Watch my in-depth conversation with Lukas Gilkey of Hometown Hero about hemp and cannabis issues, including the Civil War between Big Marijuana and the Hemp Industry.

I recently got an opportunity to discuss a wide range of current cannabis issues, including the international cannabis trade and the US battle between hemp and Big Marijuana, with Sean Hocking of the Karma Koala Podcast. Despite the heady issues, our conversation was casual and I even got to choose three songs to accompany the podcast.
Although I do not always agree with the DEA’s view on cannabis matters, I agree with its opinion on THCO and, frankly, am not surprised. This is what I have been saying for a while.

In this video podcast, Rod Kight discusses THCa, the 2023 Farm Bill, international cannabis law, and other important and emerging issues in the cannabis and hemp industry with JD McCormick, founder of the American Healthy Alternatives Association.
In this podcast, Rod discusses the current state of hemp and marijuana in North Carolina with industry experts Bert James and Dr. Guochen Yang for the Charlotte Talks podcast on NPR station WFAE (90.7 FM).
In this keynote speech Rod addresses perils facing the hemp industry, including the threat posed by Big Marijuana, cannabis associations that purport to advocate for hemp while promoting corporate marijuana interests, and the current crisis for hemp in NC. Rod also discusses important federal law issues and practical recommendations for the hemp industry.
The Source Rule, which says that the source of a cannabinoid determines its legal status, is embedded into the legal fabric of the cannabis industry. In this article I respond to arguments claiming that the Source Rule is dead and show that, far from dead, it is now more relevant than ever.
Since the DEA’s Seed Letter became public I have fielded a number of calls from clients about selling cannabis seeds. Everyone wants to know if it is possible to sell cannabis seeds and other low-THC cannabis materials, such as cannabis clones, and stay out of legal trouble. The answer is, “It depends”.
