Myth #10: “I don’t need to be worried about cross-pollination when growing a CBD crop”

The best way to mitigate cross pollination is to grow indoors with air filters to protect the plants from uncontrolled pollination. But this is totally unrealistic for large scale operations.

Myth #9: “If I grow it someone will buy it.”

From 2018 to 2019, the number of acres of hemp grown in the U.S. quadrupled. Supply and demand kicked in, and an oversupply of CBD harvested material pushed prices down. Some regions of Colorado saw prices drop as much as 60% between the 2018 and 2019 growing seasons.

Myth #8: “Food safety isn’t a big deal”

Just because the FDA doesn’t have much regulation on hemp – yet – doesn’t mean that growers and processors are exempt from following quality and food-safe procedures.
