Another Exciting Step for Industrial Hemp


Last week, Secretary Redding signed the first research permit to grow industrial hemp in Pennsylvania — one of 14 promising projects that will soon get underway. These opportunities were made possible under Act 92, which Governor Wolf signed in July 2016.

Who cares? Why make a fuss about this crop as opposed to other pharmaceutical research/production and/or agricultural activity that does not get such publicity?

Well, for one, hemp is like corn. It can be used for food, fuel, medicine, and fiber. An acre of hemp can produce the same amount of paper as an acre of trees in one twenty fourth of the time. Hemp oil has many uses, from cooking to bio-diesel to cosmetics. The hemp seed itself is very nutritious and has virtually unlimited potential in food and medicine. Most of our crops, with exceptions like corn and soybeans, are single use, either food, fiber, or medicine. Hemp, like corn and soybeans, covers all of the bases, plus it is easier on the land than corn, can grow on land unfit for other crops, and it contains almost zero thc. A single plant with so many uses seems like a gift, not a curse.

It comes from the same species as marijuana...

Yes, thank you, poster 6:24, for your thoughtful answer. To you, poster 6:56, yes, it comes from the same species as marijuana, but it is not marijuana. You came from the same species as Hitler, but I assume are not Hitler. Clear?

Well 3:26, the forest growers did everything they could to prevent the use of hemp in paper manufacturing, and what better way than to get it labelled into the same category as its relative. William Randolph Hearst spearheaded the effort. Read up on it....
