SupplySide Stories Episode 16: FSOil, a farmers story about hemp oil from seed to sale – podcast
Ken Iverson, a farmer, draws upon multi-generational farming knowledge to growing industrial hemp for consumer products. He has been responsible for creating industry leading standards for cultivation and extraction. Learn more from the FSOil co-founder.

Ken Iverson is the founder of FSOil, but he's not your typical supplier.  First and foremost Ken is a farmer. After supporting his dad with CDB to manage pain in life-transition, Ken knew that he needed to get more involved in producing quality hemp extracts. He turned his multi-generational farming knowledge to growing industrial hemp for consumer products. Whether it's plant spacing, disease concerns, plant nutrition, harvesting, drying or oil production, Ken is involved with it all, and today he is widely responsible for creating industry leading standards for cultivation and extraction.
In keeping with leading and setting the highest standards in the  U.S. hemp industry, FSOil carries multiple certifications: current Good Manufacturing Practices (cGMP) certified, USDA certified Organic, Kosher and Hemp Authority certified, and they were the first hemp farm to receive global Gap certification.

Learn more from the FSOil co-founder, where he believes the state of the industry may be heading, and how this vertical supplier supports quality seed through sale.
