About Us

The Hemp Farming Act of 2018 was incorporated in the 2018 United States farm bill and became law on December 20, 2018, removing hemp (defined as cannabis with less than 0.3% THC) from its archaic classification as a Schedule I controlled substance and making it an ordinary agricultural commodity, providing the beginnings of an exciting new market. 

Unfortunately, as can be the case for many emerging markets, the first year was not a fruitful one. Obstacles and outcomes were not thought through, shortcuts were made, and farmers and investors were left to suffer critical losses in the wake of an opportunity that seemed as simple as literally growing a weed. 

Cedar Valley saw the mistakes that were made and began to create solutions to overcome them.
