Hemp Products, Production Systems, and Distribution
Having been cultivated for over 10,000 years, cannabis is one of the oldest agricultural crops in history. These tall, hardy plants were grown by early humans for rope, seed, oil, and fabric. These plants were selectively bred for industrial purposes, and have evolved into the type of cannabis we now know as hemp. Students will study the different products created from hemp, the technical requirements for oil extraction and processing, and distribution challenges and potential. Emphasis will be placed on understanding the costs, challenges, and benefits of each product and the market niche, along with the development of socially sustainable hemp businesses. Students will create business plans that demonstrate an understanding of the science and technical needs for a variety of hemp-based products.
