Will be interesting to see if this goes anywhere and there evolves a market for harvesting the roots. Would be another potential revenue stream for growers, along with trim.

From root to bud this plant is medicine! Many people thoroughly dry and then grind the roots up into a fine powder. You can then infuse it into coconut oil in a crock pot on warm for several hours. Add some Beeswax and essential oil for scent!
