“We will share our knowledge and support as they work through the licensing process and provide co-branded workshops to students while their facility is being built, keeping them abreast of industry standards,” she added.

CBDMEDIC Predicts Industrial Hemp Farming Legalization Will Triple Their Growth

Roughly every five years the United States Congress passes a new version of the Farm Bill which changes the regulations on agriculture, trade, food, energy production and more related to the farming industry. In 2014 the farm bill gave states the right to pass laws regarding the growing, research and development of hemp which paved the way for the legalization across the United States.

As of 2018, 38 states have or have considered legislation related to industrial hemp farming. The passing of the proposed 2018 Farm Bill would eliminate the legal grey area facing the CBD industry by legalizing industrial hemp farming on a federal level. The legalization of Hemp on a federal level will bring more jobs to the US economy as well as the potential of increase in sales in an already-thriving CBD market.

What is Hemp Used for?

Hemp is an impressive plant with its uses ranging from textiles, food, fuel, and health benefits. Additionally, within hemp there are over 113 known cannabinoids or extracts which provide many different health and wellness benefits when used effectively. One example is CBD, a non-psychoactive extract that is being used to treat different types of pain, anxiety and restless sleep.

Watch Alec Burkin Director of business marketing at CBDMEDIC

What will passage of the 2018 Farm Bill mean?

As the bill is currently written, hemp is legal for universities and state departments of agriculture to grow for research purposes. The bill includes a provision, enabling industrial farmers to grow hemp with the approval of the Drug Enforcement Administration.

The 2018 Bill would amend the Controlled Substances Act, which states that CBD derived from hemp is considered a controlled substance. Hemp will be federally legal and thus will allow hemp and help related products to be sold as legal products rather than being monitored as controlled substances. This allows for a more clear distinction between certain extracts which are found in both hemp and marijuana. For example products that contain CBD derived from hemp would be federally legal. Although CBD is legal in all 50 states, the 2018 version of the bill would officially acknowledge the distinction between CBD derived from hemp or marijuana.

The Marijuana Tax Act of 1937

As of August 2nd 1937, there have been regulations put on the sale of Marijuana. Without the distinction between Hemp and Marijuana both were considered to be a Schedule One Substance at a federal level. As of today, the use of recreational marijuana is permissible in 10 states, with an additional 33 states allowing marijuana for medicinal purposes or having some type of.

Is it the last round for The Farm Bill?

The agreement will mean we are one step closer to the government’s recognition of the benefits of cannabis, what it can do for the health of the American people, and the economy, we all should keep a close eye on the coming weeks for changes.

CBDMEDIC main objective is to develop safer products that could provide faster, stronger and longer lasting relief from muscle and joint pain associated with daily living, sports injuries, arthritis, and other types of inflammation.

The cannabis market is growing rapidly around the globe for both medical and recreational applications. Specifically, by type of product within the market, hemp-derived products are gaining popularity. Hemp-based products have many uses, which is a major reason why many companies are investing into the industry. According to data compiled by Hemp Biz Journal, a division of New Frontier Data, the U.S. Hemp Industry sales grew to USD 820 Million in 2017, or 16% within the year. Now, the industry is projected to grow to USD 1.9 Billion by 2022 and register a CAGR of 14.4% during the forecast period. By segment, hemp-derived CBD products, personal care, industrial applications and food held the largest market value. By 2022, hemp-derived CBD products will continue to control a majority of the segment. Koios Beverage Corp. (OTC: KBEVF), Youngevity International, Inc. (NASDAQ: YGYI), Cannabis Sativa, Inc. (OTC: CBDS), Planet 13 Holdings Inc. (OTC: PLNHF), CannaRoyalty Corp. (OTC: ORHOF)

In 2017, U.S. hemp sales totaled USD 820 Million, as hemp-derived CBD products contributed nearly USD 181 Million, while personal care products drove in USD 181 Million and the food segment delivered USD 137 Million. By 2022, the hemp-derived CBD segment is expected to drive in approximately USD 646 Million of the market value. The market is already positioned to reach a USD 1 Billion market by the end of 2018 due to the heavy demand for CBD-based products. “Just as the marijuana industry has exploded in recent years, so too has a sector that revolves around the plant’s non-psychoactive cousin: hemp,” said John Schroye, Senior Report at Marijuana Business Daily. “That success and the resulting demand across the nation for more CBD-based health products helped give birth to a new industry that parallels the larger cannabis market.”

Koios Beverage Corp. (OTC: KBEVF) is also listed on the Canadian Securities Exchange under the ticker (CSE: KBEV). Earlier today the company announced breaking news that, “it has signed a vendor agreement with GNC Holdings, Inc. (GNC), a leading global health and wellness brand with thousands of retail stores across the U.S. and Canada.

“We are incredibly pleased to be working with GNC on a national rollout of our ready-to-drink line,” said CEO Chris Miller. “Improving the quality of peoples’ lives is a shared principle between us and we look forward to eventually adding value to GNC customers across the globe. The added revenue growth could be substantial and a catalyst for hitting our projected growth targets in the coming years.”

Pittsburgh-based GNC has more than 6,400 retail locations throughout the United States and Canada and franchise operations in approximately 50 international markets. GNC Canada is based in Mississauga, Ontario and operates as a subsidiary of GNC. It is well known as a go-to source for health, wellness and sports nutrition.

GNC sets the standard in the nutritional supplement industry-demanding truth in labeling, ingredient safety and product potency, all while remaining on the cutting-edge of nutritional science. As the company has grown over the years, so has its commitment to living well.

“GNC is one of the largest and best-known nutritional companies in the world. Working with them is a tremendous honour and something we have envisioned since our inception,” said Miller “From scientific research and new product discovery to the manufacturing and packaging processes, GNC takes pride in its rigorous approach to ensuring quality. We are incredibly confident we can deliver the best products in their category and look forward to tremendous growth opportunities with our new partner in the years to come.”

Koios is expected to be available in the United States by Q1 of 2019.”

Afzal Hasan, President and General Counsel of Origin House commented, “This Acquisition was a logical next step for Origin House, led by the needs of our brand partners as we execute on our brand support and acceleration strategy. Access to bespoke third-party cultivation is critical for new flower brands that want an authentic brand promise from seed to consumption.

The facility and team have produced flower for some of the top packaged flower brands in California, as well as a prominent pre-roll brand.
