How to harvest hemp all year round

Are you interested in growing hemp? Why wouldn't you be?! Hemp is revered the world over for being the only plant with the power to feed, clothe, and heal us. And thanks to the 2018 Farm Bill, which removed hemp from the controlled substances act, it is legally recognized as an agricultural commodity.

Choosing How To Grow
There are three categories of hemp cultivation: indoor flower, outdoor flower (or 'sun-grown' hemp), and greenhouse. Typically, you can expect a hemp crop to be ready for harvest in approximately four months. If you want to cultivate crops more than once a year, you could look at growing hemp indoors, as it allows for year-round harvest. 

Before you get started, there are a couple of important caveats to consider. Typically, hemp is harvested for fiber, food, and extracts that are not suitable for indoor cultivation as the costs will significantly exceed the yield's value. For products made from biomass — flower, stalk, and leaves — it's much more economical to grow hemp on a massive "industrial" scale to reduce overall costs and boost profit margins. 

However, if your grow goal is premium flower for combustible purposes, like vaping or smoking, then indoor hemp cultivation could be for you.
