Historic rail shipment is claimed

Share this:

Seventeen thousand pounds of hemp biomass has been dispatched by freight train from California to Colorado in what the growers say is the first interstate shipment of hemp by rail since prohibition of the crop 84 years ago. The CBD biomass was shipped from a depot in Fowler, California to a research and development lab in Denver, Colorado. The hemp, grown at the Golden State Hemp farm in Fresno, was shipped by Golden State and Other World Management Inc. Jeff Friedland, Golden State CEO, said 17,000 pounds of hemp can yield as much as 377 kilos of CBD oil, depending on the efficiency of the lab and the quality of the plant.
