Summary, etc.:
"Gonzo journalist-turned-farmer Doug Fine shares a ground-level view of the burgeoning hemp industry. Hemp is the non-psychoactive variant of cannabis, one of humanity's oldest plant allies, and the industry surrounding it has quietly become the fastest ever to generate a billion dollars of annual revenue in North America. From fiber to seed to oil to the currently ubiquitous cannabinoid CBD, hemp could lead the way toward a new, regenerative economy-but only if we do it right. Following the success of his first book, Hemp Bound, journalist, author, and "neo-rugged individualist goat herder" Doug Fine put his money where his mouth was, getting his hands dirty with healthy soil and sticky with terpenes en route to growing his own hemp crop and creating his own hemp product. In American Hemp Farmer, Doug shares his adventures and misadventures as a farmer and entrepreneur, all the while laying out a vision for how hemp can help right the wrongs of twentieth-century agriculture, and how you can be a part of it"-- Provided by publisher.
