Iowa lawmakers to discuss hemp regulations in Jan
After the US Congress approved hemp production in the 2018 Farm Bill, many farmers are eager to start planting and therefore, the Iowa attorney general and state agriculture officials will meet in January to discuss state regulations for hemp. Advocates worry slow action or tough restrictions may hurt producers’ abilities to economically exploit the crop.

Hemp comes from the same plant as marijuana but doesn’t contain THC, the compound that causes a high. Hemp is used in clothing, textiles, building materials, paper and food.

An issue Iowa lawmakers may consider is whether to allow hemp to be used to make cannabidiol, also known as CBD. Advocates say CBD can treat anxiety, epilepsy and depression, according to a report in a newspaper in Iowa state.

While the US Government allows hemp-derived CBD, Iowa’s medical marijuana law doesn’t allow CBD to be processed from industrial hemp. CBD can be produced and distributed only through the Iowa Department of Public Health licensing program. (DS)
