This company is the first to legally ship hemp across state lines by rail in 84 years
The first shipment of legal hemp to cross state lines in the U.S. by railroad in 84 years departed from California, fittingly, on 4/20.
Approximately 17,000 pounds (7,700 kilograms) of hemp, grown at the 550-acre Golden State Hemp farm in Fresno, Calif., was shipped by Union Pacific rail to the company’s research lab in Denver, Colo.
“Today’s first shipment by rail is another goal in our company mission of ‘Changing the world one acre at a time,’” Jeff Friedland, co-founder and CEO of Golden State Hemp, said in a release.
