There’s nothing more American than hemp…
Hemp has an incredible amount of useful applications. Its seeds are used in cooking and cosmetics.
The fibrous stalks are used in building materials and for clothing.
And just like marijuana, the hemp market could generate billions of dollars and create a massive amount of new jobs.
While the 2018 Farm Bill made U.S. hemp farming legal, states still need to submit their hemp farming rules to the USDA to make sure they are complying with federal regulations. That’s why, when the state hemp regulatory plans for Florida were approved by the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA), it was another victory.
The Sunshine State wants to produce “Fresh from Florida” CBD oil and other hemp products, and Florida Agriculture Commissioner Nikki Fried believes this will have a massive impact on the Florida economy.
“By working closely with our farmers, processors, retailers, and consumers, Florida’s state hemp program will become a model for the nation, will set a gold standard for this emerging industry, and will create billions in economic opportunity for Florida,” she said in a press release.
On April 27, @FDACS will begin accepting applications to grow hemp. By working closely with growers, processors, retailers, and consumers, Florida will be the hemp gold standard.

This is another example that, when the right regulations are in place, everyone can win.
