Tucked away in a university greenhouse, the future of Southern Illinois University Carbondale’s cannabis science initiative is sprouting.
Karen Midden, interim dean of the College of Agricultural Sciences at SIU, along with Karla Gage, assistant professor of plant, soil and agricultural systems, and Aldwin Anterola, associate professor of plant biology, show some of the hemp plants grown in a university greenhouse. The more than 500 industrial hemp plants are aimed at producing CBD oil and are destined for the fields of a local start-up company. The plants are part of SIU’s cannabis science initiative, which seeks to train scientists, growers, marketers and farmers for the emerging opportunities associated with the plant.
