11 Oct ValidCare Joins U.S. Hemp Roundtable
Membership in coalition will support alignment and shared interest with rapidly growing, hemp-derived CBD product industry
Centennial, Colo. – October 11, 2018 – ValidCare, LLC, today announced it has become a member of the U.S. Hemp Roundtable, an independent, non-profit organization with a membership base of several dozen hemp companies, representing every link of the product chain from seed to sale. The U.S. Hemp Roundtable has a goal to secure passage of bi-partisan legislation in the U.S. Congress that would establish hemp as an agricultural commodity, and permanently remove it from regulation as a controlled substance. The coalition aims to build political support and ensure the long term viability of the industry.
“We are thrilled to have ValidCare join the US Hemp Roundtable,” said Roundtable General Counsel Jonathan Miller. “As the leading business trade association for the hemp industry, we are committed to ensuring the highest standards and best practices for hemp farming and products, to give consumers confidence for safety and quality, and law enforcement confidence in legality. ValidCare’s involvement in that process, and their commitment to research, collaboration, and data collection, will be invaluable.”
“This coalition recognizes the importance of hemp to the U.S. agricultural economy and its numerous applications for use from food to textiles to industrial uses and wellness,” said Patrick McCarthy, CEO of ValidCare. “We are excited to work together with all members of the U.S. Hemp Roundtable to help further the growth of the hemp industry in America, building insights from data that spans seed to outcomes.”
