Hemp Grown In the U.S.
Posted on August 21 2019
With the legalization of cannabis growing around the country, many U.S. farmers want to get more involved in a multi-billion dollar industry. Hemp is a versatile plant, used in a variety of industries including clothing, textiles and medicinal purposes.
Hemp is the fastest growing crop in the United States with a 368% increase in acres between 2018 to now.
According to new data from the US Department of Agriculture (USDA), US farmers more than quadrupled the land planted with hemp in the past year, from 27,424 acres in August 2018 to 128,320 acres today. ("As Demand For CBD Explodes, US Farmers Are Seeking Dollar Signs," Quartz)
