The Cannabis Disruption: Bringing Hemp Back

Presented by Josh Hendrix MONTROSE: Tuesday, January 30 • 6:00pm - 7:30pm Sign up for free at Customer Service or fill the form out below. There’s been much debate suggesting that CBD derived from agricultural hemp has the same properties as  cannabis-derived CBD, making it a potential alternative for patients who can’t legally access medical marijuana but can legally acquire hemp-derived CBD products. A lot of people aren’t entirely familiar with hemp-derived CBD, however. What exactly is there to know? Join us for this informative lecture, where you will: - Find out how CBD was discovered, its natural sources, including the differences between psychoactive THC and non-psychoactive CBD - Discover the interactions of CBD and the human endocannabinoid system as it relates to human health - Learn why hemp is the most eco-friendly way to balance the endocannabinoid system - Determine if agricultural hemp-derived CBD is the best option for you Born and raised in the Bluegrass State and a University of Kentucky alumnus, Mr. Hendrix relocated back to Central Kentucky in 2014 on a mission to help rebuild the US hemp industry. Seeing a need to bring farmers, processors, manufacturers and supporters of the industry together, Mr. Hendrix founded the Kentucky Hemp Industries Association that summer and still serves on the Board of Directors. He also became an active member of the US Hemp Roundtable where he now serves as Treasurer on the Board of Directors. In 2015 he created and became President of Hendrix Hemp, a licensed hemp producer that manages hemp cultivation on his family’s, Mayflower Farm, in Mount Sterling, KY. In early 2016 Mr. Hendrix was appointed to the Technical Advisory Council for the National Hemp Association and in 2017 accepted a role on the Board of Directors for Friends of Hemp. He is also the host of the Hemp Happy Hour, a live radio show and podcast about the emerging hemp industry. Currently Mr. Hendrix serves as the Director of Business Development – Domestic Production for CV Sciences, Inc. where he works with numerous universities, farmers, businesses, and organizations to help facilitate the infrastructure necessary to establish a modern domestic supply chain for hemp in the United States.
