Episode 71: This week we talk to Jay Stucky, a CBD hemp farmer in upstate New York. His many concerns about the CBD industry include the high price of CBD and how processors and retailers are making all the money — not the farmers. In this wide ranging conversation, Stucky addresses the call to raise the THC level in hemp from 0.3% to 1%, which he says is not necessary.
Then we hear from Scott Bennett, the hemp policy expert at the American Farm Bureau Federation, whose delegates just voted to support raising the THC level in hemp to 1%.
