Hemp corridor sprouts along U.S. 160


This year, Colorado licensed more than 2,500 acres for hemp production, leading a farmer, a biochemist and a manufacturer to sprout a viable hemp industry in Southwest Colorado.

The process started in Mancos, where farmer Scott Perez planted three varieties of hemp seed this year.

Perez joined forces with Durango biochemist Scott Ottersberg, who was working to launch Green Lab Solutions to analyze hemp seeds to determine cannabidiol levels, or CBDs. After a laboratory analysis, the hemp was expected to continue east along U.S. 160 to Green Leaf Production Co. in Bayfield, where the hemp seed would be processed into oil.
