Here are the facts:

  • Industrial hemp is projected to be a $1 billion industry by 2019.
  • In 2018 the number of hemp growing States in the agricultural pilot program increased by over 50%. Growing from 19 to 39 hemp-producing States.
  • The industry is growing while standards and policies are still being put into place; adding a level of uncertainty to crop quality as farmers learn.

The way in which the industry is growing leaves manufacturers in a vulnerable
position.

It is our top priority to provide free education and networking to our members and to advocate for reform on their behalf.
