Trends in the Emerging Industrial Hemp Market

Just over two years after hemp was federally legalized, what has the industry learned and what does the future hold for the hemp economy? Hear from hemp industry leaders who will share the lessons they have learned in the first few years of this emerging industrial hemp market. Featuring leaders from the legal, business, and advocacy communities, this panel will explore such topics as: what hemp products are legal or not legal, how are companies courting investment and finding opportunities for growth amid regulator uncertainty, and what does the future of the hemp economy look like?
