Providing healthy hemp products to the world, Hobgood Hemp recently held an Open House to showcase its expansion and demonstrate how CBD is extracted. Ron Elkins, partner, says the company’s primary mission is to provide a healthy hemp product, share how CBD is produced, and the benefits to humans and pets.
In 2022, Hobgood Hemp purchased its primary co-manufacturer, bringing all manufacturing and hemp processing under its roof. Hobgood Hemp produces and sells CBD products in the form of oils (tinctures), topicals, and ingestible products.
“We want to create opportunities for jobs and experiences in our area,” commented Elkins. “We want to help this area grow.”
The 2018 Farm Bill reclassified hemp, removing obstacles to grow industrial hemp in North Carolina. Cannabis extracts from industrial hemp are legal as long as the THC content does not exceed 0.3%.
Hobgood Hemp is already partnering with Hobgood Charter School for horticulture and chemistry classes. For more information about the company and its products, visit www.HobgoodHemp.com.
