Colorado is in a very unique position with many industrial hemp opportunities.
Colorado has a historic opportunity, and much is yet to come…There is a lot of work to do before industrial hemp grown in Colorado will be considered comparative in value with hemp grown in other parts of the world. There are quite a few unknown factors to discover growing a brand new crop here after 60 some odd years.The goal is for everyone to have the best success! Now that it’s legal to grow, we can pave the way in this industry. There are few key points to support the cultivation process for farmers to keep it simple and most effective for you to do what you do best – the growing.The ramping up of the industry here in Colorado is estimated to take a minimum of three to five years.  Here’s to designing our Hempy World!Where do I get seed and what should it cost?

•Cultivate your own
•Order it yourself online.
•Work with a collaborative group to properly and legally import cultivars from around the world.
…or all of the above.
