HEMP POLICY & LAW
FEDERAL HEMP LAWS
The 2018 US FARM BILL amended Sec. 297A of the Agricultural Marketing Act of 1946, which redefined hemp and its legal status. The bill also amended Sec. 102(16) and 202(c) of the Controlled Substance Act to establish hemp as separate from marijuana and to establish that TCH found in hemp is exempt from the Controlled Substance Act. The bill defines hemp as Cannabis with 0.3% THC or less by dry weight including all parts of the plant and removes it from the Controlled Substances Act.
Additional regulations and laws may apply depending on the state you reside in. Please check your State’s laws applicable to the possession and sale of hemp flower products.
Below are the amended Acts that make the sale and of hemp products legal:
Sec 297A of the Agricultural Marketing Act of 1946 – “The term ‘hemp’ means the plant Cannabis sativa L. and any part of that plant, including the seed thereof and all derivatives, ex-tracts,, cannabinoids, isomers, acids, salts, and salts of isomers, whether growing or not, with a delta-9 tetrahydrocannabinol concentration of no more than 0.3% on a dry weight basis.”
Sec 102(16) of the Controlled Substance Act – “The term ‘marijuana’ does not include hemp, as defined in section 297A of the Agricultural Marketing Act of 1946.”
Sec 202(c) of the Controlled Substance Act is a table that previously had tetrahydrocannabinol listed as number 17 on the list of Scheduled 1 substances. This entry has been amended and now reads: “(17) Tetrahydrocannabinol, except for tetrahydrocannabinol in hemp (as defined under section 297A of the Agricultural Marketing Act of 1946.)”
STATE HEMP LAWS
CLUB TWENTY AFTER POLICY
The delta-9 tetrahydrocannabinol in our hemp products are so low, they are considered LOQ or “limit of quantitation” meaning it is less than 0.1% and well below the 0.3% maximum level. Our hemp is purchased from Oregon State from an Oregon Department of Agriculture approved licensed Farm and Oregon Department of Agriculture licensed Grower/Handler of legal “industrial hemp” under the allowable provisions set forth by the 2014 US Farm Bill, which included a pilot program for industrial hemp that led to the 2018 US Farm Bill with the same standards. Therefore, this hemp flower is legal for anyone to possess by anyone in the United States and to sell when done so by a licensed handler.
NOTICE TO CONSUMER: Although hemp is federally legal, be sure to check your local and state governments for rules, regulations, permits, or licensing requirements to legally possess sell industrial hemp. Club Twenty After does not take legal responsibility for anyone who intentionally misrepresents their legal status to sell hemp.
