If you’re a regular reader, you may have noticed a new addition to the Hemp Grower home page.
Our team has worked to compile cultivation data from the 2020 season as states finalize those numbers. We’ve collected information about acres licensed vs. acres grown, indoor square feet licensed, growers licensed and processors licensed for each state where that information was available. HG obtained these numbers by contacting individual state departments of agriculture and the USDA.
That information is now available on the map you’ll see on the right side of our home page. To use the map, click on it and navigate to your state of interest. Click the marker on that state, and all available cultivation data for it will pop up.
We’ve also put the information into a chart on the same page below the map. You can change the view on that data by clicking the three dots at the top of whichever column you’d like to sort by.
Both the map and table are available here.
States’ varied methods of collecting data are apparent in the map and table. Blank spaces in the table indicate the information is either still being collected, or it is not tracked by the state.
This data will be updated regularly, so make sure to check back for the latest numbers.
For any questions, concerns or suggestions on how to improve this page, send an email to HG Editor Theresa Bennett at email@example.com.
