This year will see the largest U.S. hemp crop since changes to federal law created an avenue for production to start again, turning over decades of fallowed industry.
- Thousands of acres of hemp will be harvested across 19 states.
- Kentucky is seeing particularly good crops, due to near-perfect growing conditions over the summer.
- The main product taken from these crops will be cannabidiol (CBD) oil, used in a growing range of health and wellness products.
- Crop production is set to continue increasing in light of high demand and legal changes.
Sugarmade, Inc. (OTC: SGMD) (SGMD Profile) is profiting from this development by expanding from hydroponics into investment in hemp production, broadening its cannabis-related portfolio.
