Hemp could help save the bees, providing an excellent source of nutrition during the season they need it most, new study finds
Expanding hemp cultivation in the United States could provide food for the bees during a time of year when few other options are available to them, a new study concludes.
Researchers from Colorado State University set up bee traps in industrial hemp fields during peak flowering season to determine whether hemp was “a valuable source of pollen for foraging bees.”
Turns out it is.
The researchers collected almost 2,000 bees from 23 different bee genera.
Nearly half of those were classic honeybees, but specialized genera such as Melissodes bimaculata and Peponapis pruinosa turned up in surprisingly “high proportions.”
Hemp flowers are apparently “prolific pollen producers,” making them attractive to a diverse abundance bees.

Hemp Bound: Dispatches from the Front Lines of the Next Agricultural Revolution
HempX Asheville publicist Jill Lieberman ticks off reasons why organizers of the upcoming event — two days focused on farming, cultivation, processing, uses and legal status of industrial hemp — are eager to have chef and Plant restaurant co-owner Jason Sellers return for this year’s gathering. “He’s an accomplished chef,” says Lieberman. “He is supercreative and loves to experiment.”

Among items planned for the menu are hemp cheese ravioli, a vegan cheesecake with hemp crust and a dreamsicle — a creamy ice pop with a hemp twist. Throughout the meal, Sellers will offer guests insight on the benefits of cooki [...]
