Capitalizing on the ideal year-round climate, consistent sunlight, and cooling trade winds, Hawaii’s sugar plantations once cultivated over 220,000 acres of sugar cane. At the time, Hawaii supplied one-tenth of the sugar that was consumed in the continental United States!
On a per-acre level, sugarcane generated just under five hundred dollars in revenue. Comparatively, hemp-derived CBD generates as much as forty-five thousand dollars per acre. This is very exciting for both the State of Hawaii and the small farmer.
With thousands of different uses for industrial hemp, our company believes that hemp can fill the void that was left when the sugar and pineapple plantations ceased operations by ushering in a new era of agriculture and manufacturing in Hawaii. Hemp will become a vital part of the economy, and will relieve some of Hawaii’s dependence on tourism.
