Leaders in hemp industry gather to demonstrate “there’s more to hemp than CBD”

Longmont, Colo., Aug. 12, 2020 High Grade Hemp Seed, a global leader in the production and sales of premium hemp genetics, announces its sponsorship of Global Hemp Day on Aug. 26, 2020 beginning at 12:00 p.m. EDT. Global Hemp Day is being produced by CannaTech and The Arcview Group, and is billed as a “globally-oriented virtual hemp event” offering attendees a deep dive into the global hemp market, showcasing the scientists, entrepreneurs, companies, and products shaping the industry. 

The event expects to draw approximately 1000 participants from dozens of countries, with about 20 virtual sessions and 40 expert presenters, covering the entire value chain, emphasizing leading-edge practices, people, and products.

Until the 2020 season, the focus of High Grade Hemp Seed was on the U.S. market, which is projected to lead the global hemp market in acres under cultivation over the coming years, based on 2019 statistics. This year, High Grade announced expansion into European markets, and international events like Global Hemp Day are a critical part of the company’s strategy to open up its proven premium genetics to the global marketplace. High Grade’s participation and leadership in Global Hemp Days will help deliver updates on cutting edge research and standardization in hemp agriculture.

As the hemp industry grows, all indicators show that having well-rounded expertise in all aspects of hemp production including genetics, cultivation, extraction, supply chain and retail is key to success and risk management for farmers. High Grade will be participating on a hemp genetics panel during the global event to explore the importance of selecting the right genetics, recent advances in the hemp genetics space, and new innovations coming from hemp breeders.

“We’re looking at the entire value chain: addressing everything from what hemp looks like, to how and where it grows, all the way through to product manufacturing and branding,” says Saul Kaye, CEO and Founder of CannaTech. “We’ll take a journey from seeds to farming to product manufacturing. We’ll also hear from experts on global market size, legal, regulatory and compliance issues, and future market ‘predictions’.”

Kim Kovacs, CEO of The Arcview Group shared, “We are honored to be co-hosting this event and are prepared to equip the audience with the knowledge that will allow them to get further depth of understanding in the ever-evolving hemp industry. Event participants will have the opportunity to interact with many of the industry’s top experts and receive exclusive insights regarding the people, companies, and products driving growth and innovation in hemp around the world,” she stated.
