He’s put his money where his mouth is by founding IND HEMP, a Montana-based hemp fiber and oil seed company that is working with western farmers to develop the domestic hemp processing infrastructure and build out the supply chain.

Elliott believes in the carbon sequestering potential of industrial hemp but knows that nothing is possible without our American farmers.

In this in-depth podcast interview he talks about his work with oil companies to clean up Superfund sites, which led him to hemp as a tool for soil remediation and ultimately to starting IND HEMP.

This conversation covers farming, science, politics, regenerative ag, morality, religion, and how maybe Al Gore was the wrong person to be the messenger on climate.
