WICHITA FALLS (KFDX/KJTL) – Day Off Productions hosted the first North Texas-Southern Oklahoma hemp summit to help educate Texomans on marijuana and hemp usage, laws and consumption facts.
The 2018 Farm Bill removed the hemp plant from being an illegal drug and legalized commercial hemp farming. Day Off Productions and AMFAHH corporation believe it was important to educate the public.
In December, Congress agreed to the final version of the U.S. Farm Bill. The U.S. Farm Bill legalized hemp which is a plant closely related to marijuana and a key component of CBD oil. Brian Farris with Day Off Productions said hemp can be used in a lot of different ways that will prove to be beneficial.
“It’s able to go and do things what other molecules can’t because the hemp molecules are the strongest molecule, molecularly that we have on the earth. So, being able to have this to a point where we can grow it, harvest it, and then break it down to its molecular form we are able to get it to a level where we can put it into anything,” Farris said.
Joshua Spooner from AMFAHH Corp. said there are some misunderstandings about hemp.
“I think a lot of people get stuck up in the fact that it’s not just about CBD and I think that’s one of the biggest misconceptions and that the real industry lies within the uses of hemp because we believe it’s one of the most disruptive plants in all industries,” Spooner said.
Farris said it is their job to educate the public.
“We are going to be able to come into the communities that we go into and we are going to be able to give education processes. Not only education about the product but able to put money into education. Because we are going to be bringing in a lot of top tier jobs into Wichita Falls,” Farris said.
Farris and Spooner wanted to have this meeting to inform the public of what hemp is and the legalities of the U.S. Farm Bill and they hope this summit did just that.
