Rod Discusses Legal Challenges Facing Hemp and CBD with The CBD Guide (Podcast)
I was recently interviewed by Scott Hawksworth, founder of The CBD Guide podcast. We discussed a number of topics, including:
- My first-hand experience with CBD and my path to representing businesses in the cannabis industry.
- Some of the biggest legal challenges that cannabis businesses face, such as the lack of access to banking, and merchant processing.
- The FDA’s role in the cannabis legal landscape, and how the lack of leadership and regulation has led to complex state-by-state laws CBD companies must navigate.
- The lawful questions surrounding the incorporation of CBD into foods, beverages, and supplements, and the legal boundaries regarding health claims on Hemp products.
- Some of the biggest legal missteps CBD businesses make, and how they can be avoided.
- The various compounds in the cannabis plant other than CBD, and the legality surrounding the production of goods using these different cannabinoids.
- What the near future looks like for hemp and some of the upcoming projects of Kight Law Office.
