Frequently Asked Questions
Question 1: Will agricultural research pilot programs that conduct experiments involving growing industrial hemp still require DEA permitting?
Answer: No, as long as the hemp in question is grown or cultivated under a license, registration, authorization, or production lease with a state pilot program under (or otherwise compliant with) Section 7606. DEA permitting is required under the Controlled Substances Act (CSA). The 2014 Farm Bill legitimized industrial hemp research “notwithstanding” the CSA, if performed pursuant to section 7606.

I'm hoping that at some point in my life I'm going to be able to have the time and resources to be able to try to construct some structural panels by taking hemp canvas and layering it and impregnating it with plant polymers in order to make a rigid strong panel that could be made in any shape

Industrial hemp was legalized a couple years ago on TN- yet we just had raids on hemp derived CBD products... the asshats still abound!
According to researchers at the National Institute of Scientific Research at the University of Quebec, which used the hospital discharge records of nearly 320,000 patients who either currently abuse, or in the past have abused, alcohol, marijuana is something of a miracle drug:
Alcohol abusers who didn’t consume cannabis during their heavy drinking days had a whopping 90% chance of developing a liver disease. “Light” cannabis users, conversely, had only an 8% chance.
Schmitt’s company and its parent, Hemp, Inc., have recently begun operations at a new 70,000 square foot multipurpose hemp processing mill in Spring Hope, North Carolina. The facility, which is North America’s largest, is able to process hemp for industrial products as well as other cultivars grown for their CBD-rich flowers.
But he believes 2017 was still a valuable growing season, particularly since farmers new to hemp gained valuable knowledge and experience. He expects as many as 10,000 acres will be planted in North Carolina in 2018, and that the state will lead the U.S. in production within two or three years.
