Hemp Legalization and The Farm Bill
Human agriculture started about 10,000 years ago and hemp was most likely one of the first cultivated crops. It is an extremely versatile crop with multiple uses back then and even more uses today.

American farmers including our founding father George Washington grew hemp as a staple crop in the 1700's. But it only became legal in 2018 with the passing of that year's Farm Bill.

So why did it take so long for the US to harness the power of hemp? Today we dive into the history of hemp and CBD.
