It was a wet year and hemp took over what is an ok clover plot in progress. I live several hours from the property so don’t get out there often during the summer. I am open to ideas.

CBD oil, perhaps?

Spray with Roundup, then burn it off in a couple of weeks............Be sure and bring plenty of snacks ;-)

Back in the late 70s, my dad had a 20’ x 40’ building moved from a neighbor’s property to our farm a 1/4 mile away. While we were cleaning it up in preparation for the move, we discovered about 15-20 old screen doors up in the loft area, elevated and covered with good old Iowa “ditchweed” drying. We piled it all up and burned it. A reformed stoner who worked for my dad said about the the only thing that the ditchweed would give you was a good headache!

call the drug interdiction task force they will swoop in there take a few photo ops and commence getting rid of it they will feel they did outstanding job, and you will have a cleaned area win-win.

Don't know if they really would but they did for a time when the war on drugs was doing aerial searches for growers and they discovered these huge 20-40 acre patches of hemp in swampy areas of Wi. they was just besides themselves on discovering these huge grow operations. how many days they sat monitoring the area and nobody never did show up. they eventually were updated by some old-timers that said it was left over from the turn of century hemp growing for rope making and other uses. and it in the hemp family of plants but not much for the drug trade. the areas were to wet to commercially grow anything else so it was just left all those years.

advertise at your next local riot/looting session. it may even stop a riot. the only looting would be your food plot ;)

For those who don't know, marijuana and hemp are of the same species, but hemp is defined as having less than 0.3% THC in it. So, hemp will not get you high.

Hemp has historically been commercially grown and used for an assortment of products including rope, canvass sails and wagon coverings, paper and clothes. Our Constitution was written on hemp paper. It also has a lot of environmental benefits. It can absorb toxic metals and chemicals better than any other plant. Scientist planted it at Chernobyl to help clean up that mess.

It's also very good for soils. The leaves and stems are loaded with nutrients, so it can be tilled back into the ground to rejuvenate the soil. If this were my field, I'd mow it down and disc it back into the ground. Next year's food plot should be outstanding.

It is mowed, thinking mowing more frequently maybe my best bet.

Deer love hemp. It's full of nutrients. Maybe even better than clover.

Had I pile of it on my parents farm 20+ years ago. Frequent mowing has reduced it to a few scattard plants now.

The deer hadn’t touched it. There were no beds in it. Within hours of mowing there were deer back in the field.

I remember quail hunting near Manhattan a Kansas when I was in college. Some of the places I hunted were loaded with hemp plants. I was told it was grown foe rope production many years ago for nearby Ft Riley. As far as killing it, I agree with one of the above posts, round up, and burn it several weeks later.

Might be low in THC, but bet if ya smoked enough of it, you'd be high...8^)

Not likely. At best , it may give you a headache. A field of hemp like the OP's probably would even bud out into anything that was smokable. It would bloom into seeds. You don't smoke the seeds, leaves or stems.

Well you live in Colorado, that should be an easy solution..plenty of dispensaries in downtown Denver. You could 'give it away'..... lol!

Funny story, first time in Kansas came acrossed a small field of what I assumed was someone's pot plants. Looked good, smelled skunky so I took a bud. Dried and smoked it, the above post is right, got a good headache is all. Than I googled it and found it is all over Kansas and Iowa. Shawn

Use to spot the real stuff from the air. It stands out when you get the right angle on it. It has a unique color compared to the surrounding vegetation.

If the CBD oil by https://berkshirecbd.com/ works for you I wanted you to know how you could easily make your own that is much stronger.

I got rid of a few pounds of hemp in the 60's and early 70's. Seems like it went up in smoke.
