PALM BEACH, Florida, June 11, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- With the passage of the U.S. Farm Bill, hemp will see a significant catalyst for growth. It's already allowing for hemp cultivation and the transfer of hemp products across state lines for commercial and other purposes, notes Forbes. Along the way, It may just create a $39.4 billion market, says Markets and Markets, a marked improvement from a $10.3 billion valuation in 2018. That's opening a wide range of opportunity for companies including MYM Nutraceuticals Inc., (CSE:MYM) (OTC:MYMMF), Village Farms International Inc. (TSX:VFF)(NASDAQ:VFF), Cannabis Science Inc. (OTC:CBIS), Crop Infrastructure Corp. (CSE:CROP)(OTC:CRXPF), and Charlotte's Web Holdings Inc. (CSE:CWEB)(OTC:CWBHF).

Village Farms International Inc. (TSX:VFF)(NASDAQ:VFF) just announced that following the House of Representatives concurring with the Senate amendments, House Bill 1325 will become law in Texas, subject to the June 16, 2019 deadline for the Governor to veto bills – a highly unlikely proposition for a bill that passed both the House of Representatives and Senate unanimously. As a result of this legislative change, Village Farms has begun conversion of half of its 1.3 million square foot, ultra-high-tech Permian Basin greenhouse (which utilizes the Company's proprietary GATES technology) for both cultivation of high-cannabidiol (CBD) hemp and CBD extraction. The Texas Hemp Legislation will require licenses for both the cultivation and processing of hemp. Village Farms plans to apply for the requisite licenses as soon as it is permitted to do under the new legislation. No time frame has yet been provided by the State of Texas for the licensing process.
