What’s new down on the farm? Hemp. Farmers are trying to grow industrial hemp all over instead of food crops that have been providing insufficient returns. Consumers are starting to notice this strange new crop as they drive down country roads. Industrial hemp is not recreational marijuana; it’s the non-intoxicating low-THC, oilseed and fiber variety of Cannabis, with no use as a recreational drug. As of the 2018 Farm Bill, hemp is no longer a controlled substance, but growers must follow the regulations and processes required in their state. Kris Corter, the Managing Director of HempWave explains the phenomenal ‘green rush’ to hemp production that is taking place on America’s farms. This Table Talk touches on what hemp means to farmers, consumers and this brand new industry. hempwave.com
