Hemp-processing plant opens in KokomoNovember 18, 2019
By The Associated Press
KOKOMO — A hemp-processing plant has opened in central Indiana to turn the state’s first legal crop into a market-ready product.
Kentucky-based Third Wave Farms opened the plant last month in Kokomo inside a 22,000-square-foot building.
It’s now equipped with machines that can dry and process over 75,000 pounds (34,000 kilograms) of hemp a day, turning it into a stable, storable, market-ready product that’s used in dozens of cannabinoid-based products, such as cannabidiol, or CBD oil.
CBD oil is a compound derived from hemp and marijuana that doesn't cause a high but which many people see as a way to better health.
The Kokomo Tribune reports Third Wave Farms is offering free tours of the facility in Kokomo, a city located about 40 miles (64 kilometers) north of Indianapolis.
