The Booming Hemp Industry: One Western Slope Entrepreneur’s Story

Local News

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.
