Given the recent onslaught of hemp legislation passed throughout states like Virginia, New York, North Carolina, Oregon, and Hawaii, many are wondering: Just how many states will it take to overturn the long-awaited federal ban on growing industrial hemp and remove it from the controlled substances list?

Hemp is non-psychoactive cannabis, legal to grow in most every industrialized country, and the United States is the largest importer of raw-hemp and finished-hemp goods on planet Earth. Over half the country has passed legislation at the state level to legalize and grow hemp and more are proposing to amend laws regarding hemp today.

Our farmers, communities, and citizens are still being denied access to the most beneficial, multifunctional, nutritional, industrial, environmental, agricultural crop in human history.

During the LET’S TALK HEMP segment at the NoCo Hemp Expo, you’ll hear from field workers, international experts and U.S. representatives on numerous hot-button topics.

The “TED-Talk”- style event showcases an incredible lineup of knowledgeable panelists and speakers specializing in varying subjects of the industry who are eager to share their insight and experience for this remarkable and historic plant.

With over 70 participants presenting on the pivotal issue of hemp, Let’s Talk Hemp features conversations on policy, products, science and genetics, seed breeding and acquisition, new technologies and innovation, and challenges surrounding the industry today.

Keynote addresses include Founding Father Ben Franklin, author and industry expert Doug Fine, and United States House of Representatives Colorado congressman Jared Polis. Additional featured speakers include Alan Dronkers from HempFlax UK, Adam Dunn from HoodLamb, Anndrea Hermann from Hemp Technologies, Richard Rose the HempNut, Eric Steenstra from the Hemp Industries Association, Shaun Crew from Hemp Oil Canada, and Ed Lehrburger from PureHemp Technology.
