The 2018 farm bill legalized the production of hemp as an agricultural commodity while removing it from the list of controlled substances. Industrial Hemp is defined as Cannabis Sativa L. and required to be below a THC threshold of 0.3%.
“Hemp Product” according to VDACS means any finished product that contains industrial hemp including rope building materials,automobile parts,animal bedding, animal feed, cosmetics, oil containing an industrial hemp extract, or food or food additives for human consumption
On July 15,2019, the commissioner of Agriculture and Consumer Services advised Registered Hemp Processors that the Northam Administration has directed VDACS to treat Hemp-Deprived extracts intended for human consumption as approved food additives and to place qualifying Registered Industrial Hemp Processors under food safety inspection so that inspected and approved processors may manufacture a Hemp-Derived extract intended for human consumption.
CBD stands for cannabidiol. It is a NON-INTOXICATING cannabinoid found in cannabis.
Discovered by scientists in the 1990’s, endocannabinoids are the natural cannabis-like molecules produced by the human body. They are endogenous lipid-based retrograde neurotransmitters that bind to cannabinoid receptors, and cannabinoid receptor proteins that are expressed throughout the vertebrate central nervous system.
