HEMP HEMP HOORAY

Published on:

Dear Valued Customers,

 

On July 30th, 2019 Ohio Governor Mike DeWine signed Senate Bill 57 into law. Hemp is now separate and distinct from marijuana in Ohio with the clarification and definitions of hemp and hemp products were added to the law. This is excellent news for the people of Ohio as hemp-derived CBD is now legal to purchase and for stores to sell! Many customers depend on hemp-derived CBD products for their health ailments, and retailers rely on the sale of hemp-derived CBD products to keep their business thriving.

 

This is a win for everyone in Ohio from the consumer to the retailer and our family farmers! Clean Remedies is Ohio proud and commend our politicians who understood the importance of hemp-derived CBD products!

Guidance on Products Derived from Hemp
Updated 7/30/2019

Recent updates to Ohio law (SB 57) change the definition of marijuana to no longer include hemp and hemp products with a THC content of no more than three-tenths of a percent. Hemp products, including hemp-derived CBD (cannabidiol), can now be sold outside of a licensed medical marijuana dispensary.

 

Under Ohio law, hemp is now defined as: 

The plant Cannabis sativa L. and any part of that plant, including the seeds thereof and all derivatives, extracts, cannabinoids, isomers, acids, salts, salts of isomers, whether growing or not, with a delta-9 tetrahydrocannabinol concentration of not more than 0.3% on a dry weight basis.” 

 

The law requires the Ohio Department of Agriculture to establish a Hemp Cultivation and Processing Program. This will include licensing of hemp cultivators and processors and requires the Department to adopt rules governing the operation of the program.

 

Thank you for your continued support of our mission to provide you and your family with superior hemp-derived CBD products!
