The regulatory process continues to move forward but at a pace that can’t quite keep up with the entrepreneurial spirit of so many businesses working to stake their claim in the market. Within the ever-changing landscape, the requirements and opportunities continue to become clearer and we are pleased to provide this update to help keep you on track as you are planting seeds and growing your hemp business. In this Hempspert TM bulletin we provide an update on the status of California’s USDA Hemp Plan, hemp farmers in California, proposed hemp-related legislation, banking updates and exciting proposed changes in Nevada law regarding CBD consumables!
Hemp CBD companies that sell smokable hemp products will be required to include a warning for marijuana smoke, because Prop 65 requires disclosure if there is any detectable level of THC. Additionally, rolling papers can contain chemicals on the Proposition 65 list, such as lead. Hemp-CBD beauty products may contain beta-myrcene, a terpene commonly found in the cannabis plant. CBD products may contain small amounts of THC, unless they are produced using a CBD isolate. There may be other chemicals of concern, including lead, or myclobutanil (a pesticide). If a product contains these chemicals, then the manufacturer must provide a Proposition 65 warning on their label. Companies with less than 10 employees are exempt from this requirement.
Hempspert TM is tracking the development of each state’s regulation of CBD hemp products and comparing the approaches in each state. For legal services regarding cultivating hemp or starting a hemp business in California, please contact us at 877-257-2442.
