  • Senator Mark Warner Tours Local Virginia Hemp Processing Plant

Virginia Senator Mark Warner met with local Tazewell County officials and business leaders on Oct. 30 to talk hemp and tour the Bluestone building that is processing recently harvested industrial hemp.

The large facility can hold up to 20 acres of hemp plants that could be processed year round.

The company has the capacity to utilize the entire plant to make Cannabidiol (CBD), Cannabigerol (CBG), fiber boards, and other products.

Warner helped sponsor a provision in the 2018 Farm Bill that removed hemp from the national list of controlled substances. And since then, hemp businesses across the country have started up production. Officials say that this hemp business and many others have been a staple of the economic development happening in the county. 

“We’re always happy when anyone’s interested to come visit Tazewell County and come see what we’re doing here. We’ve got a lot of great opportunities in economic development happening, so we’re always pleased to see anyone that takes an interest in that.”
