    Than you for your interest in Naturally Advanced Technologies.

    Although hemp was our number one priority the past several years, we are now working primarily with flax as we have had great success with spinning. That’s not to say that we won’t be working with hemp as we are very aware of it’s great potential.

    Our facilities are currently located in South Carolina which is where we are growing flax. I am unsure of why there are so many regulations on growing hemp commericially in Alberta. I was under the impression that it was a relatively easy process.
