Hemp Industry Daily

It’s no secret that many insects love cannabis, but research shows that four main pests do the majority of damage to outdoor cultivation.

According to Whitney Cranshaw, an entomology professor and extension specialist at Colorado State University, researchers identified 150 genera of arthropods – insects, mites and spiders – in hemp fields during field sampling during the 2016, 2017 and 2018 growing seasons in Colorado.

A California hemp bill that would provide a long-awaited green light for hemp-derived CBD products has cleared the lower chamber – but the progress has set up a cannabis clash in the world’s largest state market.

The bill easily passed through the California Assembly and awaits action in the state Senate. It would legalize the distribution and sale of hemp-derived CBD in the state as an ingredient in foods, beverages and dietary supplements.

Organic hemp and marijuana products can fetch two and three times more than conventional cannabis, but the path to market is trickier than simply growing the plant without common pesticides.

Extraction and processing play critical roles in making organic cannabis products. Sloppy manufacturing, or even using the wrong cleaning agent on a piece of equipment, can derail plans to capitalize on growing consumer interest in organic products.
