Mor-Cannabis is a hemp farm owned by Deborah Morton, Angela Gaither, Cheryl Morton, Tamara Morton, Jamie Morton, Stephon Morton, and Derrick Morton. In 2020 Mor-Cannabis will be growing for Grain. The hemp land will also house a greenhouse for research and development in genetics while creating a self-sustaining greenhouse environment.
With the recent passage of hemp into federal law, both the hemp fiber and CBD oil market has shown growth in the last two years. We believe more consumers will seek high-quality hemp biomass and that more businesses will be demanding these raw ingredients. Mor-Cannabis Farm will provide excellent high quality, compliant hemp material, biomass, flower, and hempseed oil to consumers and businesses alike thanks to the quality genetics and care put into growing industrial hemp in the State of Virginia Agriculture Department.
As our business continues to evolve and our direct marketing plans mature, one of our long-term goals is to become certified organic. We want to be known as Virginia's leading hemp quality for farming hemp and Virginia’s leading hemp farm.
Everything old is new again. Hemp once tied the world together, and after hundreds of years of shifting regulations, the plant is starting to circle the planet once again. Four hundred years ago, the British needed tons of hemp to maintain their global empire powered by shipping dominance. But the Industrial Revolution brought steamships and electric motors, gutting the global market for hemp.
The 20th century saw the weakened industry all but disappeared as governments around the world banned production – all because one variant of the plant, marijuana, produces the intoxicating chemical THC. Now, hemp is undergoing a revival. The same governments that banned hemp production because of its conflation with marijuana are reopening business opportunities, and private entrepreneurs are investing huge sums in developing the hemp market.
