(Note - afternoon time is less structured and designed for flexibility with your schedule.  Format is more meet and greet, come and go as desired/needed.)
  • Sunday, July 29 – Hemp products such as medical cannabis and CBD are talked about a lot as helping people with different life challenges -- post-traumatic stress disorder and epilepsy, for instance.  Morning training sessions focus on understanding what hemp products are and what is known about their effectiveness.  Afternoon Expo includes more learning opportunities and specialized vendors.  You'll have the opportunity for one-on-one time with conference speakers, product vendors, and representatives from state and private agencies who can help you use nutrition, including cannabis supplements, to find your health. – 1:30-5PM.  (Note - afternoon time is less structured and designed for flexibility with your schedule.  Format is more meet and greet, come and go as desired/needed.)
