Hemp - Game Changers

On Demand Session Link

Please be aware that cannabis and related laws vary. Programming in this track is designed to inform attendees about this fast-changing industry, and does not promote the use or sale of illegal drugs.

The American hemp industry is here, and its potential is extraordinary. Get to know some of the companies who are not just changing the world with hemp, but who have been working behind the scenes to change the laws and educate the masses to ensure this industry’s promise is realized. These are leaders, entrepreneurs, and innovators who are doing more than producing consumer products - they are trailblazers leading policy reform, revolutionizing natural and industrial products, and truly “changing the game”. From their unique lens, the panelists will discuss the future of the industry, its challenges, and how businesses and consumers can have a real impact by disrupting the market, benefiting the environment and shifting how society views this once forbidden resource.
