CBD Made Illegal by DEA

Grow Contractors CBD Oil

Great… I suppose there had to be something to slow down the amazing growth we’ve been having in this industry, and here it is. The DEA has officially changed their definition of a marijuana extract from specifically banning THC to: “an extract containing one or more cannabinoids that has been derived from any plant of the genus Cannabis, other than the separated resin (whether crude or purified) obtained from the plant.” They’ve basically grouped it into the Schedule 1 Classification, along with THC.

This puts a huge dent into the business model of many drop-ship companies. Many of these companies have been supplying medical-grade CBD to patients in need. I personally have family that needs CBD that has been imported from out of state, now what are we to do?

“Once again, the federal government has shown that it has not caught up with modern science,” says Nate Bradley, executive director of the California Cannabis Industry Association. “It’s common knowledge that CBD has numerous medical uses, including curbing the effects of epilepsy and reducing muscle inflammation from injuries. To deny that shows a complete disregard for the facts.” I’d personally have to agree because I’ve seen how it helps people first hand.

Obviously, our community isn’t happy, there’s even a Denver law firm considering a lawsuit against the DEA.

I guess for now people will be forced to get their medication from the black market. It was nice while it lasted. I saw a flourishing CBD market, people being helped. Miraculous Youtube videos on the healing power of CBD. And a wonderful community emerge.

Cannabis Election Day!

How did you vote this year? With so many states considering cannabis laws, how much longer can federal prohibition continue? Some of these proposed laws just aren’t fair to the cannabis community. In California, we see Amendment 64 being biased towards corporate interests, as well as creating new crimes for simple possession of cannabis. This
