ASU Industrial Hemp Harvest.
Cannabis Science is in partnership with American States University (ASU), Free Spirit Organics Native American Corporation, HRM Farms, AECG and Raymond C. Dabney University (RCDU) to conduct a Native American Economic Development Plan; 2017, 250-ACRE Native American CBIS & FSO NAC Project. Through this agricultural based initiative, a robust University infrastructure will be created focused on education, job creation, and drug development of the hemp plant.
The landed allotted for this plan is a total of 250 acres which allows for harvesting of the industrial hemp plant and development of University and site services including laboratory facilities. ASU will be conducting research and development on the industrial hemp with objectives including a pharmaceutical development program for medicines targeting critical ailments, wholesale distribution to physicians and licensed wholesale manufacturers coupled with extraction research and development for green energy/fuel, construction materials, clothing fabric, paper manufacturing, food products, and vehicle production parts.
This type of initiative provides CBIS with a platform for collaborations and growth. In addition to the agriculture, extraction, and property development operations, CBIS is able to couple formal education programs with real-world, commercial research activities that provide a positive impact in the communities where CBIS operates.
