District Hemp Botanicals Blossoms in D.C.

By Heather Collins

After the birth of her son, 27-year-old entrepreneur Barbara Biddle was determined to overcome postpartum depression through the benefits of CBD, which ultimately inspired her to open District Hemp Botanicals, a retail store specializing in hemp-based products.

“I found that CBD made me feel so much better. It motivated me to help others and it was definitely the catalyst for my business. Sharing my experience inspires me and our customers,” shares Biddle. 

According to Psychology Today, CBD and hemp may help alleviate symptoms of stress, depression and anxiety, but it depends on the reason for its use. The findings indicate that “CBD interacts with a subset of serotonin receptors to provide a mild anti-anxiety effect and reduces the autonomic nervous system’s stress response. At lower doses, CBD is calming without producing a sense of being drug-affected or intoxicated.”

Help Urge Support for H.R. 8179, The Hemp and Hemp-derived CBD Consumer Protection and Market Stabilization Act of 2020, U.S. Hemp Roundtable Action Alert
Hemp Supporters, there’s never been a more urgent opportunity to support CBD on Capitol Hill. If passed, H.R. 8179 would ensure that hemp-derived CBD, and other non-intoxicating hemp ingredients, could be lawfully marketed as dietary supplements.

Urge Your Members of Congress to Support Our Troops’ Access to CBD
On July 20, 2020 the U.S. House of Representatives approved an amendment to the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) to allow service members to use products containing hemp, including CBD. Unfortunately, the amendment was not included in the Senate’s version of the NDAA, which passed on July 23, and was not included in the final bill. However, as a new Congress meets this year, they are hoping for another hearing. Please share this U.S. Hemp Roundtable page with your friends, colleagues, customers, and social media contacts throughout the country.

Sign the 1% Hemp Petition
The 2018 Farm Bill authorized hemp production but used an outdated definition of hemp that does not work for farmers or the hemp industry. The current definition limiting hemp to 0.3% THC has proven unworkable, forcing many farmers to destroy their crops because they were slightly over the limit. We need Congress to change the definition of hemp to allow up to 1% THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) so that farmers can grow hemp crops without fearing that they will later have to destroy them. Please add your name to the Vote Hemp petition urging Congress to redefine hemp as up to 1% THC and share this with your friends.
