Legally hemp in North Dakota

It's almost two years ago Bismarck's Police Department held Terry's Health Products. Now it is back in stock.

The Farm Bill, which was signed into law in December 2018, makes a distinction on hemp from marijuana. Although both come from cannabis plant, hemp has a low percentage of THC, although marijuana has a higher percentage.

Now, hemp is legal under federal law as long as it has an THC level of 0.3 percent or less.

Terry Health Products are again available to customers with hemp and CBD.

“What I wanted to tell everyone was that the products we would be introducing would be legitimate products, good health and well-being,” said owner Lonna Brooks.

Brooks started selling the products in early 2015, following the 2014 farm bill. But in May 2017, the police seized her products, because she was told they were illegal.

“We were confident that 100 per cent were at law at THC level, they were 100 per cent,” Brooks said.

Last December, police told Brooks that she could sell them again, after hemp made by the farm bill with THC levels of 0.3 percent or less, legal. And now, the state is going on. House Bill 1349 is the alignment of the century code with federal law.

“We want to ensure that there are hemp derivatives that do not have high THC content which our local businesses can continue to sell,” said Mr Erin Oban, who is a sponsor of the bill.

Brooks says she was having tears when she discovered that she could sell the products again.

“We've sold dozens of bottles a day since,” said Brooks.

Another bill, House bill 1113, would put hemp into the list of pharmaceutical members of the state pharmacy board. However, THC levels can not be up to 0.1 percent to do the way it wrote.

The house has passed a 1349 Bill and will be heard before the Seanad agriculture committee on Thursday. And, the House passed 1113, and then by the Senate to amend, so it has been returned to the House for consideration.
