Well it was only a matter of time before a major celebrity decided to start their own hemp farm. Enter Beyoncé. Because, if you’ve got that much money, and love hemp, you might as well grow it yourself.
The CBD-to-hemp connection
According to past interviews, Beyoncé says her desire to start a hemp farm stems from her discovery of CBD. Using it on her last tour, Queen B noticed that, for her, it helped with soreness and inflammation along with lessening her restless nights.
Since CBD is the primary cannabinoid extracted from hemp, it only makes sense to go back to the source. Growing your own hemp means you have control over the genetics of your plants and can watch the quality all along the way. You’ll get exactly what you want out of the plant as the “farmer” who grows it.
Her farm isn’t only about hemp
Beyoncé also shared that her hemp farm will have another permanent resident, bees. She’s discovered the power of honey alongside CBD, noting that the healing properties in honey are positively impacting her children.
Bringing the two together, this farm will be a hemp and honey farm with fields of green and bee hives.
Celebrities love the cannabis industry
Although details on this special Beyoncé-backed farm are still hazy, the talented performer and actress isn’t the only celebrity who talks up hemp-derived products. She’s also not the only famous name to start their own farm. While he’s growing cannabis rather than hemp, Jim Belushi has a farm in Southern Oregon.
Other celebrities who either endorse or are developing cannabis products include Gwyneth Paltrow, Jay Z, Snoop Dogg, Kim Kardashian, and Jane Fonda, just to name a few.
Taking hemp to market
Of course, starting a hemp farm only places you at the beginning of the process that gets CBD to local stores. After harvesting and drying the plants, they must then go through an extraction process. This pulls the desired cannabinoid out of the biomass. The levels of refinement the compound must go through is ultimately determined by the final product you want. Some CBD compounds contain a mix of one popular cannabinoid and its siblings. Others remove every other compound but their star cannabinoid.
What’s great about hemp is that you have options in the end, and can find the product that’s right for you.
