Colorado has become the first state in America to legally grow the magic crop that is hemp. Thirteen producers have registered to legally grow hemp in Colorado in the month since registration began, according to the state Department of Agriculture. However, those thirteen producers hold a total of twenty registrations, as several of them are registered to grow in more than one location or for more than one purpose. Ten of the registrations are for commercial purposes, while the other ten are for research and development.
The growing conditions in Colorado are perfect for hemp production, so i’m sure we’ll see an influx of growers begin to produce Hemp for the commercial market from the mountain state.
For all the Americans who produce products with Hemp, you’ll soon not have to import the product from across the border. But remember the strain can change properties in different growing conditions, so be sure to research your batch before purchasing in bulk.
