As Texas Hemp Farmers Prepare For Their First-Ever Harvest, Cannabis Regulation Remains Complicated

In Bergheim, Texas, just north of San Antonio, there’s a skunky smell in the air.

“You know, that’s a really good description. Skunky is a very typical terpene that is in most of these plants,” Austin Ruple said.

He’s the president and co-owner of Pur IsoLabs – a hemp and cannabidiol, or CBD company that grows hemp and manufactures retail CBD products.
