokesperson for public health and food safety, confirmed that the European Commission had changed its opinion on CBD, which had been based on a strict reading of a 1961 international drugs treaty. Hemp-derived cannabinoids, including...
