When it comes to sourcing industrial hemp clones in the great state of Tennessee, there is a lot to know that they don’t tell you up front. For starters, although Tennessee has legalized the production of industrial hemp, the state has no jurisdiction over the multitude of factors that an industrial hemp producer will face.
As an example, federal law requires that residents of Tennessee procure certified hemp seeds from a third party. Since extant hemp seeds in Tennessee may have varying levels of THC, they are not certified for industrial use.
There are no certified pesticides for use in the production of high-CBD hemp plants in the state, nor are there are there any laws in place to mandate banking institutions to provide their services to industrial hemp farmers.
As such, the burden must be born by the individuals who endeavor to produce CBD hemp crops. And it is their responsibility to obtain low-THC, CBD-rich hemp clones from third party entities. The liability belongs solely to the industrial hemp farmer, and his or her agents and assigns.
Below are a few helpful tips for sourcing quality CBD-rich hemp clones in Tennessee and beyond.
CONSIDER THE MARKETPLACE
Despite the red tape you will have to cope with when registering with the state and setting up your operations, this is an ideal time to be getting into the space. Industrial hemp production has been booming with the passing of the 2018 Farm Bill.
Experienced lawyers are at the ready to consult with you about farming programs, crop insurance, high risk merchant processing firms and conservation reserves.
More than 3,000 people have applied to grow hemp in 2019 alone. That’s up from a mere 300 in the previous year.
Locals have recognized that Tennessee is fertile ground for a big return on their acreage. Forbes contributor Andre Bourque has said that hemp is giving renewed life to America’s tobacco farmers and this is plain to see in the vast dividends it has created.
Marijuana stocks are at an all-time high (no pun intended) and hemp revenue is expected to climb by 27% annually, hitting $2.6 billion by 2022. Hemp cultivation, processing and extraction is where the real money is at these days, plain and simple.
