Legal Source of Hemp and CBD

Posted by Dea Hong on

Agricultural hemp is federally legal due to the Agricultural Act of 2014, better known as the Farm Bill of 2014, as well as the new Farm Bill of 2018. These laws going into effect allowed a whole new market for revenue in the industrial use of hemp.

Is Hemp Making a Comeback in Cars?

Posted by Nate Hemmert on

Recently on an episode of  "Jay Leno's Garage," Jay Leno featured a car that was constructed out of cannabis. Made entirely out of woven hemp fibers and its environmentally friendly engine, this unique and one of a kind 2017 Renew, is a prototype owned by Bruce Dietzen, the former Dell executive, who strongly stands behind his CNBC Interview claim that his hemp car is ten times dent resistant stronger than steel.         If you’ve ever seen The Union – still available on various streaming services – you may have heard Joe Rogan, of UFC and Fear Factor fame, talking about...
