Last Event

We started back on March 18th, 2017 with the first ever North Carolina Industrial Hemp event titled… Farming Hemp for Profit. Today, it seems like a couple-years have passed by when you see how far the Industry has advanced here in North Carolina.

At Hemp Inc University, we have worked endlessly to bring you the best possible speakers, trainers and coaches. We feel this last event of the year… The Hemp Money Event, has the strongest line-up of speakers and will be our biggest and best event of 2017.

North Carolina has gotten the attention of the entire Hemp Industry and some of the biggest influencers are now wanting to get involved with us! We want to thank all of you for making this possible!!!

POD Training Sessions #1.

Money Green Pod


There are a lot of reasons why one has the passion for being involved in the Industrial Hemp movement; One big reason is the Economics. It’s one of the most common questions asked… How Much Money Can I Make?

Hemp Inc University is devoting a substantial amount of resources to give you an Industrial Hemp Economic Blueprint. This foundational segment is broken into three Economic divisions…

1. Hemp for Fiber

2. Hemp for Seeds

3. Hemp for CBD

Trend Graph

We will give you the economics on all phases including infrastructure costs on indoor Industrial Hemp Cannabinoid growing. How much you can expect to invest to develop your growing operation. As an example; You will learn the different price points and quality scales for indoor grow lights. Even in a small 800 SQFT facility, pricing can fluctuate by several thousand dollars.

Preston Gardner Topic Image

Preston Gardner is a true professional and respected throughout the Hemp industry with vast experience in the Hemp Analytic sector. Preston and Erik Larson are leading the research team to present your Economic Blueprint data for this event.
Unlike our past events, there are no speakers who we can call-up and present the Economic side of our business. There are no speakers who have this data.
So we have assembled a team of researchers to develop the information. Preston Gardner, Erik Larson and Bob Crumley will be presenting the results to you on December 2nd.
This has been the missing piece of the puzzle for all of us and we are excited to bring this data to you!

Market Potential

Finally, we wanted to present the overall market potential. In the "State of Hemp 2017" market report, the Hemp Business Journal estimated that the total retail value of all hemp products sold in the U.S. in 2016 hit at least $688 million. As per their estimates, the entire U.S. hemp industry could grow to $1.8 billion in sales by 2020, largely driven by hemp foods, body care and CBD-based products.

“The data demonstrates clearly that despite hemp remaining heavily restricted throughout the U.S., the industry is still growing quickly at twenty-two percent (22%) with hemp CBD products showing a 63 percent AGR in 2016”. Sean Murphy, founder and publisher of the Hemp Business Journal, said during a recent conversation.

Hemp Hub Buying and Selling Network

Establishing key relationships and securing agreements to sell your fiber, seeds, clones, flowers and oils is as important as anything else. The KEY fundamental is getting engaged at the very beginning of this modern Industrial Hemp movement.

Remember, this is just the beginning, Hemp has room to grow in every industry and it is us, together that can establish healthy roots in regenerative practices.
