2018 Farm Bill

Every five years, Congress passes legislation that sets national agriculture, nutrition, conservation, and forestry policy, commonly referred to as the “Farm Bill”.

In January 2019 President Trump signed into Law the 2018 Farm Bill which had legislation in it that Federally legalized the sale of CBD across state-lines under the conditions that Tetrahydrocannabinols were derived from HEMP and that the measured THC content was below the Bill’s imposed federal limit of .3% THC by dry weight volume.  (DELLA SANO Products are 0.0% THC validated by certificate of analysis documentation)

A few of the 2018 Farm Bill highlights are:

  • Renewed, and further defined, components of the 2014 Farm Bill that had expired on September 30, 2018.
  • The 2014 Farm Bill is responsible for getting the HEMP Industry launched. It set up the framework for Industrial HEMP cultivating.
