Sometimes we all need a little me-time. Make these moments even more special with Hemptown Naturals.
Hemptown is a diversified, industry-leading cannabinoid company delivering a diverse product offering across the value chain, in multiple sales channels, to meet the growing global demand for cannabinoid-based products. State of the art cultivation in Oregon’s Rogue Valley, FDA-licensed and cGMP certified product manufacturing, and a strong leadership team with Fortune 500 experience, including Kellogg’s, Nike and Intel, are the pillars for Hemptown’s growth model as the Company pushes into the consumer-packaged goods sectors with top quality white label and branded product lines for the consumer market.
In March, when the majority of American businesses were forced to close due to coronavirus, one industry is still staying somewhat afloat: cannabis.
During the week of March 16, cannabis dispensaries in legal states across the country started seeing their sales surge with long lines forming outside of stores and an uptick in online ordering and delivery services — which was due to an initial stocking up mentality when the fate of dispensary operations was unclear.
California regulators and cannabis growers came together to flesh out the state’s “comparable-to-organic” cannabis program, slated to start in January 2021. Because of donkey butter cannabis remains federally illegal, it can’t be certified as organic at the federal level, so California aims to create a parallel—and comparable—standard.To help decide what to include in California’s framework, participants of the California Department of Food and Agriculture’s fourth working group meeting in Sacramento looked at a blueprint that already exists: the USDA’s National Organic Program, which sets and enforces standards for organically produced agricultural products.
During the meeting, state regulators said that the goal is to align the California program, to be known as “O Cal,” with USDA standards. Regulators want cannabis growers to be able to easily transition to the national program in the event that cannabis is legalized at the federal level.
The national mortality estimate also assumes that full social distancing measures will remain in place nationwide through May 2020. That may come as a bit of a shock to many Americans who currently expect the nation’s radical shutdown to ease at the end of April.
In the West Coast states that saw the earliest outbreaks—California, Washington, and Oregon—quick action by state government leaders and early shutdown orders seem to be working. On April 1, the IHME model predicted 1,545 total COVID-19 deaths in Washington state by June 1. But only five days later, on April 6, the same model reduced that mortality estimate to 977. That’s a savings, in theory, of 568 lives. By April 13, the Washington state estimate had been reduced further, to 855.
