Hemp Legislation allows sale of Hemp Products including CBD

Recently, Gov. Mike DeWine signed into law Senate Bill 57. The law makes hemp a legal crop for Ohio farmers to cultivate and process.  Further, the law allows the Ohio Department of Agriculture to create an administrative program and licensing structure for farmers who are interested in growing the crop and those interested in processing it.

Under the new law, it is now legal to sell CBD products in Ohio; however, the Ohio Department of Agriculture is charged to ensure that CBD products are safe and correctly labeled.

Further, the Ohio Department of Agriculture is in the process of developing a license structure to allow farmers to cultivate hemp.  Details of the process are currently being developed, along with rules and regulations.  The goal, however, is that the licenses will be available in time for farmers to plant a crop in Spring 2020.

Painter & Associates is in the process of helping several businesses be positioned not only to sell CBD and related Hemp products in Ohio, but also to begin cultivating it in the Spring of 2020.
