U.S. hemp harvest brings hope to some farmers, heartbreak to others

DENVER, Oct. 3 (UPI) — A glut of CBD oil on the market, severe weather and a complex harvesting process will make this year’s first mass hemp crop in 80 years in the United States a disappointment for many farmers.

As harvest season winds down and winter frosts threaten the northern United States, hemp is proving to be a complicated plant for farmers to harvest and process. Buyers for the crop are tapped out, which is driving prices down, industry observers say.
