To the delight of US farmers, congress in a bipartisan effort has passed the 2018 Farm Bill that contains a provision legalizing Hemp production. The bill will legalize Hemp production, it will allow for CBD oil-a hemp extract-to be exported across State lines.
This is a major development for the proposed Hemp Manufacturing facility in Cleveland's Glenville neighborhood. The facility would import hemp from neighboring states and convert the raw material into building products, clothing and even drinking straws. As expected the bill contains strict federal regulations that will hold hemp producers to follow narrow federal guidelines. The Farm Bill is scheduled to be signed into law this week.
