Hemp has Potential
There's still some uncertainty around the federal and the state rules that regulate hemp—but as the market for CBD oil grows, there's a lot of anticipation around what a good hemp crop could mean for the ag economy.
This also comes as farmers are looking for a crop they can grow and sell to make money.
Dr. Brian Forrest with Access Healthcare says that the "budding" CBD market seems to have potential.
Legal CBD oil - with 0% TCH - is already in high demand, and it comes from growing Hemp. One reason why farmers are so anxious to grow the plant - which is a distant cousin of marijuana.
