The Florida Hemp Initiative is an ongoing collaboration of individuals and organizations interested in bringing the full-value of hemp to our state. We represent the hemp plant at public events, educate agri-businesses and are citizen lobbyists at all levels of government.
The Florida Hemp Initiative (FLHEMP.org) envisions a healthier more prosperous time when hemp products are created and manufactured in our state. To this end, we provide accurate information to individuals, organizations and businesses interested in using, selling or cultivating hemp.
We are building a better Florida together one step at a time. When you donate to the FL Hemp Initiative you are ensuring we can have cleaner water, healthier food choices, environmentally friendly homes and jobs we can't send overseas.
Several states have growing hemp economies while Florida agricultural footprint is shrinking. When you get involved together we can turn the tide. Our farmers deserve a cash crop and consumers shouldn't be paying prohibition prices for hemp products.
Hemp is a stronger more durable fiber than cotton and requires less pesticides to grow.
Hemp leaches our toxins and heavy metals during the growing cycle leaving fields safer for planting.
