HAPPY WITH HEMP:
The Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services has released the Proposed State Hemp Program Rules. The rules are not expected to be effective until the first week of January 2020. The rules will involve four areas:
1) Food Safety rules (CBD intended for ingestion, hemp food establishment
permits/inspections, processing, manufacturing, distributing, and retailing),
2) Feed Rule (hemp extract in animal feed),
3) Seed Rule (Certified Seed requirement), and
4) Cultivation Rule (This rule will align with the USDA final rules of cultivation).
