CBD & Hemp

The follow-up to the Cayman GT4 racer is finally here and Porsche has not only made it faster but greener, too.

Compared to the 89 million acres of soybean in the U.S., the hemp industry is still meager at 25,000 acres, but experts expect that will quickly change now that President Donald Trump has signed the 2018 farm bill.

Hemp is estimated to become a $600 billion industry in 2019, according to the Chicago-based Brightfield Group, and Iowa farmers could get a share of the money if they’re willing to grow it.

Local hemp farmers are feeling some relief from the 2018 Farm Bill, which legalized hemp production at the federal level and clarified the crop’s murky legality.

The versatile plant has hundreds of applications if you want to get down to it.

“We actually teach our students how to plant the seed properly, how to cultivate the seed properly, how to harvest the crop properly and then what to do with the crop after it’s harvest,” said America’s Hemp Academy founder Joe Bisogno, Founder.
