Increased demand for hemp extract products has in turn created a higher demand for information and research about hemp extract products and their effectiveness.

Once the Farm Act of 2018 clarified that hemp extracts contain no psychoactive components, and legalized hemp products, research increased. However, the truth is, we are just at the beginning of this journey. Industry experts report an expected increase in research on hemp extract and information for the general public.
Hemp Products 2021
Demand builds supply and that is true for the hemp industry. 2021 will likely see an increase in hemp extract products, ensuring that everyone who wants to use a hemp product will be able to find an option that works for them. Legalization has enabled hemp producers to pursue different ideas on hemp products and see them through to production. However, the best quality hemp extract products are those which follow strict agricultural, extraction, and purification processes. This may result in a decrease of hemp producers due to the high expense it takes. Consumers may end up with more diverse, higher-quality hemp products at the expense of many careers in the hemp industry.
Hemp Extract Latest News
Two newer changes to hemp production 2021 affect the THC levels and the time frame which farmers can harvest the crop. As of March 22, the USDA raised the THC crop limit from 0.3% to 1%. Additionally, the harvest window has been opened up to 30 days (from 15). This allows hemp farmers to save more of their harvest versus destroying a crop that did not meet regulations.
Something to watch for is the upcoming release of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration’s Cannabidiol Enforcement Policy Draft Guidance, which has fallen to the Biden administration to review. While this may not be a permanent solution, the FDA, government, and other regulatory bodies are working to amend existing hemp extract laws and find solutions that provide a national uniform CBD policy which will help consumers and hemp producers alike.
