Canadian Hemp: A Plant with Opportunity
Since 1998, Canada has grown industrial hemp for seed and for fibre. Canadian farmers and businesses are interested in the growing business of hemp as it realizes its potential to produce healthy food and environmentally friendly products, including paper, textiles, biocomposites and sustainable building materials.

Today Canada’s hemp sector is growing to provide secure supplies of hemp seed and fibre raw materials for domestic and international markets, as well as many processed and conditioned value–added products. Canada’s federal hemp regulations help to create quality, safety and accountability. A supportive scientific research community ensures that essential and necessary research continues ~ critical for any crop.

As a fast–growing annual, hemp is a renewable, reusable and recyclable resource. Hemp is bio-degradable and helps co2 and ch4 methane reduction, increases soil health and combats crop disease. Hemp will play a key role in building a green economy!

Sturgeon County is well poistioned to support the hemp industry, featuring a hemp-friendly climate and class 1 soils. If you have grown hemp or are considering it in the future, please join us for more information and discussion at this upcoming online meeting:
