A little more about us


Friends of HEMP is a 501(c)(3) created to raise and distribute charitable funding in pursuant of advancing the industrial hemp industry. Friends of HEMP strives to  fund initiatives that progress the education and marketability of this important crop that supports farmers, small businesses, families, and the environment.

All donations are tax deductible.  




A little more about hemp

Before passage of the 2014 Farm Bill, United States federal law prohibited industrial hemp production; but the inclusion of Sec 7606 opened industrial hemp production for research and pilot scale projects. The 2018 Farm Bill officially removed hemp from the Drug Enforcement Agencies Controlled Substances Act placing the valuable crop under the Agricultural Marketing Act of 1946. 

With this change in regulation, the industry is free to advance research, education and commercialization of hemp derived goods which have applications across a wide range of market sectors including: health foods, construction materials, textiles, automotive applications, pharmaceuticals, nutraceuticals, industrial oils, technology, animal feeds and so much more!
