Check out this very well-written article by The Lawrence Times.
There have been no new laws introduced in the state of Kansas regarding hemp since the 2018 Farm Bill, which states that any product derived from industrial hemp containing less than 0.3% delta-9 THC on a dry-weight basis is legal. We will continue to operate within the current Kansas and Federal law regarding these products.
There are many people confused on the status of hemp flower in the state of Kansas. Although there have been many stores trying to sell it, hemp flower has NEVER been legal to sell to consumers in our state. According to the 2018 Farm Bill:
"(b)(1) It shall be unlawful for any of the following hemp products to be marketed, sold or distributed to any person in Kansas who is not registered as a hemp processor pursuant to K.S.A. 2020 Supp. 2-3907, and amendments thereto, or who does not possess a license by the Kansas department of agriculture under any commercial plan established pursuant to K.S.A. 2020 Supp. 2-3906, and amendments thereto, or the research program established pursuant to K.S.A. 2020 Supp. 2-3902, and amendments thereto: (A) Industrial hemp buds; (B) ground industrial hemp floral material; (C) ground industrial hemp leaf material; or (D) any extract from industrial hemp with a delta-9 tetrahydrocannabinol concentration greater than 0.3% that will be further processed."
This is why you will not find hemp flower being sold at CBD of Lawrence. We have always strived to provide the most comprehensive assortment of hemp-derived cannabinoid products in the area, while staying well within federal and state law.
