Veritas Farms Joins U.S. Hemp Roundtable Board of Directors

Fort Lauderdale, Florida, Aug. 21, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- via NEWMEDIAWIRE -- Veritas Farms, Inc. (VFRM), a vertically integrated agribusiness focused on the production of full spectrum hemp oil products with naturally occurring cannabinoids, is pleased to announce that the Company has been selected as a member of the U.S. Hemp Roundtable Board of Directors.

Launched in early 2017, the U.S. Hemp Roundtable is a coalition of dozens of leading hemp companies – representing every link of the product chain, from seed to sale – and all of the industry’s major national grassroots organizations.  The U.S. Hemp Roundtable has already achieved its primary mission of securing passage of bi-partisan legislation in the U.S. Congress that established hemp federally as an agricultural commodity and permanently removed it from regulation as a controlled substance.

The U.S. Hemp Roundtable’s mission now includes:

    • Focused lobbying efforts in state capitols to fully legalize hemp and popular hemp-derived products like cannabidiol (CBD) 
    • Facilitating information exchange with law enforcement and federal agency officials
    • Continued long-term legislative advocacy on other major policy issues, remaining vigilant against potential attempts of rival industries to halt hemp’s progress
    • Coordination with the US Hemp Authority, whose certification program promotes high standards, best practices and self-regulation, providing confidence to consumers that hemp products are safe and to law enforcement that they are legal

Derek Thomas, Vice President of Business Development at Veritas Farms, commented, “We are proud to be joining the U.S. Hemp Roundtable as a member of its Board of Directors.  Veritas Farms looks forward to collaborating with other member companies to forward the Hemp Roundtable’s important work.  Our continued support of and involvement with visionary organizations like the U.S. Hemp Roundtable will help secure the best possibilities for the future of the American hemp crop and Veritas Farms’ position as an emerging market leader.”
