In 2015, a change in federal policy legalized the use of CBD extract in cosmetics in China. Like many other countries, China has required that these products contain no more than 0.3% THC. The specific ingredients that are now allowed in Chinese cosmetics include cannabis sativa fruit, cannabis sativa seed oil, and cannabis sativa leaf extract.
As a result of this change, high CBD industrial hemp is in high demand. Industrial hemp contains lower levels of THC than other cannabis plants, which makes it ideal for using in cosmetics under these new laws.
But in order to produce high CBD hemp, you need the right CBD seed. Unfortunately, many China farms are having a difficult time procuring quality hemp seed. There simply isn’t enough to go around. And not all seed on the market is the best quality.
That’s why at CBD Seed Co., we’re taking action to help. Our high CBD hemp seed is now available to all China farms. We believe that proper seed selection is crucial to the success of a hemp farm. Below, we’ve explained the reasons why.
While cannabis is highly regulated by the Chinese federal government, hemp production is not. Laws state that industrial hemp with less than 0.3% THC is exempt from the same restrictions imposed on other cannabis plants. Currently, there is little guidance for farmers in regards to sourcing hemp seed.
Where seed is bought, how it is produced, and whether or not it has been tested is incredibly important for the viability of a hemp farm. The quality of the seed directly affects how much CBD can be extracted from the lot, and, ultimately, how much the farm will profit at the end of the growing season. That’s why it’s so important for farmers in China to be vigilant about seed sourcing as they venture into this new industry.
Being able to procure high quality hemp seed is all about knowing what questions to ask. Here are some important factors to consider:
It should also be noted that there are strict restrictions in China regarding the transporting of hemp seed. Farmers should work closely with their distributor to make sure that their shipment will reach their farm safely without risking legal interference.
