We'll have to stop you right there. Legacy Hemp is not in the business of CBD. Hemp grown for CBD is grown completely different than hemp grown for grain or fiber. CBD (Cannabidiol) and other cannabinoids are harvested in the flower material whereas Legacy Hemp is after the seed (grain) and stalks. Our seed varieties cannot be used to create significant cannabioid concentrations. Please visit our Hemp Varieties page to learn more about the different varieties of hemp.
1) Field Selection
2) Seedbed Preparation

Industrial hemp is not like your average crop. Because of the similarities to its intoxicating cousin, hemp requires a special license in the states where it is approved to be grown. Check with your state's department of agriculture to apply for this license.
Legacy Hemp only partners with farmers who are willing to contract for the next growing season and who also already have a production contract with a buyer in place. Legacy hemp does not recommend buying seed without a preexisting production contract in place.
Keep in mind that some hemp products require the grain to be certified organic. This differs from "all natural" and other appeals to the health food industry. If your production contract is for certified organic grain it could take up to three years to get a field certified as organic.

You have a great question there! The fibers in the stock and hurd of the hemp plant can be processed into a variety of hemp products.
Hemp fiber has great potential in building materials, animal bedding, clothing, and even as superconductors in electronics for its high natural tensile strength. Products like those used in building material trap carbon, preventing it from returning to the carbon cycle. This aids in slowing the negative effects of climate change.
Next year, legacy hemp will begin processing hemp fibers for some of these applications, but our current focus is on the grains.
Keep us in mind; write us down. We plan to be processing hemp fiber soon. We too see the value in hemp fiber.
