Businesses with hemp-based products face a number of challenges, among them from legislatures. One organization is working to make consumers aware of the benefits of hemp.
Jerry Kay spoke with Joanna Schultz of the Hemp Industry Association.
Schultz said that the Hemp Industry Association is a group of businesses and others who are dedicated to the commercialization of hemp products worldwide, and the education of consumers and businesses about the benefits of hemp.
She said that hemp is a great substitute for products made from petrochemical-based products such as plastics. Hemp can be used in fiberboard, paper, and even concrete-like products.
