The 2018 Farm Bill has given new life to an age-old commodity—Hemp. The first-ever Hemp Industry Daily Conference will debut at MJBizConNEXT, June 12-14, 2019 in New Orleans.
This expansion into hemp is a sign of the growing market for industrial hemp and consumer products along with increasing demand for reliable, focused business-to-business resources that MJBizDaily and its family of conferences and trade shows are known for.
From Hemp Industry Daily and the producers of MJBizCon, this deep dive into the business opportunities, the growing consumer demand for hemp and CBD, as well as must-know updates on regulations and legal developments is a one-stop source for key market information in this revitalized market.
