Recent passage of the U.S. Farm Bill has the potential to generate some upside for the little-known hemp CBD stocks that we have discovered
SmallCapPower | February 6, 2019: Passage of the U.S. Farm Bill has ended a five-decade-long ban on industrial hemp (defined as cannabis with less than 0.3% THC), allowing nationwide legal hemp production in all 50 states. Importantly, this should allow companies to deduct business expenses against their taxes (IRS Section 280E), which should significantly increase the bottom line of most companies that carry hemp products. The Farm Bill also lifts restrictions on banking, advertising, and marketing. Hemp/CBD companies will also be able to accept other forms of payment other than cash, including debit and credit cards. Today, we have identified three little-known hemp CBD stocks that have significant upside potential from the passage of the U.S. Farm Bill.
