Nation's first hemp summit at SupplySide West

Half-day summit will cover topics such as biochemistry of cannabinoids, medical application for cannabidiol, and the compelling value of CBD.

SupplySide West, the world’s largest expo gathering ingredient suppliers and finished product manufacturers, announced the addition of the Agricultural Hemp Summit: CBD and the Hemp Revolution, during their annual trade show, Oct. 6 to 10 at Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas, Nev. This makes SupplySide West the first trade show in the United States to feature education focused on the development of cannabis-based products. 
The summit is sponsored by CannaVest, and will be held from 8:30 to 11:30 a.m. on Oct. 10. This half-day summit will be dedicated to the following topics: A New Age For Hemp, The Biochemistry of Cannabinoids, Medical Application for Cannabidiol and the Compelling Value of CBD.

Advances in the status of hemp and its derivatives open up a broad range of business possibilities for non-psychoactive ingredients, particularly CBD, with its multiple mechanisms of action to support human and animal health. 
“Changes on a global basis—and particularly in the United States—around the agricultural production of hemp are opening up great opportunities for producers of unique bioactives and finished products. This in-depth summit will be one of the first in this industry to explore the agricultural and regulatory considerations; the biochemistry, science and medical applications for cannabinoids, particularly CBD, and the potential ahead in this burgeoning market,” said Heather Granato, vice president of content, Health & Nutrition Network for Virgo.
