Bayou City Hemp Company Eyes Headquarters in Houston, Texas
Located in the I-10 corridor on the west side of Houston, Bayou City Hemp officials said the facility will serve as a location where the company can easily receive shipments from farmers all over Texas and process hemp for sale and distribution. The facility is expected to be online in summer of 2020.
The company said it applied for the applicable licenses through the Texas Department of Agriculture. Texas Department of Agriculture Commissioner, Sid Miller, appointed Bayou City Hemp Company Co-Founder Jeromy Sherman to serve on the Commissioners Industrial Hemp Advisory Council.
"It is an honor to be on the council and act as an advocate for Texas farmers. Agribusiness is as important to Texas's present and future as it has been to its past, and we believe that the growing hemp industry in our state is spurring job creation at every step of the process from seed to shelf," stated Sherman.
Using supercritical CO2 extraction, Bayou City Hemp Company will process hemp for CBD isolates & distillates to be used in a wide variety of products across several industries. "Being in Houston was very important to the team and this business is a natural fit to the exciting and thriving culture that Houston offers," Ben Meggs, Co-Founder of Bayou City Hemp said.
"In an industry in its infancy and ever-changing regulations, we felt it was very important to be able to provide the highest quality CBD and other cannabinoid extracts, while working with Texas farmers and business owners all over the state," he added.
