The first Bachelor of Science in Agribusiness: Horticulture and Cannabis degree is now offered at SEMO after many student requests and thanks to Professor of Agriculture, Horticulture, and Cannabis Sven Svenson’s dedication to research.
Hemp is a major crop in the United States, and the industry is growing at an exponential rate. Svenson brought the opportunity to the students at SEMO to explore the benefits of this plant.
Hemp is a type of cannabis plant with less than 0.3% THC-content – the psychoactive component of marijuana – and is used for fiber, food, fuel, and medical purposes. Cannabis is a tall, leafy plant that has serrated leaves and glandular hairs.
