Opportunities at the Intersection of Hemp and Marijuana

Hemp and marijuana are one plant but are treated very differently under state and federal laws, creating confusion and risk for cannabis businesses interested in manufacturing and selling hemp products in licensed dispensaries. What happens when you try to manufacture a marijuana product using a hemp ingredient, or sell a hemp CBD product at your dispensary? Can you convert hemp-derived CBD isolate into delta-9 THC? Are hemp-derived delta-8 THC products regulated by the state hemp agency or the marijuana agency? The answers depend on the state. Attend this session for a timely update on the intersection of hemp and marijuana across the U.S., including which states allow the manufacture and sale of hemp ingredients and products by marijuana operators. In light of recent legalization across the tri-state region, the panelists will emphasize opportunities and the practical application of hemp and marijuana regulations in New York, New Jersey, and Connecticut. 

Learning Objectives

  • Uncover and discuss opportunities for hemp and marijuana businesses.
  • Understand the legality of utilizing hemp ingredients and the ability to sell hemp products in dispensaries.
  • Analyze the laws in the tri-state region, including what will be permissible in New York, New Jersey, and Connecticut.
  • Deep dive into the practical details on how to navigate what is actually required – track/trace, additional licenses, transport permits, etc.
