North Dakota farmers grow CBD hemp for the first time

It may look like marijuana, but industrial hemp with CBD is now legal to grow across the country.

Unlike its cousin with THC, hemp won’t get you high.

Instead, many use CBD for pain management, anxiety, insomnia and more.

For the first time, Clarence Laub III can grow CBD hemp after several years of growing the cheaper grain plant.

“It’s exciting to watch grow, but it’s really a lot of work,” said Laub.

At about a dollar a seed, this hemp has to be treated with the utmost care. That means getting down on your hands and knees, digging a hole, and putting the plant into the ground by hand.

Clarence’s dad says this is no crop for old men.
