An exciting week for the hemp industry!
Governor Jared Polis visited Front Range Biosciences’ Denver Greenhouse to sign two monumental bills regarding hemp regulations in Colorado. These two bills are the SB19-220 Hemp Regulation Alignment With 2018 Federal Farm Bill and the SB19-240 Industrial Hemp Products Regulation.
The signing of these bills establishes standards for commercial hemp products and will align CO’s hemp regulations with the federal regulations outlined in the 2018 Farm Bill. This positioning ensures compliancy with upcoming federal regulations and allows CO’s program to successfully scale its growth trajectory. The legislation will also optimize the industry as a whole and pave the way for other states interested in developing hemp regulations in their own state. In addition, it will also improve the education and interest for this emerging industry and generate jobs for the workforce, supplying opportunities for our community.
On Friday, May 31, we will be in Washington D.C. where our CEO and Co-founder, Dr. Jonathan Vaught, will be speaking at the FDA’s public hearing in support of the industries who will thrive with the commercialization of cannabis and cannabis-derived compounds. To learn more about Dr. Vaught’s testimony to the FDA, watch the video of his recording here.
