CBD & Hemp

A Kentucky company says it has developed hemp plants that don’t contain any THC, which is marijuana’s main psychoactive component.

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.

Touted as a wonder drug capable of easing anxiety, reducing inflammation, and preventing seizures, cannabidiol, or CBD, has been growing rapidly in popularity.

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

At a time when plastic is damaging not only our environment but also our health, it seems more vital than ever to explore hemp’s role in the future of sustainable materials.

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.
