The 21st century is a brave new era for hemp flower planters. Now that it’s legal to grow, manufacture, and transport hemp throughout the USA, more farmers are becoming interested in the many uses of this centuries-old plant. Heck, there are now reports of Kentucky tobacco farmers who are switching to industrial hemp cultivation.
While hemp may be relatively new in the USA, records suggest hemp is one of the oldest cultivated plants known to man. However, it’s only recently that we’ve grown hemp primarily for CBD. In the past, most people used hemp fibers to make textiles, papers, and ship sails.
As farmers re-learn how to grow this incredible crop, scientists are discovering many fascinating uses for hemp flowers. For instance, did you know hemp could be used as an eco-friendly alternative to plastic? There’s even talk of using hemp in fields as diverse as biofuel and construction.
Only time will tell how much this ancient crop could become a part of the future economy!
Check Out Tribe’s High-Quality Hemp Standards
Note: Not all farming techniques are ideal for extracting CBD from hemp flowers. While growing industrial-grade hemp in large fields is fine, CBD hemp needs more space, time, and care to mature. Also, farmers who grow hemp for CBD extraction should focus on organic standards and only cultivate females that produce higher-than-average cannabinoid counts.
At Tribe CBD, we know all about the intricacies of growing high-quality hemp flowers. That’s why we take care to only work with farmers that meet our exacting standards. If you want to learn more about why our CBD oil is so high-quality, check here.
