Governor DeWine Signs SB 57 Decriminalizing Hemp and Its Derivatives.

CLEVELAND, July 30, 2019 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- ZuRI, A CBD Supply Co., as well as retailers, farmers, universities

and consumers throughout the state of Ohio, are celebrating the approval of Ohio Senate Bill 57 and the relief it brings to the Ohio hemp industry. The new legislation, signed by Governor DeWine on Tuesday at the Ohio State Fair, decriminalizes hemp and hemp products such as CBD, biofuel and other industrial applications, all while providing Ohio farmers an alternative and lucrative crop option.

An emergency clause included in SB 57 allows for the bill to go into effect immediately now that it has been signed by the governor. This means that Ohio retailers can begin selling CBD in their stores without delay and any products previously seized by law enforcement will be released. By lifting all legal ambiguity, retailers and consumers alike will benefit from the promise and popularity that CBD holds for so many.

Scott Raybuck, President and CEO of ZuRI is very optimistic on what this means for Ohio's small business owners and their customers, "Although many Ohio retailers previously sold CBD products, the passage of Senate Bill 57 now allows for them to freely carry these hemp derived CBD items that consumers are demanding."

Additionally, the law now aligns with the federal 2018 Farm Bill by removing hemp as a controlled substance and transferring authority of the State's hemp program to the Ohio Department of Agriculture.

Ohio farmers may apply for cultivation licenses and, once details of the state's hemp cultivation program are finalized, will be able to plant their first crops this spring. Universities, like Ohio State, will not be required to hold licenses and are excited to begin their own cultivation and research in hopes of broadening the myriad of diverse uses for hemp.
