Unlocking The Value of Hemp in Pennsylvania
Unlocking the value of hemp in PA requires investment in processing infrastructure. The industrial process that converts the raw crop into its many valuable commercial products is called “decortication.” Hemp building blocks for sustainable construction and hemp fibers for clothing require different levels of decortication, but every hemp entrepreneur needs a dependable way to convert the harvested crop into finished products for their markets. State support and private investment in decortication facilities are the first step in jumpstarting PA’s regional bioeconomy.
