The National Hemp Association, the nation’s preeminent advocate based in DC, is proud to present this workshop which will provide attendees the opportunity to learn about the current legal and regulatory landscape across the country and how it impacts the CBD, fiber and grain industries. There will also be sessions regarding THC testing considerations; selecting genetics and understanding how to read a Certificate of Analysis (COA). Finally, learn from an expert hemp farmer the best practices for both CBD cultivation and fiber and grain best practices.
