The 2018 Farm Bill has been signed into law. As of Dec. 20, industrial hemp — defined as all parts of the plant having less than 0.3 percent THC — is federally legal. This includes “derivatives,” “extracts” and “cannabinoids.” Kentucky, historically the nation’s top manufacturer of hemp, launched an innovative pilot program for farmers in 2014. This program was a basis for the hemp section of the law and should make Kentucky the epicenter of hemp in the United States.
