I updated my popular Ministry of Hemp article on how CBD can help alleviate symptoms of anxiety with some new research from 2020.

Even as CBD’s popularity grows, so does confusion about its legal status and the Food and Drug Administration’s handling of CBD. In reality, the FDA currently does not regulate CBD.
In December, the FDA issued a “consumer update” about the safety CBD. The administration also sent 15 warning letters to CBD brands around the same time. This only added to the tension and confusion. Is CBD safe? Is it legal?
A look at the total number of hemp growing licenses issued this year gives us an important glimpse into the rapidly growing hemp industry.
More people than ever are interested in growing hemp now that the crop is legal. An amendment to the 2018 Farm Bill legalized hemp after decades of prohibition. Even though the Department of Agriculture didn’t issue formal hemp growing guidelines until late October, interest in the crop is already booming.
According to a report by Vote Hemp, U.S. states issued 16,877 hemp growing licenses in 2019, across 34 states, for a total of 511,442 licensed acres. From these numbers, we can learn a lot about the state of hemp in America, and what’s going right or wrong.
If you’ve tried CBD oil and found it beneficial, but you take a lot or use multiple doses in a day, then high potency CBD might be right for you.
In this article, we’re looking only at high potency CBD oil supplements, which we’ve defined as anything with more than 1500mg of CBD per bottle. Using this guideline, we’ve selected 13 of our favorite high-strength hemp-derived CBD tinctures. All of these brands meet our exacting standards for transparency, quality, and accurate labeling.
