In 2014, changes in US laws opened the door for research and development of industrial hemp, and within a few years, many states had launched pilot programs. Those were followed by the 2018 Farm Bill which relabeled hemp an agricultural product and not a controlled substance. The new label was all industry leaders needed to start building a domestic supply chain for the natural fiber. The discussion will highlight the current status of hemp in the US, its future outlook, and a call for collaboration in building a domestic sustainable supply chain.
