NASHVILLE, TN (July 26, 2022) – In its return to Music City, USA, SHE4 begins with a welcome reception on August 18, followed by two full days of interaction with industry leaders and agronomic researchers, an Experience Hemp exhibition hall and the Nashville Hemp Food & Beverage Fair & Music Festival on Saturday, August 20, featuring local music and hemp-based foods and beverages.

“Four years after industrial hemp was legalized in the 2018 Farm Bill, we are seeing our industry expand from a focus on wellness and cannabinoids to the multiple industrial uses of hemp including textiles, building materials, bioplastics, paper and packaging, biofuel and superfoods,” said Morris Beegle, Southern Hemp Expo organizer and president and founder of We Are for Better Alternatives (WAFBA). “New this year, SHE features a special focus on smokable hemp flower companies and a chance for the public to explore hemp superfoods and beverages while listening to Nashville’s famous music,” he added.
