Struggling American family farms are praising a cash crop worth more than US$45,000 per acre. According to projections by market research firm Brightfield Group, the hemp-derived CBD boom isn’t cropping up nearly as much attention in Canada.

Lisa and Josh want to be part of the revival of family farms in Wisconsin. That’s why, this year, they decided to plant hemp in northwestern Wisconsin to produce CBD. With the help of their four kids, the couple hand-dug holes for around 70 hemp plants with seeds certified with the state. They manually pulled weeds and carefully tended to each plant for months. Lisa put her career as a business consultant and educator on hold to work full-time in the field. Lisa and Josh are looking at a complete loss this season — about $40,000, not including all their time and effort. The Wisconsin Department of Agriculture and Consumer Protection (DATCP), in accordance with federal law, requires hemp farmers’ crops to pass a test ensuring THC — the compound in marijuana that gets you high — is under .3 percent. Lisa and Josh’s crop tested at .5 percent — which in the industry is known as coming in “hot.” As a result, DATCP ordered the couple to destroy it.


CBD has some health benefits. Not many are proven and the average product probably doesn’t have a high enough dose to have an effect. Daniele Piomelli, director of the Institute for the Study of Cannabis at the University of California, Irvine, has heard it all when it comes to CBD’s benefit and how it can be consumed — in chocolates, sprays and even clothing. “People are treating CBD as a vitamin or a micronutrient, but it’s truly become a hype-based thing,” he said. Furthermore, the dosage needed to produce any effects is typically in the 500 to 1,000 milligrams range, far more than what you are likely to receive in a product, Piomelli said.

During the interview, she also opened up about her diet and medication, which includes a daily antidepressant (to help with "waves of serotonin imbalance," she says), a daily dose of CBD oil and adaptogens, a form of herbal medicine. 

For the second time in as many months, medicinal cannabis supplies in New Zealand have been depleted. 2 of main Cannabidiol (CBD) products generally available in New Zealand are out of stock, with neither of the products expected to have stock until the end of November at the earliest. These products are from different sources, with both Swiss and Canadian products affected.
