Unchartered Territory: Colorado State Begins Research Into Industrial Hemp
Industrial hemp has a range of practical industrial applications, but Colorado farmers don’t have enough information about the crop to grow it efficiently and profitably.
Colorado State University is conducting research (with the permission of the federal government) to determine which varieties of hemp are the best for US climates.

It will be exciting to see how this industry develops in the years to come.”
