Barclay Damon Live: The Cannabis Counselor, With Aleece Burgio—"New York Hemp Operations, Featuring Paal Elfstrum"

This week, Aleece sits down with Paal Elfstrum, owner and CEO of Wheatfield Gardens, a current hemp operation in New York State with a large production facility that’s looking to transfer into the adult-use space. Aleece and Paal discuss hemp infrastructure and the logistics associated with transferring from hemp cultivation to cultivating adult-use cannabis. Tune in to hear how Paal and Wheatfield Gardens got started in the hemp space, the challenges associated with the disconnect between state and federal cannabis regulations, and what it takes to run a hemp operation in terms of sustainability and energy efficiency. Aleece and Paal also touch on the lack of preferential treatment for existing hemp operators in New York State’s cannabis legislation and how Paal intends to bring social equity principles to Wheatfield Gardens to become a social equity incubator for entrepreneurs interested in cultivating adult-use cannabis. Let’s get into it!
