With the passing of the 2018 Farm Bill, the United States hemp industry has seen a tremendous boom in productivity, which is particularly true for the 24 states that were actively growing hemp as of 2018. In fact, the total American surface area used for hemp production reached 78,176 acres, up from 25,713 the year before (2017) and 9,649 the year before that (2016).

Vote Hemp has compiled this information and issued an annual Hemp Crop Report since 2016, documenting the licensed cultivation of hemp in the United States. The hemp cultivation data was provided by the states’ departments of agriculture. In 2018, Vote Hemp contacted each of the 41 states that were authorized for hemp production.

In addition, the organization estimates that roughly 70% of the licensed acreage was planted, while in terms of indoor-planted hemp, they considered every 40,000 square foot area equal to one acre. It is, however, important to mention that these annual reports don’t mention the amount of hemp that’s been harvested.

In any case, five additional states have started growing hemp in 2018. These are:

  • Illinois, 1 acre
  • Massachusetts, 21 acres
  • Oklahoma, 445 acres
  • South Carolina, 256 acres
  • Wisconsin, 1,850 acres

In terms of top hemp-producing states, however, we have Colorado, which went from 9,700 planted hemp acres in 2017 to 21,578 in 2018. Montana, on the other hand, had only 542 hemp acres planted in 2017 and spiked to over 22,000 in 2018.

In terms of licensed hemp acres, Colorado currently has about 80,000, up 562% from 2017 when the state had licensed 12,042. Oregon has had a whopping 700% increase from 2017 with 51,000 outdoor acres licensed, up from 7,800 acres the year prior.

The Data Is Still Coming In

Due to the relatively new state of the hemp industry, the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) still doesn’t have accurate acreage reports. Expectations are that this information will be available sometime in the future.

President of Vote Hemp, Eric Steenstra, said that this information is essential for the future of the industry. “Quantifying what people are investing in the industry data has been critical to advancing hemp policy and advancing the industry.” 

He also went on to say, “Now that we have lifted federal prohibition on hemp farming, it’s time to invest our energy in expanding hemp cultivation and the market for hemp products across the country so that all can reap the benefits of this versatile, historic American crop.”

It’s important to note that hemp production is likely to increase by a significant margin in 2019, given the fact that hemp and hemp-derived CBD products have been removed from the Controlled Substances Act. This means that farmers and producers will be eligible for crop insurance, farm loans, and all other types of federally-backed assistance programs.

What’s To Be Expected in 2019 and Beyond?

Since the data is still coming in, there’s no exact way of knowing what to expect from the hemp farming industry in the coming years. Some farmers, however, expect a high influx of new competitors.

Hemp-derived CBD sales are expected to rise in the coming five years by anywhere in between $6.1 billion and $7.5 billion. These do not include sales of hemp grain and fiber products. The global industrial hemp market is expected to grow from $4.6 billion in 2019 to $26.6 billion by 2025.

Balance your immune system with CBD oil

Having a healthy immune system is so important. The feeling of constantly being sick or feeling under the weather can just get so exhausting! Did you know that when you are stressed your immune system becomes suppressed, making you more susceptible to the flu? At a time where stress levels are high (thanks COVID), we are all striving to keep our immune systems boosted. So, how can CBD oil help boost your immune system?

Immune function

Studies have shown that endocannabinoids control your immune function and play an important role in maintaining balance. Your endocannabinoid system works to maintain balance in your body. It sends signals through your body when a part is not functioning optimally, allowing your body to respond to the potential danger signal and take the steps necessary to bring your body back in balance.

One of the two main receptors used by the endocannabinoid system are your CB2 receptors. These CB2 receptors are found in your immune system. They play a role in helping to moderate inflammation and are involved in how your body responds to unwanted germs. These receptors help regulate the effectiveness of your immune response. They assist in assessing the threat, they then communicate where your body needs to boost its defenses and indicates how strong the defenses must be.

How CBD boosts your immune system

Research shows that cannabis oil has immunomodulating effects. This means that cannabis oil can actively boost your immune system when you are feeling run down, as well as suppressing your immune system when it becomes overactive. When you are stressed your body produces the stress hormone, Cortisol. Cortisol plays a role in suppressing your immune system by reducing your lymphocyte count. Lymphocytes are our white blood cells that help fight off infection. In other words, the lower your lymphocyte level, the less effective your immune system is. CBD oil is known to assist with your body’s ability to cope with stress and has been shown to boost a weakened immune system, therefore helping to defend your body against infection and illness.

Cannabis oil can actively boost your immune system when you are feeling run down, as well as suppressing your immune system when it becomes overactive.

How does CBD help with an overactive immune system?

If you suffer from an autoimmune disease such as psoriasis or Crohn’s disease, your immune system is overactive and it mistakes your healthy cells for foreign cells. In this case you want your immune system to slow down so it stops attacking your healthy cells. 

Your immune system cells use communication molecules called cytokines to regulate your immune system’s response. When your immune system picks up on a threat, your cytokines send a message to activate your body’s innate immunity for immediate protection from the threat. In the case of an auto-immune disease, your body mistakes your healthy cells as a threat.

What does CBD oil do in this case?

CBD binds to your body’s cytokines where it reduced the number of messages sent out to your immune system for help. This decreases the production of fighter cells your immune system produces in response to the threat. Slowing down your immune system’s mistaken attack on your healthy cells. 

Many of the over the counter medications that assist with autoimmune conditions, are synthetic and function only to suppress your immune system, which could leave you more vulnerable to infections.

Studies show that CBD manages these autoimmune conditions by only suppressing specific parts of the immune system. These effects are also not permanent, which means that when it needs to, your body can overcome the suppression effect of CBD to ramp your immune system back up if a new threat is detected.

Just in time for St.Patrick’s Day, let’s get shaking in the kitchen and make
Boozy Shamrock Shake with Cannabis Milk.

While some of us around the world may be able to partake in a little social activity, the chances of many are slim to none.

In light of that, let’s make the most of it and enjoy a St. Patrick’s Day at home.

March 17th falls on a Wednesday this year, and to celebrate you should probably know the history right?

It’s believed that St. Patrick’s Day started in 1631 when the Christian Church established a Feast Day honoring St.Patrick. He had been the patron saint of Ireland, and died in the 5th century.

His apparent death on March 17th remained a celebration day for years and is now enjoyed in a much different way – green beer, lots of fun, dancing and more!
