U.S. Postal Service loses CBD Delivery Case, a major step in the right direction further defining the legality of hemp derived CBD. Hemp for Victory!
December 3, 2018 – Vancouver, BC – Isodiol International Inc. (CSE: ISOL) (OTCQB: ISOLF) (FSE: LB6A.F) (the “Company” or “Isodiol”) is pleased with the U.S. Federal Court Systems decision for clearing the way to transport CBD derived from industrial hemp and for also providing further clarity to the legality of CBD in the United States.
In January 2018, the USPS seized a package in Denver, Colorado mailed by KaB, LLC, containing cannabidiol which is widely known as CBD that was derived from industrial hemp and argued that CBD was a controlled substance. On February 9, 2018, KaB timely appealed the non-mailability by the USPS of the package and Administrative Law Judge (ALJ) James G. Bilbert oversaw the appeal and wrote an opinion in favor of KaB.
Pursuant to 39 C.F.R. § 953.13, the USPS appealed and both parties filed appellate briefs. Then on November 1, 2018, the Judicial Officer conducted limited oral arguments and then denied the USPS appeal and ruled that the CBD at issue is mailable.
“This is a landmark ruling that will have a significant impact on the hemp industry and further establishes federal judicial precedent defining the clear letter of the law,” said Isodiol CEO, Marcos Agramont. “This case also further clarifies the intent of Congress and clarifies misinterpretations by the DOJ and DEA,” added Agramont.
