Together, the group began discussing numerous and important ways that hemp is able to provide stimulation to our economic growth as well as our environmental health.
Bioremediation of Florida’s soils and farmlands was a major topic of discussion at the table where the studies of utilizing fibrous hemp to detoxify the soils and help with cleaning up Florida’s environment.
Florida’s water supply was a topic of discussion, and using the bioremediation as a basis of research, could open up doors to restoring the overall health of the state’s land and waters.
There are many items that must be addressed, including farming transitions, harvest, machinery, applications, early adoption, research, and education to name a few.
Processing hemp is in high demand all across the country, and Florida is widely known for its ports and networked railways and highways are meant for speedy transit of goods that are barely used, and could once again regain its purposes through hemp and cannabis.
Many more topics of discussion were had about the improvement of the economy and environment of Florida, and it was decided that West Pasco County would serve as a viable base of operation to initiate with.
