CBD & Hemp

Thursday was a big day for the still very young hemp industry in Oklahoma. It was the harvest of the first industrial hemp crop in the state since World War II.

Legal hemp has returned to Kentucky. Will the Feds step aside and let the industry flourish?

What challenges are to come as the Great White North goes green and the U.S. Hemp Farming Act of 2018 allows its hemp farmers to compete?

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.

Farmers have been able to grow hemp in Minnesota only for three years, and only with restrictions. As the rules change, farmers and consumers are in a kind of limbo, waiting for lawmakers to decide what is legal and what is not.

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.
