On Wednesday, April 16th, the US Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit Court granted a Motion to Stay to the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration’s (DEA’s) “Final Rule,” which was issued March 21, 2003 (vgl. Meldung vom 2003-03-31.
This was welcome news for the Canadian Hemp sector and its American partners for if this final rule had taken effect, the sale of Canadian-grown hemp foods in the US would have been made much more difficult.
As a legal industry, hemp is regulated by Health Canada under the country’s Industrial Hemp Regulations. These regulations allow for trace content of THC to be present in food. As for the USA of course, America remains the only major industrialized nation to prohibit the growth of industrial hemp, and to date, they have refused to accept Canadian standards.
Consumers are learning to appreciate hemp for its nutrition. Hempseed and hempseed oil are increasingly used in natural food products and interesting research results are beginning to back up many of the good words often said about hempseed.
