Hemp farming
Hemp farming is growing in popularity in Tennessee. More than 2,600 farmers are licensed to grow hemp in the volunteer state this year. Currently five farms have a license to grow more than 1,000 acres of hemp. State officials say this year's planned hemp acreage is an increase of more than 1,100% in just one year. Hemp is similar to marijuana but does not contain THC that creates euphoria, is legal to grow through a pilot program of the Tennessee Department of Agriculture. Hemp is generally grown as a fiber to make cloth and rope or for the production of CBD, which is promoted as having broad but often-unverified health benefits.
