Preston’s Cannabis career started from his roots in North Carolina where he witnessed the decline of the tobacco industry, putting his and many family farms out of business. From these experiences grew his life’s mission to help legalize Hemp & Cannabis to save our farmers, our people and our planet.  Since the 1990’s he has educated himself and others on the benefits of Cannabis. His career has led him to work with local, state and federal legislators and Universities. In 2015 he and his brother Calvin started Source Hemp which was instrumental in educating North Carolina Governmental Agencies and Universities on the vast potential of hemp industry and the North Carolina Hemp Bill, SB313, which in 2016 these efforts were validated with the Bill’s passing. In May of 2017, he and his family and friends planted the first legal Cannabis Plant in NC since prohibition on their farm.  From these moments Source Hemp has blossomed into a vertically integrated Hemp company that produces a variety of Cannabinoid-rich hemp products. Preston serves as the Program Director for the NOCO Hemp Expo which craft’s a dialog intended to inspire the rebirth of the Hemp Industry and creates a platform for the world’s Hemp Leaders to connect to the global audience and deliver their message.  Preston speaks internationally about Cannabis sharing his knowledge & experiences with the intention of creating a global understanding and acceptance of this miraculous plant, and the journey continues…
