West Virginia is seeing the growth and support needed to become a player in the American hemp industry, thanks to hardworking entrepreneurs devoting their professions to doing so.
There are a few companies spearheading hemp growth in the state.
The West Virginia Hemp Industries Association fundraised and organized a legislative effort to discuss supply chain development and policy in the trenches of the WV Legislature. Visit wvhia.org to support or participate in their efforts!
