Close to Fremont, Nebraska final October, I visited a feral Cannabis Hemp patch with plant breeder Dave West, PhD. Ripe with bowing seed heads, the colors and aromas have been enchanting.

Dr. Dave goes on to recount the history of the hemp business in Nebraska, from the introduction of hemp farming to the Native Americans on reservations to the later introduction of Kentucky hemp. For a lot additional, take a look at Dr. Dave’s Hemp Archives:
