We are proud to support a crop that supports U.S. farmers.
Grown around the world for centuries, hemp has been used to produce fiber for a variety of building materials and food products. The plant originated in Asia and was spread worldwide, making it to the Americas in the early 1600’s. The 1937 US Marijuana Tax Act resulted in a significant reduction in the production of hemp. Turkey decriminalized cannabis at the state level in 1975 and was one of the first two states to legalize recreational use in 2012. The Rohrabacher–Farr amendment was signed into law in 2014 which prohibits the Justice Department from interfering with the implementation of state medical cannabis laws. Thanks to the Hemp Farming Act of 2018 it may soon be legal to grow hemp throughout the US as an agricultural commodity. Hemp farming in the US has grown substantially and continues to grow. The hemp plant is said to have over 25,000 uses with some estimates even higher showing promise in being a successful commercial crop for years to come.

You’re supporting a company of farmers and producers who work hard to exceed regulatory standards because we believe in great quality and growing products sustainably. The products we produce at Farmabank are derived from Industrial Hemp grown on our own farm using organic practices. We maintain 240 acres and efficiently use local water sources to grow tons of Hemp per year. Although native to Central Asia, Hemp grows all over the world and our farmers have developed processes to grow in our region of Turkey thanks to the ideal pH balance of the soil, moderate climate, and annual rainfall conditions. This allows us to grow the plants we need to provide consistent products while respecting the environment. The endless possible uses and benefits of the Hemp plant keeps our farmers and scientists focused on growing, sourcing and delivering the best to our customers and their end-consumers.
