Kentucky Hemp Company Argues COVID-19 Voids CBD Contract Third Wave Farms is arguing its agreement with Pure Valley Solutions should be terminated because of an uncontrollable event: the coronavirus pandemic.
(CBD, Grower, Hemp, Hemp Farming, Kentucky, Oregon, Processing, United States) Third Wave Farms is arguing its agreement with Pure Valley Solutions should be terminated because of an uncontrollable event: the coronavirus pandemic. Reports Hemp Grower. In a lawsuit over breach of contract, a Kentucky hemp farming company is arguing that its agreement with an Oregon hemp processing company should be terminated because of the novel coronavirus . Third Wave Farms, headquartered in Mount Vernon, Ky., signed a contract with Canby, Ore.-based Pure Valley Solutions in May 2019 to act as a broker for Pure Valley’s winterized cannabidiol (CBD) oil. The contract required Third Wave to sell up to 5,000 liters of it, according to the lawsuit Third Wave Farms, LLC v. Pure Valley Solutions, LLC. In the contract, Third Wave also said it was still working to raise the $2 million it needed to fulfill its agreement. That contract quickly crumbled on both sides. According to the lawsuit, Pure Valley never had the capacity to make 5,000 liters of CBD oil, and the oil it did make...

The 2018 Farm Bill gives the US Department of Agriculture (USDA) regulatory authority over hemp cultivation at the federal level. In turn, states have the option to maintain primary regulatory authority over the crop cultivated within their borders by submitting a plan to the USDA. This federal and state interplay has resulted in many legislative and regulatory changes at the state level. Indeed, most states have introduced (and adopted) bills that would authorize the commercial production of hemp within their borders. A smaller but growing number of states also regulate the sale of products derived from hemp. In light of these legislative changes, we are presenting a 50-state series analyzing how each jurisdiction treats hemp-...

Coronavirus Delays: Where Do Cannabis Bills Stand Across the US?
(Advertising, Alabama, Canada, Cannabis, CBD, Connecticut, Edibles, Kentucky, Law, Legalization, Medical Marijuana, New Hampshire, New York, Pennsylvania, Research, Rhode Island, South Carolina, Tennessee, United States, Vermont, Cultivation) As 2020 kicked off, advocates were pushing for cannabis law reform along the two main tracks: ballot and bill. But just as the signature gathering geared up in anticipation of the November election, and lawmakers were deep in debates, the coronavirus outbreak hit the United States. Now, state governors, lawmakers, and other officials have shifted their energy toward flattening the curve. Whether this spells delay or demise for certain cannabis reform efforts in 2020 remains unknown. Cannabis Wire has reached out to the sponsors of major medical and adult use legislation to see where things stand. Here’s what they had to say. (Editor’s note: There are hundreds of pieces of more incremental cannabis legislation, addressing everything from taxes to advertising, but Cannabis Wire is focusing on bills that would bring, for example, medical or adult use sales to a state for the first time.) ALABAMA Senate Bill 165 would legalize medical cannabis sales; currently, state law allows only for...

Quality in Manufacturing CBD Products: Q&A with the CEO of Medterra
(California, Cannabis, CBD, Food, Growing, Hemp, Kentucky, Management, Manufacturing, Organic, Processing, Production, Products, Regulations, Science, Testing, United States, Industrial Hemp, THC, Cultivation) The Center for Food Safety is a non-profit public interest and environmental advocacy organization. They work to protect public health and the environment by helping curb the use of harmful food production and promoting organic production and other sustainable agriculture practices. Earlier this month, the Center for Food Safety launched a new campaign in the hemp and CBD space: their Hemp CBD Scorecard evaluates some of the widely-known hemp and CBD companies on their production and processing methods, testing protocols and transparency to consumers. Medterra is a CBD products company founded in 2017. They are one of a handful of companies to receive an ‘A’ letter grade on the Center for Food Safety’s Hemp CBD Scorecard.

Hemp Company Atalo Holdings Files for Bankruptcy
(CBD, Consulting, Distribution, Genetics, Growers, Growing, Hemp, Kentucky, Processing, Production, Research, United States, Vertically Integrated, Industrial Hemp, Cultivation) Atalo is at least the third hemp company in Kentucky to file for bankruptcy this year. Another industrial hemp company has filed for bankruptcy at a time when the burgeoning industry is struggling to find its bearings in the face of numerous challenges. Atalo Holdings Inc., based in Winchester, Ky., has filed for Chapter 7 bankruptcy protection, mainly citing issues with capital. The company was one of the first hemp processing companies in Kentucky following the passage of the Agricultural Act of 2014 (the 2014 Farm Bill). The vertically integrated hemp research, production and processing company aimed to develop “reliable pathways to market for consistent hemp CBD [cannabidiol], superfood and fiber with emphasis on traceable, certified seed genetics, proven agronomics, and the mechanization of growing and harvesting,” it says on its website. “Hemp processors, along with our farmers and other partners, have essentially created an entirely new agricultural industry.

The cannabis industry, like other industries, has been upended as the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic worsens. Events have been cancelled. Consumers are stocking up on flower and products. And on Tuesday, one of the largest cannabis companies in the world, Canopy Growth, announced that it would temporarily close nearly two dozen corporate-owned retail shops in Canada. “We have a responsibility to our employees, their families, and our communities to do our part to ‘flatten the curve’ by limiting social interactions. For us, that means shifting our focus from retail to e-commerce,” Canopy Growth CEO David Klein said in a statement. This move puts a spotlight on an early question that cannabis business owners are wrestling with: to close or not to close? Considering that Canada allows for e-commerce, the impact of this “shift in focus” on companies like Canopy is smaller than it would be for a U.S. company. In the U.S., a...

Central Kentucky industrial hemp company files for bankruptcy reports media
(CBD, Genetics, Growing, Hemp, Kentucky, Media, Processing, Research, Science, Tobacco, United States, Industrial Hemp) Kentucky.com……..A Clark County industrial hemp processing company filed for bankruptcy this week, the latest in a string of setbacks in the growing industry . Winchester-based Atalo Holdings , one of Kentucky’s earliest players in the hemp industry, filed for Chapter 7 bankruptcy protection in the Eastern District of Kentucky on Thursday. The company, which markets “hemp superfoods” and “farm fresh hemp CBD,” according to its website, was stymied by “a failed capital commitment, which left the company unable to pay its creditors,” Atalo CEO Bill Hilliard said in a news release. He also cited “’confounding guidance’ from regulatory agencies, unforeseen market forces and other challenges.” Under Chapter 7 bankruptcy protection, the debtor’s assets are sold to pay creditors. Atalo Chairman Andy Graves said in the release that the company’s inability to pay creditors and provide a return for shareholders “is disappointing to say the least,” but that its experience, genetics and partners “...

At a House Agriculture Committee hearing last week, Secretary Sonny Perdue was asked to weigh in on concerns hemp producers have expressed about testing requirements for the crop. Under USDA’s interim final rule as drafted, farmers must use DEA-registered labs to conduct THC testing. Rep. Al Lawson (D-FL) echoed farmers who’ve argued that the restriction would inhibit the market’s growth by creating costly delays. The testing requirement is “making it a little challenging” for producers, he said. Purdue recognized the issue and was quick to note that USDA recently announced it would be temporarily lifting certain provisions , including testing rules, as agencies determine how to streamline the process. But he also indicated that DEA is putting pressure on the department to maintain strict...

Hemp CBD Across State Lines: Pennsylvania
(Alabama, Alaska, Arizona, Arkansas, California, Cannabis, CBD, Colorado, Connecticut, Cosmetics, Delaware, Florida, Foods, Georgia, Growing, Hawaii, Hemp, Idaho, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Law, Louisiana, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Mexico, Michigan, Minnesota, Mississippi, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska, Nevada, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New Mexico, New York, North Carolina, North Dakota, Ohio, Oklahoma, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Production, Products, United States, Industrial Hemp, Cultivation) The Agriculture Improvement Act of 2018 ( 2018 Farm Bill ) legalized hemp by removing the crop and its derivatives from the definition of marijuana under the Controlled Substances Act (CSA) and by providing a detailed framework for the cultivation of hemp. The 2018 Farm Bill gives the US Department of Agriculture (USDA) regulatory authority over hemp cultivation at the federal level. In turn, states have the option to maintain primary regulatory authority over the crop cultivated within their borders by submitting a plan to the USDA. This federal and state interplay has resulted in many legislative and regulatory changes at the state level. Indeed, most states have introduced (and adopted) bills that would authorize the commercial production of hemp within their borders. A smaller but growing number of states also regulate the sale of products derived from hemp. In light of these legislative changes, we are presenting a 50-state series analyzing how each jurisdiction treats hemp-...

Specifically, licensed entities will be able to “import larger quantities of cannabis-based products” and “hold supplies for future use by patients with prescriptions.” Canopy’s bad day.

Canopy Growth announced this week it would close two greenhouse facilities in British Columbia, more than 3 million square feet licensed for cannabis production.

50 State Banking Associations Demand Senate Vote On Marijuana Banking Legislation
(Banking, Cannabis, Compliance, Kentucky, Law, Legal Compliance, Legalization, Products, Puerto Rico, Research, United States, THC, Related Industries) Banking associations from 49 states and Puerto Rico sent a letter to the chairman and ranking member of the Senate Banking Committee on Friday, imploring them to advance a bill protecting financial institutions that service state-legal marijuana businesses. In the letter to Sens. Mike Crapo (R-ID) and Sherrod Brown (D-OH), the groups stressed that they are not taking a stance on the broader question of cannabis legalization but support House-passed legislation preventing federal regulators from penalizing banks solely because they work with marijuana companies. They urged a markup of the Secure and Fair Enforcement (SAFE) Banking Act, was was approved along largely bipartisan lines in the House last year. While more states have moved to legalize cannabis in one form or another, “current federal law continues to prevent banks from safely banking these businesses without fear of federal sanctions,” the associations wrote. “As a result, this segment of our local economies is forced to...
