The 2018 Farm Bill, known as the “Agriculture Improvement Act of 2018,” proposes the removal of hemp from the Controlled Substances Act and conferral on the Department of Agriculture authority over hemp, including CBD derived from hemp, and will allow states to be authorized as the primary regulator of hemp grown in their states. Interstate commerce of hemp and CBD derived from hemp will not be restricted.
