DALLAS, Dec. 11, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Rocky Mountain High Brands, Inc. (OTCQB: RMHB), a fully reporting lifestyle brand management company specializing in high-quality health and wellness products, announced today that it has been accepted as a member of the board of the U.S. Hemp Roundtable (www.hempsupporter.com), a coalition of dozens of companies and major national grassroots organizations advocating for the full and permanent legalization of hemp in the United States.
Hemp, also known as "industrial hemp", refers to varieties of the cannabis sativa plant with very low levels of the psychoactive compound, tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) (commonly defined as less than 0.3% concentration of THC) and a key input for the production of a vast array of consumer and industrial products. Hemp is also a source of cannabidiol (CBD), a compound that has become increasingly popular among consumers both nationwide and worldwide to improve their general health and wellness.
Michael Welch, President and Chief Executive Officer of Rocky Mountain High Brands, Inc., stated, “We were pleased to be approved to join the Board of Directors of the U.S. Hemp Roundtable and are anxious to participate in the important work that they do in promoting hemp and CBD legislation at the Federal and State levels. With the 2018 U.S. Farm Bill anticipated to pass soon, there is still a lot of work to be done, both at the FDA and at the State level. Forty states have passed hemp legislation, leaving more to rally, including Texas. We are also looking forward to creating relationships with other key players in the industry through this affiliation.”
About the U.S. Hemp Roundtable
Launched in early 2017, the U.S. Hemp Roundtable is a coalition of more than fifty hemp companies – representing every link of the product chain, from seed to sale – and all of the industry's major national grassroots organizations. Its primary goal is to secure passage of bi-partisan legislation in the U.S. Congress that would establish hemp as an agricultural commodity, and permanently remove it from regulation as a controlled substance. Its efforts include an aggressive, targeted, grass-tops lobbying campaign that brings leading farmers and business executives to Washington to secure final passage of the Hemp Farming Act of 2018.
In order to build political support – and ensure the long-term viability of the industry – the Roundtable's mission also includes:
- Facilitating information exchange with law enforcement and federal agency officials
- The seeding and infrastructure development of an independent, self-regulatory organization (SRO), including the drafting of regulatory-acceptable specifications and standards
- Continued long-term legislative advocacy on other major policy issues, remaining vigilant against potential attempts of rival industries to halt hemp's progress
