Business partners involved with an Oregon hemp farm are taking a former partner to court over allegations he stole from the farm to make and sell CBD oil worth more than $500,000.
The company claims Schook either made CBD oil from hemp produced on its farm – a crop he said wasn’t marketable because it didn’t germinate well and failed to produce flower – or that he used money from Bakers Ranch Botanicals to produce hemp at a farm he owned with his daughter.
Bakers Ranch Botanicals did not respond immediately to Hemp Industry Daily’s request for comment.
The Oregon Department of Agriculture has Schook listed as a contact for two other farms in Deschutes County, which are registered to Four Seasons.
