2019 Farm Bill Update

Betting on Hemp & CBD in 2019 and Beyond

In a 386-47 vote, the House of Representatives approved a bill on Dec 12, 2018, which allocates billions of dollars in subsidies to American farmers, legalizes hemp, and bolsters farmers markets. President Trump signed the bill into law soon after. The industry is absolutely buzzing with emerging and established brands trying to wrangle the market and avoid the risk associated with this quickly evolving landscapes. Join us for an engaging conversation with a diverse panel of experts in the space.

We'll explore:

· Pre/Post Farm Bill Update - What’s changed now that the bill has passed?
· Understanding the latest FDA statement – implications for Food and Supplement categories
· Consumer demands - transparency, safety, and health & wellness benefits
· Regulatory overview – state to state and country to country for food and supplements.
· Hemp – cultivated vs industrial vs marijuana and what this means for product development

Featuring:

Allen Hopper, Senior Counsel, Cannabis Practice Group at Leland, Parachini Steinberg, Matzger & Melnick, LLP
Martin Lee, Co-Founder & Director of Project CBD
Rhiannon Woo, Co-Founder of TraceTrust
Gabriel Youtsey, Chief Innovation Officer at University of California, Agriculture and Natural Resources
