Toxic to Profit is a research program to advance the proven environmental value of hemp to remove heavy metals and other pollutants from the soil. The value is for brownfield improvement and industrial site management. This is a long-term project based on some of our leading experts in hemp remediation. It was a Finalist in the Hemp Innovation Challenge at 2020's World Ag Expo.
There is no doubt that hemp seed has very high nutritional and economic value. It is not taken seriously simply because we are still overcoming 80+ years of marijuana politics. We are strategically aligned with the Hemp Feed Coalition to promote this multi-billion dollar aspect of the industry. Current status: Modest research and administrative costs are needed to comply with FDA feed guidelines. The Hemp Feed Coalition is doing everything right.
