International Hemp Exchange to Produce HGH Seed Genetics in Oregon

International Hemp Exchange (IHE) and HGH Seed have announced an agreement where IHE is now the official production partner of HGH Seed in the state of Oregon.

IHE has a state-of-the-art production facility with 1 million square feet of greenhouse production space where the company produces seeds, starts and smokable hemp flower. In addition, IHE is farming up to 400 acres of its own genetics this year.

HGH Seed is the original breeder of many high-quality hemp strains.

IHE will produce Merlot and Red Bordeaux varieties, which are set to be in-market by May 15. These strains are poised to become new standards for the hemp industry in yield, vigor and quality, and represent a limited release of the last HGH feminized hemp seed for the 2019 season.

IHE will also be selling rooted HGH seedlings (seed starts) in 50 cell trays to Oregon growers and surrounding markets in June and July.

Since passage of the Farm Bill in December, Oregon has registered over 25,000 acres of hemp with more acreage coming online every week. This volume of acreage under production will require more than 50 million feminized plants. Nationally there will be hundreds of thousands of acres grown requiring up to 500 million feminized seeds, seed starts or clones.

IHE anticipates selling 30 million seeds and 5 million starts this season. The company has limited inventory available outside of the state of Oregon.
