Post-farm Bill, Hemp Research Is Here To Stay

Permalink Report to webmaster

Hemp. For decades, it’s the word that conjured up images of threadbare tote bags, homespun jeans, and silver-haired zealots. But those stereotypes are disappearing faster than free CBD oil. Hemp is hip again, but this time it’s down to major investment from the cosmetics, food, and health industries. 

Hemp protein powder, hemp tea, hemp burgers, hemp milk, hemp dog food – the list goes on. At a glance, it might seem as if there isn’t a product left on the market that couldn’t be made “healthier” with hemp. 

But the new “hempire” isn’t just good business for the all-natural entrepreneurs. It’s good news for cannabinoid research, too. 

Naturally high in CBD, the plant has always been a desired subject for researchers and industry developers who were kept pining by federal prohibition. But all that changed last December, when President Trump signed the Agricultural Improvement Act of 2018 into law, also known as the Farm Bill.

Since then, cannabis’ non-psychoactive cousin has been legal in all 50 states and R&D is finally getting off the ground. 


Industrial hemp

“We’re in the process of developing a facility to properly process hemp products and, essentially, create international sellable materials,” says Brian Vifian, director of operations at BAS Research.

As one of the leading cannabis research and manufacturing companies in California, BAS Research is keen to increase its hemp investment post-Farm Bill and join the rapidly growing hemp market. Speaking to Analytical Cannabis, Vifian explained the company’s next big step.
