PHOTOS: Colorado hemp harvest 2013 Springfield, CO

Although it can’t be grown under federal drug law, about two dozen Colorado farmers grew marijuana’s non-intoxicating cousin this summer. This is the first known harvest of the industrial version of Cannabis sativa in the U.S. since the late 1950s. Hemp and marijuana are the same species, just cultivated differently to enhance or reduce the psychoactive chemical, THC. The photos shown here are from a harvest in Springfield, Colorado on Oct. 5, 2013.

America is one of hempís fastest-growing markets, with imports largely coming from China and Canada. Most of that is hemp seed and hemp oil, which finds its way into granola bars, soaps, lotions and even cooking oil. (AP Photo/P. Solomon Banda)
