Hemp is experiencing a global renaissance. Governments and industry are waking up to its positive impacts and uses in textiles, construction, food and more.

Join this session to hear about the effort to gather data, assemble collective knowledge domestically and build the infrastructure required to support the scaling up of this wonderful natural resource.
