The Texas Department of Agriculture Commissioner, Sid Miller, has appointed Bayou City Hemp Company Co-Founder Jeromy Sherman to serve on the Commissioners Industrial Hemp Advisory Council. "It is an honor to be on the council and act as an advocate for Texas farmers.

Using supercritical CO2 extraction, Bayou City Hemp Company will process hemp for CBD isolates & distillates to be used in a wide variety of products across several industries. "Being in Houston was very important to the team and this business is a natural fit to the exciting and thriving culture that Houston offers," Ben Meggs, Co-Founder of Bayou City Hemp said.
