On November 6, 2012, Colorado passed Amendment 64, which led to the legalization of the recreational use of cannabis, becoming the envy of our country. Contained within Amendment 64 were guidelines on the personal use, growth, and sale of marijuana that would become legal on January 1, 2014. Also contained within said Amendment is Section 5(j) which states that “not later than July 1, 2014, the General Assembly shall enact legislation governing the cultivation, processing, and sale of Industrial Hemp.” July 1, 2014 came and so did the 2014 Farm Bill enacted by President Obama, and off the hemp industry went.
Regulation of Industrial Hemp in Colorado
The Colorado Department of Agriculture defines Industrial Hemp as “a plant of the genus cannabis and any part of the plant, whether growing or not, containing a delta-9 tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) concentration of no more than three-tenths of one percent (0.3%) on a dry weight basis. The Department of Agriculture regulates only the cultivation of industrial hemp, not the processing, sale, or distribution.

What is Hemp?
Once the regulations of Industrial Hemp were established, people got to work studying and researching everything there was to know about hemp. A common misconception is that marijuana and hemp are the same things, but it’s simply not true. Hemp is a varietal of the cannabis plant, as is marijuana and both contain THC. However, hemp does not produce enough THC to have the intoxication effect of marijuana and produces high levels of CBD that have been shown to be beneficial to both physical and mental health. Because of this, hemp is now legal in all fifty states, while recreational marijuana is legal in only eleven.
It’s the “Nature” of the Business
With the legalization of hemp nationwide, there is no shortage of products, but Colorado got a head start. One of the leading producers of CBD products in Colorado is RAD Extracts.
