The history of hemp goes back thousands of years. There was a time in the United States that some farmers were required to grow hemp because it was a much needed resource to make many products. Fast forward to the 1900s and hemp was banned alongside Schedule 1 drugs. Then the Hemp Farming Act of 2018 proposed a law to remove hemp (defined as cannabis with less than 0.3% THC) from Schedule I controlled substances which would make it an ordinary agricultural commodity. Its provisions were incorporated in the 2018 United States farm bill that became law on December 20, 2018. Now, although individual states are still able to ban hemp, they cannot ban cross-state transport…thus the story of hemp continues.Ola Lessard from the US Hemp Roundtable and Barleans joins The Crownsmen Podcast to discuss both the history and future of hemp. She discusses the role of the US Hemp Roundtable which serves as a lobbyist organization on behalf of the hemp industry, and she outlines the role of its’ sister organization the US Hemp Authority which serves as a certification body to preserve integrity and quality within the industry. Ola is also VP, Marketing & Communications of Barleans who has expanded their business into the CBD Hemp Oil space.This episode also explores the United State’s complex relationship with Hemp as Ola talks about Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell becoming an unlikely ally in removing hemp from the Schedule I controlled substances list. We look at how education has begun to shift people's attitudes towards hemp and allowed it to separate from cannabis in public perception. Most importantly how states that are commonly conservative such as Kentucky have realized the opportunity for struggling farmers who can now grow a crop because hemp allows multiple harvests in a year, has a stronger resistance to pesticides, and is a comparatively easier product to grow.

Millions of square feet around the world is covered by fabric buildings. What we wanted to know is how much has the technology has evolved? Fabric buildings were at one time typically used for equipment or product storage but are now being constructed for sport facilities and even housing. The reason is in no small part thanks to innovations within the industry that have made fabric more durable and airtight, designs being more customized and the steel frames stronger while minimizing steel waste.

According to a US Hemp Corp, in 2017 23,343 acres of hemp were cultivated that year across the United States. In 2018, that sum swelled to 77,000 acres. There are few (if any) agriculture sectors that are growing at a comparable rate and farmers have a new opportunity to grow a renewable crop with high returns. As the industry grows the stigma of hemp also is beginning to disappear and uses for hemp products continue to be explored. With rapid growth there is a demand for industrial scale harvesting and production equipment. Corbett Hefner - Vice President R&D for Formation Ag joined us to explore the industry, the machinery they have developed, and the product itself.
