Due to the diversity of applications, interest in hemp is at an all time high and farmers, entrepreneurs, and innovators are exploring it. Yet as a young industry, there are still many questions, myths and unknowns. What is needs to happen today to ensure that the value chain functions to set the state’s producers, processors and others up for success?
