Industrial Hemp Professionals In The
Commonwealth Of Virginia, USA

In 1619, James Fort (the first successful European settlement established in the Americas) became known as Jamestown as the Church of England was replaced with the House of Burgesses as the legislative force in the new world. That same year marked the beggining of hemp's legislative use in the new world when it bacame a legal obligation for any gentleman owning 100 acres or more to grow hemp for the British Navy. Failure to do so resulted in a heavy fine by the Crown. In the 1930's, industrial giants in competing industries began a campaign to convince the public to ban hemp through propaganda that lied about hemp and created confusion between industrial hemp and other hemp such as marijuana. Their ban was lifted during World War II because the U.S. Navy needed hemp for rope for their ships. After the war, the ban resumed until 2014 when the Farm Bill allowed industrial hemp to be grown for University research. The 2018 Farm Bill (signed in on December 20th, and later ammended in 2019) allows for industrial hemp to be grown outside the scope of research for commercial use. Hence, the forming of Jamestown Hemp as a processor of industrial hemp for farmers in Virginia as we resume our historic production of this amazing crop.
