Hemp producers will now have more freedom under the new policies regarding acceptable THC levels before they are declared criminally negligent. The margin of error for federally mandated THC levels has increased from 0.5% to 1%. Hemp farmers and testing agents can also get a longer time frame to harvest crops just after testing, with […]

Hemp Foods have been made LEGAL today

Hemp Foods have been made LEGAL today!! This is an amazing result for Australia. We have finally caught up with the rest of the world, and it will have great results on lots of levels, for your health, as hemp is nutritious, and also for the farmers who now have a sustainable and viable crop to grow. Here at ‘Hemp Co’ we are on target to grow Hemp this year, that will now have a dual purpose. Fibre for our building materials to build houses and seeds for our Food products. It’s a win win all round, not just for here in the South West of WA, but for the whole of Australia. It’s been a long 20 years of lobbying government! Common sense has finally prevailed.

Medicinal Marijuana given the Green Light. …

Medicinal Marijuana given the Green Light.

As you may already know, our Health Minister Greg Hunt announced yesterday, companies will be permitted to apply to distribute cannabis oils and medications locally, establishing an immediate legal marijuana trade. News Corp Australia understands the government has been actively discussing the issue with half a dozen companies who are ready to distribute immediately.
Due to no available legal market in Australia, until now they were forced to import medicinal cannabis products from overseas or turn to the black market. Importation from overseas often meant cannabis products were unable to be received for months due to regulatory paperwork and compliance. Patients were also forced to obtain an importation permit for each specific importation from the Therapeutic Goods Administration.

So how does this effect the Industrial Hemp Industry in Australia?
The answer is very little and nothing for industrial hemp farmers.
However, surely now Hemp Foods, should get the Green Light too!!
Let’s see what happens in April.
Hemp Foods would be a very viable industry for our farmers here in Australia.
