The U.S. Hemp Roundtable, alongside the Minority Cannabis Business Association, hosted Navigating Regulations in the Hemp Industry: A complimentary webinar for small and minority-owned hemp companies on June 22, 2021. The webinar provided essential information, education, and resources for those with, or seeking to start a business in the hemp and CBD space.

We’re excited to share that California SB235 unanimously passed the Senate Agriculture Committee this week. The bill—and its Assembly companion, AB45—would allow the distribution and sale of CBD as a food, beverage, and dietary supplement (subject to labeling requirements) and would make clear that a product is not adulterated or misbranded for including hemp. California Hemp Supporters are encouraged to use our State Action Center to continue urging state legislators to support AB45 and SB235.
