Industrial hemp is a business, agricultural and an environmental story about a sustainable crop that requires no pesticides or chemical inputs, is drought tolerant, and can provide a source of tens of thousands of jobs in every U.S. state. The current U.S. hemp market is more than $600 million. Unfortunately, those sales are based on imported hemp — rather than domestically-sourced hemp grown by American farmers on U.S. soil.
The National Hemp Association is dedicated to helping American farmers earn a living growing this environmentally sustainable cash crop, making hemp fully legal at the federal level, and rebirthing hemp’s return as a major American crop.
