4 New States to Allow Hemp Cultivation for CBD Oil Extraction

Since the 2014 Farm Bill, close to almost 40 different U.S. states have passed some variation of law allowing the cultivation of industrial hemp within its borders. The recent surge in interest involved in medical benefits of the cannabinoid compound known as Cannabidiol, or CBD,  has caused farmers to jump at the chance of growing the hemp plant because of the potential yield per acre.

Recently New Mexico, Arizona, Georgia, and Kansas have taken action on easing legislation in favor of CBD and the propagation of hemp.

New Mexico
Two different industrial hemp bills will take immediate effect in New Mexico after Justices on the New Mexico state Supreme Court upheld a lower court’s decision to strike down Republican Gov. Susana Martinez’s vetoes of a pair of hemp production bills.

Gov. Martinez had recently vetoed the two bills without an explanation which caused the states High Court to determine that the Governor had acted unconstitutionally by not provided an explanation along with her veto.

Arizona
Republican Gov. Doug Ducey signed legislation, SB 1098, into law this month which will  allow farmers to conduct a pilot program in conjunction with a licensed institution to research the “growth, cultivation, and marketing of industrial hemp.”

Georgia
Passage of House Bill 65 permits patients with post-traumatic stress disorder and intractable pain to receive a doctors authorization to possess CBD oil.

Under the law,patients may possess up to 20 ounces of CBD-infused oils as long as they contain no more than five percent THC. The new law does not, however, provide for the licensed production of these products.

Kansas
Republican Gov. Jeff Colyer has signed a new law that will amend the state’s criminal code to explicitly exempt cannabidiol from the definition of marijuana. Passage of Senate Bill 282 allows for the possession and retail sale of products containing CBD as long as they contain zero percent THC.
