And since you can only tell industrial hemp and marijuana apart by doing a test in the lab, the task of separating them in the eyes of many is difficult. Congress continues to reduce the restrictions on the cultivation of industrial hemp and more states are allowing the cultivation of hemp within their borders.
And the industry is emerging. In Colorado alone in , the state had registrations for 1, acres.
Many of those registrations never intended to actually plant industrial hemp but applied for historical purposes as applicants wanted a historical document authorizing the cultivation of hemp in more than 70 years. Of the registered acres, only about acres were actually planted. In , there were registrations accounting for 3, acres outdoor and an additional , square feet of indoor production space.
And that growth has continued in with more than registrations totaling 9, acres outdoors and 1. Those growth trends are reflected nationally. Since the passage of the Farm Bill, the industry is now estimated to be more than 16, acres of industrial hemp grown in In any emerging industry things change rapidly. In , many registrants were enthusiastic but undercapitalized, had limited agronomic or horticultural experience and had no long term business plan. Operation size was relatively small, most under an acre.
Crop and business consultants are entering the market so agronomic practices are improving and business plans are better developed. Many operations are more financially stable as investors and venture capitalists look for the right opportunities. For a product that the Congressional Research Committee has identified more than 25, uses, the hemp industry has a lot of opportunities for growers as well as others to explore. On a recent trip to Utah and Montana, I found the shampoo and conditioner to be hemp based.
Many car manufacturers use hemp composites for their strength and the light weight adds to the vehicles fuel efficiency. There are protein powders and health food snacks that contain hemp seed, which is rich in Omega-3 and Omega 6 oils. Hempcrete, a combination of hemp fiber and lime adds a new lightweight building material option for home or office construction and the fiber alone makes a great insulation.
One product that has attracted early attention in this emerging market has been cannabidial or CBD. CBD is used for a variety of purposes most notably the treatment of epileptic seizures. Researchers continue to explore the values of this and other cannabinoids for their healing or wellness value. Most often varieties selected for CBD production are produced through vegetative propagation.
