MinneInno writes about the number of hemp startups launching in Minnesota post-signing of the 2018 Farm Bill. It highlights Hemony, (DISCLOSURE: I am a partner in Hemony) as part of the new “crop” of hemp startups in the state.
“Hemony is part of this fresh crop of startups. Established earlier this year, the company aims to offer high-quality health products created from hemp.”
The article highlights the importance of CBD as driving the movement into hemp. Additionally, the piece does an excellent job in background on the state’s hemp program which will need to be modified to conform with the 2018 Farm Bill.
“There’s a ton of energy surrounding Hemp in Minnesota. It really has the potential to make a difference, both for the people growing it and those using it,” Robins said. “Have an open mind – be willing to test a completely new segment of products grown from a plant that has all these incredible health benefits.”
The number of cultivators and processors have exploded in Minnesota in Q1 of 2019, according to a recent CityPages article. Keep an eye out for more startups launching, such as Stigma, which is holding its public launch later today.
