Hemp grown for industrial crops may not exceed 0.3 percent THC. “It’s going to have huge impacts on businesses locally and act as a template for departments of agriculture across the nation,” said Zev Pace, executive director of the National Hemp Association.
The program, a partnership between Colorado State University and over 170 registered growers, received $100,000 in state funding and 2,000 acres of land. Tim Gordon, chief operating officer for CBDRx, a grower and wholesaler of hemp and extracted oils, explained, “The testing itself is rather encompassing. On the growing side, for us it’s an arduous process to develop a strain that’s going to be continually certified as hemp and have it be stable enough to be grown in a variety of environments and be consistent throughout.”
