In an effort to shed light on this opaque market, Brightfield Group, in partnership with HelloMD, has collected data from over 2,400 HelloMD medicinal cannabis community members from the United States (primarily California) and abroad. The resulting analysis provides insight into their experiences and perceptions of CBD products - both hemp-derived and marijuana-derived. The insights that follow provide further context for those looking to better understand, invest or expand in the CBD market.
CBD Products | The term ‘CBD products’ refers to any and all products that fall into the following categories: Hemp-derived CBD, marijuana-derived CBD-only, or CBD-dominant. CBD Users | The term ‘CBD users’ refers to any respondent who uses one or more of the following three types of products: Hemp-derived CBD, marijuana-derived CBD-only, or CBD-dominant. For the purposes of this study: Glossary of Terms CBD-Only Products | Can be derived from hemp or marijuana, although on a molecular level all CBD-only products are identical, containing negligible amounts of THC. Though we distinguish between hempderived and marijuana-derived CBD-only products throughout the study, the only meaningful difference between them is the terpene profile that accompanies the two plants. CBD-Dominant Products | Refers to CBD in combination with other compounds extracted from the marijuana plant. Generally, CBD-dominant products have varying concentrations of CBD, and a lesser amount of THC. These products typically declare a ratio of CBD:THC, such as 5:1, meaning it contains 5x as much CBD as it does THC. For the purposes of this study, CBD-dominant products are considered to be those with CBD:THC ratios of 1:1 or higher. THC-Dominant Products | Refers to products dominant in THC and containing varying concentrations of other compounds, such as CBD. For the purposes of this study, THC-dominant products are considered those with a ratio of 2:1 THC:CBD or higher. Entourage Effect | A theory that posits that any cannabinoid is more effective when combined with companion cannabinoids from the same plant. For instance, CBD works best when used in conjunction with THC (and other cannabinoids).11

Kansas State University’s horticulture center near the city might not be closing after all. The university in June said it planned to close the John C. Pair Horticulture Center in Haysville as part of a $3.5 million budget reduction for the College of Agriculture and Research and Extension. The center’s director, Jason Griffin, and a task force were asked to develop a plan to find $230,000 in new revenue sources each year for a center with annual revenue of about $30,000. The Wichita Eagle reports those plans include research on industrial hemp. The center says university leaders foresee the center becoming the primary research location for hemp crops in Kansas, which could bring in grants. Operating revenue could be generated from certified plants and seeds.

Industrial Hemp as a Climate Solution
Capturing up to 20 tons of carbon per acre, cannabis has the ability to sequester carbon directly from the atmosphere.
One acre of industrial hemp has the potential to capture up to 20 tons of carbon. It grows quickly too, having one of the fastest CO2-to-biomass conversion found in nature. In just 100 days, it can grow to four meters and would even grow larger and faster by 44 percent under conditions of high levels of atmospheric carbon.

Christianson said the facility now uses 500 pounds to 750 pounds of hemp per week. Christianson expects the plant will be able to process 2,000 pounds per week in February if he has the staff and equipment in place. Quist said the plant is producing 65 kilograms of whole plant extract oil per month from the hemp.
