This full day of education, support and networking will be located just 13 miles from Hemp, Inc.’s sophisticated Local Processing Center in Medford, Oregon, which focuses on hemp flower harvesting, drying, curing, chucking, trimming, storing and post-processing for cannabidiol (CBD).
The day’s event will consist of eight, enriching seminars with two blocks of time that allow for networking with speakers and other industry personnel. The first block will start at 9:00 a.m., ending the day with a networking session from 4:00 to 5:00 p.m.
In 2018, there were $3.7 billion in sales within the global hemp industry. Since the legalization of hemp in Oregon in 2015, the number of licensed growers in the state has climbed to 584, according to The Oregonian. Hemp University’s previous seminars in North Carolina have supported hundreds of farmers seeking to incorporate hemp into their crop rotation. The Hemp University supports Hemp, Inc.’s mission of empowering farmers nationwide to have access to a viable crop and its back-to-land movement.
“We are so excited to bring our expertise and resources to the state of Oregon,” said Hemp, Inc. CEO Bruce Perlowin. “Hemp University receives such a large turnout at its educational seminars in North Carolina that we decided to introduce them in our other operating markets. Hemp University provides farmers who are either interested in joining the hemp revolution or are already part of it, the ability to learn more about creating a profitable stream of income through educating them on maximizing crop revenue per acre.”
The seminars provide a unique opportunity for interested parties to learn more about the hemp industry from experts in the field. A sample of presenters at Hemp University, Ashland include: Bruce Perlowin, CEO of Hemp, Inc. “Hemp and the Renaissance of the Small Family Farm” Whitney Murdoch “Planting in Alliance with Nature” Farmer Tom Lauerman “Cooperative Farming – No Need to Reinvent the Wheel” Michael Monarch “Cultivating Profit with Hemp” Greg Flavall “Hempcrete – the Green Alternative Building Material”
