Hemp Boot Camps Scheduled for Cities Throughout the US

The first two Hemp Boot Camps of 2020 will be held in Lincoln, Nebraska on February 1st and Des Moines, Iowa on February 29th

FC Global Events announced today that it is launching its 2020 Hemp Boot Camps, which will be held in cities in key agricultural states throughout the US.

This year’s first two Hemp Boot Camps will be held in Lincoln, Nebraska on February 1st, and Des Moines, Iowa on February 29th.

Attending a Hemp Boot Camp will provide attendees with the latest tools and information regarding regulations, cultivars, cultivation practices, harvesting, and the market for hemp fiber, seeds, and CBD, with a strong emphasis on the business and financial aspects of growing hemp.

Hemp was legalized a little over a year ago when the 2018 Farm Bill was signed into law, after having been illegal since 1937. Since then, the hemp industry and along with it, the hemp-derived CBD industry, have become two of America’s fastest-growing new industries. The general conclusion by the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) and industry leaders is that hemp will become a major American agricultural crop.

The market research firm, Grand View Research, Inc. projects that the global hemp market will reach $10.6 billion in annual sales by 2025. To put this in perspective, in 2018 the US soybean market generated revenues of $23 billion and the US corn market $51 billion.

Who should attend a Hemp Boot Camp:

  • Farmers growing other crops who would like to learn about cultivating hemp.

  • Farmers currently growing hemp interested in insight as to "what's working," and "what's not working" in the hemp industry.

  • Growers interested in the economics of cultivating hemp.

  • Growers interested in maximizing their revenues by selling hemp seeds, hemp seed oil, and flower or CBD oil.

  • Entrepreneurs seeking an early-to market advantage in the new and fast-growing hemp and CBD industries.

  • Investors seeking to better understand the new investment opportunities of hemp and CBD.

Initial 2020 Hemp Boot Camps:

  • Saturday, February 1, 2020 - Lincoln Nebraska ​

  • Saturday, February 29, 2020 - Des Moines, Iowa

  • Saturday, March 14, 2020 - Wichita, Kansas

  • Saturday, March 28, 2020 - Indianapolis, Indiana

  • Saturday, April 4, 2019 - Springfield, Illinois​​

  • Saturday, April 25, 2020 - Columbia, Missouri

Jeffrey Friedland, the CEO of FC Global Events, in announcing the Hemp Boot Camps, stated, “Until the 2018 Farm Bill, growing hemp in the United States had been illegal since 1937. Because of this, knowledge regarding the plant and cultivars and strains, growing and harvesting, sales of hemp fiber, seeds, and flower for CBD have been minimal.” Friedland also stated, “ Legal and regulatory issues are also a moving target, with roles for the US Department of Agriculture (USDA), the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) and state and local governments.”

Friedland also stated, “Hemp Boot Camps, with a significant focus on the financial aspects of growing hemp will enable anyone who is growing hemp, or wants to grow hemp to obtain the tools and knowledge to succeed as an early-to-market participant in what is becoming a major American agricultural crop.”
