PALM BEACH, Fla., May 02, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Cannabis Briefing: When companies find a product where demand is outpacing the supply, they have to find a better way to increase output… for CBD farm operations, it is either adding more acreage, or finding better ways to cultivate (such as greenhouses). Many outdoor farmers are turning to replacing their existing crops with CBD producing plants. The greenhouse operations generally produce a better quality crop and they are growing by erecting more greenhouses and acquiring cultivation companies. But the outdoor farmers are driven by the increased revenues they can get from switching to a CBD producing crop. An article on CCN’s website discussed this trend, saying: “Farmers across the United States have been rushing into hemp ever since President Donald Trump signed the Farm Bill into law in December (2018). The legislation removed hemp from the government's controlled drug category, triggering a surge in demand for cannabidiol, or CBD, a chemical that is derived from hemp and marijuana plants. Farms that were already growing hemp are seeing both demand and profits surge, while farmers who have never grown hemp before are rushing to plant it in their fields.” Active companies in the cannabis industry include: Neptune Wellness Solutions Inc. (TSX: NEPT.TO) (NASDAQ: NEPT), Canopy Growth Corporation (TSX: WEED.TO) (NYSE: CGC), Isodiol International Inc. (CSE: ISOL) (OTCQB:ISOLF), CROP INFRASTRUCTURE CORP. (CSE: CROP) (OTCPK: CRXPF).
"There's a lot of excitement in the farming community because hemp is seen as a high-return crop. There are many farmers around the country who are struggling to make ends meet and they're looking for an alternative like hemp to boost revenue," said Eric Steenstra, president of VoteHemp, a non-profit that advocates for the commercial sale of hemp. "Right now, CBD is the hot commodity and is a significant driver of the market and profit for farmers… We're trying to keep up with demand for CBD and scale up production," said an industry insider in the CNN article.
