Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) is moving to insert language into a congressional spending report that calls on the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to clear a path for the lawful marketing of hemp-derived CBD products.

FDA has said that allowing CBD to be sold as food items or dietary supplements would require it to develop alternative regulations that could take years to complete without congressional action. But McConnell, who was the chief proponent of a hemp legalization provision of the 2018 Farm Bill, isn’t interested in waiting around.

Lebermuth took a trip to Willamette Valley Oregon to visit one of our Peppermint Oil growers to learn more about the 2019 mint harvest.

Lebermuth has partnered with this family for many years. They currently harvest nearly 350 acres of peppermint as part of the basket of crops they produce which include snap peas, sweet corn and grass seed.  The visit was fanatic, they gave us a complete tour of their operations which included swathing the mint hay into windrows, chopping and collection of mint hay into the mobile tubs which were taken to the still to be turned into the essential oil.  We watched as the mint hay was steam distilled, condensed, and separated into a powerful, sweet mobile liquid flowing into the 55 gallon drums to be shipped back to Lebermuth.
