In California The California Industrial Hemp Farming Act (Senate Bill 566, Chapter 398, Statutes of 2013) was signed into law to authorize the commercial production of industrial hemp in California. The Act became effective on January 1, 2017, due to a provision in the Adult Use of Marijuana Act (Proposition 64, November 2016).
President Trump signing the 2018 Farm Bill inclusive of the hemp sections will create a rapid expansion of Hemp on the global market.
The Commercialization of Hemp, CBD and Hemp related products has caused an explosive growth in the demand for hemp across multiple industries such as clothing, textiles, paper, food, plastics, insulation, fuel, cosmetic and pharmaceutical. Repurposing of farmland worldwide has exploded to meet the demand for raw materials and medicinal products like CBD and other Hemp-Derived compounds.
