Q: selling hemp / CBD products online in MASS. Does this require a MDAR license or can I operate under farmbill USDA/FDA?
region is for Massachusetts
if you read the MDAR website its really confusing in the wording when discussing the Whole sale which I know for sure they regulate. Its confusing legalese I feel like should be a really simple answer..
A: While the Farm Bill USDA/FDA regulations provide a framework for the cultivation and sale of hemp at the federal level, it does not exempt businesses from complying with state-specific requirements. Therefore, even if you are operating under the Farm Bill USDA/FDA regulations, you may still need to obtain a license from MDAR to sell hemp/CBD products in Massachusetts.
