On this episode of Let’s Be Blunt, Montel talks with Chris Boucher. Chris began growing hemp in the early 1990s in China, Poland, Hungary, and Romania. In 1991, he founded The Hempstead Company, one of the first hemp clothing and seed businesses to open in the US since the 1930s. The company sold products to more than 4,000 stores in 10 countries. In 1992, he co-founded The True Hemp Industry Association, now known as the Hemp Industries Association. Then in 1994, he became the first person in modern times permitted to legally grow a hemp crop in the US, at the USDA Research Center in Brawley, California. In 2014, he established a large, sustainable hemp farm in California to support his educational, commercial, and advocacy activities and now today, he is CEO of Farmtiva, Inc. which breeds and sells CBD fiber and grain seeds and co-founder of Juicetiva Hemp CBDA Powder.
