IBJ Podcast: Hamilton County emerges as player in hemp industry

Hamilton County is emerging as a key player in the evolving hemp industry, primarily in the area of refining CBD oils from the plants for use in a variety of products.

IBJ reporter Kurt Christian talks with host Mason King about what some are calling a “green rush,” which follows a 2018 federal law that removed marijuana’s non-psychoactive cousin from the Controlled Substances Act.

As a result, hemp-processing companies are investing millions of dollars into refineries across Hamilton County in an effort to close a gap in the state’s CBD supply chain.
