US Hemp TV: H.R. 841 Congressional Briefing with Lead Bill Sponsor Rep. Kurt Schrader (D-OR)

U.S. Hemp Roundtable

On Tuesday, May 25th, the U.S. Hemp Roundtable had the opportunity to host Congressman Kurt Schrader (D-OR) and esteemed industry expert guests for a Congressional briefing concerning H.R. 841, The Hemp and Hemp-Derived CBD Consumer Protection and Market Stabilization Act of 2021.

Congressman Schrader, who is the lead bill sponsor, and our panel of industry experts discussed why H.R. 841 – which would provide a regulatory pathway for the sale of hemp-derived CBD as a dietary supplement – is so necessary to provide economic relief to the nation’s farmers, as well as to protect consumers from the current unregulated CBD and Delta-8 marketplace.

Scheduled Panelists included:

  • The Honorable Kurt Schrader (D-OR), lead sponsor of HR 841
  • Ola Lessard, President, U.S. Hemp Roundtable
  • Amber Littlejohn, Executive Director, Minority Cannabis Business Association
  • Michael McGuffin, President, American Herbal Products Association
  • Scott Melville, President, Consumer Healthcare Products Association
  • Steven Mister, President, Council for Responsible Nutrition
  • Loren Israelson, President, United Natural Products Alliance
  • Kyle Truesdale, CEO, Agrarian Manager, and U.S. hemp farmer
  • Hosted by Jonathan Miller, General Counsel, U.S. Hemp Roundtable
