CORAL GABLES, FL / ACCESSWIRE / December 26, 2018 / A new development in the legislative battle for legal marijuana has recently taken over domestic headlines . The new piece of legislation, known as the Farm Bill, has long-term implications for the whole world of cannabis as for the first time, Congress approved a bill that will allow $867 million to go the agricultural industry as a result of the legalization of hemp. American Premium Water Corporation (OTC:HIPH) , Canopy Growth Corporation (NYSE:CGC), CannTrust Holdings Inc (OTC PINK: CNTTF), and Innovative Industrial Properties, Inc (NYSE:IIPR) are 4 pot stocks that are heating up.
American Premium Water Corporation (OTC:HIPH) is a company you may not have heard of, but could potentially benefit from looking into. The Company is a diversified luxury consumer products corporation largely focused on utilizing the molecular potential of hydrogen as well as nano technologies to optimize cannabidiol (CBD) to treat health disorders and enhance the quality of life for consumers.
Early last week, American Premium Water Corporation (OTC:HIPH) issued a statement of applause in celebration of the signing of the 2018 Farm Bill by President Donald Trump. The Company commended the rare act of bipartisanship among all members of Congress which, following its enactment, will help create jobs and positively affect the lives of millions of Americans with legalization of hemp.
”Today is a monumental day for our industry. I applaud representatives of the US government for coming together to get rid of the antiquated laws around hemp that serve the best interests of the people so well. It’s very telling in this polarized and partisan atmosphere we are in, both parties overwhelmingly approved this common-sense legislation that is going to make doing business in the hemp industry significantly easier. This is a watershed day for the Company. Going forward, the restrictions and unfounded reservations against products containing CBD (like ours) should be lifted, giving millions of US consumers unfettered access to our products. The landscape of the market has seismically changed and will look very different going forward. Over the coming weeks and into the new year, the Company will be looking to capitalize off this legislation and I look forward to updating investors about it.”
