CBD & Hemp

On 14 plots scattered across Pennsylvania this year, farmers reintroduced what was once a dominant cash crop to the state: industrial hemp, the straight-laced, non-psychoactive cannabis cousin of marijuana.

KETCHUM, Idaho (KBOI) — It began when 26-year-old Mattie Mead discovered that hemp could be used as a building material his senior year of college.

Hemp-derived cannabidiol (CBD) is projected to be a billion dollar market in just three years in a new report by the data company Brightfield Group.

A bipartisan group of lawmakers are again calling for industrial hemp to be legally separated from marijuana in the Controlled Substances Act, and advocates believe they might just have the political momentum to succeed.

Last weekend brought Seattle Hempfest—AKA the biggest annual cannabis event on the planet—to the Seattle waterfront, for three days of pro-cannabis outreach, activism, music, mingling, marketing, and glorious sunshine.

BISMARCK, N.D. - North Dakota's first crop of industrial hemp is showing promise, with returns better than a lot of other commodities.
