S1 Ep 2 – Demystifying Hemp

Wisconsin’s hemp industry is booming, and for good reason. We’ve got great farming roots, so it’s only natural that our economy’s structure should follow right? Well, not always. 

When one of our clients here at First Federal entered into the hemp industry, we learned there are not many banking resources for farmers who want to grow green. In some cases, there’s no banking option at all.

So, we stepped up and researched to understand the differences between the legal hemp and the current Wisconsin-illegal marijuana plant. The result is a banking program for hemp farmers that works with the systems in place rather than against them.

On this episode of Keeping It Local, we’ll talk about how people are making businesses from the hemp, the history of hemp in Wisconsin, the benefits of CBD, and more.
