Mother-daughter team grow legal hemp for healing
CASPER, Wyo. (Wyoming News Now) - Strong Wyoming Wind blows through an acre and a half of hemp plants. A Mountain Horizon Hemp co-owner said they are growing flowers to make CBD products.
“There are so many other terpenes that are used for either relaxation or pain,” said Deidra Homann, a co-owner of Mountain Horizon Hemp.
She started this field with her daughter, Nicole Kleemeyer. They have endured this together through the good and times, like a surprise storm in September.
“You couldn’t tell there were any six-foot-tall plants there the next day,” Homann said.
However, most of the plants lived to tell the tale.
"The snow melted and the plants were completely flat to the ground. They pop up and continue to grow. They are heartily little plants, said Kleemeyer.
They are currently working on harvesting all of the flowers. Homann adds the process starts with dry hemp plants.
“We buck that material into special bags that go into the processor and the process extracts the CBD and takes it down to the level of refinement,” Homann said.
They are excited to see their products in stores across the state and create something their late father and husband felt called to start.
