As of January 1, 2020, Florida’s new hemp extract guidelines went into effect. The biggest news was that a $650 yearly hemp extract license is required for any business in the state that manufactures, produce or sells CBD products. In this article, we are covering their hemp extract labeling guidelines.
This is a requirement to sell your CBD products in stores in the state of Florida. So if you are a California or Texas brand this applies to you if you want to sell your products in the state of Florida.
