Hemp is now a bona fide American crop.

The US Department of Agriculture this week posted formal federal guidelines for how hemp - the versatile cannabis varietal used for clothing, plastics, fuel and food - can be grown, harvested, tested, processed, transported and sold. The USDA also established the US Domestic Hemp Production Program to regulate the cannabis plant.

"The industry has been waiting with bated breath for these," said attorney Anita Sabine, who represents hemp, cannabis and CBD firms at the Manatt, Phelps & Phillips law firm in Los Angeles. "They could not come soon enough."
