Industrial hemp seeding it’s roots in new statesJesse Clymer
Industrial hemp has been a political talking point in Colorado for awhile and now most recently Kentucky. Over the last week it has made headway in Hawaii, West Virginia, and Vermont as well. All three states have bills introduced to legalize industrial hemp within their respective states. Hawaii’s bill aims at allowing industrial hemp to be grown on a research scale to allow for more informed decisions on in in the future. This is following a very similar path to how Hawaii approached it many years ago to grow a small crop for research purposes. West Virginia’s bill is to remove the requirement for federal approval to obtain a license for industrial hemp. This obviously does not solve the issue on a federal level, but every bit is a step in the right direction. Vermont’s bill is to allow the growth of industrial hemp without the need for federal approval, similar to West Virginia’s bill. As more states move bills through dealing with industrial hemp, it helps call attention on the federal level to the issue at hand.
On the Hemp Authority front, we have been plugging away at getting out Summer launch ready to roll. In May we will be giving away a lot of product samples through our social media sites, so make sure to follow us there! We have also been receiving an increased number of requests for resale, wholesale, and affiliate information. We will continue to work on these on a case by case basis, but fear not, and entire portal for these things is in the works. Our summer line will be augmented with an affiliate program for the products, so by the end of summer at the latest we will have some form of portal set up for people to explore if they are interested in those avenues. We really appreciate the interest and it really excites us that people are already asking about being a part of everything! Once our portal is up and the affiliate program is good to go, we will make sure to give preference to those who have previously inquired first!
