  • CBD does in fact work for inflammation. That’s why its becoming so big for athletes. Anyways you gotta make sure you get the real stuff, cbdMD is the best brand, and they offer 15% off coupon using CBDMD15OFF

  • I just bought property and have 43 tillable acres. I want to use some or all of the land to try and grow the Hemp for CBD. Looking for tips and a business plan. ANy suggestions?

  • With everything going on the the world right now (2020) and since hemp has antibacterial properties, is there a market for hemp medical masks?

  • I hope you chose to jump in, the red tape is well worth the time and effort, depending of course, if you have the passion to build in uncharted territory. Don’t let fear of the unknown, stagnate your feet from moving in a positive direction.

  • I just ordered my first bag of hemp hearts from Amazon…can’t wait to get them! I’m going to make the hemp milk and berry smoothie bc I always keep frozen berries and bananas in my freezer.:) I started eating clean in mid-June. I’ve lost almost all my body fat…have flat stomach and abs again! Down to my ideal weight of 130 (i’m 5’5″) and lost over 2 inches in my waist!! Feels great!

  • As long as it helps me to sleep & not be depressed. Even though, I do love smoking up. I just tried Charlotte’s Web. CBD oil. So,it helps. It’s funny,it helped better to sleep than Melatonin. Good music,by the way!

  • But Bob’s uses ONLY polluting plastic. That’s not very clean. We’ve had to stop buying their products because they don’t seem to care. It’s a shame. They could be the ideal company. too bad.

  • CBD is fine, but society and the planet needs biodegradable single-use plastic grocery bags in a much, much broader scale.

    Broad enough for every farmer to be able to rely on that as a base price and sales option for hemp.

    Where that factory is located has yet to be identified.

  • Already analysed.
    Go to building materials research institute Roorkee. CSIR India. Jute research Institute Calcutta.Bison German..UNDP of UNO. First arrange meeting with UNDP at Calcutta.

  • Wow men, great explication, really like it!
    what kind of flower do you have? Do you distribute several brands? I love Black tie, green brothers, just bob, plantandhemp….
    there is a lot of good sellers, which one are you selling?

  • If I had the land I think the way I would do it starting out is focusing on the soil and quality of the hemp. Finding the best yield vs quality formula. Having a product to build a reputation on. I wouldn’t expect much profits the first season. (Which is a part of the problem in this because so much time would be invested that you would want good profit margins). Then I think it would be wise to invest in some equipment that would allow you to turn a large portion of the hemp into different types of products to sell. Then set aside a certain portion of the harvest for wholesale flower sales to factories.
    Maybe venture into the online store business with CBD products. Idk, it’s easy to say this, a lot harder to do it. Farming is hard work.
