An integral part of the Company's success is its partnership with The Colorado Hemp Project (CHP). "Wild Bill" Billings co-founded the company with his daughter in order to educate farmers on the value of growing hemp and to then find the right partner for their crop

"GB Sciences told us what they wanted out of the plants, and we worked together to fill in the blanks," remarked Wild Bill. "GB Sciences understands the magic of this plant and it's future.  Real soon, everyone will have hemp supplements and food in their daily diets.  And that's a good thing."

"For GB Sciences, The Colorado Hemp Project provided unique genetics to explore, sourced the land, found the right farmers and the production resources necessary to take the project from seed to sale." Remarked GB Sciences' Chief Science Officer, Andrea Small-Howard.

"The fundamental purpose in creating this outdoor lab was to find a lower cost source for minor cannabinoids to use in our medical formulations.  We focused on hemp as it is an inherently lower cost source for the non-THC cannabinoids due to lower production costs as well as its legal and taxable status.  Clearly, we called it as we are already generating revenue and this is only our first small step into the market," John Poss, Chairman and CEO of GB Sciences explains. "Going forward, we are looking to develop a robust hemp operation as an integral and lucrative part of our core business."
