CANNA Does NoCo!

Dubbed the “largest gathering of hemp industry professionals under one roof,” the NoCo Hemp Expo did not disappoint. Spurred by the recent passage of the Farm Bill and the explosion of CBD related products, this year’s event, the sixth annual, was by far the biggest and most well-attended to date.

Thursday’s Investor Forum, hosted by Hemp Industry Daily, kicked off the show. Speakers and panelists included industry experts, legal analysts, and investors. The takeaways were that despite massive growth anticipated, diligence is ever more important, especially due to the nascency of the sector.

Friday launched the two day expo, and the adjective heard over and over to best describe it is “overwhelming.” The number of new brands, extractors, media companies, service providers, and the like was simply staggering. The expo floor pulsed with energy amidst throngs of attendees.

A healthy amount of Minnesotans and Minnesota-based companies were in attendance. If you have any feedback from the show, feel free to share to z{at}canna.mn.
