I was spending a fortune skipping all of my hemp and CBD products across the country to a distribution facility that could handle all of the processing.
I didn’t want to handle any of that on my end.
In the beginning, it made sense to send things across the country. The place I was using was absolutely the cheapest for hemp and CBD production. Then the company was shut down due to some problems with the government. I quickly had to find a new place to have the hemp and CBD products processed and distributed. I contacted a lawyer and marijuana consultant that is known to help with local farmers and issues that they have with the government paperwork. I contacted the consulting firm by email. I received a response the same business day. I gave the person some information by email and then she called the next day to set up an actual consultation with me. My dad had to go to the consultation as well, because both of our names are still on the farm. I took over business operations a couple of years ago, but the farm is still in both of our names. We met with the lawyer and marijuana consultant so we could find a new processing facility. The consultant had some really good ideas and some of them didn’t even include shipping our items out to a plant. There are new machines that can make processing hemp and CBD much easier. These machines can be set up directly at the farm and manned by employees from the company. The lawyer urged us to look into this option before we decided to choose a different manufacturer on the other side of the country.
