Dr. Hicks is presenting in the Product Theater at noon and HempMeds has sponsored the A4M Commercial Workshop, "Everything You Wanted to Know about Cannabidiol, but Were Afraid to Ask"at 6:45pm with the presentation by Dr. Hicks.
"Hemp has been around since the beginning of mankind and yet, due to propaganda that began at the turn of the last century, it was once banned from many countries," says Charles Vest, VP of Communications for HempMeds™. "We are extremely excited for the opportunity to sponsor the professional education of leaders in the anti-aging field as this amazing, non-GMO plant makes a resurgence globally."
Vest continues, "We would like to thank the A4M for the ability to have a world-renowned guest speaker present this fascinating topic and are looking forward to the resulting heightened awareness of CBD-rich hemp oil as a result of HempMeds' participation in the A4M Orlando conference."
The A4M is dedicated to the advancement of technology to detect, prevent, and treat aging-related disease, and to promote research into methods to slow and optimize the human aging process. The A4M website reports the global anti-aging market to be estimated at $292 billion by 2015. The organization further estimates that the anti-aging market represents 10% of the world's population who are aged 60+ today, a figure that is projected to increase to 22% by 2050 as the "baby boomer" generation ages. Attendees at the conference that are interested in learning more about HempMeds can find the team at booth 305.
HempMeds'™ "DON'T MOVE" ad campaign will be featured at the conference's "Product Theater" to help counter mainstream media reports that CBD oil is only available in Colorado. For more information on CBD-rich hemp oil products, please visit:
