U.S. organic hemp research gets a funding boost

A $1 million U.S. Department of Agriculture grant is supporting Purdue University research into organic hemp production.

Much knowledge has been lost in the USA between the start of prohibition decades ago and the recent hemp renaissance; particularly in relation to growing hemp without the use of pesticides, or the use of environmentally gentle pesticides.

While a hardy crop, there are a multitude of hemp pests; including aphids, gnats and borers that can reduce yield or kill plants.

The 5 biggest problems for cannabusinesses

Achieving growth and building a following in any new industry can be tough, especially when its product used to be illegal. There is no better example of this than cannabis. Despite being legalized in many states for medicinal and recreational use, it is still illegal at the federal level.

A survey conducted by RYAH Medtech Inc. is shedding some light on the cannabis habits of women living in the U.S. It found that well-balanced strains along with those that are high in CBD were most important to the group of over 28,000 respondents to the survey.

Last week, Sam Markowski pulled his pickup truck into a field where he once planted 10 acres of feed corn. Instead of neat rows of corn stalks, however, thousands of dark green hemp plants dotted the landscape.

Markowski, wearing a fleece and a baseball cap bearing the name of his family's excavation company, threaded his way through the pungent plants toward a lone worker in the distance, framed by hills of fading fall foliage.

Chris Teitsma gently squeezed the flower-laden stalk top of a hemp plant, known as the cola, and explained how he knew the time for harvesting had arrived. "You want them fat and firm like this," Teitsma said, showing off the crop. "The flowers are really dense and packed in there."

Scientists have studied the trichomes (or "cellular factories") of the cannabis plant in extreme detail, revealing that flowers with mushroom-shaped hairs are the most potent—both in terms of smell and cannabinoid content.
