5 Things to Know About Hemp Farming

Here are 5 things your need to know about hemp farming for both high CBD or industrial. In today’s video, I head out to the University of Vermont (UVM) Hemp …


  1. We are in the same boat. Asking lots of questions and doing our due diligence. What else have you learned since this convention? Can you please make another video with an update? Have you made a decision to proceed? We have 80 acres in SE Arizona that we are looking to farm, but we are starting from scratch. Just installed the well. So, its a process.

  2. Nice video. Thanks for sharing. Yes, "growing" hemp is one thing, but harvesting, drying and SELLING are additional things to consider. Understanding your federal and local regulations is important so you don't end up with "hot" plants (THC level over their defined limit). That'll be a total loss. Selling your biomass (harvested hemp) can yield $50-$100/lb of dried flower (market rates vary widely). But if you extract the flower, you'll probably end up with an extract with THC levels well over 0.3% THC and that limits your market (you cannot cross state lines with that product). That may not be a problem if there is a big enough market for hemp extract in your state. Otherwise, you're going to have to resort to THC reduction techniques like column chromatography and/or distillation.

  3. This was a real informative video about beginning in the hemp industry. Good insight into the upsides and potential downsides when harvesting.

  4. My boss started a 6 acre Hemp field this year, I have worked in the field 3 times so far…looks like around 60% of the seed grew.

  5. This was more focused on perhaps the more lucrative side about the flowers and CBD oils. I would have like to see in the video more science facts which may have been available at the seminar. Is there research of the fibers of the plant while controlling the THC below 3% including percentage increments to 1% and what affects this has on its strength composition studies. We know with metals it has been done in metallurgy with metal alloys to create the various properties of (carbon based) steel. I read studies show fiber board from hemp is comparably strong as steel. (HAVE TO VERIFY THIS). The Seed Oils could replace dirty fossil fuel Usage. (Petroleum Industry would fight it) I say Coal Miners get out the dirty dangerous mines and in the sun to grow seeds for a clean environmentally safe oil energy source. This could be a ecological financial breakthrough, game changer, tree saver, carbon emission eliminator. NO DRILLING, SAFETY REGULATIONS AND COST FROM ACCIDENTS. Private Research that could not stopped by a powerful industry to find it this would be cost effective should be funded

  6. The monsoons are going to spread all this hemp in Indian and cannabis and CBD all into the Federal reserve charging water facility at Sam Lena Park exactly or days hundreds of thousands of seeds ancient Babylon

  7. Red tape i n Colorado is about 1 hour of work and a $500 check. Then reports that are about 15 mins to fill out.

  8. The regulations are what's bs. If you're zoned ag and you already a crop farmer you should be able play with whatever crops you want to. Imo

  9. I am the manufacturer of hemp dryer. We can design machines with different capacity according to your requirements. My whatsapp/skype/wechat:+8618765682227

  10. Brian, my names Connor, im 27 and from the California valley. Its about to blow up out here. Im working to be a rep for some growers out here and want to be part of the new insustry thats about to be created out here. Id love to even do some sort of an interview or just chat on the phone with you for 15mins if you ever find the time. Let me know, loved the video ill look for a similar event around here i can attend! =)

  11. I've been thinking about doing the same thing on my property.. The only problem is I don't know who to sell my hemp stock to?

  12. How can I find out how much I need to grow? How do I find out how to take it to market? What do you do with it once its harvested?

  13. 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.

  14. Gratitude for sharing this bit education of your experience! Helpful, informative & well organized vid, love it! This sacred plant has a lot to do with all our healing & knowing a grower is key or be one! Awesomeness

  15. When they say good ground what exactly do they mean? Loam,clay,sandy? As far as nutrition, I have no idea

  16. Its mandatory to plant some hemp and cannabis plants. You have a farm, water, Soil, Sun… You dont need 1-6,000 acers. Try a row of 50 plants year one. Hope to hear from you. I'm in Johnson, VT.

  17. Maybe start small.
    Family, friends and local community will always support a passion. Small will help ensure quality while your getting the swing. ..and local quality sells.
    See how that rolls and step up from there.
    Great videos.

  18. Are we getting hemp and marijuana confused? I didn't know that hemp formed buds. I also did not know that hemp has CBD. Hemp was planted in fields really close together like corn but what I see in this video is supposedly hemp planted individually in grow bags.. this is the way marijuana is grown not the way industrial hemp is grown.. can someone please un confuse me ?

  19. I live in upstate Ny same situation old dairy farm plenty of good pastures. I am not really looking to make tons of cash just enough to cover taxes and costs with a bit to set aside. I would love to be able to move forward with this but it does seem like a lot of prep. I subscribed just to track your progress please continue to share whenever you can. Thanks

  20. 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.

  21. You could just start small and do a season of just seed production to use the next year, it'd save on seed cost and give some experience while not having to commit much resources. Then from that experience adjust as necessary and scale up gradually… of course, you'd need a different revenue stream or side job. Could produce some cannabis sativa also 🙂
