420 with CNW — Hemp Industry Experts Say Regulations Would Boost Sector

For nearly a century, hemp has been at the mercy of prohibitionist policies that outlawed the cultivation and sale of industrial hemp in America. But after the 2018 Farm Bill legalized hemp and allowed states that were interested to create hemp programs, a robust industry quickly grew around the plant. By the end of 2020, the U.S. hemp industry had generated nearly $10 billion in sales, partly due to the rising popularity of cannabidiol (“CBD”), a hemp extract said to have potent medical properties.

However, the industry is barely regulated by the federal government. Each state has its own rules, leading to a patchwork of hemp regulations across the country, and the relevant authorities still haven’t created a comprehensive regulatory structure for hemp. Stakeholders and lawmakers have urged the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (“FDA”) to craft hemp regulations, but the federal agency has been dragging its feet. In the wake of the FDA’s rejection of a proposal to allow the sale of full-spectrum CBD as a dietary supplement, industry leaders say hemp would benefit a great deal from regulation.

Priyanka Sharma, cofounder of Kazmira, a Denver-based, industrial-scale producer of CBD isolate, says that regulation would raise the bar for high-quality production and manufacturing processes and ensure customers get products with safe ingredients. FDA approval would also provide sellers with the most-effective product format, Sharma says, allowing for much-needed toxicology and safety studies on hemp extracts such as CBD. According to Jeniffer Knaack, the senior director of compliance and science at Koi CBD in California, hemp products deserve just as much legitimacy as other botanical supplements. Federal prohibitionist policies against cannabis and hemp have created significant barriers to research, commerce, and investment, she says.

Federal regulation with a focus on science and research into hemp extracts would ensure the U.S. hemp industry is grounded in science and put the safety of the consumers first, says Knaack. Mark Montgomery, the cofounder and CEO of Tennessee-based NuSachi Holdings concurs, stating that the only reason there are bad actors in the CBD space is that hemp does not have any standards of operation or product quality. High production standards require investment in talented staff and suitable technology, and companies that hold themselves to high standards will be at a disadvantage compared to the bad actors that would rather make a quick buck at the expense of customers’ health.

Emily Leongini, a regulatory attorney with the FDA and a partner at Los-Angeles based Arent Fox, says the myriad of different hemp rules in different states provides a significant challenge for companies that want to expand. Not only is modifying products to meet contrasting standards in different states not commercially viable, but it also exposes them to consumer class litigation risks. Leading CBD industry actors such as The Alkaline Water Company Inc. (NASDAQ: WTER) (CSE: WTER) would prefer operating conditions in which such unnecessary risks are avoided, so federal regulations would be a welcome development.

420 with CNW — How Hemp Growers Can Safeguard Produce from Disasters

Floods and hurricanes affecting states in the East and drought conditions prevailing across the country, particularly in the Western region, have made this year’s conditions for crop production unpredictable. To protect their investments, cannabis and hemp producers are working to secure insurance for their crops. However, this is not an easy feat, considering hemp has been federally illegal for a longer period of time than it has been legal.

Hemp was legalized under the 2018 Farm Bill, which allowed producers to pay for private insurance policies as well as secure crop insurance through the Department of Agriculture. As more states legalize recreational and medical cannabis, commercial insurance providers have been preparing to expand their coverage. However, there are limits on how far their coverage can reach.

With regard to drought insurance, federal agriculture regulators are allowing emergency practices to help crop producers affected by drought conditions. The Risk Management Agency has also been working with crop insurance companies to make payments more efficient to policyholders in drought areas. Earlier this month, the agency also announced that it would be extending crop insurance deadlines to give producers more time to pay their administrative fees and premiums. In addition, the agency also permitted approved insurance providers to waive interest fees on written payment agreements for another 60 days.

Producers of hemp who hold crop insurance policies should contact their agents if they notice any damage in order to give the insurance companies time to appraise their crop prior to replanting or cutting. It should be noted, however, that most insurance companies don’t provide crop insurance for outdoor growing fields, despite the fact that all insurance is considered to be disaster insurance.

Most insurance agents sell both private and federal insurance policies, which means they possess the tools to help hemp farmers develop custom programs. Elite Risk Insurance Solutions owner Jeff Kleid states that insurance solutions are often based on gathering direct feedback from growers, which is combined with accumulated data.

For lower-level coverage and smaller farmers, creating custom coverage programs is a good option while larger hemp growers may benefit from a hybrid program, which may have high-deductible plans.

Private policies usually include inventory, equipment coverage, product liability and living plant coverage. Farmers are allowed to add different weather events and crop coverages for disasters to their policies as well.

When acquiring insurance, farmers should keep in mind that insurance companies are more willing to cover disaster events such as wildfire for indoor hemp growers operating in warehouses or greenhouses.

Established players in the CBD/hemp sector such as Golden Triangle Ventures Inc. (OTC: GTVH) know all too well that a ruined crop will not yield high-quality products, so every effort must be made toward ensuring that the crop is given all the care and protection required.

420 with CNW — National Hemp Association Requests $1B from Congress to Boost Industry Innovation

America’s hemp industry may be young, but it is brimming with potential just a couple of years after the 2018 Farm Bill legalized the cultivation and sale of hemp and its derivatives. But while the American hemp industry was valued at $5.66 billion in 2020 and is projected to see major growth over the next decade, it hasn’t received much government support. And given that hemp is a versatile product with a wide variety of applications ranging from cloth, cosmetics, and rope to printer’s ink, wood preservative and a construction material called hempcrete, government investment could turn the nascent hemp sector into a juggernaut.

As such, a national hemp trade organization that claims to represent 90% of Americans with state hemp licenses has asked the leadership of the U.S. House of Representatives to include $1 billion in funding to support hemp innovation and research in a budget reconciliation legislation. According to a letter written by the National Hemp Association (“NHA”) to leading lawmakers, the funding would help prop up the young industry as it tries to find its footing. The proposed amendment would allocate money to allow federal officials to “empower hemp farmers, processors, and related businesses” to help them compete globally, sequester a lot of carbon, repair contaminated soil, and provide funding and job opportunities to underserved communities, among others.

In a press release, NHA chair Geoff Whaling said that America has always been the catalyst for global change, be it industrial, cultural or environmental. With the world battling heat waves and wild fires thanks to more than a century of human industrialization, America could lead the charge in finding solutions for this global threat. “American ingenuity” will drive many of those solutions, he says, and hemp will be at the forefront of the plant-based technologies that help combat the greenhouse gas emissions crisis. Hemp has the potential to clean out the air and soil, introduce new sustainable products, and help create new jobs as the world tries to recover from the coronavirus recession.

Of the proposed $1 billion fund, $100 million apiece would go to regional super sites for hemp production in New York, Michigan and Oregon, as well as $120 million for farms in historically underserved communities; the remaining $380 million will be divided according to hemp farm-acreage calculations. The hemp industry may be young, but it has plenty of potential, the letter says, and hemp may inadvertently help in the development of infrastructure and new markets.

Supporting the U.S. hemp industry and making it more competitive on the global scale may open up a whole new set of opportunities for companies such as The Alkaline Water Company Inc. (NASDAQ: WTER) (CSE: WTER), which are already thriving under the existing conditions.

420 with CNW — Report Finds Young People’s Views on Cannabis Use Is Changing

As more states across the country legalize cannabis for recreational use, attitudes toward the use of cannabis is changing. A report that was recently released by the National Institute on Drug Abuse has found that the number of young individuals who view the use of cannabis as risky behavior has decreased.

According to the report, young individuals believe that in comparison to the occasional use of cannabis, vaping cannabis is riskier. They also think that experimenting with other drugs, including LSD, sedatives, heroin or cocaine, is riskier than experimenting with cannabis.

The National Institute on Drug Abuse has been tracking the attitudes of young people and adults since the late 1970s. The Institute (“NIDA”), which is under the National Institutes of Health, began including teens in the eighth and ninth grades from 1991.

Over time, the number of young people who view the regular, occasional or experimental use of marijuana as not a big deal has increased. Last year, the percentage of young individuals that viewed the use of cannabis as risky hit an all-time low. The institute also found that individuals aged between 19 and 30 who used cannabis in the past year, in the past 30 days or daily was currently at its highest.

Data collected last year showed that nearly 10% of young individuals used cannabis almost daily or daily last month, 27% used cannabis at least once last month and more than 40% used the plant at least once in the past year. NIDA also found that vaping cannabis had been increasing since 2017. However, this trend didn’t continue into 2020, with NIDA noting that the prevalence of vaping cannabis both in August of this year and in 2020 reduced to 11% and 20% respectively.

The National Institute on Drug Abuse found that individuals aged 19 to 22 as well as those in their mid-20s were more likely to vape cannabis. The Institute also found that the use of cannabis reduced with age, with the plant’s use being most prevalent in people aged 21 to 26. The percentage of grownups who use cannabis monthly or yearly at age 50 was roughly 17% while only 11% of individuals aged 60 and above used cannabis.

Additionally, men aged 19 to 30 were more likely to use cannabis every day in comparison with women. Men in this age bracket were also more likely to have vaped cannabis, in comparison to women. College students were also found to be less likely to use cannabis when compared with their peers who weren’t attending college.

These changing attitudes towards marijuana are likely to get even more people using the substance for medicinal purposes, thereby increasing interest in the latest devices, such as those made by RYAH Group Inc., which ease the use of plant-based medicines.
