Gone Green is a member of the Hemp Industries Association and as such has had exposure to the collectively understood legal opinion for the legal status of hemp products by the industry.
In a nutshell it is our understanding that previously the only federally legal Hemp products from US Grown Hemp was from hemp grown under the pilot programs authorized by Congress under the 2014 Farm Bill. Now that the 2018 Farm Bill has been signed into law, hemp has become fully legal, although the FDA still isn’t so sure about the word “CBD”. That is the taboo word.
Our hemp was always grown under the pilot program and therefore it is our understanding that it has always been fully lawful to possess anywhere in the United States according to federal law.
Below are both the most recent statement from Jonathan Miller and his formal legal opinion authored on October 2, 2017. Jonathan Miller is the head counsel to the US Hemp Roundtable.
