Newsletter – March 12, 2020

As the U.S. and the world respond to the global coronavirus outbreak, a number of natural products, hemp and cannabis-related industry events have been cancelled, rescheduled or postponed, including Natural Products Expo West in early March, Austin’s South By Southwest in mid-March, the American Herbal Products Association’s Hemp-CDB Congress in April, the International Cannabis Conference in Berlin, CannaTech in Israel, and others.

In a proactive move, organizers for the 7th Annual NoCo Hemp Expo – the world’s largest gathering of hemp industry professionals – announced they are rescheduling this year’s three-day Investor Forum, Business Conference, Farm Symposium, and robust Exposition Hall out of concern for the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak.

Pre-Order Your Copy of Doug Fine’s New Book, American Hemp Farmer in Time for NoCo Hemp Expo!

American Hemp Farmer, the sixth book from author Doug Fine, follows the rigors and pleasures of an entire hemp season from soil preparation and genetics acquisition through harvest and regenerative marketing. It’s immersive. It’s wildly funny. The follow up to Doug Fine’s bestselling Hemp Bound, American Hemp Farmer pulls no punches, and because it is written by an actual hemp farmer and entrepreneur, it tells you what you need to know if you want to join the hemp renaissance.

“As a hempcrete homeowner, American Hemp Farmer is the must-read book on hemp I’m proud to keep on my shelf. Someday we may even see NBA arenas built from hemp. But for now, Doug should be prepared to lose more money at the poker table that sits on the hemp floor in my hemp-paneled card room.” – Don Nelson, NBA Hall of Fame Inductee

Pre-order American Hemp Farmer now. Use code EXPO and you can also pick up your copy, signed by Doug Fine, at the upcoming NoCo Hemp Expo, March 26-28, 2020, in Denver.
