Help Stop Efforts to Eliminate Broad and Full Spectrum Hemp and CBD Extracts

PASSED December 31, 2023

URGENT call to California Hemp Supporters: There’s a concerted effort afoot to eliminate the broad spectrum and full spectrum hemp and CBD extract market in California, and we need your immediate help to stop it.

Longtime hemp champion State Assemblywoman Cecilia Aguiar-Curry has introduced AB 420 as an effort to clean up provisions in the current hemp law and crack down on bad actors in the space. Unfortunately, marijuana monopolists in the state are trying to use this vehicle to impose draconian THC limits on hemp and CBD products which would eliminate the broad and full spectrum hemp marketplace. The California Department of Public Health just joined the fray, offering a poison pill amendment that would set the limit for total THC in hemp at an infinitesimal 0.001 mg/g.

We encourage California Hemp Supporters to immediately contact Assemblywoman Aguiar-Curry and urge her to block efforts to impose draconian THC milligram caps on hemp[ products. Please use our State Action Center to share your message, and we ask that you share your personal stories on what such limits would do to your farm, business, livelihood or personal wellness. If you live outside of the Golden State, please share this action item with your friends, associates and social media contacts in California. Time is of the essence, as the legislature will resume taking action after the Labor Day holiday.
