Hemp Holdouts: Seven States Slow to Reform Hemp Laws After Farm Bill

Idaho’s state legislative session ended earlier this month with a tinge of disappointment. Despite overwhelming bipartisan support to legalize industrial hemp, the legislature was unable to pass a resolution to relax the state’s hemp ban. Adding to the frustration felt by hemp advocates was the shared inability of both the state’s House and Senate to approve measures legalizing hemp, as they failed to reconcile their competing bills.

That failure could prove problematic over the coming year: Aside from the lost opportunity to take advantage of the socioeconomic benefits afforded by legalization, there remains a heightened legal risk of transporting hemp through the state.

Though the 2018 Farm Bill made hemp federally legal, for the time being it remains codified as a Schedule I controlled substance under Idaho state law. At least one truck driver this year has been arrested by Idaho State Police for transporting hemp, yet charged with trafficking in cannabis. Until Idaho reconciles their laws, many consider the state a dead zone for the hemp industry.

Phivida Holdings Inc. (CSE: VIDA OTCQX: PHVAF) (“Phivida” or the “Company”) announces the private beta launch of the Wikala eCommerce platform, featuring cannabis accessories from reputable manufacturers.

“The interest in the private beta release has been phenomenal so far and we look forward to working closely with our customers and creating the most trusted cannabis online marketplace in this industry,” says David Moon, CEO of Wikala. “We’ve been working at maximum pace to get to this stage, and it’s encouraging to think that this is only the beginning of where Wikala and Phivida can go.”

Wikala is a stand-alone eCommerce platform that is set to become the first website in the global cannabis and hemp-CBD space to offer independent sellers’ personal storefronts where they can list their goods within an existing marketplace. The private beta signup is still open and the platform will be available for use for a select number of beta users, based on their geography, for the next 55 days. During that time, the Wikala team will monitor user feedback and prepare the software for the next release.

The core features included in the private beta release are a fraction of the company’s ultimate vision, however, they are a necessary first step and include all of the basic features of an eCommerce website, including a product comparison tool that is yet to be seen in the cannabis market.

“The potential of Wikala is in its modularity and the fact that we can develop new creative features quickly and without having to rely on third party software,” continued Mr. Moon. “This allows us to use the Open Beta release to set the stage for the next milestone, which is to open the sellers’ portal and allow individual businesses to open their stores on Wikala.”

Wikala’s next milestone is the public release of the platform, expected on July 15, 2019, which will feature a refurbished design for mobile devices, a coupon system for discounts, advanced smart search and various additional functionalities that provide a glitch-free user experience from shopping to product delivery. The July 15 public launch is expected to be the platform’s Open Beta.
