    Pbs065_”HOT” Hemp

    The Farm Bill’s legalization of hemp has led to a boom in production of CBD & hemp products - but the gray definition of hemp as “less than 0.3% THC by weight” has caused some serious issues & concerning loopholes. We discuss the legal headache of hemp that “goes hot” by producing too much THC, and how Oregon legislators are trying to address the problem to relieve the burden on hemp farmers.

Top Drawer information and presentation

I am currently navigation the cannabis market in Austin Texas attempting to launch my CPG line of animal biscuits. Having gone to several of Naturally Austin and SKU, the excellent incubator groups in Austin’s, presentations on CBD (THC is still not consumer available in Texas) I have noticed the well intended presentations have been “pop culture” at best. The experts have ranged from superficial to “hey kids let’s smoke weed under the big tree at lunchtime,” in their knowledge.
Periodic Effects has done an excellent job in presenting science, relevant business and professional perspectives, while addressing the critical industry topics for those wanting to make a living, while brining this valuable medicinal product to the general public.
I have encouraged everyone seriously interested in investigating the market in Central and South Texas to tune in and get caught up!
Well done guys your service is much appreciated

Really love this

Very informative, so far really good topics.
I’d like to see more and more terpene discussions, along with CBD and pets, THC-V, CBG, and some helpful tips for moving topical products.
