Is CBD Oil legal in 2020? Yes! However, there are a few caveats. Read here for the definitive guide to CBD's legal status in 2020.

The Senate and the House passed the 2018 Farm Bill. Now, the bill will be transferred to The White House where President Trump will soon sign it into law. It will become effective immediately in January 2019.

It's been a blissful day for our company, and the entire hemp industry. For the first time since we began farming hemp in Kentucky in 2014, we can confidently say hemp is permanently, undoubtedly, 100% LEGAL and HERE TO STAY!

Senator Rand Paul toured Ananda Hemp facilities with CEO, Eric Wang. Since entering the political scene in 2010, Senator Rand Paul has been at the forefront of the initiative to legalize hemp. Today, Paul affirmed his support of the hemp industry and Kentucky farmers during his visit to Ananda's manufacturing facility in Cynthiana, Kentucky.

Although we have to wait even longer to hear the outcome of the 2018 Farm Bill and whether or not it will legalize, Congress has confirmed that the hemp pilot program regime, passed in the 2014 Farm Bill, will remain in place. This means Ananda Hemp will continue manufacturing legal hemp-derived CBD products as usual.

Sen. Mitch McConnell originally introduced a stand-alone hemp legalization bill earlier this year, which then picked up support from both Democratic and Republican senators. Since then, the bill was incorporated into the omnibus 2018 Farm Bill, a piece of must-pass legislation.

This morning, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell held a press conference at our hemp facilities in Cynthiana. Senator McConnell was joined by Kentucky Commissioner of Agriculture, Ryan Quarles to speak on their continued support for hemp production in Kentucky.

This morning Senate Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) took the Senate floor to introduce the Hemp Farming Act of 2018. This bill would permanently legalize hemp, removing it from the Controlled Substances Act, and establish it as an agricultural commodity. 
Ananda Hemp commended U.S. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell upon his announcement of the pending introduction of "The Hemp Farming Act of 2018." Leader McConnell's bill, which is co-sponsored by U.S. Senators Ron Wyden (D-OR) and Rand Paul (R-KY), would permanently remove hemp from regulation as a controlled substance and treat it as an agricultural commodity. 
US Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has been a tremendous ally to Industrial Hemp in KY. While McConnell didn't initially take a stance in favor of Industrial Hemp, he was won over by efforts from Senator Rand Paul and then KY AG Commissioner James Comer.
Representative Thomas Massie is dedicated to the Industural Hemp cause. He is one of many politicians working across party lines to rebuild the agriculture industry in the Bluegress.

Back in the early days, before Ananda Hemp started in earnest, KY AG Commissioner James Comer was one of the key figures in returning hemp to Kentucky. What has James Comer been up to since then? Well, he went to Washington.
