The Minnesota Department of Agriculture awarded $241,009 to nine farmers and researchers in Minnesota. The Anishinaabe Agriculture Institute, an organization in Becker County, received $25,000 of that for its work with hemp.
While hemp and marijuana leaves may look similar and both come from the cannabis species, the two are very different.
Hemp contains a compound called cannabidiol (CBD) and has less than .3% THC — the substance that makes marijuana psychoactive —so it doesn't provide a "high."
