Publisher's Summary

The inside story of the world's most fascinating and lucrative crop from gonzo journalist turned hemp farmer Doug Fine

Hemp, the non-psychoactive variant of cannabis and one of humanity's oldest plant allies, has quietly become the fastest industry ever to generate a billion dollars of annual revenue in North America. From seed to fiber to the currently ubiquitous cannabinoid CBD, hemp is leading the way to a new regenerative economy that contributes to soil and climate restoration – but only if we do it right.

In American Hemp Farmer, author, NPR contributor, and solar-powered goat herder Doug Fine (Hemp Bound) gets his hands dirty with healthy soil and sticky with terpenes when growing his own crop and creating his own hemp products.

Throughout this book, Doug Fine shares his adventures and misadventures as an independent, regenerative farmer and entrepreneur, all the while laying out a vision for how hemp can help right the wrongs of 20th century agriculture – and how you can be a part of it.

Great Info, Beyond the Politics

I really liked this book overall. The writing is intelligent, easy to understand, and based in real-world context. Also, the narration is top-notch and easy to listen too.

It is a little heavy on the political and environmental indoctrination for my tastes, but don't let that get in the way of gaining the 1st hand knowledge that the author provides.

Overall, if you are interested in getting involved in the Hemp Industry, this book should be on your short list for research.
