Hemp Is Hot Right Now: Is It Worth the Risk?

Despite headlines about legalization, there are serious regulatory, agronomic, and market risks that are being overlooked in the fervor around hemp, according to the Rabobank report, Hemp Is Hot Right Now. "Hemp and hemp-derived products like CBD will soon become a multibillion-dollar industry, but the road ahead is rocky, risky, and untraveled. For many hemp-curious farmers and investors, it might pay to sit on the sidelines a little longer," says RaboResearch analyst Bourcard Nesin.
