CBD: Navigating the CSA and Farm Bill will address all issues related to industrial hemp and CBD production. The panel will reprise the delineation between CBD derived from industrial hemp and that from flowering ‘marijuana’ plants, and the current case pending in the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals Hemp Industry Association v. DEA. It will also address the states in which the cultivation of industrial hemp is currently authorized by the state agricultural governing body, as well as those that are currently pushing for hemp to be regulated by broader cannabis regulatory bodies.
