Cutting-edge research, creative applications, and state-of-the-art production all come together March 31 and April 1 at the largest hemp-centric event in the country
Loveland, CO – This Friday and Saturday NoCo Hemp Expo, the largest hemp-centric event in the U.S., brings together speakers, exhibitors, and an audience from around the globe to learn about the latest research, production advances and applications in the industrial hemp industry. The event, with B2B industry focus Friday, March 31 and consumer focus on Saturday, April 1, is at The Ranch Events Complex, off I-25 in Loveland, Colorado.
"There’s no place on the planet for those interested in the hemp industry where they can go to learn more and to get connected,” said NoCo Hemp Expo Founder Morris Beegle. “From policy makers and legislators, to big cultivators and processors, to the most creative product manufacturers, to the leaders in research, you’ll find them under one roof in Loveland this week.”
Just last week, Beegle noted, sponsor and presenter Botanical Genetics, announced new industrial hemp plants with zero tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), the principal psychoactive constituent in cannabis. “Heavy-handed federal regulations have focused undue attention – some say paranoia – on trace amounts of THC in hemp,” said Beegle. “This important breakthrough is the latest step in taking away this misguided concern and relieving the handicap that has prevented the U.S. hemp industry from reaching its full potential as an economic engine, job creator, and global leader.”
Choose from a variety of demonstrations, presentations and panels, including keynotes by John Roulac, founder and CEO of hemp superfood producer Nutiva; Shaun Crew, founder and president of Hemp Oil Canada; hemp farmer, author, and evangelist Doug Fine; Jason Freeman, organic and fair supply chain specialist; Bob Hoban, managing partner of the Hoban Law Group; and former CIA Director James Woolsey, keynote speaker of the sold out Hemp Summit taking place on Friday.
Products and services on display made from or incorporating hemp include clothing and apparel; foods; body care; botanical extracts; nutraceuticals; bio-plastics; building materials; paper, and more.
Hemp machinery, processing, and service providers attending include those involved with decortication; extraction; planting and harvesting; seed dehulling and oil pressing; irrigation; soil nutrient management; lab testing; genetics; seeds; legal services; distribution; greenhouses; farm consulting; and nano technologies.
