The United States Senate and House passed the 2018 Farm Bill this week thus paving the way for CBD and hemp legalization. Sen. Ron Wyden said, “For too long, the outrageous and outdated ban on growing hemp has hamstrung farmers in Oregon and across the country. Hemp products are made in America, sold in America, and consumed in America. Now, hemp will be able to be legally grown in America, to the economic benefit of consumers and farmers in Oregon and nationwide.”
