Our boots first hit the ground in Denver, Colorado, followed by a month-long trip to Kentucky and Tennessee, and then on to Oregon, North Carolina, South Carolina, California, and Arizona. We met with seed providers, growers, processors, and groups with various distribution and retail channels. There were days we had soil from hemp fields covering our boots and trichomes under our fingernails and days with hair nets and booties while we watched harvested hemp travel through the extraction process, with the pleasing sounds of CO2 crackling as it released from the remnants.
We sat across several conference tables from leaders in each part of the supply chain, and we heard the unique vantage points, challenges, victories, and passion from every one of them.
We walked away with an invaluable and up-close education and understanding of the most exciting space that the United States has seen in a long time. Through this diligence and with this understanding, Generation Hemp has identified opportunity and has begun to build relationships with several supply chain operators.
