Innovative hemp and cannabis corporation Marijuana Company of America (OTC: MCOA) this morning announced its optimism with recent passage of the 2018 Farm Bill. Under the bill, the industrial hemp plant and its extracts, including Cannabidiol (“CBD”), containing less than 0.3 percent of THC, will no longer be labeled as a Schedule 1 Drug and will be made a legal commodity, enabling U.S. cultivation and distribution subject to compliance with Farm Bill provisions and associated federal and state regulations and licensing. Per the update, the Brightfield Group’s Hemp CBD Report of 2018 projects that, with passage of the Farm Bill, the market is expected to reach $22 billion by 2022, outpacing the rest of the combined cannabis market. “MCOA and our subsidiaries are anxious to take full advantage of opportunities that passage of the Farm Bill provides to the Company,” MCOA CEO Donald Steinberg stated in the news release. “2019 will be a year of international expansion for our hempSMART product line. We believe the new Farm Bill may also establish a precedence for other countries worldwide to adopt similar laws, which will allow us the opportunity to expand more internationally.”
