PALISADE, Colo.- Jaime Cox of Palisade owns not one, but two businesses tied to the hemp industry.
The first is Colorado Biodynamic, a CBD and hemp production company she started about 5 years ago.
She has doubled the size of her hemp farm every year since she began growing.
The second is Pressed, a coffee shop just down the road from Cox’s hemp farm which sells coffee, cocktails, and her CBD products.
Customers can even add CBD to their beverages for a slight up-charge.
Cox’s hemp farm and CBD line are part of a booming industry in Colorado, particularly on the Western Slope.
Las year the 2018 Farm Bill was signed into law, which re-classified industrial hemp as a regular agricultural good, opening the doors for more opportunity in this relatively new industry.
