New cash crop? High Country opportunities grow as hemp is legalized
(Cannabis, CBD, Food, Grower, Growers, Growing, Hemp, News, North Carolina, Oils, Organic, Production, Research, Testing, Tobacco, United States, THC) Local farmers could see an opportunity in 2019 as hemp has been made legal to grow and consume nationwide as part of the 2018 Farm Bill. According to Ashe County Cooperative Extension Director Travis Birdsell, hemp’s decriminalization is a potential game-changer for county agricultural production. “When I say game-changer, I mean it’s going to change something, but we don’t know how,” Birdsell said. “This is brand new — the first time in my lifetime that we’ve had a brand new crop with the veil pulled away from it like that.” Hemp — also known by its scientific name, cannabis sativa — is a plant that has been federally illegal since the 1930s, along with its counterpart, marijuana. While both hemp and marijuana are grown from cannabis sativa seeds, hemp contains high concentrations of the chemical CBD — known as a cannabinoid — whereas marijuana contains high concentrations of THC, another cannabinoid, according to Birdsell. Hemp plants are bred to naturally contain only a trace...

(California, Canada, Candy, CBD, CBD Only, Deals, Development, Distribution, Edibles, Florida, Manufacturing, Nevada, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, Product Development, Production, Retail Stores, Texas, United States, Washington, THC) VANCOUVER, BC, CANADA (10 January 2019) – PRESS RELEASE – Weekend Unlimited Inc. has announced the closing of its acquisition of the remaining 20 percent of California’s Canna Candys and Canna Medibles that it did not previously own. Pursuant to the original purchase and sales agreement dated Sept. 20, 2018, the company paid US $360,000 in cash and issued 5,106,383 shares at a deemed price of $0.094 per share to own 100 percent. “Canna Candys is a developed brand with approximately 35 percent of hard candy market share in Southern California,” said Paul Chu, president and CEO of Weekend Unlimited. “The company is in the final steps to begin operations from a new licensed facility in Adelanto California, providing capacity in product development and manufacturing to grow substantially. The operations team is experienced, having built distribution in Southern California to 380 retail stores, and are expecting additional sales growth this year."

Marijuana stocks weekend investor roundup: Analysis of the week’s most important events in the cannabis industry (January 5)
(California, Canada, Cannabis, Connecticut, Events, Germany, Growers, Illinois, Investors, Israel, Leases, Legalization, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, News, North Carolina, Oregon, Recreational, Regulations, Retail Stores, United States, Recreational Cannabis, Cultivation) Ontario only opening 25 retail stores in 2019 Bottom Line: The Ontario government is now saying only 25 retail cannabis stores will be open in 2019, or only one store per 550,000 people. The random drawing means that many LPs and other retail operators who spent money to sign leases in hopes of opening are now left paying for space they will not be able to use. Grizzle believes the supply shortage will be largely eliminated in the second half of 2019, so the Ontario government is being far too conservative in only allowing 25 stores. These 25 stores could generate at most CA$30 million ($22.43 million) per store per year or CA$560 million ($418.71 million) total in 2019. For perspective, the market cap of the 11 largest licensed producers implies CA$9 billion ($6.73) of sales in 2020. Oregon farmers produced 450,000 kg of marijuana in 2018 Bottom Line: Oregon’s 1,107 growers grew enough cannabis to supply the equivalent of 75 percent of Canada’s demand. Oregon is harvesting 450,000 kg...

Every year, since 2014, there has been a rider amendment in the federal spending bill to protect states that have legalized medical marijuana, Forbes notes, and it is only valid when the government is operational. Language that would extend legal protections for state medical marijuana programs from federal interference is included in a new bill expected to pass this week to end the current government shutdown. The bill reads: “None of the funds made available under this Act to the Department of Justice may be used, with respect to any of the States of Alabama, Alaska, Arizona, Arkansas, California, Colorado, Connecticut, Delaware, Florida, Georgia, Hawaii, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Mississippi, Missouri,...

Google Searches Reveal Increased Interest in Hemp Following Farm Bill Passage
(Advertising, Alabama, California, Cannabis, CBD, Colorado, Distribution, Growing, Hawaii, Hemp, Hemp Farming, Hemp Products, Indiana, Iowa, Kentucky, Legalization, Maine, Michigan, Mississippi, Montana, Nebraska, North Carolina, Oklahoma, Oregon, Production, Products, South Dakota, Tennessee, United States, Vermont, Washington, Wisconsin, Industrial Hemp, THC, Cultivation) Throughout 2018, hemp legalization has remained a steady backdrop in the Farm Bill debate. U.S. Sen. Mitch McConnell added his Hemp Farming Act into the $867-billion agricultural overhaul back in June; since then, the hemp revolution has been on the tip of farmers’ tongues from Kentucky to California. Along the way, interest in what will happen after passage of the Farm Bill has only grown. When Congress approved the legislation on Dec. 12, the country collectively looked ahead to a time when the hemp-derived CBD market will flourish—to the tune of $22 billion by 2022, according to recent Brightfield Group projections.Wanting to get a sense of how that interest is playing out in the U.S., we turned to Google.Melena Guganus published a report on CBD-related search trends for Remedy Review. She found that Oklahoma, Kentucky and Indiana led the country in digital queries for CBD-related terms. Those traditionally conservative states each have an agricultural legacy; all three developed...

At his Lazy Gator’s Hemp Farm in Kinston, he’s breeding seed lines, experimenting with cultivation techniques and making products such as skin creams and gummy candies.Like a growing number of struggling U.S. farmers, Williams is betting on hemp as an entirely new cash crop. Lumped in with its intoxicating cousin for decades under federal laws restricting controlled substances, Congress is on the verge of fully legalizing hemp under a new farm bill.
