CDB flowers are the most inexpensive way to obtain CBD product, (dollar-per-milligram, for people to get CBD,) per Jeffrey Shelton, co-owner of Happy Daze Smoke Shop, .It is currently a legal smokeable CBD product in Indiana but could become illegal under the proposed bill. CBD oil would remain legal.
David Williams reported in his article, Smokable CBD products could become illegal under Senate hemp bill
State Sen. Randy Head, a Republican from Logansport, said, “I think that having the flower be possessed only by a licensed farmer, producer or seller is an important piece. I’m trying to work on the other parts.”
Head said law enforcement has asked to ban the flower that’s now legal. That’s because it’s tough for police to tell the difference between marijuana and CBD flowers.
“Law enforcement often doesn’t know what they’re looking at,” the senator said. “Is this hemp or is this marijuana, for instance? You have people who could hide marijuana inside a hemp product or could get a container they bought legal hemp in and put marijuana inside it and transport it. We don’t want those things to happen.”
The article also states, “The measure has been referred to the House Committee on Agriculture and Rural Development. No hearing has been set for the measure.
The state senator said Monday he has also heard from upset people in the CBD industry and plans to meet with them. ‘I can’t promise that everybody’s going to be happy, but I’m going to try to find a solution if we can do that.’
Alonzo Calloway with the Indy Hemp Co. in Indianapolis said in a statement Monday:
“‘We here at Indy Hemp Company recognize the economic growth potential for hemp as a crop. Putting restrictions on certain products will only hinder this growth. CBD flower is a fast intake method with a great deal of benefits for many consumers. With a collaborative effort from local businesses, law enforcement, and state officials there must be a better approach than banning any CBD products/intake methods. We recommend stores to provide customers with a copy of the Indiana compliant certificate of analysis, a copy of the receipt, a product that has a quality tamper-proof seal, and suggest using the product at home’.”
