Hemp Cutting Ceremony will Celebrate State's First Industrial Hemp Crop Since WWII - You're Invited

Tue, 30 Oct 2018 12:01:40 CDT

Hemp Cutting Ceremony will Celebrate State's First Industrial Hemp Crop Since WWII - You're Invited Oklahoma farmers interested in hemp production are invited to attend a hemp cutting ceremony, hosted by Herbís Herbs at Oklahomaís oldest and largest greenhouse to celebrate the harvest of the first Industrial Hemp crop in the state of Oklahoma since World War II.

Industrial Hemp is a form of cannabis sativa, but does not contain the psychoactive chemical compound delta-9 tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). Industrial Hemp has many uses ranging from paper to molded plastics and most recently hemp derived CBD oil that is used for medical purposes. Following the Agricultural Act of 2014 otherwise known as the 2014 Farm Bill, Oklahoma legislators passed House Bill 2913 earlier this year making it legal to grow industrial hemp in Oklahoma. Furthermore, the Agricultural Improvement Act of 2018 is expected to pass later this year making industrial hemp legal to grow in all 50 states.

Herbís Herbs LLC is owned and operated by Herb Suehring, his daughter Tara Tischauser and her husband Jesse Tischauser. The trio also own Guthrie Greenhouses and the Red Dirt Plants brand. After the passing of House Bill 2913 earlier this year, Herbís Herbs partnered with Langston University as part of the Oklahoma Industrial Hemp Agricultural Pilot Program and planted their first hemp crop. This will be their first industrial hemp harvest and possibly the first substantial hemp harvest in all of Oklahoma since government subsidies allowed hemp cultivation during WWII.

The event will take place Thursday, November 1 at 2:00 p.m. and located at 1227 N Wentz Street, Guthrie, OK. Those planning on attending the event are asked to RSVP as soon as possible by contacting organizers at info@herbsherbs.com or by calling 1-833-437-2743.
