For Adam and Julia Weets, hemp is a business opportunity that allows them to contribute to their community and support their family.

The Alpha residents have been growing hemp for a couple years as part of their business, Alpha’s Alternatives.

The Weets grow hemp for CBD, which is a non-psychoactive agent used to help with pain, insomnia and a host of other health issues.

“CBD is something your body has natural receptors for,” Adam Weets said.

“When you take it, it doesn’t mask things, but instead helps your body get to where it should be.”

The product, which can be taken as a tincture and as a rollover, is non-addictive and does not produce highs, as its THC content is under the legal limit.
