If approved, the bill directs Florida’s Department of Agriculture to start drafting the rules for the state’s hemp industry, with regards to safety standards, licencing, and quality control. An advisory council will also be created, providing education to local communities, and explaining how hemp differs from cannabis.
The Senate’s decision was based on the case of a young girl called Charlotte, who was using CBD oil to treat her epilepsy. The bill was nicknamed the ‘Charlotte’s Web bill’ in honour of this girl, and after the high CBD cannabis strain that was named after her too (‘Charlotte’s Web).

Good to know
Since Congress removed hemp from their list of illegal drugs, CBD has been technically legal to use, sell, and buy in Florida. It must come from a licenced grower, and it isn’t allowed to contain more than trace levels of THC (the substance responsible for providing a ‘high’).
If the offender is caught growing 2,000 to 10,000 plants, then the prison sentence is seven to 30 years, with a $50,000 fine. Any cultivation that takes place within 1,000 feet of an educational establishment, park or other specified area can result in a 15-year prison sentence and a $10,000 fine.
Industrial hemp was legalised at federal level in 2018, under the Farm Bill. In 2019, Florida’s Senate voted unanimously to pass a bill, establishing a framework for the regulation of hemp cultivation in the state.
Cannabis seeds are legal in Florida, and may be freely purchased and sold. When it comes to mailing them into the state from another state, the law is a little more ambiguous, and there have been some reports of seeds being withheld at customs.

A second choice that will grow well in Florida is Blue Dream. It has some wonderful medicinal benefits that will make growing it desirable. This strain will help bring back your lack of appetite if you have dietary problems or are going through chemotherapy. Other benefits include help with chronic pain, mild muscle spasms, or pain from illness and injury. Like many other strains, this will help with chronic fatigue and depression. However, we do not recommend that you use this strain if you have an anxiety disorder of any kind. The dosing can be tricky to manage appropriately and if you take too much you may end up with more anxiety. When growing this outside, plant seeds in early May in a mostly sunny spot. The flowering time for these is 8-10 weeks, and harvest time is in October. You will average 14 to 21 ounces per plant. With all these benefits, you may be asking where you get Blue Dream Near Me?
