Mission accomplished, Colorado is the FIRST state to grow and successfully harvest, without DEA interference, an industrial hemp crop in the US since 1957. — in Springfield, CO.
Today, over 40 people from around the country came to pick the first industrial hemp harvest by hand. The volunteers came from all over the country, including California, Texas, Idaho and more. This was a beautiful day and considering the Government is shut down, it was fascinating to see Americans in a farm field harvesting hemp by hand.
The planting was very sparse and we wanted to keep the roots for a remediation study. It was a very nostalgic and historic feeling, hard on the back. Next year will use machines.
