A spokesman for Inno-Tech Alberta says he feels there are going to be MAJOR commercial hemp facilities in Alberta–in just a year or two.
Jan Slaski told Postmedia that hemp is a multi-purpose crop—where every part can be used—and everyone involved can make money.
There’s a research centre in place near Vegreville to study industrial hemp:
“Here in Vegreville, for the last 16 years–we’ve been conducting hemp research. We’re the premiere hemp research organization and program in North America. We started working with hemp as a crop that offers diversification options for Prairie growers.”
He says his team has been developing a wide variety of products—-which he says COULD lead to very big benefits for the province–possibly around 1-billion dollars a year.
