With laws legalizing marijuana for recreational and/or medical use in various U.S. States, the market is growing, but also has plenty of room to expand further. This presentation will cover the current trends in cannabis as a food with emphasis on seed and oil. As background information, the history of cannabis in the U.S. to present day will be given to gain perspective as this food ingredient is increasing in popularity. Justben Agriculture, LLC established in 2016, is the first hemp farm in Pennsylvania in over 60 years. The farm was created to research hemp science and to provide food and fiber into a new growing market. The farm will be harvesting its first hemp crop this year.
