“We are honored to participate in the first-ever hemp panels and to guide this new conversation topic at the conference,” said Hemp, Inc. CEO Bruce Perlowin. “The state of North Carolina is quickly becoming the center of the industrial hemp industry and we are excited to be a part of its growth both on a regional and national level.”
Conference organizers created discussion opportunities about industrial hemp at this year’s event due to increased demand for hemp education from local farmers. Hemp, Inc. wholly-owned subsidiary Hemp University, LLC offers industrial hemp educational programs for farmers in North Carolina throughout the year, making Perlowin’s participation in this high-in-demand event a natural fit.
