Phoenix, AZ–From June 3-9, Hemp Industries Association (HIA) and the hemp industry community will celebrate the 10th annual Hemp History Week by raising awareness and educating the public, according to a press release.
During the campaign, natural product retailers, hemp advocates and HIA chapters across the country will be hosting over 1,500 unique grassroots and retailer events, featuring educational components, hemp product sampling, knowledgeable speakers, documentary screenings and a letter-writing campaign plus community outreach at farmers’ markets, state lobbying days, spring plantings, and other exciting engagement opportunities, according to the release.
Leading hemp product manufacturers–including Bluebird Botanicals, Dr. Bronner’s, Manitoba Harvest, Nutiva, PlusCBD Oil, and Prana Principle–will offer discounts on select hemp products at participating retail outlets across the country.
“The passage of the 2018 Farm Bill makes this year’s Hemp History Week timelier than it has ever been. This is our opportunity to further illustrate that hemp is not just a counterculture novelty but a mainstream commodity,” said Colleen Keahey Lanier, executive director of HIA, in the press release. “This Hemp History Week, we come together in support of hemp farmers, in support of healthy, American-made products, and in support of a more sustainable future.”
