Guide to December CBD Oil Conference in Newburgh
Posted in CBD Oil | Last Updated April 6, 2020
A one-day, two-part conference: December 6, 2019
A comprehensive one day conference will be held at the Newburgh Armory Unity Center in Newburgh, N.Y. regarding CBD oil.
CBD oil is derived from industrial hemp, and when the 2018 Farm bill was signed in December of 2018, it was declassified: cannabis plants and their derivatives (for instance extracts or oil) that contain no more than 0.3 percent THC on a dry weight basis are no longer controlled substances under federal law.
Many questions surround the emerging industries and healthcare treatments that are developing as a result of this decriminalization and resulting commercial activity, not the least of which is: what are the healthcare benefits?

Some background information in advance of the conference: CBD in the USA
The 2018 Farm Bill
In 2018, the U.S. Government passed a comprehensive farm bill into law known as the 2018 Farm Bill.
The Bill, a sweeping piece of legislation, notably legalized hemp cultivation and declassified hemp as a Schedule I controlled substance. The new law changed certain federal regulations.
As long as a hemp byproduct did not have more than 0.3 percent THC on a dry weight basis it and any associated byproducts were no longer considered controlled substances under federal law.
With this change came the potential of tremendous new markets and many potential new businesses.
The possibilities may sweep across economic clusters, from healthcare to beauty products and beyond, the market impact is anticipated to be profound.
Hemp and Marijuana
Both hemp and marijuana are varieties of the same species of plant, Cannabis sativa, but from different cultivars.
Not only are Hemp and marijuana distinct from one another genetically,they are also differentiated by their use as well as their chemical composition.
In addition, different cultivation practices are involved in their production.
Marijuana usually means the cultivated plant commonly used as a psychotropic drug, either medicinally or recreationally, it can be smoked, consumed in a tincture, an edible, or a capsule, etc.,
Hemp, on the other hand, is grown for use in the production of many products, including food and food ingredients, ingredients for body care and personal care products, such as cosmetics or as nutritional supplements, for beverages and for fabrics and textile, paper, construction materials, and other manufacturing goods.
CBD In Orange County
According to the Times Herald Record: “Orange County farmers are projected to grow one-third to one-half of the CBD hemp that will be harvested in the Hudson Valley this first year of explosive interest in the crop.
“Our preliminary surveys indicate there’s 500 to 700 acres of hemp in Orange County of the 1,100 to 1,500 acres that have been planted in the Hudson Valley,″ said Maire Ullrich, agricultural program leader at Cornell Cooperative Extension Orange County. “And about 60 to 80 percent of that is in the Black Dirt.
In comparison, the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Farm Service Agency reported 2,654 acres were planted in the Black Dirt region’s signature onions last year.”
