So not the quite a panacea for going a "cheaper" road for medicinal quality.
Huge potential for a state that really has agriculture centered only in the Willamette Valley, which is fine...This is a borderline desert shrub; Eastern Central and Steens and Blue Mountain areas would be badass for hemp farming, especially interlaced with all the Medicago sativa that is grown everywhere else around there.....
Thanks, hemp is a fascinating topic that I pretty much ignored until a few months ago. Its also a cannabis plant that might be grown in those localities that still don't permit high THC varieties, which is most of the east side of the state. I have friends who live out south of Christmas Valley who would love to grow, but marijuana (using the slave name is valid in this context) is banned in their locality, they might be interested in hemp.
Here are some topical photos I took at Hempstalk, I got some hemp flower
Beautiful golden hemp oil, 26% CBD. Those purple stalks in the background are from hemp purps.
All them seeds
