Want to be a hemp grower? There is so much to explore. Learn before you leaps. The general focus will be on the CBD market, but other uses and products will be discussed. We will cover it all including:

  • History and effects of legislation
  • Potential funding sources,
  • Permits and licenses
  • Business structure
  • Legal considerations including communication with local law enforcement
  • Security measures
  • The Farm Bill and its effect on the hemp market.
  • Cultivation techniques
  • Plant identification including strains and varieties that grow well in the mountains
  • Equipment needed for indoor, outdoor, and greenhouse production
  • Ecological potential including erosion control and bioremediation.

Appropriate for current and aspiring hemp farmers.
