Is hemp-derived CBD legal in New York state, in all 50 states, or just in certain states?

Meeting Room 1A

  • Nationally renowned formulator, farmer, processor, and advocate Janel Ralph of Palmetto Synergistic Research LLC and Compassionate South Carolina will provide an engaging overview of the research and science of cannabidiol (CBD). Janel’s daughter, Harmony, suffers from a rare genetic condition called Lissencephaly. After several failed attempts to obtain a safe, tested, CBD-rich oil for her child, she decided she would need to become the source; and attendees will receive the tremendous benefit of what she has learned over the years from her extensive experience and study.

·         Breakout Session II: Hemp Farming Equipment & Key Lessons: Andrew Bish & Jeff Kostuik, B.Gs, T.Ag, CCA

Meeting Room 2B

  • I grew it; now what do I do with it?! Hemp is a unique and ancient crop with a number of equipment considerations for cultivation and harvesting methods. This is particularly underscored when discussing the different types of hemp crops – oilseed, fiber, extracts, and dual-purpose. Farm equipment expert Andrew Bish of Bish Enterprises and internationally renowned hemp agronomist Jeff Kostuik will discuss the range of equipment and concerns from the small farm to large, commercial farming.

·         Breakout Session III: The Hemp Seed Ag Feed Revolution & Journey to Making it Legal: Ethan Vorhes

Meeting Room 2A

  • Did you know that the federal Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has not approved industrial hemp for use in animal feeds despite its historical use, unique nutritional profile, and added value to the American farm and overall agricultural scheme? Hemp advocate and cattle farmer Ethan Vorhes is helping to lead the charge to allow hemp for animal feed through his tireless work with the Hemp Industries Association’s Hemp Ag Feed Coalition and will present a fascinating session on the process, challenges, and promise of FDA approval.

·        Breakout Session IV: Hempcrete & Hemp Building Materials ~ The Future is Happening Now: Moderator Lawrence Serbin with Panelists Bob Escher, Joy Beckerman, Mateen Pouyafar

Meeting Room 1B

It is mold-, rot-, fire- and pest-resistant; and is a carbon negative, carbon sequestering building material that is durable and recyclable, lasting hundreds of years. Joy Beckerman, instructor for Hemp Technologies which built the first fully-permitted hempcrete homes in the U.S., along with VT architect Bob Escher and up-and-comer hemp builder Mateen Pouyafar will share their knowledge moderated by hemp board manufacturer and hemp industry leader Lawrence Serbin of Hemp Traders.

  • Hemp is a unique and ancient crop and there are a multitude of considerations from soil preparation and genetics selection, to moisture and high nutrient needs, through harvesting and storage. Hemp is a high management crop that can yield high returns, but only if the farmer is aware of hemp’s unique needs and implements consistent, optimal practices to ensure a successful crop that can be brought to market.

This power-packed panel will address it all, including oilseed, fiber and extract genetics, as well as a run-through of the genetics procurement law and policy in New York State.

·         Breakout Session II: All Politics is Local & Veterans Ananda: Heroes are Local: David B. Bush, Esq. & Sarah Stenuf

  • Decades of activism and advocacy has resulted in the blossoming of lawful agricultural research pilot programs and other types of hemp programs across America, but our work to fully legalize hemp as a commercial agricultural commodity and ensure the ability to fulfill its promise in every jurisdiction is a marathon that will last for years to come. All of it can break down at the local level, and attorney David Bush provides the tools on how to get involved and stay involved in one’s own municipality. Nationally renowned veteran hemp advocate Sarah Stenuf will also share the struggle of veterans in our communities and how hemp can provide healing and abundance at the local level for the heroes that have served our country.

·         Breakout Session III: Navigating the Gauntlet of the CBD Market: Moderator Doug Fine with Panelists Janel Ralph, Chris Girard, Shira Adler, & Margaret L. Flewellen

Meeting Room 1B

  • The promising research and fast-spreading use of cannabidiol (CBD) is setting the world on fire with hope, results, and relief; and like any rapidly emerging market, the CBD market is fraught with pitfalls. Whether a consumer, cottage industry entrepreneur, or large-scale manufacturer, there is a gauntlet to navigate in order not only to identify high quality raw materials and products, but also to procure them. This incredible panel of hemp CBD industry leaders represent a full range of voices and experience, and they will share their hard-learned wisdom here.

He holds a double Associate’s Degree in Tribal Law and Sustainable Development and a Bachelor’s Degree in Democracy and Justice Studies with a minor in First Nations Studies from the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay.

·         Breakout Session I: Report from New York’s Heroic Hemp Lawmakers & Regulators: Assemblywoman Donna Lupardo, NY Dept of Ag. & Markets Policy Analyst Timothy Sweeney

Meeting Room 1A

  • New York boasts the most well-funded research pilot program in the U.S., with $10,000,000 in state funds being allocated for hemp production and processing grants through the Empire State Development’s Industrial Hemp Research Initiative, and New York is one of the top-producing hemp states in the U.S.! How did we get here, how do we stay on top, and how is New York’s Department of Agriculture & Markets keeping up with the hemp revolution? We are honored and proud to have hemp heroine Assemblywoman Donna Lupardo and NYDA Policy Analyst Tim Sweeney present at this important session.

·         Breakout Session II: Hemp Fiber Processing & the Stalk’s Extraordinary Potential: Trey Riddle, PhD & Jared W. Nelson, PhD

Meeting Room 2B

  • While the nutritional and general wellness value of the seed and extracts of hemp are more commonly known to those being introduced to this versatile crop, it is the fiber and cellulose within the incredible hemp stalk that may hold the most potential for economic stimulation, job growth, and planetary healing. Hemp fiber is the trillion-dollar industry that is coming, and hemp scientists and entrepreneurs Trey Riddle and Jared Nelson of Sunstrand, LLC will guide attendees through the journey and potential of the longest, strongest plant fiber on Earth.

·         Breakout Session III: Keys to Investing in the New Hemp Economy: Chris Girard

Meeting Room 2A

  • While hemp once thrived, it may as well be a brand-new crop in the U.S. thanks to decades of prohibition. Farmers are growing it despite the lack of infrastructure to bring their harvest to market, and entrepreneurs are investing in infrastructure despite the acreage to support large-scale processing and manufacturing. Like any emerging industry, there are learning curves, innocent mistakes, and those who play fast and loose. Chris Girard, CEO of Nevada-based Omega Hemp Company, hails from the State of Washington, where he was a principle part of the legal support team for several years at the premier Cannabis law firm Pelley Law Group. Chris was exposed to the observations and solution-seeking to every possible challenge that comes with newly legal, highly regulated industries and has worked on opposite sides of multiple mergers, acquisitions, and dissolution matters as both a senior paralegal and a private, subcontracted consultant, from which he developed his extensive skill set and profile as an expert in the spectrum of Cannabis industries.

·         Breakout Session IV: The Spectrum of Hemp’s Top Legal Considerations: Moderator Doug Fine with Panelists Courtney N. Moran, LL.M., David B. Bush, Esq., Peter G. Stavroupolus, Esq. & Steven Wood, Esq.

Meeting Room 1B

  • Hemp is just a plant, and it seems so very simple; but between the fact that we are breaking out of hysterical prohibition and the fact that this extraordinarily versatile crop serves a wide spectrum of industries that require safety and quality standards, there is a tremendous range of legal issues to address and navigate. The attorneys on this panel will share their top considerations and experiences and answer audience questions.
