PALM BEACH, Fla., January 11, 2018 /PRNewswire/ --
The recent U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions' decision to rescind the 2013 Obama administration memo essentially stating the AG would not stand in the way of states that have legalize cannabis. However, it appears the decision may not have affected CBD hemp-based operations and sales or the vast number of retailers that sell their CBD based products of any measure. As the Cannabis industry as a whole, the market appears to have quickly rebounded and possibly pointing to the fact that the actual risk of the Department of Justice enforcing the federal laws against the current operations is minimal.
Meanwhile CBD - Hemp infused products are gaining major traction in the wellness world, as many praise its ability to transform a person's pain management, sleep, anxiety and so much more.
