iHemp Michigan is hosting two conferences in March to educate farmers on the versatility of the hemp plant.

Industrial Hemp Industry of Michigan Conference March 7th at AgroLiquid in St. Johns, Michigan & March 14th at Franklin Inn in Bad Axe, Michigan

Ferrysburg— February 19, 2019 iHemp Michigan is hosting educational conferences to benefit the farming community and promote the industrial hemp industry in Michigan. Industrial hemp is not psychoactive. It has less than three-tenths of one percent THC. The crop was traditionally grown for its strong fiber in the past. Demand for CBD oil is driving production of industrial hemp around the country.

“This simple plant can do so much good for our environment,” said John Freeman of iHemp Michigan.

A Major Crop For Farmers

Thanks to the passing of the U.S. Farm Bill, industrial hemp is legal to grow and process. There are uses for every part of the plant and the demand is there for thousands of acres of crop.

“I have processors ready to buy the flower to process,” said Blain Becktold, owner of Down on the Farm, LLC.
