legal definition of hemp

HOW GREEN ROADS STAYS COMPLIANT IN THE HEMP INDUSTRY

While the federal legalities surrounding hemp and CBD continue to become more favorable, several states have initiated their own laws prohibiting the cultivation of hemp. Others have added to the federal restrictions on industrial hemp cultivation without completely prohibiting the practice.

For example, the state of Indiana requires that, for CBD products to be legally protected, the packaging must include a means of establishing that the product is indeed compliant with federal regulations. For this reason, we have added QR codes on all of our packaging which redirects to lab test results for each respective product.

Green Roads complies with:

  • The Agricultural Act Of 2014
  • The Controlled Substances Act of 1970
  • Section 763 of the Omnibus Appropriations Act of 2016.

WHAT IS THE LEGAL DEFINITION OF HEMP?

According to the federal government, industrial hemp is defined as any plant, or a derivative thereof, of the genus Cannabis, with less than 0.3% THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) by dry weight. THC is the compound in cannabis that causes psychoactive effects (the high). 

SOME BACKGROUND ON THE HEMP PLANT

There are three species of cannabis – Sativa, Indica, and Ruderalis. Only Sativa and Indica are commercially practical commodities. Ruderalis is a low-growing shrub that produces small, weak stocks and almost no flowering tops. Indica and Sativa, on the other hand, are both widely grown and cultivated for the diverse uses of virtually every part of the plant, from its seeds to its flowering top. Sativa plants usually grow tall and thin, and Indica plants are generally short with lots of flowering tops. 

THE FUTURE OF HEMP DERIVED CBD COMPLIANCE

As the hemp industry of the US continues to grow and develop, lawmakers are beginning to smell the (CBD) coffee. To learn more about how Green Roads complies with your state’s laws, click on your state below.
