This presentation will provide an in-depth review of Federal hemp and hemp product rules and regulations and discuss how New York’s proposed hemp cannabinoid regulations fit into the Federal scheme. We will provide an overview of the highlights and hurdles of New York’s proposed rules and the impact these consumer-focused regulations will have on the national hemp and CBD landscape.
Key topics to be discussed:
• 2018 Farm Bill and USDA’s Interim Final Rule
• DEA’s Interim Final Rule regarding hemp products and hemp extracts
• New York oversight and New York State Department of Health’s proposed hemp cannabinoid regulations
• High compliance burden on all NY retailers – including online retailers selling hem products to NY residents – imposed by NY’s new rules.
