OSU Scores $10 Million Hemp Market Research Grant
Oregon State University’s Global Hemp Innovation Center has been cashed up to explore economic opportunities for hemp in western USA.
The $10 million grant from the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s National Institute of Food and Agriculture’s Sustainable Agricultural Systems grant program will fund a five- year project to be carried out in partnership with other institutions.
The regions covered include Washington, Oregon, Nevada and California east of the Cascade-Sierra Nevada Mountains from Canada to Mexico. The researchers will attempt to determine the best hemp strains for the production of grain, fiber, and “essential oil” (assumed: CBD oil).
