The hemp and CBD industry is growing rapidly. Announcements of new products, international mergers, and celebrity endorsements are made daily. Hemp and CBD dispensaries have popped up throughout NC. Hemp has been described as the crop that will save American farmers and CBD as a compound that will aid health issues ranging from epilepsy to anxiety to cancer.

Underpinning the industry is a complex web of rapidly evolving laws and regulations at the federal and state level, many of which are in conflict. This creates nuanced issues of federalism and preemption. Much of the legal framework that will eventually control the industry has not been implemented and is rolling out in “real time” month by month as the industry grows. In this CLE, attorney Rod Kight will provide a “Hemp and CBD 101” overview of the legal foundations that support the industry, present and address some of the most important emerging legal issues, and discuss practical insights to representing hemp and CBD companies that he has gained over the past several years.
