DENVER — We are aware of the recent memo issued by the Colorado Department of Health regarding minor cannabinoids and isomers. While we believe the memo was premature on the part of the department, (and considering we just wrapped-up proper and comprehensive rulemaking on the definitions of “Industrial Hemp Products”) it in no way makes any cannabinoid or hemp derivative illegal. We are working with the Department to convene a stakeholder group that will assess the regulatory needs of this new frontier in hemp processing. Our organization has also been working diligently to push back on legislation being brought forth by certain members of the Marijuana industry seeking to ban these hemp products and make their production illegal. Colorado Hemp Association will always strive to advocate for proper and sensible regulatory pathways that continue to treat hemp as a critical agricultural commodity and that the manufacturing and processing of hemp products are safe and regulated.
If you have any further questions, please don’t hesitate to reach out via email email@example.com
Issues like this are why our mission as an organization is so critical and why we need to have matters surrounding hemp continuously represented at the Capitol.
