The hemp green rush is on!
Have you considered the impact of the surge in interest for CBD products on the farmers who grow hemp? Since the Farm Bill was signed into law earlier this year, farmers who were already growing hemp are seeing huge spikes in demand and those who were not growing it are moving as fast as they can to plant the crop. For farmers, the opportunity with hemp is beyond just CBD products. It is an agricultural crop with a long history of industrial and consumer applications — think grains, fuels and fibers. We’re obviously strong proponents of Tennessee-grown hemp for CBD products but farms across the state are also huge suppliers on the industrial side. The soil and climate in Tennessee are well-suited for hemp. On top of that, what really makes Tennessee hemp great is the agricultural community’s knowledge, expertise and investment in producing the highest quality crop anywhere.
