HEMPEN INTERVIEW:

In July 2019 HCM visited a beautiful part of the Oxfordshire countryside to interview some of the worker cooperative that is Hempen. Unfortunately, the circumstances of our visit were to report on a disappointing day for hemp here in the UK.

Oxfordshire based hemp farmers Hempen, have recently had their home office license revoked for growing hemp on their farm based on a complicated application process, a lack of guidance and understanding, and sparse and limited communication from the home office.

After finally having their license revoked, and receiving legal advice, Hempen made the decision to destroy all of their hemp crop for this season to avoid prosecution. A sad story for the UK’s hemp farming scene and one that will not go unnoticed amongst supporters of hemp in this country. Hempen have estimated the destroyed crop’s value would be approximately £200,000 and that is without them even selling the most lucrative part of the plant (unlike similar farms are permitted to do in countries such as switzerland).

The Hemp & CBD Media team were on hand to catch up with Patrick, and Ali from Hempen and find out more about how this will effect them going forwards, the financial implications, and how it will impact them as a working community.

We wish them all the best in their efforts to contest this issue in the future.
