THE FARM BILL
HERE ARE SOME FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS.
As a trusted hemp product retailer, Hemp Mind & Body strives to provide you with excellence, so we make sure that we follow the guidelines provided by the Farm Bill, passed in 2018. We consistently stay up to date with ever-changing laws and regulations to make sure you are getting only the best of the best.
Made from 100% organic and pure extracts, HMB partners with generational farmers that have grown their hemp for decades, where the soil is respected, and the climate is impeccable. Keeping it as close to nature as we can because we know Mother Nature already provides the best.
WHAT IS THE FARM BILL, AND WHY IS IT IMPORTANT?
On December 20, 2018 President Donald J. Trump signed into law the 2018 Agricultural Improvement Act, otherwise known as the 2018 Farm Bill. This act contained language specifically inserted by Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (KY) that completely legalized industrial hemp and ended nearly 80 years of prohibition on the plant. Hemp is now completely exempt from the definition of the controlled substance act (CSA).
Additionally, the World Health Organization and the World Anti-Doping Agency both made public declarations that CBD is safe and non-addictive and removed CBD from the banned substances list.
Furthermore, the 2018 Farm Bill clarified the definition of hemp — often limited to fiber and seed — to include the entire plant, specifically the floral parts and cannabinoids derived from it. This put into motion the legal framework for the already burgeoning marketplace for hemp and CBD extracts.
IS HEMP MIND & BODY COMPLIANT WITH ALL LAWS?
Yes. We work closely with the State of Kentucky and the Department of Agriculture to ensure we are compliant with all existing laws regarding hemp extracts and byproducts. We are also FDA registered, follow cGMP guidelines and carry several International Organization for Standardization (ISO) safety certifications.
WHAT IS INDUSTRIAL HEMP, AND HOW IS IT DEFINED IN THE FARM BILL?
Industrial hemp is the non-psychoactive, low-THC, genetically distinct variety of the plant cannabis sativa. Hemp has absolutely no use as a recreational drug. The Farm Bill defines industrial hemp as “the plant Cannabis sativa L. and any part of such plant, whether growing or not, with a delta-9 tetrahydrocannabinol concentration of not more than 0.3 percent on a dry weight basis.”
