There was a lot of progress in 2018 when it came to the legality of hemp products. The federal government decided to back down a bit. CBD is no longer jumbled in with marijuana as a dangerous substance. A Farm Bill is being passed that removes cannabis plants with zero THC from the Controlled Substance Act.Whether or not this Bill would impact the 2019 growing year is unclear at this point. It is looking like the CBD market and hemp market will progress quite extensively for the 2020 year and beyond. It has taken many years to get to this point. While hemp has been grown for many years now, the Controlled Substances Act of 1970 placed all cannabis products into one category. The benefits of these products are finally being acknowledged. Many states have chosen to take on commercial endeavors. It is hoped that many more states will follow in 2019.
