Hemp, cannabis' "sober botanical cousin," is one of the most powerful, versatile and misunderstood plants on the planet. As CBD products enter the mainstream market, it is time to decouple hemp from cannabis and appreciate the non-psychoactive hemp plant for what it is: an essential nutrient here to help. This panel will discuss the past, present and future of hemp and its role as a food, fiber and medicine. We will share the relationship between the plant and our body’s Endocannabinoid System, the scientific research leading the way, and the steps to integrating hemp-based products into your wellness routine.
