The big news out of the 2018 US Farm Act was that hemp became decriminalized at the federal level. Obviously, this makes it a whole lot easier to move hemp-related goods, seeds, and plants across North America. Plus, researchers no longer have as much difficulty testing the many cannabinoids and terpenes found in different hemp strains.
The broader reach of Ventura Seed Company’s operation means there are usually hemp seeds available for purchase no matter the time of year.

This doesn’t mean, however, that hemp laws are the same in every state. Indeed, there are a few states that ban the cultivation and/or use of hemp, and some truck drivers have faced jail time for transporting high-CBD strains across state lines.

Due to its popularity in the hemp community, almost all Californian seed banks today supply premium feminized Cherry Wine seeds. Other high-CBD strains that do well in California include Ringo’s Gift, AC/DC, Cannatonic, and Stephen Hawking Kush.
