On this week's episode of the Industrial Hemp Podcast, we celebrate Hemp History Week with a handful of stories about hemp’s role in history through the ages, as well as hemp related news such as the USDA’s most recent guidance on industrial hemp and the FDA’s hearing on CBD.
Then, host Eric Hurlock interviews Alex Seleznov, the president and founder of Advanced Extractions, a hemp CBD company in Colorado. Seleznov tells the story of how he founded the company in 2015, what he thinks the FDA regulations on CBD might mean for the industry, and he offers advice to farmers interested in growing hemp.
This show was sponsored in part by the National Hemp Association (https://nationalhempassociation.org/) and NAU Country Insurance Company, now offering Industrial Hemp Crop-Hail Protection (https://www.naucountry.com/)
