My blog is dedicated to the exploration of industrial hemp in America including the rich history of all forms of cannabis, the evolving law and politics of hemp and marijuana, the many products made from cannabis and the capacity, real or imagined, of hemp to re-industrialize rural America and revitalize the American family farm.
Leading cannabis advocate Dr. Sanjeev Sharma will talk about “Doctor’s Perspective: Cannabis vs. Hemp” during the PDX HempFest Expo June 10 in Portland. Dr. Sharma is the founder of Seyvah, which provides treatment with organic CBD products and essential oils. The group has documented and educated more than 30,000 patients who use cannabis medical products in Oregon and California over the past six years.
Author and cannabis advocate Ed Rosenthal is a featured speaker at the event. Other speakers for the one-day PDX HempFest will cover a wide range of topics, including hemp construction, cosmetics, medicine, food, organic cultivation, and various legal and business aspects of the industry. Also on the program are an investors’ pitch deck forum and an Oregon State Advisory Rules Committee Q&A.
