About America’s Hemp Industry

It’s clear that hemp will become a major American agricultural crop.

After having been illegal since 1937, Hemp was legalized a little over a year ago when the 2018 Farm Bill was signed into law, Since then, the hemp industry and along with it, the hemp-derived CBD industry, have become two of America’s fastest-growing new industries.

The market research firm, Grand View Research, Inc. projects that the global hemp market will reach $10.6 billion in annual sales by 2025. To put this in perspective, in 2018 the US soybean market generated revenues of $23 billion and the US corn market of $51 billion.
