News outlet, CBD Snapshot argues that due to the Food and Drug Administration's failure to offer clear and cut guidelines on CBD products, numerous states are now questioning farmers, businesses and consumers regarding CBD and hemp products; not to mention confusing CBD (hemp-derived), with marijuana (heavy in psychoactive properties, i.e. THC).
Hemp Industry Daily has also reported on this matter and has since summarized the legalization of CBD in some of the states, with what's permitted. The bill will now head to Governor Mike DeWine and if he approved the measure it will immediately be made law.
