Senate leader introducing bill to legalize industrial hemp in all 50 states
https://www.wthr.com/article/senate-leader-introducing-bill-to-legalize-industrial-hemp-in-all-50-states

WASHINGTON, DC (WTHR) - Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R – Kentucky) made an announcement Monday morning that could eventually result in tens of millions of dollars for Indiana’s economy.

McConnell said he plans to introduce a bill that would legalize industrial hemp in all 50 states.

“First and foremost, this bill will legalize hemp as an agricultural commodity and remove it from the list of controlled substances,” McConnell said at a press conference in Louisville.

It would allow Indiana and other states to enter a booming hemp industry whose value is expected to top $1.8 billion annually within the next two years.

CBD oil legal in Indiana now that governor has signed bill
http://fox59.com/2018/03/21/cbd-oil-legal-in-indiana-now-that-governor-has-signed-bill/

INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. – Governor Eric Holcomb has signed a bill legalizing the sale and use of cannabidiol (CBD) oil in Indiana.

Under Senate Bill 52, Hoosiers are now able to purchase CBD oil that contains .3% or less of THC, the component of the cannabis plant which causes intoxication. With the low amount of THC, CBD oil users do not experience a “high” feeling that conventional marijuana users typically encounter.

CBD oil has been shown to help with various medical conditions such as cancer, epilepsy and severe pain. The author of SB 52, State Sen. Michael Young (R-Indianapolis), says the bill builds upon a law passed last year, which legalized the use of CBD oil strictly to individuals diagnosed with epilepsy.

The oil will now be available for purchase over-the-counter from retailers across the Hoosier State.

What Sessions Move on Marijuana Means for Hemp, CBD

Source: https://wholefoodsmagazine.com/news/breaking-news/sessions-move-marijuana-means-hemp-cbd/

Attorney General Jeff Sessions’ decision to rescind the 2013 Obama administration memo saying it would not stand in the way of states that legalize marijuana may scare investors, but should not affect hemp-based businesses or the retailers that sell their products.

That’s the opinion of Sean Murphy, founder and publisher of Hemp Business Journal.

“CNN calls it a seismic shift—I don’t think it is—but if it is then it’s only a seismic shift for marijuana companies—not hemp companies,” Murphy said.

This PR and others could come to fruition soon - INDIANAPOLIS, IN – (MARKETWIRE – January 15, 2015) – Stevia Corp. (OTCQB: STEV) ("Stevia Corp" or the "Company"), an international farm management company and healthcare company focused on the commercial development of products that support a healthy lifestyle, including stevia and hemp and their compounds, is pleased to announce the filing of an important provisional patent application with the United States Patent and Trademark Office for the treatment of pain using acetaminophen and Cannabidiol (CBD). A provisional patent application is a legal document which establishes an early priority date for the benefit of claiming “first to file” status against other companies or individuals that may want to file for a patent with similar claims after the filing date of our provisional application.


Aquaculture Initiative

Stevia Corp also uses the by product and waste from the Stevia harvests to manufacture fish feed. This is another money collection bucket for them:

US sweetener developer Stevia Corp. is making a move into the aquaculture and fish feed sectors, having appointed fisheries and agribusiness veteran Andrew Kaelin to its advisory board. 

https://www.undercurrentnews.com/2013/05/17/us-sweetener-firm-to-move-into-fish-feed-products/

Stevia, a natural sweetener grown as stevia leaf and then processed, is already found in over 6,000 products in the US, having been approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in 2008.

The processing of stevia to produce the approved extract Reb-A also produces an ingredient which Corp. is now incorporating into fish feed, Kaelin told Undercurrent News. This has a number of positive effects for aquaculture.

According to the company, stevia itself is a health product, and has a 50% market share in Japan based on this. It also holds health benefits for fish, said Kaelin.

Stevia Corp. is working on developing several products. The first is a probiotic, which uses bacteria in a pond to consume waste materials such as nitrates and nitrites. The second is an enzyme which aids fish digestion, and the third product will be a combination of these two plus the health benefits of the extract (pictured).

Currently Stevia Corp. is working on trials, documentation and establishing the credibility of its products, which have seen a variety of trials already.

Eating algae, Stevia 2.0 and other nutrition trends for 2018

www.chicagotribune.com/lifestyles/health/ct-nutrition-trends-2018-20171220-story.html

Stevia 2.0

Why it's a trend: Stevia continues to rule as the sweetener of choice for people wanting to cut down on sugar or calories. As the demand for stevia grows, so do the product offerings.

Where you'll see it: Look for stevia as an ingredient in more beverages, baking mixes and condiments as consumers look for calorie- and sugar-reduced versions of their favorites.

Stevia will be mixed with brown sugar, cane sugar and honey by companies such as Truvia to make lower-sugar and lower-calorie options. Because these stevia products are naturally sweeter than sugar, you need to use only half the amount
