The Hemp Biz Conference™ Announces the Michigan Hemp Symposium™ in partnership with Cannabiz Connection
March 21st, 2019
The Hemp Biz Conference™ is pleased to announce the Michigan Hemp Symposium in partnership with local Michigan cannabis business education leader Cannabiz Connection. The Michigan Hemp Symposium™ will be held on March 23rd at the Crossroads Conference Center, Grand Rapids, Michigan.
Agenda highlights include: Farm Bill and MDARD update from Thomas Lavigne of Cannabis Counsel, A two hour keynote on growing hemp from a hemp farmer with 3 years cultivation experience in both Colorado and New York and a update on CBD legislation from State Rep Steven Johnson.
The passage of the 2018 Farm Bill allows farmers to cultivate hemp legally across the U.S. for the first time in 81 years. Farm Bill legislation clarifies three important points to jump start this new industry; It defines hemp as a regular agricultural crop, (containing 0.3% or less of THC, the compound responsible for the “high” associated with cannabis), it updates the Controlled Substances Act to effectively legalize products containing cannabidiol (or CBD, which is derived from hemp but does not cause psychotropic effects associated with marijuana); and it allows hemp farmers to obtain federal crop insurance, providing a major safety net that was previously unavailable for hemp commodity crop farmers.
“The hemp industry is faced with great challenges as we build the supply chain. As a result of these challenges, The Hemp Biz Conference has developed the Hemp Symposium Series™ in collaboration with state-level partners to deliver content from state-level regulatory leaders, farmers and manufacturers with multiple years of hemp production experience.” said Christie Lunsford, CEO of The Hemp Biz Conference. “We are proud to have partnered with Cannabiz Connection to deliver in-depth regulatory information and unique perspectives from top hemp business leaders working to develop the next great American industry,”
HEMP MARKET SIZE
According to Grand View Research, “North America is expected to exhibit a CAGR of 16.9% from 2018 to 2025. This growth is attributed to rising demand for hemp products in oil, seedcake, food, beverage, fiber and personal care products.
