The $600 million-plus hemp industry is poised for massive growth across the U.S. as more states legalize cultivation of the plant, promising to create scores of new business opportunities and jobs in the coming years. The market for hemp-based CBD products in particular is booming, which has helped bring established medical marijuana companies into the fold.
This day-long session will provide insight on where the hemp and hemp-based CBD industries stand today, where they are going, what types of business opportunities will emerge and how to tap into this growth. You’ll get an overview of the current legal and regulatory landscape, hear about the latest on the research and science front and learn about investment possibilities.
Experts in the business, legal and regulatory sides of these industries will lead the sessions. You’ll have a chance to network with both speakers and other attendees as well.
This course is for those currently in the hemp and CBD industries, professionals in the marijuana sector and entrepreneurs and investors looking to get involved in hemp.
