Pioneering the Hemp Industry in the United States
How is Ananda Hemp Different?
1ST TO CHANGE LEGISLATION
Ananda Hemp is changing global legislation to allow hemp products to be sold. Brian Furnish, an 8th generation farmer, is Ananda Hemp’s head of Global Farming and Production. He worked with various Congressmen and Senator Mitch McConnell to pass the 2014 Farm Bill which included Section 7606—allowing hemp to be grown. Brian has been instrumental in changing legislation for the hemp industry. Without his efforts, no one would be able to grow hemp in the United States.
In 2017 Brian has been working with Congressman James Comer of Kentucky to completely remove hemp from the DEA’s controlled substance list. Although hemp products are legal in all 50 states, having hemp itemized as a controlled substance by the DEA has created confusion.
