CBD & Hemp

In a surprising turn, Pennsylvania is throwing the door wide open for industrial hemp production — something the state, or the U.S. for that matter, has not seen since before World War II.

Hemp is often touted as a super-crop with myriad uses. So what does it take to grow it? Here's an overview.

"Hemp holds a lot of promise for Hoosiers, for what it could do for farming, for business and for individual folks."

Hemp has been around for centuries and can be found in various industries, from construction to clothing. Now, the plant is being used in the surfing world to help make the board eco-friendly.

A month after the latest farm bill legalized industrial hemp as a crop plant, Minnesota's hemp program coordinator has been swamped with phone calls.

"You take North Carolina's agricultural background and this can be an amazing crop. Mark this space, it's going to be a very big market."
