Shadi Ramey will be speaking on a Hemp Panel, "A Place for Hemp," at this International Conference.
All this talk about Cannabis, but what about hemp? Although Jack Herer authored a masterful text on all of the potential applications of hemp plants, thirty-three years have passed, and everyday uses of hemp still have not become pervasive. This panel of passionate hemp cultivators and scientists will discuss the industrial, medical, and food-grade uses of hemp, including, but not limited to hemp seed and hemp oil, CBD-based concentrates, consumer goods such as toiletries and clothing, as well as potential hemp uses in biofuels and bio-based materials. A general differentiation between hemp and cannabis will be provided, as well as the current status of laws regarding hemp cultivation in states with or without cannabis legalization.
