On Wednesday, California Gov. Gavin Newsom signed a bill that is expected to expand the state’s hemp industry by legalizing retail sales of consumable hemp products. The AB 45 bill states that non-intoxicating cannabinoids (including CBD) can be legally sold as dietary supplements and as ingredients in food and beverages.

Although the bill offers a foundation for smokable hemp in California, lawmakers must establish a tax system and regulations before these products are available to the public. Until then, hemp producers can officially begin growing and manufacturing smokeable products for sale in other states.

As of now, the California Department of Public Health will be creating rules and regulations to kick start retail sails, including CBD cosmetic products and pet food/treats.

In a recent interview with the U.S. Hemp Roundtable, assemblywoman and sponsor of the bill Cecilia Aguiar-Curry mentioned that she was excited to bring reform after witnessing the sale of hemp products and realizing that there weren’t enough regulations to guarantee consumer safety.

“I knew that there was a need, and I knew that we needed to make sure that the products were safe and have been tested and had good labeling,” she said.

Executive director of the California Cannabis Industry Association, Lindsay Robinson, explained her excitement in a recent press release.

“We cannot thank the author enough for her tireless and unparalleled work to get comprehensive hemp regulations passed,” she said. “Assemblymember Aguiar-Curry has been steadfast in her approach to creating a level playing field between cannabis and hemp while protecting the health and safety of all Californians.”
