Myth #7: “Hemp is pest and disease resistant”

In the first few seasons growers saw few problems with pests. As the hemp footprint increased, more pest impact was detected. European corn bore, yellow army worms, aphids, grasshoppers, and other pests are beginning to damage plants.

Myth #6: “CBD is going to return HUGE profits to me”

Hemp has the potential for great profits. That doesn’t mean that it will be easy profits. Many hemp growers fail to make a return on investment in their first year.

Myth #5: “I can take my time with drying and storage”

In all hemp harvesting scenarios except for field-retting fiber, a drying process is required. A general rule of thumb is to make sure the harvested material is either in a drying process or has ample airflow within two hours of being cut.
