Minnesota’s sales of products that contain cannabidiol (CBD), the non-psychoactive counterpart to tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), have seen continued success in sales as its limited number of retailers struggle to keep shelves stocked.
The list of vendors who conduct sales of CBD products are few and far between within the state and those that specialize in it, like Minnesota Hempdropz, are even harder to come by. Nothing But Hemp in Maplewood Mall provides CBD tinctures and more CBD products that originate from an organic hemp farm and Spot Spa in Minneapolis offers a massage with a lotion that is infused with CBD.
Many individuals within the state swear by CBD and have come forward to share their sentiments and experience with the range of product uses. One customer, a customer of Nothing But Hemp, Jeremy Current, states: “It’s part of my morning routine. It makes me way less irritable”. Jeremy also specifically shared that he ingests a 10mg dose of CBD from a CBD oral solution where one drop that the one he applies under his tongue is equal to the 10mg dose.
Risk of Prosecution for Marijuana-Related Companies. If you are considering investing in a company that is connected to the marijuana industry, be aware that marijuana-related companies may be at risk of federal, and perhaps state, criminal prosecution. The Department of Treasury recently issued guidance noting: “[T]he Controlled Substances Act (“CSA”) makes it illegal under federal law to manufacture, distribute, or dispense marijuana. Many states impose and enforce similar prohibitions. Notwithstanding the federal ban, as of the date of this guidance, 20 states and the District of Columbia have legalized certain marijuana-related activity.”
