US: Family business brings hemp growing to local community

The hemp industry has seen tremendous growth over the years with plenty of farms and companies opening up, seemingly on a daily basis. It's not every day you can walk through the doors of the area's only hemp processing and manufacturing plants.

Castetter Cannabis Group opened the doors to its new facility in June after a humble beginning in the hemp industry. "I don't know if we thought we'd end up here when we started hand-bottling the wine. This has been a natural progression as we saw a hole in the market," said Kaelan Castetter, CEO of Castetter Cannabis Group.

Kaelan Castetter runs the company, but it's actually his father who first got involved with hemp. He produced the first ever hemp-infused wine back in 1997. After working a few jobs since then, he has now returned to work with his son.

"The opportunity is unfolding right now. We're capitalizing on it, so it's incredibly exciting," said Jim Castetter, Castetter Cannabis Group's chief sales officer.
