After years of wrangling, the U.S. Congress stands on the verge of legalizing the cultivation of industrial hemp.
- Hemp is a variety of the cannabis sativa plant that doesn’t generate a psychoactive effect.
- Traditionally used to produce cloth and rope, hemp can also now be used in wellness products and food.
- Competing legislations by the House and Senate are being aligned with an anticipated September 30 deadline.
- The legalization of hemp has cross-party support and appears likely to pass.
The expected change in U.S. law will be beneficial for companies such as Marijuana Company of America, Inc. (OTC: MCOA) (MCOA Profile), which is already invested in industrial hemp and support for hemp growers. Across the border, Canopy Growth Corp. (NYSE: CGC) has established acres of Canadian hemp cultivation and gained financial backing that would support huge growth. Aurora Cannabis, Inc. (OTCQX: ACBFF) has also received substantial funding in the past few months, which will help its ongoing expansion effort. Hemp cultivation will provide plentiful CBD to be used by companies such as CV Sciences, Inc. (OTC: CVSI) as an ingredient in a wide and growing range of health and wellness products. All this growth is aided by support companies such as Terra Tech Corp. (OTC: TRTC), which provides equipment for cannabis cultivators.
