Experimenting with the cultivation of industrial hemp in less than ideal conditions, Hemp, Inc. has announced their 43 acres of industrial hemp in the high desert community of Tonopah, Nevada, will be harvested by week’s end.
According to Chief Executive Officer, Bruce Perlowin, “We plan to be on-site the day of harvest with media coverage. This grow is a part of history and we’re proud to be a part of it. Not only that, we learned a lot from this first hemp grow. This was an experimental grow in an area not commonly known for farming, so this was a very unique situation. To our surprise, it did really well to be grown in high desert climate and it appears a significant amount of seed can be yielded from it, and as you know, the seed can be of great value.”
Hemp History in the Making
Demonstrating she’s a tough plant that offers bionic biodiversity to an otherwise hot, arid, and bleak landscape, many believe that germinating this first industrial hemp crop in the Silver State could ultimately prove to be a quantum leap forward for the environment, industry, and United States.
Rushing to get their 70,000-ft.² hemp processing facility up and operational as soon as possible, Hemp, Inc.‘s primary focus going forward will remain myopically targeted at the beneficial production of their hemp-based CBD-rich oils and tinctures.
“Our multi-purpose decortication hemp processing facility is in the final stages of completion, so our first and foremost focus is on getting it operational. Growing hemp is part of our strategic business model and with the success of this first groundbreaking industrial hemp grow, we’re really excited to grow more, especially for CBDs.”
Hemp Around the World
Slowly joining the likes of Ukraine, China, Egypt, Romania and Russia in understanding the environmental and economic importance of industrial hemp, 27 of the 50 U.S. states are currently embracing the industrial cultivation of this dynamic plant.
First legalized when President Obama signed the 2014 Farm Bill, California, Colorado, Connecticut, Delaware, Hawaii, Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Maine, Maryland, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska, Nevada, New York, North Carolina, North Dakota, Oregon, South Carolina, Tennessee, Utah, Vermont, Washington, West Virginia and Virginia, have all passed some form of legislation allowing for the cultivation of industrial hemp.
