Under the Hemp Production and the 2018 Farm Bill, hemp was removed from the definition of marijuana in the Controlled Substances Act (CSA). The new bill defined hemp as cannabis (Cannabis sativa L.) and derivatives of cannabis with extremely low concentrations of the psychoactive compound delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) no more than 0.3 percent THC on a dry weight basis. This means that Hemp has the lower concentration of THC (tetrahydrocannabidiol) and higher concentration of other cannabinoids like CBD (cannabidiol), which decreases or eliminates its psychoactive effects.
