Hemp: hemp column in Northwest Leaf

Jerry Whiting’s monthly hemp column

Leaf Life Podcast

Why you should eat hemp plant based foodsJerry Whiting writes a monthly column on industrial hemp and related topics in NW Leaf magazine where he shares his views and insights on the hemp industry as it unfolds.

The articles follow the hemp marketplace with a focus on the plant as an agricultural crop and its many applications from food to fiber to hempcrete. And of course, CBD from hemp.

You can read the current column at the top of the page. Our modest suggestion is to start at the bottom with the October 2018 column and binge read from start to finish. A story lurks within.

Jerry is in his 4th year writing this column and he’s not done yet!
